The Riverside Homestead Waitangi


A peaceful estate and spacious modern lodge overlooking Waitangi River; 3 light-filled ensuite guest rooms, 2 with panoramic rural and river views, private balconies and lounge access. Alpacas, free-range hens, gourmet cuisine, fine NZ wine cellar.

No setting is richer in history or nature than the Bay of Islands, with Riverside Homestead central to cultural, gourmet, boating and tour activities. Iconic Waitangi Treaty Grounds are close, plus wineries, boutique cheese, confectioners and farmers’ markets 7 minutes’ drive away in Kerikeri and Paihia, with restaurants, food outlets and craft shops.

The long, sleek, architect-designed lodge and dining room have high, solid timber ceilings, while light-filled airconditioned ensuite rooms offer private panoramic balconies with garden access. Sequestered among tall trees, Riverside Homestead's alpacas & hens share a spray-free fresh and healthful haven. Professional hosts Rev Chris Wharehinga Swannell & Michael Hooper respect your privacy.
