Max June 2023 I consider myself very lucky to have found this spot and book it for a 3 night stay with my partner, the retreat is situated on top of all of the rolling hills and farms surrounding you. It was an absolute treat to be able to wake up and hear the birds in the trees and sit by the newly added fireplace, we ended up spending most of our time getting cozy and watching the fire with some tea and music. There are a few board games and cards etc to enjoy, but if you just need to relax for a couple of days and do nothing this place is perfect. Leah checked us in quickly with the fire already going, and left us to be. We managed to make it up the steep road in our heavy van, which was a worry at first but it was easy enough. Once you get up there you get to experience the amazing views and realise you're all on your own! unlike some accomodation this is not tucked behind the owners house, it is far enough from anyone to play your music loudly and sing and dance without a worry.

About your host, Leah

Leah's Photo

We are Leah, Neil, Max & Ollie Anderson. Neil was born & raised in Fiji, and Leah was born in NZ but raised in Fiji, hence the tropical decor you may see pop up throughout Marua Retreat. Neil spent most of his younger years on super-yachts as a captain, and his job took him all over the world to remote parts including Antarctica. He purchased this farm in 1999 and his parents managed the farm while he continued working, and in 2013 we settled here to develop the property and raise our family. Leah has a background in Marine Science and Business and spent time in Fiji managing a family owned fish processing business before moving to New Zealand. We have two sons, Max & Ollie. We enjoy hosting our guests at Marua Retreat and we hope you enjoy your time here.
