We stayed with Geoff and Chris over Anzac weekend and had a fabulous time. The lodge is stunning and has everything you could need. The breakfasts were beautifully prepared (and we learned how you're actually supposed to eat a croissant!). Geoff and Chris were delightful hosts, giving us great tips for places to eat out in Kerikeri. The only negative...

Your recommendation to stay at 88 Lodge when in Northland is so appropriate for those looking for somewhere well located for both the Bay of Islands plus all of the things to enjoy throughout Northland. Thank you so much for pointing this out. It was a pleasure having you stay with us and we shall be very much looking forward...

If you want luxurious accommodations in a peaceful and serene setting, then 88 Lodge is the place to be. The rooms are extremely clean, comfortable, and welcoming after an activity filled day. Geoff and Chris are the perfect hosts. Both are charming, entertaining, and knowledgeable about New Zealand. They have excellent information about things to do in Kerikeri and will...

It was a delight to have you and your family here at 88 Lodge. We particularly enjoyed chatting with you about Vancouver and what we might enjoy when we visit your part of this wonderful world. As for your kind words the response 'thank you' seems pitiful but we do say that with all our heart.

We stayed at Geoff and Chris's beautiful B&B for three nights. We were travelling with another couple. One of our party had a disability and they were very attentive to his special needs. Our hosts went out of their way to ensure we got the most out of our stay in the area. They went so far as to intervene...

“The total experience was the best we have had at a B&B anywhere.” How can we possibly reply to such praise? “Thank you” just does not do justice. From our chats with you when you were here we know that you have travelled extensively and always stay in B&B accommodation wherever possible. So to say ‘the best B&B anywhere’ is...

Just by chance we chose the 88 lodge for our first nights on a three week NZ trip. It became indeed a great start of our journey. With care and perfect guiding Chris and Geoff helped us to excellent visits, tours and food before heading south. Lodging and food, perfect. Thanks again guys! Ule & Sara

Because of our geographical position we find that 88 Lodge is usually chosen for the start or end of guests trip to New Zealand. Either way is so nice to hear we either set the standard or saved the best to last. In your case it was lovely to have you with us and the word ‘perfect’ appears twice in...

We stayed with Geoff & Chris for 10 days, and thoroughly enjoyed our time with them.

It is not often we have guests stay for 10 days but as you found there is sufficient in this wonderful area of New Zealand to justify such a chunk of your time on these islands. Your comment “more than equal to any of the other 5* accommodation on the rest of our trip” really does give us a boost...

This is a beautifully appointed property in a quiet garden setting. The accommodation is spotlessly clean and comfortable. The attention to the detailed requirements of guests is exceptional from breakfast to ensuring that guests have information needed to enjoy all surrounding facilities and trips. A delightful stay with welcoming hosts.

Geoff and Chris were amazing hosts! Each morning we were greeted with a beautiful made-to-order breakfast from Chris with fresh croissants, wonderful yogurt parfaits and beautiful fruit.

You were most definitely in adventure junkie mode whilst you were with us. St. Paul’s rock is scaled by few and to get around behind Rainbow Falls takes nerve and determination. But at the same time you enjoyed the wonderful Wainui Bay (Wedding Beach) which is peaceful, beautiful and relaxing. The two sides of the Northland coin. And then off...

Hospitality and facilities were so good I stayed an extra few days. The bedroom was easily comparable to a luxury hotel but the grounds were off the scale. You started the day with a delicious breakfast of your choice with many home made products grown in the garden or locally sourced.

Our breakfasts and gardens are just two of our points of difference and we are so pleased you so enjoyed them both.
