New Zealand destinations
We're right on the water's edge at Tryphena, one of Great Barrier Island's gateways to beautiful beaches and intoxicating native bush and bird life.
It's the perfect spot to relax and watch the sun set.
Accommodation options include stylish self-contained Beach Villas and magical Beachfront Studios and all essential facilities are at hand with a neighboring superette, takeaways, liquor wholesale, fish bait/ice supplies, petrol, diesel, laundry, café and bar.
We can organize a transfer for you from Tryphena Wharf or from Claris Airfield when you arrive or depart from Great Barrier Island. Prices are competitive and you can pay the driver directly.
We can also help our guests arrange their Island transport before arrival. Just ask when you make your accommodation booking with us.
Check out our website (http://sunsetlodge.co.nz/see-and-do/) for things to do around us but if you don’t feel like venturing too far around the Barrier, we have plenty for you to do right here at Sunset Waterfront Lodge.
Games Galore – Enjoy volleyball, right on our own private reserve or simply head to the safe swimming beach straight over the road.
Smokin’ – Once you’ve returned with your catch of the day, you’re welcome to usethe fish cleaning facilities at the Lodge. Use our fish smoker to get your fish ready for eating or simply throw it on the BBQ.
Yoga anyone? – We have just the spot for focussing the body and mind while enjoying the fresh air. We call it ‘the island’ and it’s a quiet, green sanctuary
right near the Beach Villas. It’s peaceful and private and a fantastic place for yoga, Tai Chi or Pilates. A yoga session can be arranged for you or your group.
Relaxing Massage – What better way to unwind than a professional theraputic massage in such a glorious setting. We’d be happy to book a session for you.
Feed the pet eels! – A very popular activity with our guests who are young at heart. The Lodge has a gentle stream running through the property which offers a safe haven for tame eels – lots of fun to find and feed.
Drinks at Sunset – Our location offers one of the best places to watch the sun set on the Barrier. Why not enjoy a wine on the lawn or your own private deck while sharing a tale or two about the one that got away!
