Quite a steep track up to Susie and Martin's beautiful house. Stay in Room 1 if you can, you can sit in bed and look down to the Queen Charlotte Sound, it is magical. If not Room 1 then you can enjoy this view from the fantastic deck. Susie and Martin are great hosts and very involved in your stay,...

Susie is a gifted...

Thank you for your lovely review. The weather has been a little less summery than usual but the views are still spectacular and sitting in the hot tube surrounded by bubbles and wonderful views is pretty exceptional. We do hope you will come again in the near future to explore more of this wonderful region.

Warm sociable hosts. House was really nice. We had plenty of room. The bed was very comfortable and the linen was very good quality. Breakfast was delicious as was a BBQ that we attended with other guests to toast in 2017

Apart from the more obvious things such as the unbelievable views, it is the friendliness, the feeling that nothing is too much trouble & the little extras that make Okiwa Bay Lodge so special! On arrival we were offered a glass of wine & nibbles on the deck overlooking the bay. We had taken up the option of dinner there...
