The rating system of AirBnB is not adequate to rate this amazing experience. Out of this world accommodation is only half the story. While the place itself is so magical & jaw dropping, it is only outpaced by the truly inspiring hosts Natalia & Carl who are so invested in making each and every stay (of their guests) PERFECT & BEYOND. This experience is something money can’t buy. Once you step out of your car to be greeted by the hosts and step into the Retreat, your heart will sing! There’s no need for a long review. If you aren’t convinced by reading this review so far as well as many before this one, perhaps it’s not your time to be there. For those ones who can feel that there must be something special about this place, lucky you! Be nice to the hosts & you’ll be treated equally and more!

Truly Special

The Peak View Retreat is something truly special. We lucked out and had *perfect* weather for our stay. The views are better than the photos and the sunsets were dramatic every night. Even our last morning, when it started bucketing down with rain, and the wind picked up, was delightfully cozy. Internet was also great - we had to take some video calls for work and had zero issues. Natalia and Carl were super responsive and offered great local tips. If you’re on the fence about staying here, don’t give it a second thought. You won’t be disappointed!

Jaw dropping views

We were blown away by the incredible stunning 360 views. The house was huge and had everything we needed for a relaxing break away from the city. Our hosts Natalia and Carl were amazing we will be back for sure.

Hidden Gem

Peak View Retreat is a slice of mountainous paradise. Our jaws dropped when we entered the property for the first time as the entire place and view were such a feast for the eyes. Everything from the view to the interior was perfection. Natalia and Carl were warm and friendly hosts and have done such an amazing job on the retreat. I just left and I am already looking forward to the next time I'll be there. Would recommend this place in a heartbeat.

Early birthday getaway!

The drive to the Retreat was bumpy but real fun. When you catch a glimpse of the building it truly is a work of art. Once through the doors, your eyes are greeted with much delight. Such beauty and those 360° views are something else. We had, clouds, rain, full sun, and really enjoyed the huge deck. Overall very impressed. We most certainly have spread the word. Maybe one day we can get back for a visit. Thanks for being so friendly. Cheers again. :)

Wow we have just spent 3 nights at peakview retreat and we could not have been happier with our stay. We had a chef come up the first night to cook for us and the food was simply stunning. The views from the house are of the mountains and the sea and each window provides a spectacular view which changes with the light throughout the day. We were lucky to experience clear skies and the perfect view of the southern cross during the night, to clouds below us and a floating feeling the following evening, simply stunning no matter what the weather gave us. The house itself has beautiful luxurious linen on the beds, and a fabulous well appointed kitchen with everything included even a coffee maker. The hosts are amazing and happily go the extra mile. This place is 5 star plus but completely private for anyone looking for this. Highly recommend to all and so much better in person than the photos.

Stunning, unbeatable and breathtaking 🙌🏼

My son and I had the most amazing 5 night stay at Peak View Retreat. It felt like a world away from anything, we loved every minute and there was enough space to keep us both well occupied. The 4k walking track was exactly what I needed every day. The views were just stunning in every kind of weather, we were lucky enough to see some spectacular sunrises and sunsets and the pictures online don't do any justice to the beauty that meets your eyes in every direction. We will most definitely be back, I couldn't recommend Whangamoa any more highly and we have stayed all around the South Island. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay Nat and Carl, we are so grateful for everything. Having the hot tub prepared for us was marvelous and feeling at home was beautiful. What an incredible place to rest, reset and refresh :)
