Just had an incredible experience at Robyn and Bob's private retreat. The space is an independent apartment, large, comfortable, clean and new. After waking from a wonderful sleep in a luxurious bed, I renewed my yoga practice on the large lounge floor, sat with breakfast on my private deck overlooking a heavy laden rose garden. I'd then shower in a beautifully kept bathroom before going out for a day exploring the beaches, cycling in the countryside or a short drive into Oamaru for coffee, museum and second hand shopping. At night I settled down back in my retreat with all the amenities to entertain, or choose a quiet night with a book. Paradise indeed! Robyn and Bob are good people, generous and helpful and non intrusive. I am coming back again!

Response from Robyn:
Thank you Soraiya, it was a pleasure to have you in our home and you are most welcome back at anytime. We loved that you enjoyed our place and you were able to share evenings in your own space with your extended family who were staying elsewhere [with no dvd player for the kids, very special time!!!] Look forward to seeing you in the future.

Bob and I have retired to Kakanui and built a new home that we love. Bob loves sea fishing and I love my garden and we both enjoy other peoples company. We decided to do Airbnb so we can share the beautiful area that we live in.
