Fodor's Expert Review Cavalli Beach House Retreat
Mahinepua Rd., Kaeo, Northland, 0478, New Zealand
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. 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 call or checkout the website. The host is charming.
