    A real gem

    This is a real gem and at a very reasonable price too. The lodges are comfortable and private with a view over the pond full of bird life. The owners are charming and offer a range of extras such as bicycles and infrared torches to see kiwis on a night tour of the forest. We suggest 2 or 3 nights to enjoy all that is available
