We stayed here for one night to break our drive from Kauri Cliffs to Huka Lodge. We wish we'd booked for two nights. What an absolute gem of a place. We were made to feel so welcome from the minute we arrived. We had a lovely cheese and cold meat platter for lunch accompanied by some lovely wine. The views...

We stayed at Takatu Lodge for 2 nights as a good halfway house between Kauri Cliffs and Huka Lodge. Sharon was a fantastic host, the breakfasts were great and she cooks an amazing dinner. Unfortunately we didn't realise that dinner was available until the 2nd night as it doesn't seem to advertise this on the website. There aren't really many...

What a great way to end our trip in NZ by staying at Takatu for 3 nights. After a long drive up, Sharon & team were very welcoming with wine & cheese ready at our arrival to immediately unwind. The property itself is very lovely and quiet so great for those looking to relax and enjoy the surrounding vineyard and...

As some of the other reviewers have stated, this place is truly a hidden gem, and we basically added it on to our itinerary to give us a break from driving all the way from the Bay of Islands to Rotorua, and our travel agent suggested a one night stay here at Takatu Vineyard and lodge. The moment we arrived...

What a treat. Tremendous views. Gorgeous location. Excellent wines. Great Food. Perfect rooms. Personal touch by Sharon is beyond anything we have experienced for a long time. One feels at home from the moment you step out of your car.

We were so warmly welcomed to this beautiful place: delicious food, wine & interesting engaging company. A gem of a place. Thoroughly recommend. And take advantage of the massage - her massage was excellent.

Our agent suggested it almost by default as a break en route to Bay of Islands. Mistake!! It is stunning. Accommodation is awesome. Food prepared by Sharon was delightful. Wine from their own vineyard exceptional. The red I plan to ship to UK. Our only regret is we only had one night. We'd spend a week here and explore the...

This is a gem sitting on the edge of a melting pot of eclectic rural seaborne country lifestyle. Nestled along rolling hillsides and an abundance of vineyards you think to yourself, 'Whats one more?'.But this is a vineyard with a difference and this coming from a New Zealander with 30 yrs in the hospitality trade , that is a big...

The Lodge is very comfortable with wonderful views down to the Haruki Gulf. Sharon is an excellent host, cook and wine connoisseur. She prepared us an excellent platter washed down with pinot gris from the vineyard -delicious! we only wished we could have stayed longer.
