“A magical haven”
Reviewed 25 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

From the first time we saw the City Bush retreat we wanted to stay there. And it was everything we hoped for-beautiful, restful, close to both Auckland and nature! Plus it has a waterfall and glow worms! We made a fire and read and listened to the rain when it rained, and enjoyed the area, beaches. The place itself is filled with light and the smell of wood (loved that), with a beautiful full kitchen, a bedroom with views of trees, and a light, modern bathroom.
Honestly this was one of our favorite places that we have rented.
