My son and I had a really great winter escape holiday in July at Sunset Waterfront Lodge in the July school holidays. We were treated like friends by the incredible hosts and staff, who were not only warm and friendly, but helpful to the extreme in a very non-imposing way. The chalet type-villa was super cute, perfectly self-contained and the... More

We spent the long Anzac weekend at the lodge and it was really fantastic. It was our first trip to the island and Bill and Shana made us feel like family, always looking after us with a smile and sharing some excellent local knowledge. The lodge itself is so beautiful and well maintained, and the location is just perfect. If... More

We stayed at Sunset lodge over the easter break for a special event. The location is stunning - over the road from the beach with great coffee & facilities at your front door. The service provided by hosts Bill & Shani was quite out standing - ensured that all was taken care of ahead of time. The event facility is... More

Service overall was outstanding, Shana and Bill the hosts went above our expectations. Set against beautiful natural NZ bush the lodge is perfect for relaxing and has fishing, tramping and the local wharf at its door step,... More

We stayed a couple of nights while spearfishing the southern end of the Island. the hosts were extremely accommodating and friendly. Helping us get luggage from the beach to the Villa with a trailer. Accommodation was very comfortable with a decent hot shower and comfortable bed. We will most certainly return, Highly recommended.

We stayed in the studio appartment for 5 nights. It has a direct view of the sea and is ideal for 2 people. There is a small shop and cafe just over the lawn outside the studio and we felt part of the community very quickly. It has a lovely, laid back atmosphere and We would recommend it to anyone.

As kayakers circumnavigating the island it was great have the lodge so close to the beach. What made our stay extra good was the extra mile Shana & Bill went to to make us feel welcome - more like visiting old friends. They even helped cart all our gear around to the ferry on departure.

Our first visit to Great Barrier Island, where we were warmly welcomed by our hosts. Our studio, overlooking the garden and out to the sea, couldn't have been nicer. Conveniently placed for a shop and cafe. Many thanks.

We were fortunate to be able to stay at this delightful motel/lodge on the Barrier, after a mix up with accommodation at another property. Travelling with a group of friends for a special weekend, we couldn't have been made to feel more welcome and at home than what we received. The Lodge is perfectly positioned opposite the beach, and we... More
