The Buddha Bungalow @ Birdsong Retreat is a self-contained unit out of sight of the main house with a separate driveway entrance. Nestled in the bush by the stream, this finished rustic dwelling with stunning views is the perfect place to retreat from the busyness of urban life.
Here you will be immersed in nature, surrounded by birdcalls, and begin to re-connect to the earth and beauty that is all around us. It’s perfect for a solo retreat or a couple’s quiet getaway.

Everyone welcome.

If you're looking for some peace and quiet with an outstanding view, look no further. The Buddha Bungalow is rustic yet comfortable; sit and watch bellbirds feeding and kereru tiffing over roosting spots. Complete relaxation :)

Awesome spot with a great view. Loved listening to the birds chirping in joyfully in the morning! Cooking in the semi outdoor kitchen was such fun, like camping in luxury. Would return without a doubt.
