Huntaway Lodge is small (just five rooms) and superb, perched on a hillside with a wide balcony-deck overlooking three pristine wine-glass bays and the ocean and Cavalli Islands beyond. Modern comforts in the lodge and retreat are in plentiful supply: wonderful bathrooms, heated floors, hidden TV’s/DVD’s/CD’s and a companion library of specially selected films and music.....

.... There are as many extras as you can think up without being ridiculous: chocolates and port in the bedrooms, boogie boards, kayaks, towels for the beach and a superb spa pool with infinity ocean views to die for; just the place for a sunset drink and dreams. All the rooms open onto private areas of the deck where you will linger under parasols with a bottle of wine before dinner… or perhaps all day. Dinner can be taken al fresco and food is specially prepared to suit tastes and dietary requirements by the wonderful resident chef. The central guest area is an open contemporary space with comfy sofas, fresh flowers, modern art, games to play and places to relax. The gardens have been designed and planted to give guests a real NZ experience. The aim is to allow you the feeling that this is your private house, but to provide excellent personal service and 'tailored' dining with it.
