After a not so pleasant two night stay elsewhere on the Island arriving at the lodge on a beautiful sunny afternoon was a real relief. A lovely bay so sheltered and quiet. We swam off the wharf and from a little stoney bay just out from the lodge. The room we had was studio shared deck area facing the water. It was clean and well appointed. The hosts and restaurant staff were stunning such authentic service genuinely happy to make us happy. Get overseas kiwis and visit our local Island and soak up quintessential kiwi.

Wow what an outlook from the deck! The lodge is in an awesome location and the rooms had stunning views. Rooms were very nice and clean and had everything we needed. Food was beautifully presented and the service from the younger members of staff was friendly and genuine. Only real grumble was not being told rooms weren't serviced daily nor fresh towels provided which could have been avoided if we had been told this upon arrival

We selected the Lodge for a quiet R & R short stay and were welcomed and hosted by Angeline and Clive who understood and we were treated royally beyond our expectations. Delightful accommodation and excellent restaurant. The peace and quiet , surrounded by magnificent native bush with harbor views were refreshing. A lot of local history in this harbor from whaling, timber industry, fishing and even some mining were of great interest. Recommend you visit.

We stayed on a boat in Whangaparapara Harbour to join family who were staying at the lodge. The setting was very relaxing and a nice spot for kids to play on the lawn. Easy to tie up the dinghy to the wharf a short walk away. We ate at the lodge - great food. One night they even cooked up our filleted snapper catch for us. Small store for supplies and bait. Kauri falls 30 min walk away is a nice waterfall pool to swim in. Great place to call in on the boat.

A small group of us recently stayed at Great Barrier Lodge, our expectations were blown out of the water! The hosts (Angeline, Clive & Jack) were very hospitable and went out of their way to make our stay amazing! We took advantage of the package that Angeline put together this included meals, accommodation, rental vehicles and a half day fishing charter! Would totally recommend this place and we look forward to returning again soon.
