Lodges, Stations and Cottages

New Zealand as a country has so much to offer outside of great golf. Many visitors choose to explore off of the beaten path during their trip. Farm stays, lodges and small cottages dot the country and provide a nice way to both unwind and get a closer look to authentic New Zealand life.

Wilderness Lodging

Quickly remove yourself from the bustle of daily life and explore New Zealand from outside the window of a moving vehicle. Select lodges throughout the country provide not only refuge but opportunities to actively learn more about this wonderful land and its fragile ecosystem.

Working Farms & Stations

Ranging from modest and comfortable to upscale luxury, sheep stations and working farms throughout New Zealand provide an alternative to a branded hotel. Found close to top golf course areas and throughout the countryside these accommodations provide comfort, adventure and an insight into the daily life of your Kiwi hosts. Expect the eggs in the morning to be as fresh as possible.

Cottages

Comfortable and quiet self-serviced lodgings located in both areas with top courses and more rural locations. Cottages are perfect for couples, families and small groups who require perhaps a break from larger fully-serviced hotel accommodations yet still wish a higher level of appointments.

Customer reviews

Frank. Debi and I thank you for our wonderful trip to NZ. You and Bill are special people, and we look forward to keeping you as extended family! You are certainly welcome back anytime, and we will look forward to seeing your wonderful family if/when we get out to LA-- maybe Clippers in the playoffs? Blessings to your family.

I will get with Debi, and see which pictures make us look the youngest! If you need any "references or testimonials" that I could share, just let me know how I can help.

I can’t thank you enough for your help planning a truly memorable vacation. Yuliya and I had an amazing time. Two definite highlights were the sailboat charter and the Marlborough Lodge. Nik and his girlfriend Natalie were such a pleasure to meet and spend a perfect day with. The Marlborough Lodge is one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. From the room, to the staff and the exquisite food it was top notch. I have referred you to a couple of my friends who are planning trips next year and when We make it back, you will be our first call. Thank you again for everything.
