          This beautiful retreat offers great views. The house is nicely decorated, has good beds and a good bathroom. It is hidden away on the Otago peninsula, but once you have found it, you do not want to leave again.

          hi, i have 2 guests visiting the hotel, since we have sole use of the lodge, would we be able to pick which of the three bedrooms we could use? thank you
          18 November 2016|
          Response from KaimataRetreat | Property representative |
          hank you for your enquiry - yes thats correct all 3 rooms will be ready for your clients choice - best regards rachel
          On online reservations, the only available choice is "kaimata lodge", does that mean regardless of number of guests (even if 1-2) you would reserve the whole 3 bedroom lodge/villa ? The rooms are not individually reserved?
