We are a luxury B & B, on a hill just south of Paihia, within a 10-minute walk to all the restaurants in town. All of three guest rooms are on the north and ocean facing side of the building and have floor to ceiling sliding glass doors, through which an expansive and spectacular sea view is visible. The sliding glass doors open onto your own private terrace with your personal hot tub, breakfast table and a small garden full of unique New Zealand flora and fauna.
Just a ten-minute walk from central Paihia, Tarltons Lodge provides quick access to all local amenities, restaurants, tours and beaches, as well as assuring a complete escape from any hustle and bustle.
We hear from our many satisfied guests, and read in their Trip Advisor reviews, that the two overall memorable aspects of our Lodge are the awesome panoramic ocean view and the tranquil silence and absence of any traffic noise, yet still only a 7-minute walk to the town.
With respect to this commanding sea view, from the moment you enter Tarltons Lodge and walk out onto the lower terrace or the upper balcony, the 170-degree ocean panorama owns you. When you wake up in the morning and look out from your king size bed, the view is there. Additionally, throughout most of the year at dawn, the sunrises erupt in a kaleidoscope of riotous colour which floods into your room and assaults your vision.
Access to your private section of the terrace is by a staircase, exclusive to your use.
The lounge upstairs if part of our, Peter & Katalina's private residence, however we do serve breakfast there in the morning if the weather is poor.
Interaction with guests
Peter & Katalina who manage and live on premise and are available to assist you with any help you may need. On occasion, we are assisted in managing the lodge by our daughter, Natasha. We can be reached by phone, which numbers can be found in the black information folders we provide you with, in the rooms. When away from the lodge, we are generally only 10-15 minutes away should you require our urgent assistance for anything.
Other things to note
Each of our three guest rooms have been designed solely with your privacy, relaxation and pleasure in mind. We do not accept young children or nor pets on the premises (no matter how much we love both). No smoking is permitted on the lower guest room floor and terrace, however, we do provide a designated smoking area on the upper floor porch facing the car park.
Tarlton's Lodge is the ultimate haven to relax and re-energize. To be treated as your home away from home. We do not tolerate kindly to noisy or inconsiderate guests that may disrupt the stay of others. Our general rule: Treat others as you want to be treated.
