Trevor & Carol were awesome hosts providing the ideal amount of information and guidance then leaving us to it. The room was luxury and dinner was out of this world, easily the best we have ever had, made all the more special by the remoteness and beauty of the location.

Earthsong Lodge is a quality experience. The bush setting is magnificent, the rooms have character and hosts Trevor and Carol go out of their way to ensure their guests are pampered in every way. The food is top class. And Great Barrier Island is a treasure.

This Lodge offers one of the best places to take a break. Trevor and Carol are wonderful hosts; the meals are to die for (well, not literally!); the accommodation is excellent; and the island itself offers tranquility, beauty and friendliness. This was our second visit and it won't be our last.

A review of a guests first stay tends to focus on the novelty of discovering a great experience...and wishing to share that with others. The decision to return is loaded with expectations, and that is the challenge for us as hosts.
