You know you've got away from it all when you're relaxing on the deck looking out to breath taking sea views, watching dolphins frolic in a sun-kissed sea. Join us at Tipi and Bob's Waterfront Lodge and this kind of idyllic seaside accommodation is yours.
Great barrier is a Dark Sky's Sanctuary. Millions of stars you can watch from your units.

Located right on the shore, near white sandy beaches and shops, the Lodge has stunning views: The rainbow flecks of boats puttering around Tryphena Harbour, the clear sparkling waters of the Hauraki Gulf and in the distance the green arc of the Coromandel Peninsula on the New Zealand mainland.

All around you stretches the untouched wonderland of Great Barrier Island, a paradise of tranquil bush, towering Kauris, natural hot springs, and sandy beaches.

Enjoy fresh-from-the-ocean seafood in our licensed restaurant or just kick back in the bar and toast your good fortune. At Tipi and Bob's Waterfront Lodge we'd love to organise your conference, wedding or hoilday package including flights, rental cars, book your scenic day tours or arrange fishing kayaking, or golf. Our special fishing trips offer some of the best fishing in New Zealand. and we can give you the local lowdown on the top fishing spots, best beaches and most scenic walks. We can also arrange packages to suit your travel arrangements.
Hospitality is our business. Best Location, Best service.

And all this is just a half hour flight from Auckland, or a four-hour scenic cruise by ferry.

  • The one bedroom unit was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The 2 burner cooker limited the type of cooking that could be done but this wasn't a problem with a lovely restaurant downstairs and other eateries nearby. Margery was very helpful and the cleaning staff friendly. The wifi didn't work up in our top room but we were able to access it downstairs in the dining area when we needed to. The bed was comfortable. The view and the birds flying by were wonderful 5

  • The room was comfortable and cosy with views out over the harbour at Tryphena. The meals were excellent. The Lodge is very 1960/70s in style which is in tune with the island as a whole. Electric power (from the generator) is only available at certain times of the day but there is gas to cook on and for heating. Proprietor and staff all very friendly and helpful. A great experience 5

  • I was extremely happy with the host's hospitality, who even went as far as preparing a meal which I had requested that was not on the menu. This is definitely not my last visit there. 5

  • Expensive for the facilities provided. Customer service didn't come naturally to the managers. disappointed by standard of meal in relation to cost. $66 for 2 entrees, garlic bread and a glass of wine. 2
    CHRIS BAKEWELL - Mar 24, 2014 (Stayed Mar 2014) Travelbug verified review
  • Sorry Chris you were disappointed in your evening, as us as managers we take complaints seriously. But you fail to mention any positives about your stay. Was there any? I have great customer service I thought, but I guess you can't keep everyone happy which is a shame. Going by our dockets you had Glass Red wine $8, Seafood chowder $18.50, Panfried Squid $15.50, garlic bread (4pces)$8.50 and a dessert being Choc mud cake $15.50 with berries, that you forgot to record. $66 is reasonable to feed two people considering we live on a remote island. I hope this does not put you off coming back Chris as you will still be welcomed here.
