Welcome to Mainstreet Lodge
Affordable Accommodation in Kaitaia

Mike welcomes guests to come and discover the unspoilt Far North. At Mainstreet Lodge we offer friendly, clean, comfortable and affordable accommodation in the heart of Kaitaia.

Bring your group and come join us around the wood fired pizza oven, this makes for a great evening, or throw a steak and sausage on the BBQ.

Mainstreet Lodge accommodation is situated in Kaitaia’s town centre, a great base for your Far North adventures and a short, flat walk to the shops. Tours to Cape Reinga and 90 Mile Beach are recommended and can be booked for you through our tour desk.

Dobra Dosli, Welcome, Kia Ora

For those of us who are privileged to live here we are proud of our rich multicultural heritage. Visitors are welcomed by town signage in Maori, English and Croatian, representing the three main cultures that built Kaitaia to what it is today.

Whare Te Ohonga

On our grounds is a special carved Maori meeting house – read about it here.

Group Bookings

We welcome group bookings for your family or friends and offer a special discount rate for groups of 10 or more when booked directly with us and 4 or more sharing a room.
