Morepork Riverside Lodge, Paihia

Your Hosts:     Paul & Barbara Linton


Welcome to our slice of Kiwi Heaven.  We are both born and bred Kiwis and would love to share our passion for New Zealand with your clients. 

Morepork Riverside Lodge is a quality B&B with Homestay hospitality. Set in four acres of native bush and gardens on the banks of the Waitangi River.  We are 8 minutes from Paihia and 14 minutes from Kerieri, so this is the perfect, peaceful place from which to explore the Bay and Northland beyond.  

Sit by the river or stroll through our bush which is home to many native birds including Tui, Fantails and Moreporks (NZ native owls). We’re striving to keep NZ 100% Pure and we are TripAdvisor “GreenLeaders” Gold level. 

Guests will enjoy a sumptuous continental breakfast, including a selection of seasonal fresh fruits, cheeses, cold meats and our own free range eggs. We can offer a variety of evening meals (by prior arrangement) including simple snacks, New Zealand specialties (e.g. green-lipped mussels, premium lamb, pavlova) and European favourites.

Paul's interests include Diving and Sailing and Barb's interests include New Zealand History and Gardening.  We have both travelled extensively throughout New Zealand and the Pacific and in some part of Europe and the USA.
