Our boutique villas are located opposite the beautiful Kai Iwi Lakes, approximately 25 minutes north of Dargaville, a 3-hour drive from Auckland, passing Matakohe Museum, en route to Trounson Kauri Park and Waipoua Forest on the Twin Coast Discovery Highway.
With four boutique lodges to choose from, we have something to cater to everyone's needs - ranging from our lakeside studio lodge through to our 2 bedroom family garden lodge. We have a 4 star Qualmark rating with a Silver Environmental & Sustainability Award. Come and experience our friendly New Zealand hospitality and enjoy our movie theatre to unwind after a busy day, well equipped personal gym & spa pool or just relax lakeside either here at the lodge or across the road at the beautiful Kai Iwi Lakes Domain.
Kai Iwi Lakes is a 538 Hectare reserve, comprising three clear fresh water lakes and white silica sand beaches. A perfect location for swimming and all water sports, or just relaxing. A truly untouched paradise. A quick drive down to Omamari settlement takes you to Ripiro Beach, the longest in New Zealand.
Come and see the splendour that this beautiful area has to offer from the magnificent Kauri trees of the Waipoua Forest to the sensational beaches along the coastline.
