Our Enchanting Bed and Breakfast New Zealand!

Sometimes you are lucky to find truly unique places. Places that will stay in your heart for a long time. WoodyHanger is for sure one of those – we were lucky to land in this accommodation Whitianga NZ. If you’re looking for an amazing bed and breakfast New Zealand, this is the spot for you!

When searching for hotels for our 6-day road trip around northern New Zealand, I realized I had a challenge. Finding the boutique and personal experience outside the main cities wasn’t easy. But I am so happy I did not give up until I found an incredible bed and breakfast New Zealand.

If describing this place in one word, breathtaking!

WoodyHanger Lodge – A Romantic Hideaway!

WoodyHanger Lodge is located on top of a mountain just outside Whitianga,  a small town on the Coromandel peninsula.  A truly hidden gem, not easy to find unless you know where you are going. We first got a bit sceptic when driving up the very narrow road along the mountain, corner after corner. But once on the top, we were both stunned by this bed and breakfast New Zealand.

We got a warm welcome from Warren & Carol, the owners of the paradise that was our accommodation Whitianga NZ. The personal touch, the feeling of being far away but still at home are key when we’re finding a lodging. At our lovely bed and breakfast New Zealand WoodyHanger you truly get all of this and so much more.

Warren & Carol gave us the warmest welcome to their bed and breakfast New Zealand. They proudly showed us around, served us homemade breakfast and helped out with the plans for our days. Still, they gave us full privacy! Being the only lodge they rent out on the property, this is the perfect romantic or “you time” hideaway. Here you will get total privacy but still being close to the Whitianga town and other attractions in the area.

Our Stylish & Cozy Accommodation Whitianga NZ

Our home for two nights turned out to be a fantastic bed and breakfast New Zealand, built on a plateau, one step up from Warren & Carol’s home. The design is lovely with Scandinavian influences in terms of the light colors with a touch of blue and earthy shades, the choice of furniture and the closeness to nature. Entering this accommodation Whitianga NZ feels like stepping into an interior design magazine. Stylish and modern, with no detail left behind, all in harmony with the gorgeous surroundings.

Even when you’re inside you have a good view through these big windows
Everything feels modern and comfy

Loved the fact that our room at this bed and breakfast New Zealand had windows in all four directions. Mountain view from the bed, the sea in front of you and the forest just outside the small kitchenette and the big bathroom. The only sounds that reach you here, are the sounds of nature and the song of the birds outside the window. A setting that makes this accommodation Whitianga NZ feel like a piece of heaven.

The Spectacular View

What takes your breath away is the view of this bed and breakfast New Zealand. At the end of the small pathway outside the lodge, you will find the most magic view over the landscape below and all the way to the sea. I loved to sit at the little bench at the highest point of my accommodation Whitianga NZ and just let my thoughts travel away!

We had to go out here in the morning, afternoon and at night. At all times the view of our accommodation Whitianga NZ was spectacular!

My favorite spot to let my thoughts travel away!

The Magic Mornings

When living in a place like this bed and breakfast New Zealand, you want to experience the best spectacles nature has to offer and here it is the sunrises. An unmissable moment of the day, even though it happened 05.50. We brought our morning tea, our flip-flops, and a blanket and just got lost in this natural wonder. Imagine always waking up like this? Maybe then, I could turn off my snooze button on the phone forever at this magic accommodation Whitianga NZ…

WoodyHanger is definitely the place for magical mornings!

After a magic wake up, my favorite thing to do in our bed and breakfast New Zealand was to get back into the warm bed to read a book for an hour or two. If every morning looked like this….

Our days at the bed and breakfast New Zealand were all about unwinding, and I didn’t mind spending an hour or two in this comfy bed with a book.

The Tasty Breakfast

The homemade continental breakfast of our accommodation Whitianga NZ is served whenever you want and consists of a delicious fruit salad, yogurt, toast, tea & coffee. Eating it outside made it taste even better. The last morning, we even moved the table to the lawn outside to get breakfast with a view. It’s certainly one of the highlights of this bed and breakfast New Zealand!

Breakfast is served, who wouldn’t mind having breakfast at this accommodation Whitianga NZ?

The Dreamy Pool

In front of the main house of this bed and breakfast New Zealand, there is a gorgeous pool, facing the sea. So if you are ready for a morning or afternoon swim in this accommodation Whitianga NZ, it is just to jump in. 

As if the view wasn’t enough, you also have this pool for yourself to enjoy.

The Stunning Location

Once you’ve reached this bed and breakfast New Zealand, you do not want to leave. You could easily stay in this accommodation Whitianga NZ all day, in bed, on the bench, in the pool, just taking it all in, finding peace, blogging and enjoying life!

It looks like a getaway far away, but it’s so close to the Whitianga town and everything you need is 5-10 minutes away

While you might be tempted to just stay at this bed and breakfast New Zealand, there is so much to explore and see in the country. Plus, the location for exploring the Coromandel peninsula is just perfect. The Whitianga town is just a 5-10 minutes’ drive from the lodge with supermarkets, restaurants, and stores. 30 minutes away, you will find the popular Hot Water Beach and Cathedral Cove. If you like us are up for some less touristic places, I can strongly recommend the Cook beach and a lunch and wine tasting at the lovely Mercury Bay Estate Winery. You could even take the ferry from Whitianga directly to the Cook beach for another experience and to limit your driving time!

Wine tasting and a delicious lunch at Mercury Bay Estate!

The Surrounding

The cute and picturesque Coromandel is just a 45 min to 1-hour drive away. A very scenic drive with some of the best beaches along the way. The Coromandel Peninsula is full of things to explore, all within reach from our bed and breakfast New Zealand.

As this was our last stop of our Northern New Zealand adventure, we drove to Coromandel and then down to Thames before heading back to Auckland. The coastal road between Coromandel and Thames are just stunning with lots of viewpoints and the last part with the sea by your side.

We had a truly memorable time at the WoodyHanger Lodge and I can only give my warmest recommendations for this bed and breakfast New Zealand! Warren & Carol, thanks a million for sharing your piece of paradise with us. We truly hope to be back one day!
