    We had a most relaxing time at Korari Retreat. We stayed three nights, but could easily have forgotten to leave and still be there weeks later. :) With their subtropical vegetation, the well-tended grounds are peaceful and welcoming. Even the neighbours made us feel welcome. Across the road there is a stile leading to the beach, by the mouth of the Hokianga harbour -- a beautiful sight. We highly recommend Jan's studio to those looking for a peaceful retreat.
