Katoa Country Lodge
offers numerous options for bed and breakfast and homestay guests; catering for couples and families. In addition to bedrooms in the Lodge, we have Hideaway Cottage (ideal for honeymooners, or those wanting extra peace and quiet) plus a self-contained one bedroom unit and two self contained studio units in the delightful stand-alone cottage. See photographs below.

All bedrooms at Katoa Country Lodge have ensuite bathrooms.

Our prices range from $110 - $180 NZ double per night, which includes, of course, our wonderful country breakfast in the morning. Dinner is by arrangement at $30-$42pp, and we are famous for our home-cooked roast dinners! There is also a swimming pool for a dip in summer.

We are a pet-friendly bed and breakfast and offer kennels for dogs, and we can even offer short-term grazing if you would like to bring your horse. It would be a pleasure to show you some wonderful places to ride around beautiful Gisborne.

For those who want to experience a farm in action and interact with the animals, there are plenty of opportunities on our 25 acres, with our horses, sheep, cattle and dogs. This is the complete homestay experience in rural New Zealand.
