Our stay has been quite some time ago already but I haven't stopped thinking of it since. Although there are many accurate reviews already, or should I say recommendations, I believe this place is so special that there will never be enough 5-star reviews to honour its excellence. The suites are spacious and cosy, equipped with anything you may need....

Anthea and Brian made us feel at home in their beautiful B&B. They are the best host you can hope for, Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer! We recommend Bell Bird Lodge to any couple travelling through Kaiteriteri.

We stayed 2 nights at Bellbird Lodge in March, 2017 and found, quite possibly, the most exquisite B+B we have ever had the pleasure to stay with. Gracious hosts, lovely views, food and lodge were spectacular. Can't wait to visit Anthea and Brian again.

We stopped in Kaiteriteri towards the end of our 2-week honeymoon and are glad we chose to stay at the Belbird Lodge. Anthea and Brian were a wealth of information, and extremely accommodating when it came to making dinner reservations or booking excursions. Anthea's food from the breakfast to the canapes to the turn-down chocolates were amazing and something we'll...

We recently stayed at Bellbird Lodge on the first night of our honeymoon and were looked after so well by Anthea and Brian in their beautiful accommodation. They made us feel very special and went beyond the call of duty with their welcoming "chocolate heart brownies", nibbles and wine tasting prior to dinner, booking our dinner reservation for us, being...

The house is situated in a high position overlooking the sea with superb views. It was spotlessly clean and food was excellent. (Not good for the diet but who diets on holiday!). Great breakfast and superb canapes with wine in the evening. Brian and Anthea treated us like friends. They made bookings for activities and evening meals and gave us...

We were in NZ for 3 weeks staying at many wonderful places. Bellbird Lodge was truly the best. If you were to script a place to stay it would not surpass our experience. The view was so amazing, I felt it was a painting and not real. The breakfasts were made with local fruit and were truly gourmet. In the...

My wife and I had a month-long trip to New Zealand in Feb/March 2017, and one of the clear highlights of our trip was our two-day stay at Bellbird Lodge.
