Curving down a cliff face like a spinnaker in full sail, this retreat overlooks a private horseshoe-shape bay. Rooms are decorated with tapa cloth and local artworks; king-size beds are made up with cream linen and faux fur throws. A path leads up behind the house to a hot tub; a massage therapist is available for NZ$115 an hour. Dinner is available on request. It gets booked out quickly in the summer months but there are often deals in winter so it pays to checkout the
website or ring! The host is charming.
