Happy hosts and a peaceful restful stay in a luxurious lodge”

Our stay felt personal as we were treated like family. We were greeted at the car park and welcomed then led through a beautiful garden to the house entrance where we shown the facilities and our room. We were left to our own requirements, quiet reading time, trips to sights, great Thai restaurant meal then back to the lodge. It was like coming back to a top class hotel. We opened a bottle of wine and asked the hosts to join us and great conversation was had. A perfect and restful stay.
Nothing . It was great.

We highly recommend Omaka Lodge as a place to relax and unwind.”

We went for a 60th birthday celebration and Chris and Scott were amazing in making us feel welcome and helping us to celebrate. The grounds are beautiful and we especially enjoyed the outside courtyard and the swimming pool. In the evening we could relax in the lounge. The bedrooms were perfectly air conditioned for a good sleep.
That we only stayed 2 days!

Tastefully decorated house with a fabulous garden. The room was private and spotlessly clean. The hosts (Chris & Scott) were friendly, informative and made our stay so comfortable. The breakfast is amazing! Would definitely recommended it.

It was the best bnb ever. Wonderful natural setting. Really comfortable and decorated with flair. Chris and Scott made us so welcome and provided delicious food while also reviving an orphaned lamb and baking up a storm for the local Hope Charity. Wow!

The Taumarunui views the conversations and the walks around the garden's is out of this world.”

I have never been so well looked after before and the property is worth the walk and visit on its own. The breakfast and home made effort was out standing and worth a return trip. The true English tea and severing, I would also return for after being looked after so well, and that lemon cake was to die for, Yes I didn't need the cream!
I couldn't tell them to improve in any way at all

We will be back to visit this gem again.”

From the moment we arrived we knew we’d found a hidden gem. From shared interests with the amazing hosts to all of the personalised and thoughtful touches throughout the property we can honestly say we’ve not experienced anything like it before. The rooms are beautifully presented with gorgeous furniture pieces throughout and the ensuite was amazing! (Heated floors and a rainfall shower that my 6’4 partner got under easily! Not to mentioned to lovely toiletries that are available to use) The included breakfast was lovely and everything about our stay was fantastic. We will be back again many times, we’ve found a place we can go when we visit that part of the country again.
I can’t fault the Omaka Lodge at all.
