“it really is the perfect escape!”
Reviewed 19 June 2015 for a stay in April 2015

After a long flight from the UK and the hustle and bustle of Auckland, Powai is the perfect place to slow down and appreciate New Zealand's simple life.
Powai is an easy drive from Auckland, and once you start following the dirt track you begin to get an idea of what is in store for you. The distance from the main road means there is no traffic noise to wake you up, only bird song and the smell of coffee. If you are up in time then watching the sunrise from the deck (or your bed) is pretty special.
If you are a nature lover then there are plenty of birds, plants and fruit trees to spot in the garden. You'll find plenty of books around the accommodation to look up the local wildlife, or ask the hosts Cath and John who will help you with anything from bird watching, fishing spots or tide times if you want to get out on the kayaks.
The facilities are more than ample if you want to cook for yourself but the evening meal and breakfast that the hosts prepared were delicious.
I found Powai very well positioned for exploring the North Island, staying there on two separate occasions during my visit. As mentioned it is just 90 minutes from Auckland, Waipo Cove is a stunning surf beach about 40 minutes East, and the Bay of Islands to the North is both a beautiful and a historic part of New Zealand.
Whether you are a Kiwi wanting a break for a few days or travelling from overseas you will have a very comfortable and relaxing stay at Powai Lodge.
