My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Waiheke Waterfront Lodge for two nights. The experience exceeded our expectations. The rooms where amazing, the service was outstanding and the breakfast was top class. So many added bonuses like e-bikes which we had loads of fun on, complimentary snacks and wine. You could not ask for better hosts who were there when you needed them but also gave you space. Highly recommend the waterfront lodge for your Waiheke get away.

If you want to treat yourself and experience true 5* service book into Waiheke waterfront boutique lodge where Pip and Andy will delight you. We visited Waiheke for the first time for my ladies special birthday and I’m so glad I chose Waiheke waterfront lodge as our base. Pip was so helpful in making arrangements and useful suggestions to make our trip enjoyable, really can’t thank her and Andy enough. You will be delighted by the rooms, view, location and facilities, they really have thought of everything, the breakfast was a delight and freshly cooked. The room was perfect and best of all the level of attention was perfect, there if you need anything or just wanted a chat but also discreetly apart so we really felt like we had this glorious place to ourselves. Treat yourself to the romance package it’s worth it. Thank you so much Pip and Andy. Dax and Jax

We loved our stay with Pip and Andy. They are the most friendly, helpful and considerate hosts. The rooms are hugely spacious with great views and light and airy with everything you need - as is the whole lodge. It’s so gorgeous! The garden is beautiful- private peaceful and birdsong. Pip and Andy make you feel so welcome, nothing is too much trouble and they have thought of everything to make your stay easy and comfortable. So many kind and thoughtful touches. We kayaked and used the ebikes and even borrowed 2 hats! This kind of generosity of spirit is a rare thing - we really do hope we can get back sometime

Absolutely loved our stay with Pip & Andy! They are incredible hosts, warm and hospitable making for a relaxing stay. The lodge itself is wonderful- the rooms are spacious and comfortable, the furnishings are on point- the bed is fantastic with a few pillow options to suit! The highlight of the stay has to be the breakfast that’s provided daily - take my hat off the hosts - Pip is a fab cook & Andy makes a wicked cup of coffee! Couldn’t recommend our stay enough- we will be back!!

Ok, so it is pricey, but it is after all 5 star and immaculate. From the really helpful advice at booking and then everything throughout our stay, we were treated to excellent hospitality. Pip gave guidance on ferries, on dining, on drives and walks. The offer of transfers and then a rental car was a saving on taking our own across on the car ferry. All the facilities were there - too many to list so check their webpage. The location is wonderful, the furnishings lovely, and the breakfast every bit the gourmet treat. I could go on....... You should just check it it out for yourself, and be delighted as we were.
