This unique lodge and restaurant is a peaceful place, showcasing southern hospitality and local cuisine.
Nestled amongst beautiful native bush, Kaka Retreat offers peace and tranquillity in a unique island setting where silence is broken only by the calls of the native Tui, Fantail, and Kakariki - and, of course, the infamous cheeky parrot, the Kaka. The Retreat is the perfect base for the single traveller, couples, families, and groups alike. Whether it's a studio apartment or group booking for up to 14 people willing to share facilities, we can meet your Stewart Island accommodation requirements.
We offer: five superior quality studio units that sleep 2- 4 people each, a two bedroom cottage that sleeps up to 4 people, a three bedroom cottage that sleeps up to 6 people, a barbeque, telephone, and WiFi, plus continental breakfast and laundry services at extra cost. We also provide complimentary transfers from the ferry terminal and flight depot.
Our beautiful location enables guests to unwind in a relaxing atmosphere with native bush gardens and plenty of birdlife, while Stewart Island's restaurants, shops and main attractions are only a five minute walk away. We'll make your Stewart Island stay an unforgettable and carefree experience.
