Hereweka Garden Retreat was our fourth stop on the South Island during our trip around New Zealand. It is set in the most stunning location on the Otago Peninsula. It is also in a great location for visiting the various attractions on the Peninsula. During our stay, we were lucky enough to see a wonderful array of wildlife. This included; albatross, penguins, kingfishers, spoonbills, birds of prey and much, much more. The cottage is very well appointed and the glass shower deserves particular mention. Anna and Peter were lovely hosts. This is one of the most relaxing places we have ever stayed and would have no hesitation in recommending it as a wonderful place to stay if you are looking to totally relax and unwind.
