Thankyou for taking the time to place your kind review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope you stay again the future. The Sea Fever scenic harbour cruise is certainly one of our "must do" recommendations.

The deck and pool in front of our room provided a wonderful ever changing view of Whangaroa Harbour. Early one morning I climbed the hill behind, steep but well worth the effort to get views of...

Waimanu Lodge is simply bewitching. Set in an enchanting and captivating part of NZ, this lodge provided us with the chance to relax, unwind and recharge in remarkable comfort.

Judy and Shaun were great hosts who made our stay a wonderful time of rest and relaxation. Their attention to detail and our wellbeing was unobtrusive and yet five star. The location is a beautiful example of New Zealand's best and the community has a touch of old world charm. It is also a very good base from which to...

My friends and I spent 3 nights at Waimanu and we just raved about the place. The owners are incredibly thoughtful and we had a lot of extras in the rooms. The setting is perfect, very quiet and the views will amaze. Very high standard of presentation and cleanliness.

Our Northland holiday accommodation is purpose built and comprises two modern self contained studio suites opening directly out onto a lounging deck, private spa and swimming pool, all with expansive harbour views.
