For a truly luxurious, executive atmosphere, Seascape Retreat Taranaki is the place for your relaxing holiday, conference, team building retreat, wedding or function.

Located twelve minutes from New Plymouth Airport, twenty minutes from New Plymouth CBD and five minutes from Waitara, Urenui and Waiau Estate. This is a one of a kind designer home, with a heated pool over looking the ocean. Can seat 16 plus for dining.

Open up the large glass sliding doors to experience indoor/outdoor living and dining on the ocean front in the summer, or enjoy the views from the comfort of the fire place in the winter. Further, you can savour the rural and Mountain view on the other side of the house every time you walk down the spacious hall (gallery) to your gorgeous master suite.

Includes a large flat screen T.V and Dual Play DVD in the living area and T.Vs in each of the three bedrooms. Sky, WiFi and a land line for local calls are also supplied.

While this breathtaking home is a great escape all on it's own, with only a short stroll to the sea, there is also the opportunity to enjoy some of Taranaki's great attractions nearby. These include fabulous restaurants, beautiful beaches and world class surf breaks, a coastal walkway expanding ten kilometres -perfect for walking, jogging, biking and skating. On top of these is of course the majestic Mount Taranaki, with hiking and seasonal skiing available. Pukekura Park and various zoos, wildlife parks and gardens make a great day out all year round. Also check out the latest live productions happening and book in for the annual WOMAD (World of Music and Dance).

If you'd prefer to dine in and make the most of this glorious retreat, an in home dining experience is available for 'tailor made menu' cooking and service all without having to leave the house (please enquire in advance).

There are several seating/living areas to enjoy some time out, as well as desks in both the den/third bedroom and the master suite.

  • This place really is located in the most tranquil setting

    This place really is located in the most tranquil setting. Vast ocean views and house design, were both phenomenal. Master suite is breath taking but would be delighted with any of the rooms as all lovely with ocean views. House immaculate, manager friendly and helpful. We will be back but will be bringing two other couples to enjoy this peace of paradise. Thanks again for such an amazing experience.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Sour grapes as was charged for damage. Working oven, toaster and microwave and fly spray. Nothing wrong with sky but instructions not followed. Heated pool for summer conditions, polished conrete floors which tend to crack slightly (sorry about that marissa), firewood not provided in summer. Were told to use telescope if they knew how, as is delicate. Owner has some food in freezer as it is his place. Air con set already but they were told to call/text with any issues. 1 temperarily stained mat.

  • Horrible experience, found dead mouse in the kitchen and got a reply...

    Horrible experience, found dead mouse in the kitchen and got a reply "it's only just a dead mouse" stepped on dog shit on the back door of course the blames goes to the neighbors dog. we spend the whole morning done the cleaning after only spend 2 nights there and is still not upto theirs standard, even we paid extra cleaning fee in advance. just be careful try not to do anything in the house, don't expect a refund for the bond they will use any excuses to not refund you the money!

    Owner/manager responds:

    We take pride in the cleanliness of seascape and we were disappointed and appologetic about the mouse found in an unused cupboard in the living area and dog dropping by driveway (not by house) offering a partial refund. However the guests had only paid for two but was obvious they had extras -all 3 plus beds used for one thing. They stole 2 crayfish and more out of the freezer and didnt do their dishes which is the only cleaning requirement of our guests. They said they loved it until had up..
