We stayed here on our mini-honeymoon and what a fantastic experience. The hosts were helpful, friendly and chatty, the food wonderful, and the views to die for. Our room was upgraded and the space well presented with beautiful furnishings and everything we needed. We enjoyed hours of 'watching the world go by' from the deck, room and jacuzzi. The fact...

My fiance and I recently stayed at Huntaway Lodge when we travelled up north for a wedding. The lodge is beautiful and the views are stunning. Our room was very clean and comfortable. David was an incredible host and went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable - nothing was too much trouble. We wish we could've stayed...

Beautiful lodge with amazing views. David was a wonderful host and did everything to make our stay memorable. Great spacious room in The Retreat with fantastic bathroom. The wonderful meals cooked by Mary Ann were delicious. The attention to detail was wonderful as we ate on the terrace watching the reflection of the moon in the bay.

The lodge is perched high above beautiful coastal scenery and offers privacy and all home comforts in stylish surroundings. Our hosts, David and Mary went out of their way to meet our every need and Min the...

What an experience, a great private lodge sitting on top of the mountain to give a view over the bays which are mesmerizing it was good to have a 4x4, the steep road up was easier with that rented car, anyways, large rooms with a contemporary interior, bright fresh colours, large windows, super bathrooms , big balcony and terrace plus...

I intended to write this review when we returned home from New Zealand but got distracted planning our next trip. Last night showing friends pictures from our trip and seeing again the spectacular view from the deck of Huntaway Lodge where we enjoyed breakfast and dinner, reminded me I never wrote a review on this fantastic lodge. The second to...

You arrive in Paradise. Big and nicely furnished house and rooms. Diana is a wonderful host, Victoria a great chef. The views stunning. We were really spoilt and felt like home. Kauri Cliff is only 10 minutes away. We surely go back to Huntaway Lodge and highly recommend this unique Lodge

Huntaway Lodge was our first stop on our honeymoon. We were astounded by the beauty of the Bay of Islands and Huntaway's location atop a hill allowed us to enjoy fantastic views from our light-filled room, private balcony, and the lodge's porch dining area. While it has a remote feeling, Huntaway is walking/jogging distance (though a steep track!) from several...
