What can you say about but this place but just awesome really. Heath was a legend in giving us his own car to use, picking us up in town, giving us a tour and even showing us the view from his own property which was superb.

Free cars were the bonus as you do need one really to get around or else there will be lots of walking to do!

Retreat itself is about 2km from town in the bush which is great for kiwi spotting and some good R & R. Clean, tidy and spacious rooms with good WiFi. Great place so check it out!

Stayed 3 nights - very peaceful and comfortable accomodation. Lovely views and beach just below. Fiona picked us up and explained the apartment and gave ideas for walks. She was most helpful and friendly. Apartment well equipped too. Would def come back here.

Met at the ferry by Fiona (legend) and transported to the unit. Comfortable clean and with everything you need including car. Everything well explained by Fiona and the place is close enough to walk to the township.
Perfect bolt hole for your stay.

Fiona who met us at the ferry set the tone for a delightful trip to Stewart Island. She offered us a small orientation and it was an informative and fun way to get our bearings. The apartment was warm and beds comfy and it was homely. Fiona also gave us great ideas for walks which we thoroughly enjoyed too.
