A 6,000-acre sheep and cattle farm is the charmingly pastoral setting for The Lodge & Golf Course at Cape Kidnappers—and explains its shorthand name “The Farm.” It’s reminiscent of the American West, though complemented by an 800-foot plunge into the Pacific. The property itself features 22 cottages and a four-bedroom Owner’s Cottage. All are graciously scaled rooms, full of natural light and unexpected treasures. Comfort and ease are felt as each room takes on a character of its own while maintaining the rural feeling of a New Zealand sheep station. Spacious cottages, each with breathtaking views, open to large porches overlooking a Pacific panorama. There’s plenty to keep you occupied whether you’re looking to work up a sweat in the state-of-the-art exercise room or in the spa, which includes a hot tub and heated infinity lap pool. A spacious lounge, a library which can be used as a private meeting room, and an extensive wine cellar are also onsite.
