The Greenmantle Estate

As the only true luxury lodge on the west coast of the lower North Island, Greenmantle Estate Lodge offers sophistication and convenience to the Kapiti Coast and Paraparaumu Beach.

Located a quick ten minute drive from Paraparaumu Beach Golf Club and the stunning Kapiti Coast is the Greenmantle Estate, the only luxury lodge on the west coast of the lower North Island. In addition to its beautiful and large stately main house, the estate also features six additional suites which offer exceptional comfort and relaxation for guests.

Greenmantle was renovated in 2000 by architectural firm Don Nelson & Associates. As a result of their work they won the prestigious ADNZ Design Award (2003) for Residential Alterations and Additions. Guests will enjoy a more modern and clean layout, with increased open transparency and sweeping views to the outside.

Landscape architecture within New Zealand has recently experienced a renaissance of sorts. The drive to recognize the beauty of Pre-European plantings and the importance of native species has taken ahold throughout the country. Greenmantle is perhaps unique in that its grounds, at almost 5 acres of land, include not only native ferns and other New Zealand flora, but a forest of the extremely slow-growing Nikau palm. The Nikau is a rarity and the only endemic palm to mainland New Zealand.

In 2002 Tiger Woods played in the New Zealand Open and stayed at Greenmantle Estate Lodge.

The Henley was incredible. What a find. Incredible grounds, the staff was waiting for us when we pulled up, great rooms, lovely breakfast. We could have stayed another day or two. Definitely the perfect place for us to recharge after the flight and a busy day... Everyone has been enjoying the trip.

My wife and I, along with Sandy and George, arrived home about two weeks ago from a trip to New Zealand that you facilitated. The four of us have been traveling together for 47 years after meeting in a small Bed & Breakfast in London in 1971.  We have traveled extensively in Europe, Canada, United States, and South America.

New Zealand was a distant stretch for us, and then we asked Julie for help on the recommendation of friends and she took us to you.  And that was our lucky day!

The five weeks we spent in New Zealand were possibly the most seamless, best organized trip we have ever experienced.  The accommodations were outstanding, everyone of them. The accommodations fit very well with the itinerary that we gave to you. Each and everyone exceeded our expectations from Auckland to Invercargill.  The people we met in the B&Bs were very accommodating and attentive to all of our needs. We did not consider them as hosts but rather New Zealand friends.  The food was excellent.  Tour suggested excursions were always right on target.

I believe the only thing that would have made the trip better was to stay longer.  This was meant to be a onetime experience, but already there has been suggestions of a return.

Thank you for your part of this fantastic adventure!
