As a solo traveler, finding a place that combines safety, comfort, and adventure can be challenging, but Karikari Lodge delivered on all fronts. The serene surroundings and the cozy cabin were perfect for some much-needed solitude. The morning walks along the coast were rejuvenating, and the local wine recommendations were spot on. Thank you, Paul and Katalina, for your wonderful tips and genuine care. I’ve left with beautiful memories and new friends!

We had the most unforgettable family vacation at Karikari Lodge! From the moment we arrived, Paul and Katalina made us feel right at home with their warm hospitality. Our kids loved the nearby beach and the horseback riding adventures. The evenings spent around the fire pit, roasting marshmallows and stargazing, were truly magical. We’re already planning our return next year. Thank you for making our stay so special!
