For one night of our honeymoon, my wife and I stayed at Retiro Park Lodge and our experience there was amazing. The two owners, Victor and Robbert, could not have been more friendly, welcoming and helpful. They are great with providing recommendations and are sincerely interested in making sure your stay is enjoyable. We stayed in the Barn room, which... More

I totally agree with Jonahand Ruthie who has written a review before me. It is just a magical place and great hospitality. You feel that you are in a fairy tale staying with your best friends! We were unable to have dinner there but the breakfast was great. Excellent food in the charming, unique breakfast room overlooking the big beautiful... More

Retiro Park lodge is one of the most beautiful, most charming places I've ever stayed! The place is immaculately taken care of down to the tiniest detail! Beautiful gardens, lily pads in a stream, a quaint tree house, vineyards, a romantic conservatory (green house), grapes hanging from the pergola over the patios, and more. You almost feel like you've entered... More

This has been one of our best travel experiences ever and we have traveled all over the world. The lodge is located in a beautiful 90 acre farm with vineyards, alpacas, ponies, etc. They also have their own small winery and the hosts are very generous with their wine and it's delicious. The room was very large, comfortable and beautifully... More

The hosts, Victor and Robbert, made our stay the most relaxing part of our 3 week visit to New Zealand. The room was beautiful, the breakfasts were wonderful and we added a dinner and it was the best food we had in New Zealand. (We tend to stay away from fancy restaurants) It was so relaxing to sit by the... More

Our three weeks motorbike holiday through New Zealand we had planned with the assistance of Tripadviser. We picked our daily distances what we wanted to drive and choose a place to sleep or a restaurant via the reviews of Tripadviser. The first night on the Southern island we had chosen Retiro Park Lodge This was a good choice which we... More

We stayed here our last two nights in NZ. While out of town (15 min), the estate and accommodations are world class. The property is quite charming and inviting. Victor's breakfast is delicious and the setting unreal. Recommend the Barn room if a couple. Victor and Robert were wonderful hosts taking care of our every need.

We walked out of the bush on December 31 from a muddy and wet five-day hike on the Travers Sabine into luxury at Retiro Park Lodge. Robert and Victor are the perfect hosts! They made us a superb New Years Eve three-course dinner - we sampled their beautiful selection of wines - and we felt like we'd just caught up... More

Victor and Robbert are two of the best hosts I have ever met. Everything was superb. The breakfast was wonderful, so much food and we were able to enjoy it in their cute, well maintained conservatory. They also gave us a wonderul tour of the property where we were able to learn about the vines and play with the animals.... More

What a wonderful place. Easily the best guesthouse we have ever stayed in anywhere! My kind of countryside with green rolling hills and trees surrounding the venue. Quaint little farm with lamas and alpacas to add to charm. Robbert and Victor are lovely genuine hosts with an easy going manner that makes it a delight to share their home with... More
