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...

Only a short walk to the main strip and ferry. Glorious sunrise views and amazing to watch the guy fawks fireworks in Russell across the bay. Great...

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.

Fantastic place to stay. If we ever come back to Paihia I would definitely stay again. Tash has looked after us really well and made us feel very welcome. Nothing seems to be too much trouble. The breakfasts are lovely and served on your private balcony and the room is beautifully appointed. Great spa on the balcony and when the...

We stayed here on the last stint of our honeymoon and it really was an amazing end!

The photos of the lodge are amazing but in real life it's even better. A few minutes from Paihia town but so peaceful you can hear the waves lapping on the beach when you turn your spa bath off!
