A Luxury Lodge Beckons Along The Unspoiled New Zealand Coastline

Including a peninsula and surrounded by bushland, Westhaven Retreat is an uncommon prize home and tourist company chance on the northwest corner of New Zealand’s South Island. The 330-hectare (815-acre) website includes a remote and personal high-end lodge, among the nation’s biggest stands of native nikau palms and 8 kilometers (5 miles) of personal shoreline.
Building and construction on the standard Colonial-style complex started years ago when the owners of the last 30 years established the website and constructed 3 linked octagonal structures. The style was selected in keeping with feng shui practices.
Organic products were utilized to construct the eco-friendly lodge. Lots of hand-split Otago schist stone cover the foyers, patio areas and entrances.
Stone actions, a pillar-supported overhang and glass doors result in the reception location. Inside, a center garden is planted with palm trees that follow the open wood staircase approximately the next level.
A stone fireplace with a heavy wood surround includes a relaxing atmosphere to the dining establishment dining-room. The risen wood ceilings are made from recycled rimu and teak, and the lumber floorings are of Tasmanian oak and teak. Wide windows bring views and natural light into the semicircular space.
There are 2 lounges, a bar, 5 ensuite bed rooms and 2 high-end suites with such functions as sitting locations, verandas and day spa tubs.
The lodge swimming pool and day spa sit under a wood-beam supported glass canopy allowing year-round usage. Stone walls, plantings and a stretch of windows offer the area an indoor-outdoor ambiance.
Accompanying the 2,732-meter (or almost 30,000-square-foot) lodge are a two-bedroom home and shed.
Treking, seaside fishing and kayaking are amongst the numerous leisure possibilities along with Jeep, bike, safari and farm trips. There are 7 strolling routes on the website, with walkings varying from about 15 minutes to 3 hours.
Fish, abalone, mussels and crayfish remain in abundance. Westhaven Peninsula, which surrounds Kahurangi National Park and the Westhaven Inlet Marine Reserve and Wildlife Management Reserve, is house to 42 types of birds.
Westhaven Retreat might interest a worldwide purchaser thinking about establishing an ecolodge, high-end tourist service or remote cattle ranch. Approximately a 3rd of the land is dedicated to grazing and presently supports 700 sheep.
