"Others have said it, but it's true: you feel like you've walked onto the set of a Architecture Digest shoot. The property is exquisite. Leigh is a pro, and a perfect host with exceptional tastes. She has a wonderful sense of humor and fun to be around. She's also full of wonderful local information and ready to share her contacts and connections to enliven your trip. And bring your appetite for breakfast -- she doesn't hold back.

"The first thing you will notice aside from the 'straight out of a magazine' interior design is Leigh's welcoming and warm demeanour. Nothing was too much trouble and she made us feel very welcome. We stayed two nights which were certainly the most relaxing of our trip - the only sounds you will hear from the bedroom are the native birds that sing happily in the surrounds. If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind within a remarkably beautiful piece of NZ - look no further!"

"Luxurious and peaceful. What a great BnB and what a great location. In my opinion, Ngamihi Lodge is every bit as wonderful as New Zealand's best, and at a price you can happily think about extending your stay! I Loved every minute of my stay :- it was very hard to leave".

"We recently had an awesome few days at Ngamihi Lodge The beauty of the lake is just incredible and the lodge occupies a position that allows you to enjoy the view and the sun throughout the day. Ngamihi Lodge has a luxurious feel with a very tasteful decor which instantly made us feel we had arrived somewhere very special. The host Leigh Caughey is very warm and friendly so we quickly felt at home. We enjoyed riding the classic bikes, cycling around the village and country lanes.The board walk just along the road was very special and took only about 45 mins.

We also had pleasant day taking the Lodge's VW Beetle convertible out for a superb picnic which was supplied by Leigh.

I highly recommend this amazingly special destination"
