Building a Luxury Wilderness Lodge
Our dream was to build one of the finest Luxury Lodges in New Zealand. Our goal was for the Lodge to reflect the Natural beauty that surrounds it. It was a labor of love, designed and hand built by our 3 generation family for over 10 years.
"We are excited to share this little corner of paradise with you."
In 1991 Bruno and Monika were lucky enough to buy Westhaven. It was the astounding Beauty and Wilderness of this New Zealand peninsula, which had cast a spell on us.
After many years of running a Bed and Breakfast, Bruno suggested rebuilding to a more sophisticated Luxury Lodge. One year later, Bruno had designed a complex and stunning architectural building of 2000 square meters.
A Labor of Love
Construction of the Lodge began in March 2004. From every schist stone to the timber coffee tables, everything has been constructed by our family in New Zealand's traditional colonial style. It is the love of every detail and the challenge of a building that will match the most beautiful surroundings, that has kept us going for ten years. Finally we can share our beautiful Lodge and peninsula with our guests.
We have put a lot of effort in building one of New Zealand's finest Luxury Wilderness Lodges. However that's only half the journey.
Now we will do our best to help you enjoy a memorable and amazing holiday with us! We provide a intimate and family hosted environment to help you feel relaxed and comfortable.
