We adore Children and know that you adore yours.  Therefore, if you would like to holiday with your kids here you are more than welcome.

We would like you to note two things with regards to our under age fellows. 

Children under 12 must be supervised at all times.  Additionally, Maiala Park Lodge is not set up for children – this includes breakable items within reach in the common areas, no door on the kitchen, fireplaces that are lit when weather permits and stairs without childproof stair gates. Breakages will be payable under the damages policy below. We do not accept liability for injury that would not have occurred for an adult. It is not permissible to leave any child or teenager (17 and under) on-site without a parent or guardian.

We highly recommend that groups with children also book the function room as this room can be child proof.


No guest pets are permitted. 

Maiala Park Lodge does host Willow (a dog) and Iroh (a cat) .  Willow roams the grounds which includes the verandahs.  Iroh is an indoor cat.  Neither Willow or Iroh are allowed in the common living room, kitchen or guest bedrooms at any time.   If you have any concerns about the presence of the pets, please advise us in advance and we will be able to contain their movements during your stay.
