Riverside Lodge 1

11 guests · 4 bedrooms · 4.5 baths
Perched directly above the calm waterway, this lavish lodge features seemingly endless views of the glistening Tuki Tuki River. Vaulted ceilings create a lofty ambiance while sky-high windows allow natural light to stream in from all angles. Hop on a bike and cycle through a sprawling local vineyard—of course, bringing a bottle home to sip in front of the abode’s roaring fireplace in the evening.
An open-concept plan between the living and dining areas creates a seamless flow. Perfect for family vacations, two wings of bedrooms (including bunk beds) allow space for everyone to spread out. Fully retractable glass doors open onto the terrace, where you’ll find the refreshing swimming pool. Pop a fizzing bottle of bubbly on the verandah as you watch the sun setting behind the sloping Te Mata Peak.
Though this property feels perfectly secluded and far removed from the bustling city, you’re situated just 10 minutes from the prosperous Havelock North village. Not far in any given direction you’ll encounter pristine beaches, homey restaurants, and world-class golf courses—namely, the famous Cape Kidnappers. Adventure awaits at your doorstep with plentiful trout fishing, extensive hiking trails, and kayaking mere minutes away. Spend an afternoon frolicking on the golden seashores of Waimarama, one of the most sought-after coasts in Hawke’s Bay.
