Our week at Sunset Waterfront Lodge was spectacular. We were met at the ferry and shown to our gorgeous villa -- everything laid on, fully equipped, beautifully maintained. The perfect swimming beach is just across the road, with boards and snorkels to borrow. A communal games area with table tennis and numerous games and sports equipment is on site. The Mulberry Grove shop has an excellent selection and makes great burgers. Just perfect. If you are a nature lover -- the banded rails run wild, there are kingfishers and seabirds everywhere -- and eels in the stream. Really paraduse.
If you want to get away from it all, this is the place for you. Sunset Waterfront Lodge was the perfect place to stay. Friendly and hospitable hosts, exceptionally clean and brand new beds and have lots of extras to offer you. Paddle boards, kayaks, etc. If you want to do nothing, if you want to explore, walks, beaches, hot pools, if you want to fish, dive or surf, it has it all. Highly recommend.
What a lovely place to stay! We stayed here for 3 nights during Christmas! The Villa was so cosy , tidy and equipped with things that we need. The lodge is located not far from the ferry wharf. There is a store and cafe next by. Just takes a minute to walk to playground &beach and enjoy magnificent view. Board games ,some sport equipments and TV are available for guests to use in the function room. The highlight of this lodge is the hosts are so kind , friendly and helpful. Thank you Lynley and Leigh. We are so appreciated your help, helped us get a rental car during this busy season, and informed us a beautiful beach for snorkeling, we had a wonderful time in Great Barrier Island. We hope we could come back to stay soon. Thank you so much!
This is a brilliant wee place to stay - it's an older style lodge/motel however the owners have spruced it up a lot. The kitchen/bathroom facilities are reasonably basic but the beds are really comfy as are the lounge seats and the chairs/table outside. The biggest selling point however are the awesome hosts and the brilliant location. Leigh and Lynley are super accommodating and really go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The bay is immediately over the road and kayaks are available for use ( we had an amazing experience of kayaking with a school of bay hammerhead sharks!) Totally recommend you stay :)
Came here to hire a kayak, 2 paddle boards and a snorkel set between 4 of us. The service was fantastic and super chilled. Prices are really good by the hour. The owner Leigh was friendly and welcoming and even helped cart the gear down to the water. The equipment was pretty new so great condition. We had a fantastic day for it with beautiful conditions and clear water, the bay is stunning so incredible value for money. If I ever come back to great barrier island will definitely be booking in at sunset for our stay too.
