We spent 11 very relaxing days and nights around Xmas time at Tarlton Lodge. The views across Waikare Inlet and towards Paihia harbour are superb. One morning Peter pointed out a pod of orcas (killer whales) herding manta rays up Waikare Inlet. A unique and magnificent sight, just as we were enjoying one of Katalina's delicious breakfasts. We just thoroughly enjoyed our stay and socializing with Peter and Katalina (and their family at Xmas time). They are very hospitable and a great source of information on the Bay of Islands as well as the maritime history of exploration of the islands of Oceania, especially by Cook (on which Peter is an expert).
Thank you Peter and Katalina.More
