Cool Rainforest Retreat

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Sproketz on January 27, 2009

We stayed one night at the Tui cottage at Te Nikau Retreat. It was one of the coolest and most unique lodgings we had while on a 2 week holiday in New Zealand, and the rate was reasonable! They have several rustic units of various bedding, bath, & kitchen configurations scattered throughout a little section of the rainforest between the main highway and the beach. (Some of the units are only accessible via short, maintained trails.) A Track nearby leads to a secluded beach, and a friendly resident Weka makes it's rounds, visiting the cottages! Great stopover if you're driving from Fox/Franz Josef to the Nelson rarea.
