This apartment has it all! From comfy beds and linen, robes, to BBQ and even a coffee machine. The beach is a wet access across the stream but the views and wonderful walks are fabulous for a break, even if there for work as I was.
We had a great experience - stayed in the studio unit that looked out over the beach - beautifully clean and very well furnished, unbeatable position on the beach, BBQ and deck furniture including loungers on the veranda, great instructions and information provided by the hosts.
Thank you Ray for another Beautiful stay. We were up from Auckland to meet family and to get away from the city. So lovely the views peacefull relaxing just amazing thank you once again Ray Outstanding
My only regret was not finding this place earlier .. I have stayed at a few similar priced units before and they were literally dumps compared to this place .. it's not just the great location .. but all the little things .. from quality body wash to a real coffee machine with real milk etc .. fast wifi .. I was on business and appreciated it ... I never met the owners or anyone else in the 7 days I stayed .. I like my privacy .. definitely staying there again
When staying at the GEMS seaside lodge you cant help but be relaxed and refreshed. We stayed in the Haven apartment and the views are incredible! Ahipara is a sleepy little town with a nice coffee shop and great gateway town to the far north. We enjoyed driving up the beach and playing on small dunes with our toddler, surfing in front of the house and watching the sun set over the Ocean. The apartment was good with a toddler, had everything we needed for a weeks break, including handy things like a dishwasher and sky and we felt we could relax, refresh and unwind from our busy lives in the city.
We were so fortunate to have our wedding ceremony on the lawn at GEMS seaside lodge. We stayed 5 nights, booking out both apartments with family. GEMS is clean, spacious, comfortable and provides stunning views of the magical 90 mile. Hosts are super helpful and friendly and are wonderful to deal with. This place will always have a piece of our hearts.
The location of the this place, the place itself and the people that look after this place. They were all top notch. Could not have asked for a better place to be for a weekend away. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back!
Truly incredible I’ve never stayed in accommodation with such a magical outlook. So comfortable, fresh and warm and better yet the sun sets over the ocean in front of you!! Highly recommend this amazing restoring Gem! 🌅
This lodge was the perfect place to getaway from the hectic city and rest, relax and find refreshment! We stayed for three nights and enjoyed every single moment. We would've stayed longer if we could've!! It had everything that we needed to have a wonderful time away. I loved lounging on the chairs outside staring at the beautiful beach and listening to the beautiful sounds of the ocean waves. We also really enjoyed making full use of the boogie boards that were available for use. Despite being late April, the water was still quite warm and we enjoyed hours in the waves. We also enjoyed just staying inside the treasure trove lodge, it is beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable! The little kitchen had everything we needed to cook a simple delicious dinner each night. I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a place to retreat and find rest in the beauty of nature! We were so refreshed by the end of our time here. …
What a fabulous lodge, we stayed a week and was not long enough. Cannot wait to find our way back. Waking up and going to bed to the sound of the waves and beautiful views. Such a bonus! The Haven is well equipped and highly recommended.
