With complete privacy and exclusive use of Cascade Creek Retreat and no other houses within 4kms, it is the perfect getaway for couples or up to six people. Cascade Creek Retreat, is situated with 180 degree views of bush on a large award winning working sheep and beef farm. It boasts abundant native birdlife from the very front door, numerous walking tracks through bush and over rolling farmlands and no other people or dwellings for kilometres. Romantic and secluded for couples for a special occasion and excellent for friends and families to really getaway from it all, Cascade Creek Retreat has two VERY comfortable superking beds which can be split into king singles as well as a pull down 'wall' queen size bed which arguably is in the best spot in the place - looking out through the double french doors to the superb view while still lying in bed in front of the open fire! A mezzanine floor and a downstairs bedroom allows everyone to have their own space along with complimentary amenities and luxury bathrobes to really enjoy 'a little taste of luxury in a little slice of paradise'. A small kitchen with gas oven and microwave allows guests to be completely self contained, but if looking for a real break, Cascade Creek Retreat also offers meal options, a private chef and gourmet baskets for guests complete ease during their stay. Environmentally friendly, Cascade Creek Retreat is completely solar powered and hydro powered off the grid with gas for cooking and hot water. In the building of the Retreat, as many recycled and second hand quality material were utilised and the result is a unique, rustic beautiful ' log cabin'. Outside, a large deck sits above the valley and its kanuka bush tracks, creeks and winding waterfalls. A bird feeder is in constant use, making native bird viewing a real treat. Just 10 minutes off the southern scenic route, Cascade Creek is wheel chair friendly and designed to fit with the environment. A stay at Cascade Creek Retreat allows guests to really interact with nature as opposed to just observing from a distance... and the ability to do this while surrounded by complete luxury. More
