Welcome to our home set in 4acres of native bush and gardens on the Waitangi River - home to many NZ birds including Moreporks. Feed our friendly farm animals and meet our cat, Panpoot.
All our rooms have an ensuite (one with a corner bath), TV/DVDs, Teas, Coffee & Refrigerator. Our two river side rooms have a sofa and their own deck with river/rural views. Puketona guests have their own table & chairs on the BBQ deck, also with river and rural views.
We’ll happily advise you on local attractions. Perhaps you’d like a pre-breakfast walk with Paul while Barbara prepares your full breakfast? We offer light or gourmet meals. We’re both 'Kiwis' and have travelled extensively throughout NZ.

We had a wonderful stay. Location was perfect. Views were stunning. We were really made to feel very welcome by our hosts Paul and Barbara and we had a couple of very relaxed days. Thoroughly enjoyed our breakfasts and round the table chats with fellow guests. A must place to stay when in Paihia!!

What a great place. The welcome, attention to detail and location were brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble for Paul and Barbara. Breakfasts were good and we thoroughly enjoyed the night that we ate in at Morepork. The conversation was interesting and we learned a lot about the history and the culture of the place. The grounds and views are enchanting. If it was on our doorstep, rather than 12,000 miles away, it would be a regular go-to place for us.

Management response:

Hi T&M Thank you for your kind words - we're so glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes, we are a long way from Wales, but if you ever get back this way we'd love to catch up. If you want, you can keep an eye on what's happening at Morepork Lodge on Facebook. Cheers, Barb & Paul
