Waiwurrie is a destination! This fabulous lodge has commanding views of Mahinepua Bay. We thought we had arrived in Paradise! Vickie and Rodger were exceptional and amazing hosts who treated us to a taste-tempting three course dinner. Entrée was pâté made from Rodger's locally-caught and smoked marlin; the main was eye fillet beef; and dessert was Vickie's home-made manuka honey ice-cream; all washed down by professionally-made wine from grapes grown on the property. Breakfast was equally great with eggs from their hens and locally-sourced food. Our room on the ground floor was beautiful, with a separate but private bathroom. A truly wonderful stay - we would go back in a blink! Thank you both.
The stay at the Waiwurrie Coastal Farm Lodge was the end of our one-month trip through New Zealand. It was a great ending. Vickie and Rodger are very good hosts. We felt at home. The lovely dog Zuker also contributed to this. Vickie cooks excellently. Thank you, we will never forget your stay.
The most beautiful place of New Zealand. The location is on a hill and the view is over two bays. The room is complete with a good bathroom and a balcony with also view over the bay. In the surrounding is a lot to do, so you can do a lot of activities. The hosts are very friendly and they do everything to make you feel free and comfortably. The breakfast and dinner are nice and cozy. We came as a guest, we leave as a friend. We have been 4 nights and it was wonderful!
We had a fantastic stay with Vicki and Roger at Waiwurrie Lodge who really were exceptional hosts. The location and proximity to secluded beaches only minutes away on the property was a pleasant surprise and the dinner they provided and their own wine certainly a real treat as great people and conversationalisits. Our trip was centered around golfing at Kauri Cliffs and this is the closest quality lodge being a 15 minute drive away on good roads. The entry to the property is a little difficult to find but you wont be dissapointed with the experiance and hospitality. Room and bathroom had great views, very clean and comfortable For us it was exceptional value in a great location with lovely hosts and if returnning will stay for 3 nights of more..
