Situated in the picturesque countryside near Hawkes Bay, this luxury, boutique lodge offers a perfect location for those wishing explore wineries, untouched nature, pristine beaches and quaint little towns.
Nestled in the quite confines of a large, private country garden surrounded by vineyards and orchids, the lodge offers sweeping views of the distant mountain ranges and Te Mata Peak.
