You will not be disappointed! We have a unique rustic self contained 3 bedroom house built from recycled materials.
We provide good, clean, comfortable accommodation suitable for 1 or 2 couples or a family.
We're situated on a small hill with magnificent views over farmlands to the sea & back to the Seaward Kaikoura Ranges.
You will not be disappointed with the views, the property or the animals that you have a chance to interact and get up close and feed! They love their photos being taken.

A wonderfully relaxing place to stay with amazing views of the sea and mountains of Kaikoura. We really enjoyed ourselves and could easily have stayed longer. Definitely coming back!

The retreat have a nice view, spectacular view on second floor. Lovely animals. You have everything you need. I will find another holiday in winter to spend some days with my family. Cozy and relaxing stay. Bob light up the fireplace before we arrived which is so sweet!
