Just what it says...a retreat. A simply glorious, quiet location to use as a home base after attending an international business conference in Auckland and while touring the northern end of the country. The view from our suite was incredible; islands and turquoise water that was framed by a fuchsia bougainvillea blooming on the deck. I reveled in the bathroom. The best one I encountered in our three-week business trip which also included Texas and Arizona. So enjoyed Carrie and Richard's company. Carrie is an amazing cook! Everything she made was delicious and perfect. Contrary to the previous reviewer, we were encouraged to use the fridge in our living area and, oh my!, snacked there with no repercussions. We received much good sight-seeing advice from them, as well as shopping and dining tips. Be real! This is New Zealand...one has to expect to travel distances to get to restaurants and grocery stores. And as far as the cost, I found everything pricey during our trip -- certainly much more expensive than it was ten years ago. The bottom line is that I would love a return visit to Cavalli Beach House Retreat.
