WE ARE ON NEW ZEALAND TV
The very delightful Michael Holland and the team at TVNZ Seven Sharp have done a lovely article on Marahau and the our Lodge off the back of our success in the annual TripAdvisor 2018 awards.
Meet the Kiwi couple who left their big money jobs in London to come home to open a lodge in little old Marahau in the Tasman Region. Three years on, and they've got the best service in the country, according to TripAdvisor. Even with the wrath of Ex-Cyclone Gita, they were still getting positive reviews.
