I have just realised that my past review had not been added so will re-try. Anyone looking at this place if you have any doubts, forget them, just go. Everything you need is there, much thought and expense has been put into this comfortable holiday house and would gladly live there all-year round. Paul & Katalina are very nice friendly & helpful hosts. Lovely beaches all around. Recommend picking up a good supply of groceries at supermarket at Coopers beach as there is only a Dairy and bottle shop in Whatuwhiwhi. We had a great 2 week holiday, couldn't have hoped for a better place to stay.
Highly Recommended Stay here @ Karikari Lodge. Hosts Paul & Katalina are amazing. Thank you Paul for taking the kayaks to Tokerau Beach for the boys to use & your Tuatua fritters were absolutely gorgeous for the last meal of our stay. Your holiday house is a home away from home feel, with the comforts & conveniences of a quality hotel only better ! Its great to know we could park the Harley in a safe & secure place and the convenience of having access to the gorgeous beaches practically at the door step. We would love to return for another stay in the near future again. **********
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Will be back in Christmas. They provided everything. All we had to do was take our clothes and food supplies. So we travelled light. Best of all our children were relaxed and were safe there. Can't say enough about our host Paul and Katalina. Big hearts and they look after you well. Actually they were better than most hotels we have stayed in. Thankyou to you both
