What our customers say

Stunningly beautiful place to stay with the most wonderful hosts. Janene and Dave have made sure the cabin is stocked with everything to make your stay comfortable (the most well-stocked fridge and the most extensive and helpful guidebook of any place we’ve ever stayed)

The icing on the cake… this is paradise! The attraction of an off grid log cabin with no phone, no internet and no TV but also with open fireplace and outdoor baths was too good to refuse….as well as only a short drive from Dunedin! Thoroughly recommend Cascade Creek Retreat for those that want to get away from it all….but also do it in luxury

Incredible Luxury Retreat Run By Lovely People – What More Could You Want? It is set in the most beautiful surroundings imaginable. Set on the side of a hill overlooking a gully and surrounded by a combination of farmland and native forrest, it is truly a haven of peace and tranquility. The accomodation itself is a hand crafter wood cabin, rustic but finished to a high spec, with all the creature comforts that I could have asked for.

The cabin had everything we were hoping for. No disappointments here. Gorgeous setting, roaring fire, tranquil birdsong, stunning deck and perfect place to unplug from electronics and reconnect as a family. We stayed with our kids 10 and 12 plus my elderly parents.

Words really can’t describe how fabulous Cascade Creek is…you really have to experience the tranquillity and beauty yourself…if you are after somewhere to indulge yourself and reconnect with nature or your partner then this is the place to go… gorgeous outdoor baths with only the bellbirds, tuis and kereru for company…perfect for a romantic getaway, no wifi or tv…perfect!

Awesome wedding Anniversary. Location was everything we dreamed of, totally private with everything you need for a memorable stay. The log fire, hammock and outdoor btahs are just the best, the outdoor laundry is very cool too. Have already recommended to friends and family.

Thank you for the most perfect getaway. We were completely blown away by the cabin as soon as we got out of the car and approached it- such a feeling of awe. Amazing spot, loved the sheep. Loved the fire, having a hot bath under the stars, an adventurous walk and all of the amenities provided were completely amazing. Absolute highlight of our NZ trip – we will be back one day!

“Loved the outside baths, soaking in the rain under umbrellas! Very romantic…”

This is an incredible place to stay. The feedback is 100% justified. JUST. WOW. We will be back again, and again. Thank you for having us here! Our time here was very special: The walks are picture perfect, and the log cabin is what we’ve dreamed of for many years, thanks!
