Wilderness & Ecotourism

Purpose built, Paramata Lodge sits on the site of an old sawmill with an ecological reserve at the doorstep and the beach 200 metres beyond.  Host Kathy Gilbert has secured a Department of Conservation concession which allows her to take guests on guided tours through the ancient podocarp forest, sharing wildlife encounters with enthusiasm. A one hour guided walk is complimentary, with scope for more extensive tours available on request.

Ideally one would spend two or three nights at Paramata, allowing time to explore the surrounding area, and the comfort and energy of the house.

Much of the timber used in the interior of Paramata was unearthed from the site.  The silver pine used to panel interior walls was found packed in sand and formed the foundation for the 1904 sawmill boiler which now sits at the front gate of the property. Co-owner of Paramata, Neil, is an artist in wood and metal and his fascinating work is on show throughout the house and garden.

Kathy is an excellent cook and enjoys nothing more than the company of her guests as she prepares dinner in her stunning kitchen. Organically homegrown vegetables and fruit are used in her healthy delicious cuisine.

One has the feeling of being very much part of the environment with expansive double glazed windows and bi-fold doors allowing the outside in.
