Peak View Retreat: 360* Views, is Luxury in Secluded Wilderness

Peak View Retreat

Welcome to your luxurious mountain top villa, set amidst 150 acres of native bush in a spectacular wilderness location.

Architecturally designed the property was crafted from native timbers taken from the land and milled on site. The unique design of the home, with intriguing angles and use of glass and timber, enables uninterrupted 360 degree views of the surrounding landscape.

Usual Price: $899 per night

LiveLocal Price: $648 per night ✔️

No hidden extras! If you book through the LiveLocal website, our price includes everything for up to 4 adults! There are no cleaning fees, no extra guest fees, no linen fees... just good honest, all inclusive pricing!

The Space

Gaze out over native forest to the Richmond ranges, Pepin Island, Cable Bay and the Abel Tasman across the bay. Beech decking seamlessly extends the living areas to provide a wonderfully relaxing and open living environment.

Positioned perfectly to explore the Nelson/Tasman and Marlborough regions, if you’re after luxury in the wilderness Peak View Retreat is for you. Heli-transfers and day tours to the surrounding regions are available and we can highly recommend it for a memorable experience.

The entire home is exclusively yours to enjoy. We recommend you bring food to self-cater as we are a 45 minute drive from the nearest supermarket.

Alternatively you’re welcome to send us a shopping list in advance and we can have everything ready for when you arrive. We also work with a local catering company if you’d prefer to have all of your meals included, we cater and you serve! Let us know if you’re interested and we can provide pricing.

We will meet you on arrival at the bottom of the mountain and show you up the first time, we will give you a brief rundown of the property and region and show you how to operate your wood fired tub, then we’ll leave you to it! We will be available on the property, we work from home, but you will have complete privacy at the house.

Please note the only cell phone reception available on the property is at the house where you'll be staying. On the drive to Peak View you won’t have any reception.

Our driveway is a gravel road for 5.5kms up the mountain. It is a classic old school kiwi road, it’ll take you back in time if you’re from around here. If you’re from further afield, it is windy, and can be a bumpy adventure so we recommend a comfortable vehicle like an SUV. Trust us the journey is worth it! There is a gate or two to open along the way and sometimes you'll encounter our neighbours friendly chickens, turkeys or cows along the bottom of the road.

Peak View Retreat is spectacular - the pictures don't do it justice. We've stayed in vacation rentals all over the world - Peak View Retreat is the best we've seen. And Natalia & Carl were the best hosts - responsive, available, and warm. We came to New Zealand from San Francisco thinking this was a once in a lifetime trip. Because of Natalia and Carl, we are definitely coming back.

Natalia and Carl, thank you your home is absolutely breathtaking. We have enjoyed the peace and purity of your property and loved being fully present as we savoured first being embraced by the clouds and then your 360 degree views. Your hospitality and thoughtfulness is first class. See you again, Arohanui
