We were blown away by the high standard of everything here- an amazing view & outstanding accommodation, with so many little unexpected extras that made our stay extra comfortable. Even though you are part of the main home, the owners give you complete privacy to enjoy your surroundings. With a spa, heated pool, stunning views, big comfortable room, kitchenette (with...

When we first walked up the steps to the deck we were blown away by the amazing view of Whangaroa Harbour. We stayed 5 nights and were lucky to have beautiful weather most of the time so we were able to take advantage of the pool and spa, but when it did rain the room was really comfortable and we...

We had been warned about the drive up to Waimanu Lodge - foolishly we did not buy our provisions prior to our arrival for our two night stay. But the snacks provided were sufficient for our evening meal. The friendliness of the welcome together with the accommodation were outstanding and the view breathtaking. John and Susan, France

We stayed at Waimanu Lodge for two nights and wished we could have stayed longer. It was a bit off the beaten track which we loved because it was nice and quiet and we could enjoy the gorgeous view and the wild life in the area. We were warmly greeted and personally shown around then left to enjoy our stay....

A perfect place to get away from it all and relax. Active or static there is something for everyone in this area of Northland. Take some provisions and lock up the car. You don't have to go anywhere. Just sit on the deck by the pool (or indoors if the weather is not so good) and watch the amazing changing...

Our Northland holiday accommodation is purpose built and comprises two modern self contained studio suites opening directly out onto a lounging deck, private spa and swimming pool, all with expansive harbour views.
