Beautiful tourist lodge nestled in the Kaimai ranges just 20 mins from Tauranga. We have two comfortable double guest rooms plus dorm accommodation for up to 38 people. Price is $24 pp/pn for dorm, and $48 for guest room. Set in the cloud forest there are stunning bush walks, our tranquil waterfalls, or an amazing glow worm experience. You might prefer to cook a fabulous meal in our large kitchen and warm up by our huge open fire. A perfect stopover for weary travellers to Hobbiton.
We have two guest rooms as mentioned, one with a double bed and one with a queen bed. Both are private rooms with their own separate heating. We also have 23 bunks available that are in a shared space in groups of 4 bunks to a section.
Acesso dos hóspedes
Guests have access to the lounge, industrial kitchen, space for games and table tennis, bathrooms, and your living space. There are lots of trails to explore, and beautiful areas to walk as well. In the summer we have a water slide, which is a lot of fun especially for kids! The glow worm trail is always a big hit as well.
Interação com os hóspedes
We live next door to the lodge in the manager's house, so if you have any questions, please feel free to ask! We are not normally involved with the guests, but definitely available if the need arises.
We do provide wifi, however, being a rural location, the signal isn't the best and can be spotty. It is not ideal for streaming but works well for emails, etc.
We have a washing machine and large clothes drying rack which are free to use. There is a minimal charge of $4 per load for the gas dryer if you choose to use that.
It is generally on the cool side here even in the summer, so it is recommend to come prepared.
Smoking only permitted outside away from buildings.
