Such a great spot to turn off and relax with stunning views. The hosts were so friendly and accomodating without being invasive. Go the French toast option! A spotless luxury stay at a great place.Highly reccommended.

Apart from the fantastic friendly accommodation and sensational view, a hidden gem is the Paihia Opua walkway which winds itself around the coast for a great 2 hour walk. It starts just 10minutes from Tarlton's. In summary the location, view and hospitality rates Tarltons as the best accommodation available.

The room was clean, comfortable and close to town. Breakfast was included and was set up on our balcony each morning. The food was great; especially the french toast. They...

I have stayed in many AirBnbs before and Tarlton's Lodge was definitely the best. The room was spacious, clean and extremely comfortable. The view was amazing and what's great is it offers something different throughout the day. My boyfriend and I felt so relaxed and rejuvenated after our stay! We were well taken care of by Peter and Katalina without...

We arrived at Tarltons Lodge soon after arriving in New Zealand. What an introduction. Our hosts Peter and Katalina couldn't have been nicer, nor more helpful. They suggested good things for us to do and see based on weather and our personal preferences. We took the Ferry over to Russell one day and walked the town, over the saddle to...

This was our second visit to Tarlton's Lodge, and it is still a fabulous place! The location is amazing with fabulous views over the bay, and the service including breakfast on the deck in glorious sunshine is such a treat. Natasha looked after us very well but we missed Dan 😔. We hope to be back before long.
