Fantastic house, awesome location and an excellent host! Great to be out of the hustle and bustle of the town. Visit from a very special local in the evenings was the icing on the cake. Thank you very much.
Our family had a wonderful four night stay at Sea View Retreat. The property has all the amenities you could want including a good kitchen, multiple bathrooms and laundry, and easily accommodated our group of seven. The property was recently renovated and so the interior appeared clean and modern. The backyard was ideal for the kids to run around and play their games in. The views over Horseshoe bay are stunning on a sunny day, and we enjoyed dining on the deck and watching the waves roll in. The beach was a short walk down the path and and while not Stewart Island's best, was still swimmable on a Summers day. Nearby Butterfields beach is one of the best in the island. The property is several Kilometres out of Oban on a secluded hilltop, and so while you could walk into town on the trail near the property, it was a great help that the owners provided access to a car. We couldn't fault the owners for their hospitality as they kindly picked us up from the Ferry and transported our sizeable load of luggage to the property. They also provided helpful local knowledge about life on the island. One thing to note was the limited internet & phone coverage, but this comes with the territory staying in one of the most remote parts of New Zealand. There is mobile data coverage closer to Oban, and a limited signal at the property. We were lucky enough to spot a Kiwi down by the beach in the early hours. The sounds of the Tui and other native birds in the surrounding forest made for a peaceful soundtrack to our stay. We would happily stay here whenever we visit Stewart Island.
