The space

Pagoda Lodge is a 1930's hardwood building with heaps of character.

The sweeping, golden Pagoda 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.

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

This place really is as pretty as it looks in the pictures. It is truly a wonderful part of earth. We're lucky to have spent an entire week there and are glad we did. The Pagoda Lodge couldn't be more nicely located, right at a river, with hikes right at your doorsteps. It was incredibly quiet during our stay—perfect for curing twelve hours of jetlag. Stephen was very helpful and gave us lots of suggestions to fill our itinerary. We were also regularly asked if we needed something. We felt very welcome and can warmly recommend the Pagoda Lodge.

We absolutely loved our 4 night stay at Pagoda Lodge. Stephen greeted us on arrival and helped plan out our stay. The pagoda, gardens, walks and geese all made a fantastic, tranquil family experience. Lodge was very comfortable and clean.

Pagoda is a wonderful place to stay and the meadow was great for the kids. Stephen saved our holidays, since he immediately found and couriered the cuddly animals we left behind.

The Lodge's property is beautiful--meticulously manicured and well taken care of. There are over 20 cabin/glamping options, although you wouldn't know it because they are nicely spread out on the spacious property so that it never seems crowded, even on busy holiday weekends. Glampers have a community kitchen and showering facilities that are tucked away from the lodge apartments, and are quiet. The wifi is shared among all guests, and although it usually plugs along, I did not find it strong enough to make a phone call. Thankfully, the internet reaches the front dining/living room of this 2 bedroom apartment (not the bedrooms)--which was the furthermost of four subdivided apartments that compose the lodge. It is an old 1930s build--dated in construction, but nice enough and met our basic needs. Mid-sized fridge, microwave, mini oven and 2 burner stovetop were provided (as well as access to additional cooking space and equipment if needed). Filtered water on tap is provided for drinking, and general kitchen and bathroom washing is done with river water (on tap, of course). The living room and bedrooms are cosy, the bathroom is nice, and it comfortably fits a group of 4. There's an outdoor table and chairs with a semi private deck that is great! Stephan and his wife are gracious hosts, and were extremely hospitable to us, as our family was under the weather during our visit. Stephan was a treasure trove of information on the area, and made some great recommendations for activities during our stay. We only wish we had felt well enough to do more! Thanks again!

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.
