We stayed at Te Whau Lodge as a mini-break from the kids for two nights. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the lodge. The hospitality was excellent, food amazing, views astounding and overall a great experience. Would highly recommend.

The room, service, views, location, and overall experience at Te Whau Lodge combined to make our trip the best we've ever had. What a place, the four-course breakfast every morning is brilliant, and the service from the friendly hosts (who are very interesting to chat to, and are clearly born to be in the industry - wonderful people) made our honeymoon unforgettable. This is absolutely a place we're going to come back to with fond memories, and is one of the best places to visit on Waiheke.

Our stay was great! It was a bit of a last minute "honeymoon" reservation post wedding, so we didn't really know what to expect. Everything ran so smoothly. The host picked us up from the ferry terminal, and drove us to the accommodation. The food was fabulous! Both a four course dinner the night we arrived, and a four course breakfast the next morning! We were even able to rent a car from the host for the time we were staying there, and they gave us beach chairs, and towels. Highly highly recommend staying here!

Well, what can one say when one is already on a high from their wedding? I can tell you, Chris and Tara kept the momentum going and gave us an unbelievable stay to remember and added to our already blessed wedding journey. Everything was made so easy, from the friendly greeting at the Wharf, right through to the 4 course dinner, massages, extatic views and that was only the 1st night there. You wake up on a ridge over looking Kennedys point and the the expanse of bays that are second to none. My wife and I had the Honeymoon package which had included a winery tour, a must if you are on the island. Just one of the many experiences the lodge has for their visitors and it was just amazing, I'll review that separately. The lodge is nestled high on the ridge and offers spectacular views. It's peaceful and was exactly what my new wife and I needed to just listen to each other and breathe after all the hustle and bustle of the wedding festivities. The rooms were fantastic, rustic and very welcoming. The beds were comfy and you were able to seclude yourself away from any of the other visitors there. You have your own deck where you could curl up and read, have a coffee or wine and enjoy some relaxation. All in all, the hosts made you feel like you were the most important people in the world, absolutely friendly funny banter, informative and extremely helpful with anything that you wanted. The in-house classically trained Chef was such a delight to have. The experience that my new wife and I had is such a fantastic memory that we will share as our 1st big memory as a married couple. As food lovers we have tried many culinary cuisines and this did not disappoint. From freshly seared scallops, duck and lamb to follow, it was just an absolute treat. You felt like you were at home, being waited on and pampered, right down to the friendly dog, Gary, being there to pat and be greated in the morning by. If you're looking for a place to stay that offers an easy, no fuss stress free holiday whilst being in a beautiful setting with wonderful vistas and friendly people around then choose Te Whau Lodge. We will definitely return 100 percent. A massive thank you to Chris and Tara. Rick
