Kahere Retreat offers self-contained accommodation in a beautifully picturesque location perfect for couples, families and friends who enjoy being surrounded by nature and birdsong. Just 5 minutes’ drive from Franz Josef, Kahere Retreat offers just 5 individual chalets, each accommodating up to 4 guests.
All chalets are hand crafted from native wood and locally sourced materials. Each has its own unique charm and embodies the spirit of New Zealand’s West Coast. The property itself is spacious offering a great deal of privacy and has been designed to complement the natural environment. Fall in love with our beautiful native bush, majestic trees, colourful garden and of course the mesmerising mountain and sunset views.
Our Chalets are named after native trees; Matai, Rimu, Totara, Rata and Kauri. Each of our chalets sleeps up to 4 guests and is fully self-contained with its own bathroom, kitchen and living area downstairs and 2 bedrooms upstairs. The front deck of each chalet is the perfect place to sit back and enjoy garden-mountain-sunset views, while the heated, rainproof deck at the rear offers a cosy space to eat outdoors when the weather is chilly.
