Aotea Lodge
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Beautiful little place on Great Barrier, and a lovely host who was more than willing to help with our every wish. So much thought put into things like the breakfast, especially when you can't just nip to the nearest countdown! It's solar powered so I imagine it could be a little chilly in winter - we put extra blankets on the bed etc and were fine. There's an amazing restaurant 50 metres down the road called Earthsong that Fiona recommended, you have to book and they'll pick you up (there's a 1km long 4wd driveway to it!) it was incredible. Loved our stay, extremely handy to be able to rent a car (just ask and it can be organised from Aotea Lodge) and loved the grounds too. Bring shampoo as it's not provided (we presumed it would be and had to go buy some) but such a small niggle and I'm sure we have been able to borrow some if needed! Go and stay there, it's a perfect quiet retreat :-)
