Could not fault the accommodation or service. Our genial hosts went out of their way to assist and recommended many good places to visit in the vicinity and booked them for us The view from the gardens is stunning and the lodge is within walking distance of a couple of good restaurants and bars. What more could you want

The setting and views are magnificent. The home and bedroom facilities as good as you can get. The owners Lorraine and Bill are Kiwi born, caring and polite. First class breakfast with a personal touch. Spoil yourselves and take in a little bit of heaven in the north of the Coromandel Peninsula.

. . . and warmly, welcoming hosts. This was our first night in New Zealand and we'd driven straight from Auckland airport. Exhausted after driving the twists and turns of the Coromandel Coast, but loving the views and the tumbling nasturtiums, we arrived to be greeted by the delightful Lorraine and Bill. How lucky we felt as we sat in...

At the start of a tour around New Zealand, we couldn't have wished for a better place to stay. Bill and Lorraine ensure that all guests are well looked after including a good breakfast. We stayed in the main house with stunning views over the sea....heavenly

Bill and Lorraine were great hosts at the lodge. We stayed in a little annex just above the main house overlooking the bay. We wanted for nothing, the studio was well equipped. Full breakfasts were cooked by Lorraine, served by Bill and eaten either on the terrace or in the main living area. Bill was particularly helpful with ideas of...

fantastic location with beautiful view over the bay. Pleasant and very helpful owners. Please note: it is a BandB and not a hotel; some guests apparently think they can eat there in the evening. There are few restaurants in the vicinity so eat on the way or take food to eat/prepare on site. It is a marvelous start for visiting...
