Stayed April 2021

Sacred Rest is just that, an idyllic haven in an easy access location. Highly recommended.

Stayed October 2020

The property has a very good location, where we can have beautiful views on the bay. The manager Anne is helpful and keeping contact with us all the time and also provided extra push coffee to us since the house is a bit remote and not easy to reach the fecilities. There was an urgent health condition happened on our elderly member on the day we left, thanks to Lisa who has nursing experience in your cleaning team helped us a lot, after her instruction we direct drove to Blenheim hospital and the condition was under control immediately.

This is a beautiful quiet setting with amazing views over the water. Even better than the photos! Well equipped, clean and everything we needed for a month long stay. Highly recommended :-)

Stayed November 2019

We had a lovely holiday here. We brought our kayaks and mountain bikes. The steps down to the water are well built just a bit steep if you need to carry a kayak down. But it's easiest to launch kayaks from the freedom camping spot down the road. Than paddle back to the back and tie kayaks up for easy access. Not much mobile phone reception unless you are with Vodafone. The back is great, tidy and homely. Good kitchen and kitchen equipment.

A wonderful location and beautiful house. Amazing views out over the water with access to a small beach which the kids loved. Plenty of bush for the kids to explore with a homely feel and a perfect place to relax.
