What an amazing find. We were so lucky to be able to stay here during our recent trip to New Zealand. John and Karla were so hospitable; welcoming and only too pleased to help. Very comfortable accommodation and delicious food. We enjoyed a delightful fresh breakfast each morning and a delicious meal on one evening. Karla went out of her...

We had a couple of nights at Tauranga Lodge and we could have stayed longer. Karla and John are very warm and welcoming. They pay attention to detail and made our stay so relaxing. Our room was very comfortable and decorated to a high standard. Breakfast was a feast with fresh fruit salad, home made muesli and a great choice...

A truly fabulous find. Ok, It is a 9km drive from Tauranga and the road is steep and windy, but my goodness the views when you arrive at the lodge, take your breath away. The house and outdoor space (including hot tub) are absolutely fabulous and you are warmly invited to use them as your own. You will feel truly...

We are so lucky to live and work in such a special part of New Zealand. There is nothing more enjoyable for John and I than to share our paradise with guests such as you two. Being only 45 minutes to Rotorua and Hobbiton and an 1 hr 20 to Whakatane makes it great to be able to have adventures...

If you don't want to be treated like a king & queen, then i would suggest you look somewhere else to stay! As soon as we arrived, Karla & john were there to greet us & instantly made us feel welcome, even though we had arrived a little earlier than expected. I would definitely recommend to have at least one...

Sounds a bit exaggerated but it's not. We chose Tauranga lodge for the first few nights of our honeymoon. From the moment we arrived it was bliss.

I stayed with two business colleagues at Tauranga Lodge last week. We were picked up from the airport by John (the owner), and on arrival we were 'blown away' by the lodge, the views, and the warm hospitality from his wife Karla. The rooms were very comfortable and well appointed and the ensuite bathrooms were good too. The Lodge is...
