We very quickly fell in love with the Pawhaoa Bay Lodge. The setting is absolutely gorgeous. Our hosts Bill and Claire Hurst were charming. We stayed for dinner both nights we were at the Lodge, as we didn't want to make the drive at night to the closest restaurant. Great choice as Claire is an excellent chef and provided us...

We have just spent the most wonderful six days at Pawhaoa Bay Lodge. The location is idyllic and the tranquility is all encompassing. Our hosts Claire and Bill couldn't possibly have looked after us any better and Claire is a superb chef. They were so helpful with ideas for places to visit too. We will really miss watching the fantastic...

This is a beautiful place to just relax and take in the beautiful surroundings. The lodge is stunning and the price includes an amazing breakfast. The beach is mainly pebbles, but one can walk up into the hills or kayak out in the bay or just relax at the lovely lodge. Bill and Claire Hurst are the ultimate hosts, making...

Unique location, directly on the waterfront. Superb large rooms and very clean. Because the lodge is so small (8 rooms I think) and the owners are present at all time, you really feel like visiting friends rather than staying in a hotel. If you are looking after a remote place (it is nearly at the end of the road) to...

This outstanding B&B will redefine your expectations of what an upmarket B&B should provide. Located right on the water, this purpose built lodge has expansive lounge and living rooms that provide a luxurious ambience that is perfect for reading or relaxing in front of the giant open fireplace built of locally quarried stone. The bedrooms are well appointed and our...

Set in the most tranquil bay, Pawhaoa Lodge is a joy to visit. The scenery all around it is beautiful and there are many excellent hikes to take. Bill and Claire are excellent hosts and good cooks. Their rooms and cottages are spacious and very well equipped.

Claire and Bill are amazing hosts and Pawhaoa Bay Lodge is a Jewel in New Zealand crown. From beautifully catered meals in the Lodge if you don't wish to cook to collecting clams on the beech and catching snapper in the bay for the BBQ at your Villa, Claire and Bill ensure your stay is perfect for you. On arrival...
