Ali & Steve have thought of everything here to give their guests the perfect break. They are very generous in their hospitality, not least with their time. They obviously feel so much pleasure when their guests are moved, as we were, by the beauty and tranquillity of their home. It is a pleasant 15 minute walk to the river with a choice of access nearby and more a short drive away. We spent an idyllic afternoon along the Hurunui Gorge which Ali & Steve organised for us. It may feel like an effort, but the starlight bath with frog chorus is absolutely worth it and is the most luxurious of many special touches in a very comfortable, spacious and well equipped apartment. Our winter special included a hearty, tasty soup and the breakfast provisions with homemade muesli & bread set us up each day.
Take in the view from the deck with a glass of wine in your hand, and relax away your cares.

Previous emails from Ali and Steve at Hurunui River Retreat had made us feel at home and welcome but turning the key in the lovely Tussock Cottage transformed our expectations. The cottage is modern, tastefully furnished and extremely well appointed. The views and tranquillity have to be experienced to be described and it is the perfect spot to read, write or paint with constantly changing light. Our hosts were a delight leaving provisions and a welcoming note. We made friends with the resident sheep and alpacas but otherwise felt that we had this magical spot to ourselves. We were just sad that we had so few days to spend at Hurunui but I am sure we will be back. Ursula and David Starkie
