This luxury property at its private beach is just magic. We had our wedding anniversary there recently and were just spoilt and so relaxed. The rooms and furnishings are beautiful, the waterfront views are outstanding. The meals and wine were delicious and chef Hazel, excellent! The hosts Carrie and Richard are knowledgeable, friendly and extremely helpful to make sure your...

This was the best place we stayed in during our 5 week tour of New Zealand. The property itself is lovely, with perfectly appointed rooms and gorgeous views out to a private beach - just perfect for a swim before breakfast! And what a breakfast! Our hosts Carrie and Richard could not have been more welcoming or helpful and Hazel...

Arrived to this beautifully situated and appointed property. Totally private drive to a beautiful private beach. The hosts Carrie & Richard are excellent -welcoming, knowledgable of the area and indeed all of NZ - but discreet. The chef Hazel was excellent - breakfast (included) superb as was the evening dinner should you chose to eat at the property. The room...

We stayed at Cavalli Beach House Retreat for three nights, but would gladly have stayed twice as long. There is much to do, right at the Beach House (which is on the water and offers kayaks and hiking) as well as all the sights and activities in Bay of Islands and points north. The breakfasts and dinners were wonderful and...

Tucked away off the Mahinepua road near Wharangoa and overlooking one of the most scenic bays imaginable the Beach house was a great retreat. The rooms all have their own well appointed balconies and the views are spectacular. Don't expect wild nights at Cavalli. This is a very quiet out of the way place. Excellent three course dinner available daily...

My husband and I stayed 3 nights there for our honey moon and we had a lovely time. The localisation and views are just fantastic. You are almost alone in the bay and feel very relaxed. However, we didn't feel the luxury of a 5* hotel. Just as an example dinner is totally overrated for the price and you share...

Views were incredible, staff was cheerful and helpful, close to Kauri Cliffs golf course. Wi-if had spotty coverage in our room, had to use main room for connection. Had dinner there on the first night, more than enough to eat. Everything from the appetizers to the desert were first class.

We were very lucky to have a couple of nights at the Retreat with our Grab One Voucher. Richard and Carrie are exceptional hosts and full of fun. Location is spectacular with amazing views. Rooms were very spacious. Both nights we had the 3 course dinner cooked in-house which was well worthwhile. Also recommend the local Mahineapua Bay red wine....

Stayed at this gorgeous spot hidden up North of Auckland. Lovely private rooms with hosts that were not seen unless you needed them. Divine views off your own private balcony, complementary beach towels and kiwi jandels if needed. Amazing meals cooked with local produce at reasonable prices served at sunset. Would recommend to any one that truly wants to de...
