If you love nature, warm hospitality, fantastic views, longs walks, and space, this place is perfect for you. We had a wonderful time here. Our hosts were lovely and will spend as much or as little time as you prefer. Walking around their 1000+ acre property is a rare experience. We can not wait to come back and go for more walks. Our girls loved the loft. Best place ever was their quote. We loved the view from the veranda. They also recommended a wonderful local cafe, The HuHu. Easily, our best dinner out in New Zealand. There is also a lovely night walk where you can see the glow worms up close. All around, wonderful experience.
After our incredible honeymoon in New Zealand, this was the first place that my wife and I had to rave about, because Rock Retreat and Waitomo truly blew us away and set the tone for the three amazing weeks that followed. We were so fortunate to have discovered this hidden gem, which strikes the PERFECT balance between being remote, romantic and picturesque while at the same time being so close to all kinds of mind-blowing activities and fun things to do. THANK YOU Biddy and Rich (and Hazel and Fern and Tomnas the cat!) for being so welcoming and helpful during our stay. We still can't believe that you guys actually LIVE in such an incredible place. When we think back to the moments that defined our honeymoon, the first image that pops in our heads is waking up on our first morning at Rock Retreat, seeing a completely pink sky through the windows, and walking out onto the porch overlooking the most beautiful hills we've ever seen. There's no place in the world like Rock Retreat, and we can't wait to find our way back some day! Hoping all is well and sending lots of love! xo, Dave & Amanda
