Absolutely one of the most beautiful islands I have stepped foot on. The Heartsong retreat is perfect for those people looking for peace and quiet, romance, and serenity. My fiancé and I stayed here in January 2014 in a smaller cottage that was the epitome of shabby chic, with french doors that opened at the foot of the bed so... More

In need of some "quiet" time I spent a glorious evening and morning here. It's hard to explain how truly wonderful this place is - other reviews probably do it more justice. It was peaceful, tranquil, beautiful, warm and inviting. The spa under the stars is amazing and incredibly relaxing. Trisha was the perfect host - there when you needed... More

Prerequiste - a cosy cottage by the sea, with a fireplace and a mooring. And maybe a spa or outdoor bath.....and some views.... Well, I could not believe I could actually find all of this and much more at Heartsong retreat! Nestled in the quaint and artistic community of Omiha, Rocky Bay you are

What a beautiful setting tucked away with a private beach and sumptuous lodging. We had an amazing time with Trisha, who was the consummate hostess and were able to completely disconnect and enjoy our surroundings. We can't wait to go back!

What an amazing weekend away we had!! Before we arrived, it was evident in Trish's emails that she was an accommodating and pleasant person to deal with. What we arrived to was picturesque! We initially were supposed to stay in the Keraru Suite however we were offered an upgrade to the Cottage which was more than we could have hoped... More

Probably the best way to describe this place is to give a brief summary of our first day at Heartsong. Woke to the sounds of Tuis (native birds) in the trees outside, wandered down to the beach for a swim, swung by the hot pool on the way back to the cottage, enjoyed a delicious breakfast which included many local...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights. We loved the location directly off the beach, access to kayaks, spa pool and great breakfast sitting out on our patio. We stayed in the Nikau room which is under the main house but has a patio entrance making it very private. There's also space for a car which is a... More

I found the cottage at Heartsong by Google searching for something very specific for our wedding night - we wanted classic, rustic, private and homely. When I found the cottage I was extremely excited as it fit the vision perfectly. I then found the tripadvisor reviews and these made me even more confident that this was the right place for... More

My husband and I stayed here on our wedding night and it was the most perfect place to top off a magical weekend we will never forget. We felt like we were in our own little hideaway and the atmosphere of the place left us relaxed and rejuvenated. Trisha, our host, was delightful. Breakfast was lovely, sitting out in a... More
