Amazing place to stay

Review of Paramata Lodge
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 19 Jan 2019via mobile
We arrived at this amazing lodge whilst it was raining after quite a long car journey and were warmly welcomed by Neil and Kathy into their amazing home.
We felt immediately at home too - the house was set within a beautiful landscape of bush, fruit trees, veg patches with streams cross crossing throughout.
We could hear the waves of the sea only a 15 minute walk away which sadly we didn't do on our short visit.
Neil is a sculpture and his work was scattered around their home and garden.
Kathy was an excellent house ensuring we had a meal which was delicious and breakfast - the best of my stay in NZ.
Best of all Kathy and Neil themselves - warm, welcoming down to earth we loved hearing about their lives.
It was a joy to stay here and we sincerely hope we can revisit.
All the facilities were superb- beautiful bedroom with large ensuite
Every room different with books to read and wonderful views out of every window
Thankyou xx

Hi,
When travelling the West Coast this is the ideal place to stay.

Awesome location and most beautiful home. Your hosts will spoil you and make you feel relaxed and rejuvenated.

Dinner and breakfast were served with a friendly ease with all dietary requirements catered for.

Going for a walk around the grounds was special.

Enjoy the experience.

We would gladly return to Paramata Lodge. It is a beautiful home, extremely comfortable rooms, fine food, and what a wonderful location, proximate to the beach. The hosts are warm, interesting, and fun. Just wish we could have stayed longer.

Beautiful accommodation with wonderful views, very comfortable , excellent food. Kathy and Neil are great hosts and very informative about the area for visiting as well as the local ecology. We stayed 2 nights as part of a tour of South Island a highlight for us.

Paramata Lodge is a truly amazing place. It is easy to access, just a few km. off the main highway; but it has a feeling of isolation and peacefulness. The Lodge is open and luxurious, with guests having access to numerous quiet sitting areas, a well stocked library, open decks, and spacious grounds. We opted to have Kathy prepare our dinners for us the two nights we were at the Lodge. She is an exceptional cook. They also have a well-stocked cellar of beer and wine for purchase. Kathy was also our guide for a day tour which included a walk through their wild but beautifully manicured gardens, a short kayak trip, a long walk along a remote beach, and a fascinating hike through an adjacent nature preserve. She shared her knowledge and love of this place and this land with enthusiasm, insight and wisdom. Two nights at this beautiful place was delightful, but three or four nights would have certainly been preferable. We traveled in NZ for four weeks - this was by far the best place that we stayed.

Our three night stay at Paramata lodge was excellent. Our room, the house, the meals, all were excellent.
The local beach is wild and private: great for long walks.
The hosts are very congenial, and have a wealth of knowledge of the local natural history.

Room tip: our second floor room, with views in 2 directions , was great
