Interaction with Guests
As required, some like privacy while others like interaction and guidance
The creative tropical gardens and park like grounds go down to the edge of the river. We are surrounded by horses and top end properties on one side and a famous, historic reserve and river on the other sides. The river flows down the length of our property and meets the KeriKeri Inlet . A walking track leads to two waterfalls (the best walk in the neighbourhood) & starts at our Lodge.
Great kayaking on the river and we have a private jetty.
Only 20 minutes walk to town through the woods, with good local taxis and inter-city or major town bus services.
Other Things to Note
The P(website hidden) 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.
Please clean up well after your visit by washing, drying up and putting away all crockery, cutlery, dishes & pans. As we are subtropical, we would ask guests to kindly dispose each day of rubbish in our recycling area to avoid unwanted ants and insects. Please leave wet towels in the bathroom and close doors of units when leaving. Many thanks.
Drinking water available from filter tap only.
Our stay in a family deck-mounted safari tent was a nice experience even though we initially wanted to stay in the pagoda house.
We actually slept very very well in the comfortable beds inside the tent.
Thank you for your efforts to maintain the site clean and pleasant.
We had a lovely time at the place. The tent was different from the one shown in the picture, but still was nice and comfortable. Stephen was an excellent host and very helpful. The site and the location is really beautiful. Lots to see and do. Wish we had stayed longer. I have already recommended some friends over.

About the Host, Stephen
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.
