The Peninsula Retreat was beautiful and had everything one could ask for. Trish does an excellent job of hosting and couldn't have been more helpful with advice for sightseeing the area. We enjoyed the pool after a long day of traveling and decided to eat in as the view outside our doors was too good to leave! Thank you, Trish... More

I was fortunate enough to have been taken to Penisula waterfront retreat by my partner. Craig and Trish treated us like rock stars and our stay was perfect. Their quality of service and attention to detail was second to none and I would not hesitate to stay again. Location Devine. Thank you Craig and Trish

We stayed for four nights while in Whangamata for work. The place was beautiful and so comfortable. We really enjoyed coming back after long days and being able to relax by the pool and cook delicious BBQ meals. Also really loved the near by tracks for running, and the mountain bikes provided us with a great morning ride along the... More

We had 5 nights at the Peninsula Retreat. It is a beautiful location, gorgeous grounds, and lovely, comfortable accommodation. The welcome we had from Craig and Patricia was outstanding - nothing was a problem. We would definately recommend this property to others.
