Great spot, handy for traveling up and down the coast. Amazing hosts and a great venue. We really enjoyed our time at the coast and our stay at The Rutherglen Retreat.
I stayed at the Rutherglen Retreat for nearly 6 weeks. Normally when I need to go away for work for this long it can be quite a downer. But staying at this accommodation was a fantastic find. Jody and Bruce are fantastic hosts and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The rooms are comfortable, there is a separate entertainment room which has a bar and projector as well as board games. In the weekends instead of going home I got my partner to come and stay at the Rutherglen with me. It's the personal touches which make this a stand out place to stay from blankets in the movie room, to home cooked meals, to the heater being on when you get home. I highly recommend this accommodation if you want to experience the best of West Coast!
My husband and I with our 3 kids have just returned home after spending 2 nights at the Rutherglen Homestay after travelling round the south Island for 9 days., I just wish it was longer! Holidaying with 3 children isn't always relaxing... but this place is amazing! Jody and Bruce are wonderful. The place is even better than the photos. The biggest hit with my children being the movie room and huge space to play soccer and cricket. The courtyard is so relaxing. It was so lovely to unwind and enjoy our time there. We will definitely be returning!
