Aotea Lodge is owned by Fiona who is very helpful and great with advise and keeps in touch as she lives in part of the Lodge. We found it very handy to Tryphena where the ferry landed. It is also walking distance to a club, and beach. We had our own vehicle which was handy to

Hi Murray Thank you for your amazing review. It was lovely to meet you both and it is great that you enjoyed the island and your stay at the lodge. Arranging the travel for my guests is something I really enjoy doing. It is important that visitors have an enjoyable and memorable trip to the island as well as a pleasant stay at the lodge. Visitors planning their trip may not be aware of all the options available to them and can find information inaccurate or out of date. I have all the up to date details on flights and ferries and we have our own rental cars at the lodge for guests to use. It is therefore easy for me to arrange the best travel options for my guests. Thanks again for choosing to stay at Aotea Lodge. Regards Fiona

"all rooms are similarly quiet as it is a very quiet and nice island"
"Power on Great Barrier is solar so no hair dryers or microwaves can be used. This apartment has no tv and wifi and 4g a little intermittent. But this is the nature of the experience. The room is tight but cosy. We loved our time at Aotea Lodge and will be back!"
"Three lodges to choose from. One with Lounge and kitchen, we booked the room and kitchenette and another with 4 bunks and master room."
"Fiona will help with what you need as the units are very different and cater for different needs.U1 is private with lovely outside area."
"Specify room with attached lounge with sofas"
