Beautiful location along Karaka Bay with gorgeous views across the ocean into Wellington. Falling asleep to the sound of the sea.

Over the hill from the big city, but a world away in terms of relaxation. This has been our favorite lodging throughout the North Island, by far. The waterfront location is stunning, but convenient to Wellington. Our hosts Stella and Juergen were beyond gracious, and gave us lots of useful tips and suggestions for not only Wellington but also for the surrounding region. Highest recommendation possible!

This is a great location right on the coast, away from central Wellington but close. The hospitality was outstanding and the hosts were very helpful with things to do and directions. Breakfast was incredible!

Amazing views and great host
We loved our stay of 2 nights at Edgewater Lodge and wish we had spent some more time there. It is located 20mins car ride from downtown with really beautiful unobstructed views of the ocean. Stella is a great host, she provided us with plenty of information on places to see, eat and how to navigate around Wellington.

Wonderful B&B
I was a bit concerned when we were shown our room due to the fact that it was on the lower level and the road was right outside the door. But the owner assured me it would be quiet, he was right. There was very little traffic going by overnight and not a problem at all. The room was clean and comfortable and the hosts were wonderful with lots of tips about the area. Would stay there again!

I loved spending 4 nights here. Stella and Jurgen were fantastic hosts and I really enjoyed the breakfasts, both for the amazing food as well as really helpful information. They really seemed genuinely interested in where I was planning to go, and made very good suggestions based on their extensive local knowledge. The rooms were top notch, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. I'd definitely go back again.

We loved the location - right on the water with views from every room, and a bit away from city lights and traffic. Stella, the proprietor and host, was warm and welcoming, attentive to details regarding our care and stay. Her breakfasts were always feasts that prepared us for the day’s adventure. She’s engaging and joyful, but can leave guests alone to get on with it if they’re happy being independent. The furnishings are lovely, the whole property exquisite, and the overall experience wonderful.
