This lodge is well equipped, modern and clean. The home grown, home made, organic breakfast was a real treat. The large patio doors opened to serene views all around. The owners allow you to walk through their wonderful gardens that they have developed within the restored native bush. It made for an inspirational writer's retreat.

Hereweka Garden Retreat has everything you need, a very comfortable stand alone cottage nestled in the corner of an amazing garden. The kitchen is well equipped, yummy breakfast provided, super comfy bed and bathroom with a view. The hosts here are very welcoming and generous with their knowledge on local walks, all things gardening and even cooking. We loved our stay here and highly recommend it.

We actually spent 6 weeks here as we ended up in lockdown. We were originally meant to be staying 3 nights but we arrived just before lockdown was announced & Anna & Peter very kindly offered that we could stay there. It is a truly amazing place & we have the most lovely memories that we will treasure for ever. It’s a gorgeous little “chalet” in the middle of nowhere just perfect for relaxing, walking, enjoying the local wildlife & sightseeing. The many local beaches are picture perfect. Of course out of lockdown it’s a perfect base for exploring lots of local towns & experiencing all that the area has to offer. The extensive balconies were perfect for my lockdown yoga & pilates. Stunning views over the surrounding hills & inlet. Anna & Peter are lovely hosts & looked after us so well. Anna is a great cook & her breakfast items are delicious. They have an extensive organic fruit & vegetable garden which is lovely to visit & the main garden is a true delight. There are kilometres of bush trails to explore & a lovely garden full of amazing trees, shrubs & flowers. Just beautiful! We were sad to leave & will definitely return. It’s a very special place. Thank you Anna & Peter.

Nice spot to get away from it all and only 30mins back into Dunedin. Hosts are very nice, made sure we had everything we wanted and let us know about the area. Went for a walk up through the property to the top of the hill, lovely gardens and regenerated native forest. The unit has everything you need, fully equipped kitchen and pantry stocked with breakfast including fresh eggs and preserves. Comfy bed, great indoor/outdoor shower. Definitely recommend this place for a visit. Well worth it.
