The resort is an incredible combination of luxury and wilderness. Its one of the most remote places I have ever stayed but the hosts are immeasurably great at thinking of your every need. the detail and love put into this place is quite incredible. You can feel it when you stay here and that alone makes the stay memorable. It truly is my favourite place.

Thank you for your wonderful review. As you aptly describe, it is a definite ‘off the beaten path’ experience- Cascade Creek is a hidden gem, which many of our guests describe as one of the many enjoyable and stand out aspects of the Retreat. We love ensuring our guests enjoy ‘home away from home’ experience… while also enjoying the rustic luxury that Cascade Creek Retreat offers. A truly unique place like no other, it is easy to become a ‘favourite place’ for guests… it really is a little taste of luxury in a little slice of paradise’… and it is still our favourite spot too!!

“Bliss”
Reviewed February 28, 2014 for a stay in October 2012

I stumbled across Cascade Creek Retreat when planning a trip to New Zealand with my husband in 2012. The property is an amazing log cabin in a secluded vista outside of Dunedin and was the perfect place to spend a couple of nights in the peace and quiet.

Dave and Janene were the perfect hosts, super friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Hope to return here in the future for another getaway.

Hi Sarah, It was a wonderful idea to spend a couple of days at Cascade Creek Retreat to enjoy some rest and relaxation after your wedding! With the walks you enjoyed leaving directly from the front door of the Retreat, and a steaming hot outdoor bath to soak in upon your return, it was great that you were able to be as active or relaxed as suited you during your time at Cascade Creek. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay at our "off the beaten track" 'little taste of luxury in a little slice of paradise' and the true Retreat that it is for this very special time of yours. We wish you all the very best for the future.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed February 1, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Such a special hideaway in the middle of the bush.

We spent our honeymoon here and it was just the best decision we could've made. Baths under the stars, bubbles on the deck, nothing but the birds chirping and the trees rustling. Beautiful.

There's no cellphone reception, but being forced to abandon my cellphone was a challenge I didn't realise I'd love as much as I did - I didn't want to turn it back on once we left!

Also - this is a great place for someone in a wheelchair. The shower is a wet area one, and they can supply a shower chair on request. There are no hand-rails by the toilet but they also supply a commode chair if you need one. There are ramps all over the house and, apart from the bedroom upstairs, the whole place is really accessible.

I also highly recommend getting the 'Dinner in' option - the woman who takes care of this, Kelly, is an absolute superstar and cooks better food than many restaurants I've been to. Definitely worth the extra splash!

Will definitely return to Cascade Retreat one day, but in the mean time, do yourself a favour and check it out!

Thank you Red and Helen for taking the time to share your experience of Cascade Creek Retreat. We are so pleased you had a wonderful honeymoon here and loved embracing the sense of our true "Retreat" - enjoying all beauty and serenity Cascade Creek has to offer without the distractions of technology. We take great joy in our guests enjoyment during their stay and are very pleased you found the Retreat so easily accessible and your needs were catered for during your time here. A great way to top off your honeymoon was to opt for the "Dinner In Experience" with our Chef Kelly - we are very happy you were able to experience this unique ( and delicious!) option and extremely pleased you both enjoyed it as much as Kelly enjoyed providing it for you : ) Congratulations again, it was super to meet you both and we hope to see you back at Cascade Creek Retreat in the future!

Hi Lisa, it is wonderful that you and your friends were able to enjoy Cascade Creek Retreat to see in the New Year. What a unique way to celebrate the start of 2014 in your own log cabin, overlooking a beautiful native bush valley from the large sunny deck you mentioned, with no other dwellings for many kilometres, and the beautiful open fire to roast marshmallows on at your leisure! We are very happy you were all able to enjoy the nature and self contained facilities to cook yourselves a lovely meal and are pleased you enjoyed the little treats we left for you upon your arrival and self check in. While summer is wonderful to spend time at the Retreat, you are absolutely right - winter is just as nice and you can fall asleep on the pull down Queen wall bed in front of the warm, crackling open fire if you choose! Very romantic indeed. Hopefully you might be able to return again in winter and enjoy this experience also one day.
