The SpaceWelcome to the Boathouse!
The Boathouse is perfect for a romantic weekend. It has been converted into spectacular yet affordable accommodation, with heaps of character and two large rooms. There is a comfortable sitting room with kitchenette complete with oven, hot plates, sink and tea/coffee making facilities. There is a couch that can be used as a single bed. The boating decor, complete with antique boating accessories, painted waves & clouds, high ceiling, Stable doors and Cedar finishes creates a unique ambience!
The next door bedroom is lined with sweet smelling Japanese Cedar and has charming decor including model boats, bronze propellor, old travel trunks and rustic wall mounted textile. The Queen bed has a spectacular and high level view straight down the river through the shell of the old Slipway. Enjoy the ducks in the water below or dancing fantails and the occassional swinging possum in the rafters of the old slipway, just outside the large viewing window.
There are two private decks with garden and river views. A short walk away (less than a minute) is the central facilities block with showers and toilets.

Interaction with GuestsSome guests like privacy, while others like interaction and guidance on local attractions and events. We are happy to help when asked. The NeighborhoodThe creative tropical gardens and park like grounds go down to the edge of the river. We are surrounded by horses and luxury properties on one side and a river and famous, historic reserve and on the other side. The river flows down the entire length of our property and meets the KeriKeri Sea Inlet . A walking track leads to two waterfalls (considered the best walk in the area) & starts at our Lodge.
Great kayaking on the river and we have a private jetty.
Getting AroundIt only takes 20 minutes to walk to town through the woods, and there are good local taxis and inter-city or major town bus services. Other Things to NoteThe Pagoda Lodge Estate comprises 2 acres of gardens and mature trees. There are creative, multi-tiered grounds offering many private and tranquil spaces. There is a gentle flowing river and wide views to the Inlet and adjacent, large Historic Pa Site. As such, we have plentiful and varied bird-life. Please respect our wildlife and do not feed the ducks.
The river is a fish reserve, so no fishing allowed. No children in the old boat shed (lower level) and no swimming without supervision of parents.
