10/10 Exceptional

My wife and I stayed three nights at the Whakaipo Lodge as part of a 12 day NZ vacation. We have traveled to many countries and stayed and some wonderful venues. My wife and I agree that Whakapio Lodge ranks as our favorite. Angie and Garth are amazing hosts. The room we had was spacious, private, modern, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast is not an afterthought but a great home cooked meal. Wine (Garth knows wines) and canapés (by Angie) was a great way to end the day. We opted for a three course dinner one night and it was a great treat. Thank you Garth and Angie for making our stay so memorable!

Just delightful
Amazing all around. Angie and Garth are incredible hosts, the lodge itself is fantastic, clean, comfortable and relaxing. Cute lambs and nice farm area if you want to explore, beautiful walks and biking trails nearby. The food and service was impeccable. We got afternoon tea on arrival, a complimentary glass of wine and delicious breakfast the next morning. I would go back In a heartbeat!

The hospitality was above anything I have experienced before. Angie & Garth provided local and country recommendations that were very helpful. We shared a lovely evening with our host and fellow travelers discussing travel and current events. Angie & Garth provided evening appetitizers and wine. We also arranged to have a delicious dinner on site. Breakfast and dinner included foods from their garden and everything was outstanding. I would recommend staying with Angie & Garth.
