The Best Retreat

Posted Jan 11, 2015
Pros: The secluded location, the staff especially Lane & Teresa and the food The animal noise each night and each morning
Cons: I cannot think of anything
Location: The hot tubs in the woods The stream walk The local beaches
We arrived after a long journey from Auckland all the staff were very helpful, we stayed for two days had great breakfasts and even better diners The Retreat was very well set out and had everything we could ask for We drove to a close beach that was not that busy so made our day thee very pleasurable We took a walk in the stream up to a dipping pool that was also very nice

The perfect get away

Posted Dec 8, 2014
We were looking for a relaxing get away for our 1st anniversary and searched and searched with a handful of criteria. It had to be private, good food, beautiful scenery and a spa or bath. It had everything and some. The cottage was made with the highest quality and everything was perfect. We will be returning for the next 70 years

Pros: Clean, comfortable, and a good size for our family of 5.
This is a fabulous place for doing a lot or nothing but taking in the surroundings. It is very clean and tidy, we'll worth the trip. Love the size of the units. Great all round and we'll be revisiting again.
