Valley Vista Eco Retreat is the culmination of a dream we have had for quite some time. We live in an absolutely beautiful part of the world, in particular of Northland, NZ. We really look forward to sharing some of this with you.
We have a variety of accommodation options, ranging from powered campervan sites (2), to Glamping in a beautiful traditional Shepherds Hut, to a container house (CHouse), a motel style unit sleeps 4, a Tiny House B&B and a caravan at the curl of a koru shape, hence the Koruvan. We also have an Introduction to Camping option, where a tent is provided by us, all set up with beds, table, seats, gas cooker etc – all you need to bring is your sleeping bags, pillows and yourselves. We have extra blankets should the weather turn cold and towels for hire if you need them.
There is a price range to suit everybody from $15 per night per person for basic camping, to the luxury Shepherds Hut, which comes with everything provided including an outdoor bath, a good hot shower, meals and total privacy, at $380 per night, for two.
Everywhere you look is gorgeous views and utter peace.
The barbecue area is equipped with a big table and seating, a bbq, gas cookers, a refrigerator and nearby is a pizza oven. We have plenty of herbs and vegies for guests to pick for their own use.
Beth always knew she was destined to offer hospitality to people, right from the 3rd form (year 9) through. For the last 25 years it was determined that a Bed and Breakfast was ideal.
Barry thought we needed something bigger and more rural, so here we are. Loving every minute of it.
