Kakaia Retreat was spacious, modern and a lovely place to spend a holiday. The setting is quiet and relaxing, yet you are only a 10 minute walk to the main road. Ngamata was very helpful when we had questions. I would highly recommend this place...More

About the neighbourhood
Relax feel calm is exactly what you do here, mum will leave continental breakfast on arrival in the fridge if arriving in the late hours so you'll have breakfast sorted when you wake. The mountain range views on the deck have been the most talked about from all guests. Minutes away from Famous Muri beach lagoon as most guests hire cars or scooters.
Getting around
We recommend all of our guests to hire a scooter or car whilst your here as you can get a lot more done and the house is 800m down Avanna Valley so great having transport.
