NEW! Holiday Home

NEW! Holiday Home

Geoff & Chris have built a brand-new award winning luxury home which is now available for your group of discerning guests up to 6 persons at Haruru Falls near Paihia right in the middle of The Bay of Islands.

Just a few kilometres to the beach and right by the Waitangi River this holiday home has views over the reserve and easy access to all the 'must do' places throughout Northland.

This fully equipped self-catering home has 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master and 2nd bedroom are both en-suite. The 3rd bedroom - which has twin beds - has a shared bathroom arrangement with the 2nd bedroom.

For full details, price and to check on availability of this luxury holiday opportunity, please check out our listing on Home Away. If you would prefer to book direct with us you are welcome to use the 'contact us' page on this website.

Because this is a brand-new house we regret no children below the age of 8, no pets, nor Stag or Hen parties. Sorry.

Your Hosts at 88 Lodge

Geoff & Chris left 20 years of service sector management. We both enjoy meeting new people and just knew being B&B hosts would be perfect for us.

Our dream was to create a premier accommodation in the Bay of Islands. Looking for a quality accommodation? You will find it hard to beat 88 Lodge Bed and Breakfast.  Check out our Guest Book and our Trip Advisor Reviews.

Our Guest Book page is an exact transcription of what guests have written about us. “Too good to be true?" then you will just have to enjoy the 88 Lodge Bed and Breakfast experience yourself and read these reviews whilst you are here.

A cheerful welcome awaits you with a good old cuppa. The kettle is always on.

Individual attention you do not find in other accommodations. Step out of your comfort zone and into a Bed and Breakfast you will rave about to all your  friends.

Chris is passionate about the gardens. Joining our guests on a stroll through the woods and lawns, the orchards and hidden away places pointing out the amazing flora and fauna which makes 88 Lodge so unique.

We love to make sure you get the very best out of your stay with us. With a vast knowledge of the locality we are always happy to help you plan your day trips and restaurant reservations ensuring you get the very most out of your time in wonderful Northland New Zealand.

In August 2016 Rocco joined the host team here at 88 Lodge.  Rocco is a chocolate coloured Lab cross who is placid, calm and laid back.  He just loves cuddles, tickles and treats no matter who gives it to him.

Hosts, hospitality and service comes at no extra charge.


It's not many who receive ‘HALL OF FAME’ status. This makes us a B&B not to be missed
