Helen Brown
We loved our stay here. The views are amazing and it’s big enough to accommodate big groups like ours comfortably.
Response from Owner
Thanks Helen for your review, we really appreciate it! It was a pleasure to host your group and we hope to host you again someday.
Myself and a group of friends stayed here in January. We rave about this place and have told so many people about how great the place was for our weekend away. I found it difficult to find a place that was big enough for our group of fourteen until we found Highview Retreat and wow it really exceeded our expectations. There was enough space to hang out together, and also enough to get some quiet time away from the group too. The single beds were set up before our arrival even with late notice. The owners provided great communication from booking to the end of our stay. If you are looking for somewhere that is spacious, warm, has comfortable beds and enough bathrooms/showers don't look past Highview Retreat. I would happily book our next trip away here over and over again as everyone enjoyed their stay so much. It would be the perfect place for a group and/or families over the ski season. I'm telling you, you won't regret it.

Thank you Rebecca for your kind words. We are very happy that you and your friends enjoyed your stay at Highview Retreat and hope to host you again in the future.

The House was everything we expected and more. After traveling for 2 days from the USA, those in our group of 12 were exhausted! We had found a place we called home away from home for the next several days. Fiona was a great host and very accommodating. No surprises, and all instructions were explained well. Loved the fact all rooms had a en-suite bathroom, or bathrooms next to the rooms. The backroom views of Lake Wakatipu were spectacular. In fact, several in our group just spent hours sitting by the windows enjoying that view! House was also very clean and tidy, and well equipped for our needs. We were not disappointed with your stay here. As for us, back to the frozen tundra in the Western U.S. Thank you Fiona.
