Spent two days at the Huntaway Lodge for my wife's birthday. We rented the entire Retreat cabin, which consisted of two bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom, a living room, kitchen, and a deck overlooking the ocean. The setting is spectacular: in a garden on a hill with a view of the Cavalli Islands. The house is recently built and very tastefully furnished. In addition to the Retreat there is the main house, set just a short walk below, which contains three additional smaller units and a common lounge/dining room area.
Caroline is a wonderful, charming host and a terrific cook! We enjoyed many conversations over a glass of wine in the lounge. Our daughter really took to Caroline and enjoyed accompanying her on forays into the garden. She arranged for a masseuse to come in, as well as a bouquet of fresh flowers, which was waiting for my wife when we got there.
The meals were served on the terrace and consisted of the freshest local produce: seafood, lamb, fruits and vegetables, accompanied by NZ wines and locally-made cheeses. The merengue torte was to die for!
In all, we had an unforgettable time. We can definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an exquisite getaway in a spectacular, unspoiled setting.
