Kathy and Neil have created a bush clad retreat that isa pleasure to visit. Both are interesting people in their own rights and we had some wide ranging conversations together. Bedroom is comfortable and spotless and we had a lovely home cooked meal there. Highly recommend.

We had booked in Papamata Lodge with Kathy and Neil before the Covid lockdown started and were fortunate to stay with them in the last days of "life before lockdown". Kathy was away and kindly let us stay at Paramata, Neil who apparently doesn't normally do too much with guests has been hiding his light under a bushel. We had such a great time, chatting and learning about the area and life on the west coast, Neil's sculptures are original, inspirational and tactile. Ask Neil to take you round the garden and beach, you may even meet Cedric (don't ask!) we felt truly at home. To say that Paramata is comfortable is an understatement, such thought has gone into the design and building of everything that everything is perfect down to the finest detail, wood everywhere, much of it reclaimed reflects Kathy and Neil's attitudes to life and the environment. A large open plan kitchen and living room where we were made to feel very much at home. Comfortable bedroom with large comfortable bed and large bathroom allowed us to relax wonderfully. The library with a huge range interesting books is a great plus. We spent our lockdown in New Zealand in Blenheim but could have been equally comfortable here. It is worth a trip down the west coast just to go to Paramata.

Response from Paramata, Owner at Paramata Lodge
Responded 16 Jun 2020
Dear Simon and Anne I should have thanked you sooner for this wonderful review that you have most thoughtfully written. Wasn't it funny how well this all turned out for all of us! I was sad that I missed you after hearing about the good time Neil had and how nice you guys were! That will teach me for going travelling and leaving him behind! We are currently wondering what has happened to you. Are you still in NZ and still in Blenheim? We'd love to hear from you. We're open again for business now after the lockdown. As you can imagine having loads of outside jobs to do, lockdown was easy and productive without any interruptions. Guests are now trickling back and they continue to love the place, while we enjoy the stimulating conversations they bring. Who knows how it will go. We are lucky to be able to be flexible and have no great concerns. We wish the same for you. Thanks again for the review and we look forward to hearing from you. Kathy....... & Neil

Kathy and Neil are gracious hosts who have a beautiful property! The home is comfortable, clean, and full of unique artwork created by Neil. Kathy and Neil made us feel welcome and provided wonderful recommendations of places to explore so we could get a good sense of the highlights in the area. We especially enjoyed our day hike with Kathy. Being unfamiliar with the plants and animals of NZ, Kathy was able to answer all of our questions throughout the day. We enjoyed having Kathy cook a delicious meal for us the first night we arrived, and breakfasts were a treat as well. We enthusiastically recommend Paramata Lodge!

Paramata Lodge is absolutely beautiful! We really enjoyed our time getting to know Kathy, lounging in the sun on the deck and exploring the property and nearby native bush. The best part was taking a sunset walk on the beach where we spotted a seal fishing in the surf.
