The Gardens are yours! Jun 08, 2011
Rapuara has a lodge available for approximately $160. USD per evening. An ENTIRE lodge!! The rooms are beautifully furnished, plenty of games, music, and books are provided...should you need. The bathroom is...oh! Well, you must take a bath there! The hosts offer to buy you a meal for $20. per person (meal= top choice steak with vegetables and a decadent dessert) which you can cook in the fully stocked kitchen. The setting is completely peaceful. It is so dark at night, that it is hard to imagine there is anybody else on Earth.

A short walk from the lodge are beautiful waterfalls and lily ponds. This location is truly ideal. About 45 minute drive from Coramandel and a short drive from Auckland. Definitely worth staying there for an evening. Even during the day, it stays pretty quiet (at least during the off season when I went.)

The main office has a great gift shop as well for those who want to do some shopping for friends. I got the best jewelry there for myself, too. Get loads of compliments on it.

Worth every cent!
