Your Hosts: Karenlee & Kerry O’Reilly
As owners of River Retreat we look forward to meeting new guests and welcoming returning guests.
River Retreat is approximately two acres and runs from Puketona Road down to the banks of the Waitangi River.
Our pavilion style home surrounded by native plantings to en-courage bird life is designed to take full advantage of this magical riverside setting.
The Garden Room and River Room are two self-contained private queen sized rooms in their own pavilion. These purpose built pavilion are linked to the main house by a covered glass walkway.
Each room has its own entrance and deck. We are pleased to offer a complimentary continental or cooked breakfast to suit your tastes.
A BBQ is available for guest use.
Explore the many features of Northland, the Bay of Islands to Cape Reinga.
We look forward to making your holiday in the beautiful Bay of Islands a memorable one.
River Retreat Update 2017
Well we have survived our first summer in the Bay of Islands, to say it was busier than we thought it would be, is an understatement and I would like to take the time to thank all of our overseas & New Zealand guests who came to visit us during that time, it was wonderful to meet all of you and we hope to see you again.
What will happen for us this season is a mystery still to happen, but we look forward to the coming season and to the new guests we are yet to meet as well as some returning to enjoy Bay of Islands.
My wonderful hard working husband has created a fantastic crushed shell and timber pathway that will allow easier access to our little seating area.
While staying with us one of our guests did a photo shoot and these are some of his photos that he sent to us that we would like to share with you.
