The accommodation near Gisborne provides a true sense of seclusion and yet the city is only minutes away. On top of the world with its setting and superb views, it gives you the best of whatever holiday you are looking for, long sunny days at the beach to walking excursions through the quiet countryside. Even with an abundance of outdoor activities at your fingertips, the biggest challenge for any guest will be leaving the tranquil surroundings this beautiful lodge provides!
