Located in the heart of the Waitakere Ranges and close to Karekare
and Piha surf beaches, Lone Kauri Lodge is an ideal base for exploring
the many walking tracks in the ranges, relaxing after a day at the
beach, recuperating after the long flight to New Zealand, before setting
off to visit the rest of our country, or reflecting on your holiday
before your trip home.
For you and your friends or family we provide comfortable bed and
breakfast accommodation and for your pets and in particular dogs,
shelter and a secure enclosure. For your car, camper van or motor cycle
there is ample off street parking.
We look forward to welcoming you to our corner of paradise.

Lone Kauri Lodge is approximately 50 minutes drive from the centre of
Auckland and a similar time from Auckland International Airport.
We are approximately 8 kms (a 10 to 15 minute drive) from both Piha
with its renowned surf beach and Karekare where the Piano was filmed.
From the junction of Piha Road and Scenic Drive follow Piha Road for
10 kms and turn left into Lone Kauri Road. Follow Lone Kauri Road and
take the first right into La Trobe Track. Follow La Trobe Track for
about 400 metres to the entrance to the lodge on the left.
Please take care on both Piha Road and Lone Kauri Road. Lone Kauri
Road in particular is narrow and twisty and you should always be
prepared for vehicles coming in the opposite direction.
