Taihape Retreat is a fully furnished 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom home away from home. With incredible views from all windows and deck, this is peace and tranquility and can accommodate up to 6 people.

With a fully equipped full size kitchen including a laundry complete with washing machine, this getaway has amazing views especially from the spa pool on the deck overlooking it all 

A wholesome family cooked 2 course dinner can be delivered to your retreat where you can sit and enjoy the flowers and magnificent view by candlelight and moonlight or guests are welcome to go to the homestead.

Your 3 course homemade meal may consist of shrimp cocktail, soup or platter to start with, seasoned chicken, roast lamb or lasagna served with fresh home grown vegetables or summer salad, and a yummy dessert like apple crumble from our 100+ year old apple tree served with fresh whipped cream.  A bottle of bubbles can be included as an additional extra.

We do not have a set menu and are happy to cater for vegetarian and glutton free. Or guests can bring their own provisions as the Retreat has a full kitchen. We can also provide a continental breakfast basket and or a cooked breakfast with fresh happy eggs from our free range happy chickens and smoky bacon.

To add a touch of Romance to your getaway, be sure to add one of our Romantic Delights gift boxes to your booking.

what our clients say

All went perfectly! Jimmy did an amazing job cooking, and got the raft and sign weather !  Thanks for all your work.  Oh....she said yes too which is a bonus! ~ Hayden, Taranaki

Booked through Romantic Gestures.  What an awesome place to come and relax, dinner, wine and breakfast all prepared.  It was wonderful.  And my happy place was the spa, what a view straight down to the canyon.  Also a record player for a lovely Romantic dance in the evening.  All thanks to my darling Paul. ~ Paul, Taupo
