We stayed in the cottage and we did not want to leave. Colleen and Ashley were consummate hosts and their willingness to share everything about their home was magical. The two platters they delivered for dinner were excellent and so lovely to eat in the comfort of the cottage.

How lovely to know that you so enjoyed the cottage, its comfort and views, that you spent as much time as you could there. Our snack platters are very popular !

Thank you for this lovely review. We do like to make our guests feel at home and are very pleased to see that we achieved this with you! The Lodge is 7 kms from the town of Paihia so it is very easy to get there for all the trips and tours provided, and if our guests have another day to spend in the area, we are about 20 minutes from Kerikeri which has a lot of New Zealand history in Kemp House and the Stone Store, plus wonderful walks and waterfalls- so much to do, so little time! It is very good to know that you enjoyed your stay with us as much as you did. Kind regards, Colleen and Ashley
