    Great studio and ideal for a couple looking for a place to relax and explore the region. The studio was in immaculate condition with everything that you need and a great outdoor area. Beach is across the road and a short walk to the local village. Very friendly hosts tops it off.

  • We stayed over Labour Wknd

    We stayed over Labour Wknd. We had a fantastic & relaxing time here - Chris & Chrissie made us feel so welcome. We had some great chats with them about rugby & the local area. The location was perfect, so close to the beach. The bach was lovely - clean & bright with a great bbq area. Chris even brought us over some freshly caught fish for us for dinner. We really can't fault anything & would totally recommend it to anyone looking to stay. Thanks Nick & Ash

    Thank you for your awesome comments. I am so pleased that you had an enjoyable and relaxing visit with us. We love sharing both our piece of paradise and any produce that we are fortunate to catch or procure from our "Dixie Chicks", chickens or the garden. See you again.

  • We just love staying at the Palms Retreat in Kuaotunu

    We just love staying at the Palms Retreat in Kuaotunu. We have some history in the area, 40 to 50 years ago and really enjoy becoming re-acquainted, after only fleeting visits for the last 35 years. Love the beautiful quiet beaches, for long walks, observing the wildlife and the scenery. This was our second visit and we are booking again for early December.
