From the moment we arrived at Hereweka Retreat, my daughter and I felt the magic. This is a oasis within an oasis That is the Otago Peninsula. The views from every window, even the shower!! Are astonishing. It is perfectly appointed, cozy and the breakfast trays are perfect. Our favorite place on our whole 2 week trip to New Zealand.

Thank you for taking the time to review our Retreat. We really appreciate it. I'm sorry that you did not receive the complimentary bottle of wine. If we had realized that you had found us via TripAdvisor there certainly would have been one waiting for you. I can see it is not very clear from the TripAdvisor site that what...

What can I saw about this truly wonderful retreat. Anne and Peter have created a lovely place to stay with all mod cons and lovely personal touches. Out on the Otago Pensinula and within a 5 minute drive of one of the most beautiful beaches in the South Island we could have stayed for many more nights. Anne's freshly baked...

We had a wonderful and relaxing stay at Hereweka for our wedding anniversary - the accommodation was peaceful and tidy and the hosts were very friendly - but also gave us lots of space and time to relax and enjoy the beautiful surrounds. We chose to have a meal cooked for us by Danielle - Chef at home, and this...

A great time. Our own cottage in seclusion with a magnificent Otago view. Very comfortable, neat design, and roomy cottage. Our hosts provided all the makings for a wonderful breakfast that we cooked. Highly recommended.

We spent 3 nights here over new year. Incredibly comfortable, fabulous shower, and a very generous breakfast pack with offers from Peter and Anna to replenish supplies of eggs, bread and spreads as they ran out. As a nervous driver the road up to Hereweka was a bit daunting at first - it is a steep dirt track, but don't...

This is a fantastic place for a couple to stay and relax on the Dunedin Peninsular. Downstairs is the lounge, bathroom and kitchen. Upstairs is the large bedroom. The bathroom is very novel as the wall of the shower is a glass sliding door which has no covering so you shower looking out across the bush to Hoopers Inlet. The...
