Our stay in Miles and Katrina's rental home was wonderful to say the least. They are two of the kindest people you would ever wish to meet. Katrina brought a special clothes dryer for us to use for our stay since they do not have electric dryers. She also had a fruit bowl for us when we arrived which was so nice with fruit from their gardens. One day she also came with a beautiful gardenia flower she picked especially for me. We had the best day when Ray and Miles and others worked to do a boat haul out, this was such a fun day!!! We also were able to enjoy time with them just visiting and getting to know them better. Another highlight was being able to join them in church before we left. Miles and Steve and Patrick were very entertaining with their music and singing :) We have some of the video from this we can watch from time to time.The home was very comfortable with a beautiful view of the water from the living/bedroom areas. Ray loved being able to hand feed the chickens, and I enjoyed wandering the property looking at the pretty trees and flowers. When we would go into Russell to shop and sightsee the shop owners would ask where we were from and where we were staying. They all had great things to say about both Katrina and Miles which was so nice. They were quick to tell us how involved they have been in the community and they called Miles, "smiling Miles".The sad part about our stay in their home was that we finally had to leave. We only wish they will be able to one day come to our area/home so we can again get together. Anyone that stays here can not help but have a lovely time, we certainly recommend them and their home. Such memories----
Excellent relaxed three day stay.
The view and sunset were lovely as was the beach. The home was luxurious and we enjoyed all the facilities as we cooked for ourselves.
Waikare Retreat..Stunning Views..relaxing
This is a great place to spend several days relaxing with the most magnificent views.
The house was spotless and had everything we needed...short drive to Kauri forest is a must.. very comfy bed and the birds abound.. even had a Weka walk across the deck one morning..the stroll down the driveway to the waters edge well worth it to watch the shore birds diving and feeding..Russell is only a few minutes down the road and it has some great places to eat..and to buy supplies.
Would go back to Waikare Retreat in a heartbeat......thanks Katrina and Miles and Larissa who was very helpful....cheers
Place to relax
Great little spot for relaxing and unwinding with amazing views. Only a 10 minute drive into Russell and the car ferry. Unit has a well equipped kitchen, clean and tidy. Was great having access to the kayaks and the private beach. Only gripe would be that it was difficult to get clothes dry without a dryer or clothes horse.
Beautiful home - wonderful views!
We loved our time at the Waikare Retreat! Katrina and Miles were such gracious and generous hosts - they made us feel so welcome. (And, were kind enough to let us use their hot tub!) It's a beautiful home with amazing views - we would stay again!
Relaxing and Peaceful
Had a relaxing, peaceful stay, nice and spacious. Enjoyed a Kayak in the Inlet and spa.
