Dunedin’s latest attraction, The Rustic Retreat, is now available for your exclusive use. This unique shed conversion provides the most fun you can have - both in and out of your gumboots!

An absolute labour of love, The Rustic Retreat combines rustic charm, elegance, Kiwiana appeal and luxurious comfort to ensure a holiday, honeymoon or weekend getaway you will always remember fondly. In fact, this gorgeous, elevated farm shed conversion may very well provide the best experience you have in our wee corner of the world.

Situated a mere 6km from the central city, The Rustic Retreat is located on a sunny, undulating farm so you can experience the best of rural life from within the city limits. Look out to sheep, deer and pigs grazing happily and enjoy the contented sounds of happy hens in their coop. And if you time your trip right, you may well get to meet - and cuddle - the latest additions to the family - very friendly ostriches!

The Rustic Retreat is a superb example of a meticulous restoration and conversion. The interior features a large open-plan space with gorgeous wooden features and ample windows to capture the rural vista. Everywhere you look there is another spectacular feature to admire. The space features a designated lounge area, wool-press bar-learner for entertaining and dining, kitchenette with microwave, electric frying pan and rice cooker plus washer/dryer for your laundry and the two queen size beds. There is a modern, tiled bathroom with shower (and gorgeous feature door) as well as a separate toilet.

The space is elevated for maximum sun and also offers a heat pump to ensure comfort in the cooler months.

There is also plenty of off-street parking for your car or camper van.

If you want to embrace the very best of life in New Zealand, but still need your creature comforts, this is the place for you. Appealing from the outside, absolutely enchanting from inside, we promise you won’t want to leave!
