The space
This is a quiet paradise close to the city. This cottage is very private, stand-alone Chalet, open plan, warm in winter, cool in summer with a heat/cool pump. There is up to date information on where to go, what to do, bus timetables etc.

PLEASE NOTE:
There will be ONE QUEEN size bed ready for you on arrival.

You will need to pay an extra $20 per person for the 2 King Singles or King bed to be made up. Just let us know.
If you forget to tell us, you may all have to pile in together in the ONE queen bed - sorry folks we have had too many people leaving and not paying.

This space is NOT child-friendly, however, babies are more than welcome and are no additional cost.
You will need to bring your own cot/bed.

NZ Winter = (June - Oct) - great skiing and winter vistas.
Spring = (Sept - Nov ) - great to see the daffodils and cherry blossoms.
Summer = (Nov - April) - fabulous time with lots of daylight and warmth
Autumn = (May - June) - Beautiful autumn colours and stunning time for photography.
Vicky can take you on a Photographic tour. All the fantastic secret areas in the South Island.

Guest access
Follow the signs that say "Cabbage Tree Retreat" to the back of the property. A wooden path will take you right to your front door. Large full-length verandah will lead you to the large sliding doors.

Other things to note
There is a boutique craft beer pub called "Pomeroy's" just 3-4 mins walk from us. They also do quality breakfasts.
This location is only 400m walk to the local supermarket. Nearby are takeaway food outlets - Thai, Indian, Chinese, fish n chips. There are 2 gas stations with the cheap Petrol/Diesel. A Pharmacy, other cafes and vege markets are all within 500m radius of the "Cabbage Tree Retreat" - but you don't hear any of the busy surrounds because you are in a bush-clad area. Very quiet!

I have a wide variety of interests. I enjoy sharing our big garden and Chalet with my guests. Welcome, it will be lovely to meet you, come on in and just relax. I love to cycle, Mt Bike, ski, snow bike. I have ridden horses all my life, I represented NZ in cycling and have 28 years of being a Registered Nurse. I take great pleasure in entertaining people who appreciate and respect our peaceful and tranquil surroundings. I take tours beyond Cabbage Tree Retreat. We explore our local areas, country, mountains and beaches, look for wildlife,- baby seals, and penguins. My tours are relaxed and I stop here and there at your leisure. If you are keen to go to Tekapo-Mt Cook; if a hike sounds like you, then take a peek at “Arahi Tours NZ”. I can organise a 3-day hike along the summit of the volcanoes this is called the "Te Ara Pataka" Walk, -huts are only $15.00 per night and a wonderful experience.
