Located a short distance from the Waikawa Marina in the beautiful Queen Charlotte Sound, the Buccaneer Lodge offers spacious, modern, en-suite rooms with a balcony that makes the most of the outlook. So after an adventurous day walking the Queen Charlotte Track or maybe kayaking in the sounds, sit and enjoy a cold glass of local Sauvignon Blanc while taking in the peaceful marina and sea views. The Buccaneer Lodge is owner operated and is a warm, friendly, comfortable home away from home. Located close to local walks, restaurant, cafe, bar and safe swimming beach in beautiful Waikawa Bay.

It is quite incredible that you believe you are the only person on booking.com and Tripadvisor that is giving factual reviews. I have found in my years travelling that most people judge accommodation on the facilities and the people you meet and interact with. When...More
