Best place we stayed in New Zealand - 28th Jan 2013

Our latest review has encapsulated what Hereweka Garden Retreat is all about!!
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 12 January 2013

This place is heaven on earth! We stayed for (unfortunately only) two nights over New Years Eve. The cottage is quite new and located in a beautiful setting overlooking Hooper's Inlet on the Otago Peninsula. The cottage has a deck, which is perfect for breakfast (home made bread and jam, fresh organic milk and eggs). The deck can also be accessed through the shower (!) - open the door and you get the feeling you're showering in the garden. The fireplace, the coffee machine (porta filter and not just some instant coffee like in most other places) and esp. the shower and the very comfortable bed make this lodge the best place we stayed in while touring New Zealand.
The hosts Anna and Peter were always very helpful and even supplied us with herbs and salad from their garden as well as with tips for the area and binoculars when we went to see the penguins. The garden itself is one of a kind and we wish we had more time at the retreat to explore it. If you want to see penguins, sea lions and albatross on the Otago Peninsula, this is the perfect place to stay since it's only a ten minutes drive to all the places. After spending days with busloads of tourists on the West Coast, finding this place to relax was the best thing that could have happened to us!

Stayed December 2012, travelled as a couple
