A tranquil spot nestled within Stewart Island’s native bush, the rustic KaKa Retreat has the dual advantage of having a peaceful atmosphere and the briefest of walks from the beach and town center. The silence might only be broken by the calls of the tui, fantail or kakariki birds—or a kaka, an infamous native parrot. It’s a bird watcher’s delight outdoors, while each self-contained cottage unit provides warm and comfortable accommodations with ensuite bathroom and free WiFi. Cozy beds have electric blankets and wool duvets in addition to the suite’s central heating.
