"Our booking was just perfect for our 3 night stay as a base to explore the beautiful area. My granddaughter described the setting as "this is heaven" as she interacted with the local wildlife and explored around the camp. Facilities also included a great playground for children along with an excellent swimming pool. Our hosts were most accommodating and helpful in every way. Our stay was in the lodge with shared facilities but we were pleasantly surprised to discover our unit included its own kitchen which was not advised on the Agoda website. We found the facilities very clean and attended to . A trek through the adjoining bush at night looking for kiwis was also a highlight. This camp is a perfect location for those wanting a spot away from the maddening crowds and tourist areas, yet only a 5 min drive to the heart of historic Russell. This camp is a credit to its owners who aim to provide a tradition kiwi camping experience set within a natural and sustainable environment."

"This was the second haka lodge I have been to during my travels around New Zealand and it whole heartedly lived up to the high standards the first lodge instilled. You would be hard pressed to find facilities on par with this haka lodge. You feel at home which is an immensely difficult thing to achieve for a hostel. It offers privacy for those that want it and plenty of social opportunities for those that seek it too. The view is absolutely incredible and you will find yourself waking up early to catch a glimpse of the sun rising. You couldn’t ask for a better location in paihia! You are within close proximity to everything you could possibly need. By far the best part of Haka lodge is it’s staff. They are helpful, friendly, attentive and most importantly “real”. I would strongly recommend this haka lodge to any one! "

"It was a lovely stay with a lovely view. The owner was very helpful and took time to share about the attractions, amenities in the vicinity. Seeing that we have young kids and huge luggage, he kindly offered us a ground floor unit and WIFI vouchers for our first world connectivity needs. From our room (#1), we were greeted with a pool view and a view of the bay of islands. Lovely sunset and sunrise greeted us during our stay and it was really enchanting, especially during the sunset when sky turned pink and blue. The estate was well kept and the room was clean and tidy. We wanted to cook and had issues with the stove. The owner was prompt to fix this this (just a loose connection) and he readily exchange the frying pan when asked. This estate also has a small play area and offer nice views of the bay of islands from different points. The location is barely 5 minutes drive to the Paihia town centre where we ate, bought groceries, took the cruises. Highly recommended!"

"We initially booked for only one night, but decided to stay for 4 and make this our base for exploring the Bay of Islands to the north and east. The room was not big but quite comfortable, with a small balcony that overlooked the garden. Being a standard room, it had no aircon. Instead it had a ceiling fan which was so high up that it was useless. The pedestal fan kept us cool but was a little noisy. Good modern bathroom also with a very nice range of organic toiletries. The hotel had good facilities for the price (restaurant, internet and pool) although of these, we only used the internet. We liked that the hotel was at the southern end, just out of the centre, but still an easy walk to the cafes, activities and shops. The staff were pleasant and attentive. "
