Gem of a place!! Unique hilltop setting with great views of Golden Bay. Simple and tidy cabin with access to tidy outdoor kitchen area. Also loved the loo with a view :)

Unfortunately my friends and I were unable to travel down to Golden Bay from Wellington as our flights were cancelled by the airline. Although at this time I am unable to comment on the accommodation the service and communication i recieved from them was amazing. They were quick to respond to questions about the place and when I explained about the situation regarding cancellation they were sympathetic and offered a small consolation which was very kind considering they were not obligated to do so.

Beautiful little paradise with amazing views of Golden Bay. Our cabin was really nice and lovely decorated with fresh flowers from the garden. Everything was clean and we enjoyed the nice kitchen with view. It's great that everything is so eco-friendly and you can buy some free range eggs also. We got a lot of tips what to do in the area and enjoyed the walks we did. A quiet beach is just a little walk away from the cabins. The sky during the night is stunning as you can see a lot of stars due to the complete darkness around. We would have loved to stay a lot longer than just 2 nights! Thanks you so much for this amazing experience!

This place is simply the best spot for a relaxing stay - we started to unwind as soon as we drove in. James and Rosie are vey welcoming and wonderful hosts. Our regret is that we did not have long enough there and would love to go back for a longer stay. Great night's sleep, great shower and the views and locations ... wow!

Rosie & James User ProfileRosie & James is a superhost.

We are originally from the UK,where Rosie was a Yoga teacher of over 20 years experience and James had run an organic farm for 15 years,as well as being a Dowsing enthusiast. We first visited NZ in 2001,fell in love with the place and moved here permanently in 07, gaining citizenship last year. We lived in Christchurch for two years,then set off on a national tour looking for the perfect place in this wonderful country. Four years ago we found it here in Golden Bay,a former Buddhist center, now our Ao Marama Retreat. Which we run on eco organic principals.Rosie is available for private Yoga lessons and James for Dowsing tuition.
