Hahei has been a very special place to our family for many years. So, a few years ago we decided to move here permanently. We built a house and added the lodge giving us the opportunity to share this beautiful area with others.
Our property is a conservation block and is covered in regenerating native trees and Pongas. Hence why we call it Ponga Lodge! The lodge is private and independent of the main house and overlooks a valley filled with Pongas.
We are in the process of re-planting native trees, mostly to attract native birds into the area. This is an ongoing project that pays out when we notice an increase in bird live in the trees.
We enjoy meeting people (local and overseas) and sharing our knowledge of the area. Watching the joy on guests faces when they talk about their days adventures is so heartening. Our area has so much to offer for the outdoor enthusiast, even those who just want to while away the time on the beach and in a hot pool at Hot Water Beach.
