About Karen & Daryl
Your hosts Daryl and Karen relocated to Northland to be closer to family and enjoy a quieter lifestyle than their previous lives as a cabinetmaker and police officer allowed. They were delighted when they bought their amazing property and realised it was such a special spot that it should be shared. So they set about planning and creating an idyllic self-contained retreat. Skylark Lodge has just been completed (to their exacting standards) and is now ready for you to enjoy.

This property is absolutely amazing. Beautiful house, amazing view, and the most wonderful hosts. We felt warmed and welcomed our entire stay. They’re also only a 30min drive to the bay of Island coast. You get tranquil surroundings in the morning and night while you’re at the house without a long drive to all the attractions in the area. If we’re ever lucky enough to come back to NZ and this area we will absolutely stay here again!
This was truely a boutique accommodation experience!
Awesome ever-changing panoramic views over the country-side from every room, hot tub under the stars, accomodating stone bath, daily breakfast, the list goes on...Although the accommodation is in view and close to the hosts' house, our hosts were very respectful of our privacy. It was perfect for our wedding anniversary. Highly recommend!
Thank you Naomi and Stuart, it was our pleasure to host you. Thank you for choosing Skylark Lodge for your special celebration and for leaving the Lodge exactly as you found it. Best wishes and one day we hope to see you both back again. Karen & Daryl
Excellent process from start to finish. Hosts are amazing. It was a perfect get away. Would highly recommend and definitely return
Thank you both for your fabulous review. We enjoyed having you here at Skylark Lodge. It was so great being able to share the helicopter experience with you too :). Best wishes for your business and we hope to see you both back again. Karen & Daryl
5 star destination!
Cannot recommend this place highly enough - highlights of our stay included the spa (particularly under the night sky), incredible views, very active bird life and the beautiful stone bath. The hosts are so welcoming and have an incredible commitment to quality. This is a five star destination.
Thank you both for the fabulous review. We loved having you stay at Skylark Lodge. It is guests like you who we have created all of it for - those who appreciate what there is to offer and all the hard work and love gone into the space. We wish you all the best for your exciting times ahead. We would welcome you back any time!
Beautiful place- thank you
Piece of Paradise
What an amazing place to spend a relaxing & romantic time with your loved one celebrating 16 years of marriage. Beautiful modern place that has everything you can ask for & more. The most amazing Bathroom with stone bath looking out over the valley.
Very peaceful & private place.
Many Thanks to the Friendly hosts Daryl & Karen for a wonderful breakfast every morning & looking after our requests.
Will be back for sure to enjoy it all over again.
