Such a treat to have this kind of accommodation in NZ. We arrived to an epic sunset! Unfortunately for the rest of the time the weather didn't play ball but the house is super cosy, filled with plenty of books, games and baking ingredients to keep you entertained - along with the hot tub! The hosts are great! Thanks so much for sharing Peak View with us Natalia and Carl.

Thank you so much Janelle, it was a pleasure having you.

Working holiday sweet spot

2nd time guest - and the views were again unbeatable! Stayed late spring last time, so it was awesome to experience a different time of year in autumn. The sunrises and sunsets were to die for and it was the best place to be staying and working during the school holidays and one of my busiest times of the year. I would highly recommend a 3+ night stay if you are thinking about it, you won't regret it! To be able to wake up to the pinky haze across the sea and to watch the sun set on the islands close by, is just magical. There is a great wee space that my son used too which was great. The hot tub is amazing to unwind at the end of the day and the vibe is relaxing no matter the weather. Thanks for having us Nat and Carl :)

Thank you so much Lisa, it was so great to have you both back again.

My friend Anne and I were so lucky to win 3 nights staying here and we enjoyed every minute. It was stunningly beautiful and so peaceful. Natalia and Carl made us so welcome and stoked up the hot tub for us every night! It is so handy to Nelson and there is so much to do. Thanks again for a great stay.

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.
