“a little taste of luxury in a little slice of paradise”
Reviewed 14 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Staying 3 nights in the lovely cabin truly is the high light of our travel to NZ. The moment i stepped on the deck of the cabin i felt like everything i saw from the picture before i made the reservation became real and whats even better is i could finally experience the idea of "home away from home". its definitely hands down the best place i have ever stayed.
What we never expected is the owner came by with a plate of home made cookie to see if we were comfortable and warm as it snowed in the morning. i am saying could you guys be any more thoughtful for your guests?
I'd love to come back to the lovely cabin one day. The only thing i am hoping is it can be longer than 3 nights. Thank you Janene and Dave you really made our travel wonderful.

Thank you for your lovely review. Cascade Creek Retreat is such a wonderful place to enjoy a romantic getaway, especially something as special as your 1st Anniversary. The combination you mentioned of the stunning views, absolute privacy, large roaring open fire and delicious options of our Chefs gourmet baskets as well as the unique “Dinner In Experience” make for such a memorable special experience. What a wonderful idea to have started a tradition for your both to come back and enjoy everything Cascade Creek Retreat has to offer every year! We look forward to having you stay again next year.

“The solitude and tranquility were unbeatable”
Reviewed 13 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

An wonderfully secluded place to get away from everything for a while. The facilities were impeccable, and the special touches around the cabin were gorgeous - especially the home-knitted slippers. The birdsong was absolutely beautiful. The starlit outdoor bath topped it off! We honestly didn't want to leave!

We are so pleased you enjoyed your time at Cascade Creek Retreat! Once you arrive, it is a very easy place to truly relax and turn off from the rest of the world… but it is very hard to leave again!! The lovely native bush surrounding the Retreat is a haven for the birdsong you mentioned, and it is such a treat to hear and see the beautiful native birds so close by. The outdoor baths are always popular with our guests and with the total privacy and serenity that Cascade Creek Retreat offers, you are able to enjoy them undisturbed and truly take in the beautiful surrounds. We are very happy you enjoyed your time away at Cascade Creek and the opportunity to ‘get away from it all’ for a while.

“my most favourite place on earth”

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 1 March 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.
