Your Hosts

Hi! We’re Peter and Greg.

We’ve been the proud owners of Arcadia Lodge since April 2017, and it gives us great joy to welcome guests from all over the world to our piece of paradise. We live in a separate house on the same property as Arcadia Lodge, giving our guests space to unwind while being right at hand to help orchestrate the Northland trip of a lifetime.

We have a passion for food, travel and impeccable service. For you, that means a relaxing stay that goes beyond a pillow and a door key. It also means we have a Qualmark rating of 4.5 gold stars, born out of a desire to exceed expectations and cater for your individual needs.

Prior to Arcadia, Greg worked for a media publication in Dallas before embarking on the journey of a lifetime. He explored the world on sailboats until arriving in New Zealand, where he decided to stay. Greg’s greatest skill is making everyone feel right at home, going above and beyond to ensure your stay is a memorable one.

Peter is a trained chef, having owned corporate & event catering companies for over 20 years. He’s also been a fully registered nurse in both emergency care and mental health. Peter now brings his business experience and passion for food to Arcadia Lodge, believing that travel is deeply rooted in enjoying different cuisines.
