“5 days in Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Absolutely superb house in a stunning location. Very modern and clean with all mod cons and more.. Swimming pool, tennis court, kayaks, bikes, fishing, superb tele(s), barbecue and again more..

The owners, Craig and Patricia are really helpful and knowledgeable re the area, beaches, routes, good local food.

We were easily able to get to Hot water beach and Cathedral cove (Narnia) and had just a really relaxing few days on quite a hectic schedule.

We cannot recommend it highly enough

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.

We stayed 3 nights during January 2012. The views and location are really amazing. The 2 bedroom apartment we had was spacious and well equipped. Provisions were more than we expected, Craig and Patricia are very helpful. We stayed here as one stop on a long trip in New Zealand, it was really a fantastic place to stay and we will most certainly be back. Many thanks to Patricia and Craig, we look forward to next time and only hope to make our stay longer.

We have no hesitation in giving this our highest recommendation to anyone considering staying here.

There are not enough superlatives to describe Peninsula Waterfront Retreat!

We booked this gorgeous place for just 3 days together with family from Australia and travelled there from Rotarua. It was everything we hoped it would be, and more besides! We had the suite upstairs and our Son and family were in the 2 bedroom apartment downstairs.

Our suite was fabulous with a large extremely comfortable bed, a great en-suite, two balconies with lovely views and a comfy sofa. Downstairs the family apartment was also luxurious and very spacious with French doors opening out onto an extensive lawn which led right down to the water’s edge. The kitchen area was well equipped and there was also an excellent barbecue for our use. Breakfast supplies were provided and topped up when necessary. We were all more than comfortable, so much so, that unusually we decided not go out to eat for two of the nights but instead had a barbecue and also a take-away from nearby Whangamata.

The internal configuration was perfect for us as a family but would also be equally good for individual bookings as neither infringe on the privacy of the other. They share the same very large entrance hall (the owners use a different entrance) but from there on are completely separate.

Externally no plush hotel could better the facilities at Peninsula and our teenage grandsons revelled in the mountain bikes, the kayaks, the tennis courts, the pool etc etc. The grounds of Peninsula are gorgeous with beautiful views at every turn; Chris and Trish are wonderful hosts, helpful and friendly without being intrusive, in fact the place is just perfect. Don’t think about it just book and try to allocate more than the three days we had!
