Bach or holiday home | Kaikoura Township | #7612
Although purpose built early 2000 at Homewood Hill, a small lifestyle farm as an Art Gallery/ Studio, what is now the Artists Retreat had an olde world feel immediately.
Built to resemble an early colonial wooden church and using recycled materials where possible, the building had character and a great feeling straight away.
In Dec. 2008, we moved the gallery/studio to another "old" building on our property and this little "old" building started a new life. We offer good, clean, fully self contained affordable holiday accommodation with stunning views,peace & privacy.The Artists Retreat is solely yours for the duration of your stay.
Perched on a hill top, a few minutes north of Kaikoura,the Artists Retreat is just off, but easily accessible from the main highway in a rural setting with never ending views.
These stunning views over farmlands from the mountains to the sea will take your breath away. Wake up to bird song, including Tuis and Bellbirds, and the distant sound of the ocean.Whilst only a few minutes north of Kaikoura,
The Artists Retreat is private and peaceful.Ideal for 1 or 2 couples traveling together or a family.Honeymooners would love staying here too.
We have farm animal pets that have quirky personalities and love to be patted, scratched and hand fed.
Photographers will love the light & especially the fantastic sunsets

Stunning location between snow-capped mountains and the sea, just unbelievably beautiful. The house was much larger than I needed but cozy upstairs with high wood-beamed ceilings, a balcony, fully-provided kitchen, and a very comfortable bed. I'd love to come back with family and use all the space (and kids would love the animals--as did I, to be honest), but I'd come back alone again in a second as well.
