The cottage and it's setting in the gardens with garden as well as sea and country outlook is wonderful and the design of the cottage imaginative making maximum use of the possibilities. This together with the bird song and the gentle and generous hospitality of Peter and Anna makes for a wonderful stay. Peter's tour of the garden was informative...

We spent one night here after our wedding and were incredibly well looked after. They knew we would be in late so the fire was lit and the room was warm! The food was lovely and service was fantastic! Stunning views were also a highlight. You would struggle to find a better place to stay!

We stayed at Hereweka Retreat whilst visiting Dunedin for the rugby. To be honest, we stumbled across it as there was no accommodation left in town. Well, when we next return to Dunedin, I would not hesitate to stay at Hereweka rather than in town. Beautifully appointed one bedroom house with a log burner to keep the place toasty. Beautiful...

We enjoyed a 2 night stay at the Garden Retreat. Definitely a garden where flora and fauna abound that attract NZ birds.Their songs are a delight and add much to the Retreat experience. Anna was generous with vegetables from her garden for our dinner salad and fresh eggs for the morning breakfast along with homemade bread and jelly. The accommodation...

We spent two weeks traveling in New Zealand and this was probably the best spot we stayed (and we loved our whole trip). It's such a gorgeous location with wonderful views, and the house itself is fresh, clean and has everything you need. The owners' garden is spectacular, and lovely to wander around. We hope to come back here for...

We enjoyed a wonderful weekend in beautiful surroundings. Warm and modern, with amazing deck areas to enjoy the garden, birdsong, native bush and stunning views. The shower with an opening onto the deck deserves a special mention. It's fantastic! The organic breakfast was perfect. The warm welcome and fond farewell bookended a brilliant weekend escape.

My partner and I have traveled nearly the entire country of New Zealand from North to South and back again and this is certainly one of our favorite places, if not our absolute favorite.

My husband and I loved staying at the Hereweka Retreat. The house has a gorgeous view over a valley with in the far bit the ocean and a bay. Additionally, you can shower with the window right open (without any watching you) and take in the nature. The B&B has a very comfortable bed upstairs with a sitting/dinning and kitchen...
