by Naomi Pettigrew on RedBach Retreat

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights with several other couples, we had a lovely relaxing time, fishing, walking, biking. Barbara and her husband were extremely welcoming and went out of their way to offer advise and show us the area. Some friends did crafts with Barbara.
The accommodation was very clean well equipped and delightfully quirky
Will definitely return

Something for everyone.

My first visit to Redbach was last weekend to do a workshop. I absolutely love this place it is just magical. The facilities are amazing and nothing is too much trouble for Barbara, a wonderful host. Everywhere you turn there is something whimsical to soak up. The craft room is amazing, I can't wait to return .

Inspiring

What a gem Barbara and Terry have created. A visual feast with all Barbara's creations, along with such well kept, clean and interesting buildings. I simply had to stop to make sure I saw and soaked in everything around me. The workshop area was really warm, full of light and space - a fabulous place for any group creative gathering. I can't wait to come back for our next retreat.

WOW

Superlatives abound for this unique, quirky, fascinating, get-away. Barbara and Terry are wonderful hosts - the best there are. Their retreat is Home-Away-From-Home style, and their creativity is boundless. RedBach is a must-go destination for short stays, quiet relaxation, creative stimulation, individual or group time-out opportunities. I will certainly return often, hopefully bringing my friends and art materials. Once visited, this place is certain be be on your must-return list too!!!

by Maria on RedBach Retreat

Hours of nonstop writing, interspersed with laughing, eating, sharing, walking. We are so lucky to have this wonderful retreat on our doorstep. Till we meet again, thanks Barbara.

Back again

I have been to Red Bach retreat before and loved it so much I was back last weekend. It is a wonderful haven in a beautiful place, enhanced by the warmth of our hosts. I shall return again - and again. Thank you Barbara and Terry for sharing your piece of Paradise.

Coastal Paradise

What a perfect couple of days spent at Barbara and Terry's retreat. I came away feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Barbara has thought of everything you need, in particular the beds which I just melted in to. I will most definitely return, the perfect antidote to offload the stress of city life! thank you so much. Julie

by Leadbeater Family on RedBach Retreat

Absolutely fabulous family weekend away.!! Red Bach Retreat is even better than it looks on the website and Barbara and Terry are wonderful hosts. We will definitely be back - 3 generations and the dog had a truly wonderful time.

Hidden Gem

We had the most wonderful time here with our two kids (age 7 and 10). Barbara and Terry are fantastic hosts who have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable. All the cabins are spotless, the beds super comfortable, and they have electric blankets and heaters for chilly nights. The main house is cosy and inviting, and the covered seating area outside would be awesome in summer. The weather wasn't great while we were here but the beach was still wild and beautiful, and the forest provided a sheltered alternative for windy days. The kids loved playing hide and seek and exploring all the nooks and crannies around the property, and there were heaps of board games and books to keep us all entertained. They didn't even miss not having a TV (although they did watch Netflix on the iPad a couple of rainy nights!)

Thank you both for giving us all such a memorable experience. The kids miss you and the dogs already! We'll be back in summer for sure.

Perfect Weekend

We had the best weekend at the Red Bach Retreat - perfect place to unwind and spend time with family and friends (including the dog!). The hosts are excellent - highly recommend!

by Janet on RedBach Retreat
A lovely weekend

Congratulations Barbara and Terry on creating a wonderful, comfortable, relaxing and fascinating retreat. Our group of 7 adult trampers enjoyed exploring the forest, coastline and the estuary, and the cosy indoors when it rained. Thanks for being so generous and for sharing your local knowledge.

Creative Cocoon

Cocooned in the most comfortable bed on a rainy night was the perfect finish to a day where the creative juices flowed, inspired by the surroundings and people the retreat was shared with. Was just what I needed and will definitely return. Thanks to the hosts for making Redbach so special

by Stella on RedBach Retreat
Blissful and Magical

This is a very special piece of paradise for a rest or a creative retreat. Thank you to the most wonderful hosts Barbara and Terry.

by Shona Edwards on RedBach Retreat
Retreat a treat!

The perfect escape, where you can hide or wander around an idyllic kiwi beach bach settlement. Communal areas and separate single units on offer. Quirky, creative art gardens and beach walks at the back door. Time to reflect, write, recharge, with gorgeous hosts at your service.

by Ami on RedBach Retreat
Wonderful!

A fabulous place to relax and retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life. A comfortable, quirky and inspiring place to write. Thank you so much to generous hosts Barbara and Terry. I’ll definitely be returning.

by Rosie on RedBach Retreat
Can't fault

There are not enough superlatives with which to sing the praises of this place. It totally lives up to the description of quirky but it is not quirky at a cost. Everything is 50s bach style, but immaculate. Great bed. Best sleep I've had for ages.
Thanks Barbara & Terry

by Eva on RedBach Retreat
Magical!

RedBach retreat is a magical place that gets your creative juices flowing! Unique artistically designed retreat in a beautiful setting away form it all -with a very special vibe, top notch amenities, and a fabulous caring host i am truly enchanted, and will be back soon!

by Claire on RedBach Retreat

I visited this lovely location last year, and had a wonderful time. The venue is very peaceful with whimsical custom art pieces surrounding the grounds. It is a short trip to the beach with drift wood as far as the eye can see. The bed and sheets were super cozy and relaxing and the host was extremely generous and accommodating when needed. If you are considering it....you won't regret your time spend here. I stayed for leisure for 3 days while exploring New Zealand, i stayed at many airbnb's during my 2 week trip (i am from Canada) and this was my favorite by far. Highly recommend to anyone.

by Marie Greenbank on RedBach Retreat

This charming retreat allows private spaces for concentrated focused writing, communal spaces for sharing, eating, relaxing and gorgeous walks amongst the lagoons, the lupins, driftwood,seagulls, seashore and intoxicating sea air to refresh the mind. It's quirky, comfortable and affordable.

What a spot

What a great place! Funky old batch but with modern accouterments. Comfy beds. Good clean kitchen with more than everything we needed. Modern bathroom. And the beach! Wild West coast. Energising walking.

by Valerie on RedBach Retreat
Perfect

What a great place. Not only is it peaceful and quiet - at night just the sea in the background - but it has beautiful art all around, inside and out, all handmade by Barbara. The perfect place for concentrating and reflecting. A pleasant room with a comfortable bed and desk, plus a great kitchen and dining area. Warm and comfortable. Loved it. Thanks Barbara and Terry.

by Frances on RedBach Retreat

Fabulous retreat away from everything. Beautiful location, such a wonderful creative space, close to the beach. Everything you could possibly need and more.
