This accommodation was prearranged as part of an upgraded lodging package for hiking the Queen Charlotte Track. My wife and I arrived at Mahana Lodge tired and wet from hiking in an all-day steady rain. John and Ann greeted us right away and showed us to our building where John had started a fire in the wood stove so we...

We had an excellent stay at Mahana Lodge and would highly recommend it to other travelers. John and Ann were very friendly and welcoming hosts and the lodge itself is very comfortable, situated in a beautiful garden (with a private beach) overlooking a quiet and picturesque bay. We had a refreshing swim in the bay which adjoined the garden. Dinner...

John & Ann are friendly and welcoming hosts and are obviously very house proud. The lodge and surrounding gardens are immaculate. It is a very pretty setting with a private beach. The views from the lounge and kitchen area are breathtaking. My husband had a terrible blister on his right heel so with the wet weather forecast we decided not...

We really appreciated the exceptional hospitality of Ann and John - they were so welcoming after a wet morning of walking (Ann even washed and dried our gear for us overnight). Dinner was superb with salad ingredients fresh from their garden. The warm and friendly accommodation was just what we needed to recharge the batteries.

While walking the queen Charlotte track we were upgraded to here, and were certainly pleased at this. Wonderful rooms for the 8 of us, fantastic welcome and friendliness. We had the dinner there, which was really great and delicious. Local and home grown ingredients. Fantastic. Fantastic John and Ann. Great on the queen Charlotte walk, or maybe water taxi from...

Mahana Lodge is standout. It is one of the best places I've stayed in NZ in the last 11 years, and I've traveled around a lot. Beautiful surroundings, well kept property, great hosts, and comfy well laid out rooms. It is obvious the care that the owners have taken over renovating this property. The food is as good as everything...

John and Ann are very welcoming and extremely helpful. This was our second day on the track and it had been raining and very wet underfoot. The setting is beautiful. We enjoyed excellent accommodation and a fantastic meal that night in the conservatory. The smell of the grapes that are growing above the table is incredible and make a great...

Was incredibly impressed and had a very memorable one night stay here while mountain biking the QC track with my partner. Was warmly greeted by John who showed us where we could hose down our very muddy bikes and store them overnight. Our room (number 4) was just lovely, with a private balcony and a gorgeous view of the inlet....

We stayed here for three nights, arriving by water taxi. We were met on the quay and our suitcases were taken up to our room in the main lodge behind the house. The accommodation consists of four en suite rooms plus a well equipped lounge where you can socialise with other guests. Our room, room 4 had a private balcony...
