5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2009

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.
