Please note: We only take one guest party at a time so you will be the only paying guests.

VIEWS | GOLF | KAYAKINGWe are located between the Bay of Islands and Cape Reinga, in a very special spot (just below St Pauls Rock Scenic Reserve) high above the Whangaroa Harbour, a magnificent picturesque inland harbour with a relaxed fishing village atmosphere. Protected by dramatic rock formations, the harbour offers all weather boating, kayaking, and fishing. Dolphin sightings from Waimanu Lodge are not infrequent. We have even seen a pod of Orca (killer whales) on one occasion.
