About The Lodge

Island life, on your doorstep.

Pigeons Lodge is conveniently located a short walk around the bay from the ferry landing, or an easy 20 minute drive from the airport. Nestled amongst beautiful Nikau palm bush, running down to the water's edge, with a large deck overlooking Shoal Bay.

Cafes, bars, restaurants and beautiful swimming beaches are conveniently located nearby. Kayak or catch a fish from the bottom of the garden. Enjoy fabulous sunset views from our lookout point.

Complementary use of equipment including kayaks, surfboards and boogie boards.

Great Barrier Island is a pacific paradise, with regular ferry service and flights from Auckland. The entire island is uniquely off the grid, with each property collecting its own water and generating its own electricity.

Most of the island is covered in native bush with abundant walking tracks to beautiful coastal vantage points.

The island has several well stocked general stores, meeting your every-day shopping needs.

Several on-island rental car companies service both the airport and ferry terminals.

Great Barrier Island is one of the world's few Dark Sky Sanctuaries. Be amazed by the crystal clear night skies.
