Mahoenui Lodge

Mahoenui Lodge is a charming and beautifully proportioned 2-storey barn-style dwelling. Boutique accommodation at its best.

Set in 5 acres of English country garden within the village of Coatesville, renowned for rural atmosphere, vineyards, orchards and established gardens. A haven of peace and tranquillity only 20 minutes from Auckland City.

Novice and expert gardeners will enjoy meandering through mature trees, rhododendrons and camellias while colourful rose beds infuse the air with perfume.

A bridge takes you across a lily pond complete with resident fish and ducks to the lower farmlet.

Luxurious yet unpretentious, the oak panelling and fly fishing theme, create an easy space to retreat to the fireside warmth of the inglenook. Beyond the french doors, relax in the sheltered Mediterranean courtyard with outdoor fire and bbq. A hot tub, adjacent to the courtyard sits discreetly amongst trees.

Upstairs the bedrooms epitomize rustic romance. The master bedroom, with open fire and super-king bed has views over the gardens by moonlight. The guest room, with queen bed is a quiet hideaway.

Between the two bedrooms - the bathroom has a tumbled marble shower with views across the ponds and lower gardens.
