Hopewell Lodge – Kenepuru Sound

Welcome to Hopewell – where relaxation meets adventure in the heart of Kenepuru Sound!

Hopewell isn’t your average lodge – it’s a cozy, award-winning, self-catering haven that feels more like a plush retreat. Nestled on the water’s edge, in a natural environment of gardens and forest, we’ve got comfort, relaxation, and unbeatable value. Now, they’re not just about the comfy beds and stunning sea views, Mike and Lynley, your hosts, go the extra mile, serving up killer espresso, gourmet pizzas, and other homemade goodies to satisfy your taste buds.

Take your pick from the comfy double, twin, or family rooms, or opt for the fully self-contained cottage – it’s your home away from home. With king beds and top-notch linen, private bathrooms, and decks with those killer sea views. The guest kitchen is like a chef’s dream, fully equipped with sharp knives, quality cooking gear and plenty of fridge and freezer space. And there’s a luxurious guest lounge and dining area with books galore, board games and a log fire.

But it’s not just about the indoors – they’ve got the outdoors covered too. Double and single kayaks, SUP boards, mountain bikes, dinghies, and fishing gear are all yours for the taking. Want to try your luck with snapper fishing? They’ve got you covered right off the beach.

Feeling like a round of golf? Nopera Bay Golf Club is just down the road, and they’ve got transport sorted. Oh, and did we mention they’ve got high-speed, unlimited WIFI and stellar cell phone reception?

Getting there is a breeze when you set off from Havelock Marina. There are moorings availabe – and their concrete jetty is accessible at most tides and you are welcome to use the kayaks to get to and from the shore.
