Review of Kaka Retreat

Fantastic. Nice and close to town. Walk is a pleasant one. Accommodation good. Good sized unit with two double beds (very comfortable!!!), kitchenette, couple of chairs. Bathroom has amazing shower much appreciated after day out walking. Warm and snug in June with radiator heating. Lovely site with own covered deck, good privacy, some garden/bush. Totally recommended this accommodation. Decor & furnishings are high standard too.
Staff friendly and so helpful. Courtesy transfers to/from accomodation on arrival.
and departure too.
The big city accommodations have some lessons to learn from Kaka Retreat!

        Really nice, clean and spacious. Free pick up from ferry (although the 400m wouldn't be hardship either 😊). Very comfy bed, nice host. The little grey cat from the neighbour is a very friendly ambassador of Stewart Island 😊🐾 Thank you for a really enjoyable stay.

        This is just a few minute walk from the harbor. The small house was awesome and we had 3 bedrooms and a beautiful kitchen. The owner was great and answered all our questions. I will tell you that there are some pretty steep hills on the island. We enjoyed the exercise, but if you are going there and have a difficult time walking up a steep hill. Then just arrange a transport to the hotel. We saw some people going to a different hotel struggling up the steep short hill. The hotel feels like you are all alone, and it is really beautiful. We would recommend, and are very glad we stayed here. We will be back. Remember there is only one or two places to eat on the island, so the kitchen and small shop in the harbor is a real bonus.

        Clean and totally functional but poorly maintained needs paint and carpet that’s not patched
        Way overpriced I wouldn’t pay anymore than $150 an night at best here.
        Helpful staff who did offer us a ride to Oban flight base and a lovely setting as well

        Very comfortable and well appointed lodgings within easy walking distance of downtown🤣. The transport service to and from the airport drop off was appreciated. BBQ left a little to be desired wasn’t working properly and not the cleanest other than than good honest accommodation.

        We enjoyed staying here. Airport transfers provided, nice and clean rooms. Easy check in process. About 5 min walk from town so close enough still to town but far enough to just hear the birds.
        We stayed in a self contained room with 2x double/queen beds. Very clean. Enjoyable stay. Would stay here again.

        Room tip: Airport/ Ferry shuttle provided on arrival and departure. Just let them know of times and dates. Central location, easy walking. Close to town.
