Mainstreet Lodge Kaitaia

Make yourself at home at Mainstreet Lodge in Kaitaia

Mainstreet Lodge is a great option for budget conscious travellers and backpackers, families big and small and for group bookings. The Far north is well known for the fishing, the outdoors and over 20 beaches. Definitely bring a hat, some water and 30+ sun block. Some travellers walk the 90 mile beach, some do the Te Araroa trail, some stay here for the seasonal work while most do the 1-day trip to Cape Reinga and spend the next day in the sun and surf up here.

A purpose built lodge for travellers and backpackers; Mainstreet is a clean, affordable and friendly place to spend your time. We have three types of rooms/units at the Lodge - Dorms (shared rooms), Studio rooms with shower and toilet that sleep up to 4 people and Family Rooms (Big studios for sleeping 5-7 people).

If you want to take that 'selfie-pic' standing on the tip of New Zealand - ask us to organise your day trip to Cape Reinga.

Mainstreet is 5 mins from the main town centre and the local grocery shop. It has large modern dining and kitchen facilities, a Maori meeting house to look through or spend your afternoon resting on a mattress. The off street parking is a plus. The pool table, table tennis, TV room available to use and our two resident cats love the attention.

All our guests have access to the extensive facilities of Mainstreet Lodge, including WiFi access – see the other facilities here.
