Description

The space

The gypsy caravans appeal to those looking for an affordable romantic weekend.

They have special interiors with coloured glass windows, plush textiles, lace and unexpected romantic touches. All the caravans have breathtaking water views, courtyards and screened planting that offers privacy.

Two of the Gypsy Caravans have outdoor cast iron baths, under the stars with great water views, privacy screens and herbal/ lavender bath salts. These Caravans with outdoor baths cost an extra $15 per night.

The gypsy caravan down by the river bank not only has an outside bath but also has its own, very private deck that sits out over a “playful” section of the river.

As the gypsy caravans are lined and come with small oil heaters, they are ideal for an autumn or winter getaway.

There are basic utilities - kettle, tea & coffee, fridge & outside wash stand with basin. All other ammenities are nearby.

Guest access

Large, central water view deck complete with marquee and with café style seating for large groups, BBQ and Gazebo. We have our own Jetty and pontoon, ideal for swimming and Kayaks for hire.
Only the lower Boat shed is off-limits to children.

Interaction with guests

Some guests like privacy, while others like interaction and guidance on local attractions and events. We are happy to help when asked.

The neighborhood

The creative tropical gardens and park like grounds go down to the edge of the river. We are surrounded by horses and luxury properties on one side and a river and famous, historic reserve and on the other side. The river flows down the entire length of our property and meets the KeriKeri Sea Inlet . A walking track leads to two waterfalls (considered the best walk in the area) & starts at our Lodge.
Great kayaking on the river and we have a private jetty.

Getting around

It only takes 20 minutes to walk to town through the woods, and there are good local taxis and inter-city or major town bus services.

Other things to note

The Pagoda Lodge Estate comprises 2 acres of gardens and mature trees. There are creative, multi-tiered grounds offering many private and tranquil spaces. There is a gentle flowing river and wide views to the Inlet and adjacent, large Historic Pa Site. As such, we have plentiful and varied bird-life. Please respect our wildlife and do not feed the ducks.
The river is a fish reserve, so no fishing allowed. No children in the old boat shed (lower level) and no swimming without supervision of parents.
Many thanks

The owners, Kathy and Stephen Frewen, spent more than 20 years in Asia and were immediately drawn to the harmonious balance of “earth, wind and water”. The pagoda roofs, the variety of rare and mature trees, the tranquil river and the abundant bird life all create a certain magic, now enhanced by the serene Buddhas from Borobudur.
