Sherwood Lodge offers tranquil accommodation nestled in native bush with spectacular views of the city & mountains. Surrounded by private forest & birdsong, it offers all the peace & quiet of nature, conveniently located less than 5km from the city centre.
Once a traditional resting place for the local Ngati Mamoe & Ngai Tahu people, this remains the perfect place to relax and unwind, in a quiet, pleasant suburb overlooking the city.
We have options to also book single rooms & the whole property.
Guest accommodation is the entire upper floor of the house. The upper floor comes with king size bedroom with ensuite bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, two living rooms, laundry room and decks overlooking the mountains. The house has decks and lots of sunny outdoor spaces, private walkways through the trees and quiet places to sit and relax. Even though it's so close to town, the house feels wonderfully secluded and peaceful.
The upper floor is only available when the owners are away, so when it is available to book then you will be staying in a part of the house that has their belongings in it.
The upstairs is separated from any downstairs guests by a floor-length curtain at the bottom of the stairs, which sections off the two floors, provides privacy and maintains temperature.
Due to logistic & fire safety concerns, there is no locked door between the two floors. We live in the upstairs 95% of the time and have never had any security concerns that would necessitate a lockable barrier. Based on guests' request, we have also added a small gate with a "Private" sign to help keep the two floors clearly separated.
