We stayed in a cabin with our dog for a week and we just loved it. Claus and Inga made us feel most welcome. The cabin was super clean and comfortable with everything we could possible want and the added bonus was opening the french doors to a deck and looking straight into an orange grove. Complimentary oranges were waiting for us on arrival and they were delicious. We recommend this accommodation highly - well worth the stay and fabulous value.

So quiet, peaceful and relaxing place to stay. The cottage was clean and had everything you needed for a short stay. Kraus and his dog were super hosts. Had to cut our stay short because of the Coronavirus so hope to get up there again some day.

Looked all good on booking.com so went ahead a booked. 1 hour before checkin opened on the day of arrival I get a phone call saying 'I'm not gonna be here when you arrive but I'll tell the 2 random guys staying here your details and they will show you to your room'. No mention of keys or security at all. When I got there it looked run down and unappealing. I made the decision to cut my losses and stay safe and went elsewhere. Certainly not a professional place to stay.

Hello Rebecca, We are sorry that you had a bad experience and didn't like the appearance of our place. We do not give out your personal details to other people but we wanted to make sure someone shows you to your room at arrival as we were out when you arrived. There was no mention of a key because the main house does not have any keys. It is very safe here. The lodge is in a country setting and because we live on site we feel that there is no need for keys or added security features. Not sure what you mean with a professional place to stay but we have run the lodge for over 20 years with many very satisfied guests.

A charming place with charming hosts. Set on 6 acres of organic orange groves complete with free range hens, pukeko by the score it is private and very quiet yet only a couple of kilometres to down town Kerikeri. Excellent accommodation and very comfortable beds. Top spot, will come again.
