The Historic Lodge, Boatshed , Cottage & unique “Glamping” units - Gypsy Caravans, Safari tents, Treehouse & Boatcabin are set in 2 acres of creative, tropical, water-front gardens, rich in bird life - Enjoy nature on the river, in stylish comfort!
P(website hidden) Lodge is a 1930's hardwood building with heaps of character.
The sweeping, golden P(website hidden) Roof and the history of Imperial Chinese treasures inspired us to decorate the Lodge with a touch of Asia-Pacific and an historical "expatriate" flavour. Imagine being an expatriate China hand in the 30's!
There are distinctive baskets, weavings, paintings, textiles and wall hangings. The often antique furniture and old travel trunks tell their own story and have been blended with interesting Pacific and Maori decor.
The beds, however, are modern and comfortable and there is satellite TV in most units.

Interaction with Guests

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.
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.

The P(website hidden) is a very charming place, many places to sit down and relax, views over the little river and friendly and considerate hosts! The place is located very well - there are several nice walks that y can take straight from the grounds. We especially enjoyed having two top restaurants so close by at Kerikeri Inlet.
It was a great stay in P(website hidden) Lodge, I loved the surrounding and the great help from Stephen.
Staying with Stephen at P(website hidden) Lodge was a fabulous experience and we would return in a moment.
Prachtige locatie in een leuke stad in het noorden van New Zeeland. De gastheer geeft je echt een welkom gevoel en de locatie is prachtig en zeer zeker het aanraden. Wij hebben het zeer prettig gehad.
We had a great one night stop in KeriKeri in one of Stephens Gypsy Caravans after a booking clash with the P(website hidden) room we had originally booked. Stephen was very helpful in trying to make us comfortable with the last minute change.
The caravan was clean and deceptively comfortable and we had a good nights sleep. The site was very busy with all rooms, tents and caravans seemingly full so there was a fight for hot water in the facilities. On check out Stephen suggested a quick detour North to a local bay which we did and on route also visited the local farmers market which was great local knowledge shared, something I love about AirBnB.
Our studio was clean, comfortable and quaintly furnished. It was one of several and there is 'glamping' accommodation as well. It is all set in a beautiful, peaceful park-like setting. The Stone Store and restaurant and bar are just 5 minutes walk. Breakfast is not part of the package. We loved our stay at P(website hidden) Lodge and thoroughly recommend it.
We love the bed! A four-postered bed. A nice view and a comftable room. We can recommend this place.

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 p(website hidden) 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.
