Set in lush subtropical gardens, Paradise View Lodge is your tranquil space to truly escape the pace of everyday life, and get the headspace back to relax and rejuvenate with your group, family, or corporate team of up to 13.
Exuding charm, tranquility and luxury, the whole 7 bedroom, 5 bathroom setup really comes into its own with the accompanying swimming pool and spa - you can really feel the calm as you leave all your stresses from the outside world behind and settle into this true destination home.
With linen and Wifi included for your stay, it sits nestled high up in the rolling countryside overlooking Waipu Cove, an easy 2 hour drive from Auckland. And you probably won’t want to leave, but if you do feel the need to venture out from this delightful escape, Waipu is just a 7km drive through the stunning countryside.
The downstairs space itself is incredibly versatile, with ample space for meetings, planning, entertaining, as well as a media room stacked full of DVDs and CDs.
The feature fireplace will be a real hit, providing warmth during your winter escapes and the perfect ambience for those evening catchups with your friends or colleagues over a glass of wine. Imagine taking in those evening views on the ample decking while the BBQ gets fired up for the evening meals. And with two additional heatpumps, you can while away the final hours of the day, being as toasty or cool as you like.
The whole experience of this home is what sets it apart and rejuvenates your soul, with more than 10 acres of secluded gardens, fragrant fruit trees and native plant life to wander through and appreciate. The attention to detail in each spacious boutique room features handcrafted bedroom furniture, including unique designer beds and luxury linen. The many thoughtful touches throughout the home make it an obvious choice as your business-ready retreat, but equally make it completely geared toward the perfect base for your group or family reunion!

ArunaStayed September 2020
We requested some changes to the bedding configurations initially as we were all couples travelling for a holiday but the owners were quite adamant about not being able to change it for us. That was a bit disappointing but other than that our stay was fantastic. The place delivered everything and more than we expected. Views around the Waipu Bay areas and beyond are simply superb and on a clear weather day it can be marvellous. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly, the pool was a bit cool for us to dip in but the spa pool more than made up for it. For the size of our group, this accommodation was truly amazing. Would highly recommend it any time!

We came here for a business retreat. It was the perfect venue for us. We could all sit around the dining room table during the day and conduct our meeting and had that wonderful view to gaze at when we needed a break. The house is very well appointed and had everything we needed. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the pool and spa pool are a bonus. On the Friday night we had a BBQ dinner and on the Saturday we had a meal catered for by Pit's Kitchen which we can thoroughly recommend. Whatever the occasion you won't be disappointed if you choose to stay here.

This is a excellent property for a large family or friend getaway! Each room is amazing and the pool, spa and grounds are well cared for. The bachcare team are friendly and really easy to deal with, I appreciated that! The caretaker on site is very friendly but did pop down more than we expected during our stay, given the amount we paid per night we thought it would be a tad more private but he was very friendly. Hi Siarn! Thank you for your lovely comments - our friendly Holiday Managers are there to help guests during their stays, so they do sometimes pop down to make sure you've got everything you need. We do apologise if this didn't match your expectations around privacy and take your comments on board. Hope to see you again!

JessieStayed February 2019
Great house for a group of couples as there’s plenty of space and a bathroom each, the pool and spa are great and well enjoyed. The property itself is slightly dated and in need of a little TLC for the price.
Hi Jessie, we are glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for your feedback on the property. We have passed your comments on to the owners to address and they have since carried out an anormous amount of maintenance on the property, improving both the exterior and interior with some exciting additions. We look forward to seing you again soon so you can experience Paradise View Lodge at its very best!

I was concerned that the property would not live up to the expectations that the photos had created. I was wrong to be concerned. From the moment we stepped through the front door we knew it was a special place. Well designed and laid out the house and grounds has everything you could want for a holiday home. The house was clean and tidy and beds made with really nice sheets and bedding. Some of the beds are very firm, so test them out before you decide rooms. The bedroom above the lounge can be noisy if people are still in the lounge when someone in there is trying to sleep, so save that one for your night owls. The property is only a 10 minute car trip down to Waipu or the beach, but if you don't want the beach, the spa and pool at the property are wonderful. To top off your relaxation ask Jeanie and Jessie to put you in touch Alex from Infinity Massage. Alex is a local and will come up to the property and offers great massages. I can testify to that. There is a small room on the property by the pool that can be used for massages. All in all, a great place to relax and unwind. I'd go back tomorrow! Dianne
