An original kauri homestead houses Waipoua Lodge overlooking the vast Waipoua Forest it is both 'in' and 'of' this land. Kauri trees have been living here for 3,000 years and the forest hosts a wide variety of other native flaura and fauna including the iconic flightless Kiwi. The lodge has 4 suites each with outdoor deck or terrace from which to appreciate the beautiful setting, there is even a private native bush walk.
Your hosts Phil, Lily and Grace are all experienced in hospitality that ensures a warm and friendly welcome, and excellent service. The lodge is conveniently accessed directly from Highway 12, the Kauri Coast Highway, but there are no dining venues within at least a 30-40 minute drive so most guests choose the Dinner Bed and Breakfast option that includes a delicious four course a la carte evening meal.
