If you want a luxury getaway in quiet rural surrounds then River Retreat is for you. A delicious continental breakfast tray is provided and a super comfy bed. You can eat out or make your own meals in the fully equipped kitchen. We have 10 acres next to the river and the Hororata golf course is just next door plus lovely views of the Malvern hills. We are next to Inland Scenic route 77 and the Rakaia and Waimak gorges are only a 15 minute drive away. And Ballooning only 5 minutes away.

Indawo
River Retreat accommodation is a barn that we built in 2013 and converted half into accommodation in which we lived in for a year whilst building our house. When we moved out we fully redecorated, recarpted and put in a log burner. It is completely separate from our house with its own garden and outdoor seating area. It is best suited for a couple but there is a sofa bed in the lounge with bedding provided which can sleep an extra 2.

There is great cellphone coverage, free Wifi, Satellite TV including Sky sport, DVD's, board games and a library.

You can sit outside on the patio and enjoy the views of the hills or if it is a cold day you can light the fire and enjoy the cosiness inside.

We are pet friendly but please let us know beforehand as we have our animals and need to make sure they will all get along first. We have our own pets - 2 dogs, 2 cats and a horse

Guests are welcome to walk around the property and there is access down to the Selwyn river. There are walks along the river or on the hill at the rear of our property.

Allan and I are earthquake refugees from Christchurch who are happy to have found our haven out in Coalgate. We love it so are sure you will too. We enjoy meeting people from all over the world and sharing our bit of paradise.

Hi I'm Margie and my partner's name is Allan, we live in rural Canterbury on a lovely 10 acre lifestyle property called River Retreat. We unfortunately had to leave our lovely home by the river in Avonside, Christchurch after our property was redzoned (forced to sell land to the government) in the 2011 earthquake. We were lucky to find this piece of land also by the river and built our beautiful new home in 2014. We called it River Retreat because it is, but also because our previous home was on River Road and our office around the corner which was also redzoned was on Retreat Road. What you see now at River Retreat we have either helped build or done completely ourselves. The unit is where we lived for a year while we were building our house, prior to that we live for 3 months in a caravan. When we moved out we recarpeted and painted, refurnished and put in a logburner (we wish we had put that in while we were living in it!). We have stayed in many different types of accommodation and wanted the unit to be somewhere that we would like to stay when we go away. We like our privacy and own space so it is totally self-contained with everything you could possibly need. The bed is extremely comfortable with 1000 thread Egyptian sheets. The shower has amazing water pressure. There is also a sofa bed in the lounge if needed. We love our animals and have 2 cat, 2 German Shepherds, a horse and some chickens. You are welcome to bring your pet you just need to let us know beforehand. There is plenty of space to run around and even paddocks that they can be contained in while you go out. Allan sold his Architectural Design business and is now enjoying having more time to work on his Photography business as well as looking after the property and animals. Margie is a volunteer ambulance officer Darfiled St John and Allan is a volunteer firefighter with the local fire brigade in Coalgate. Being a volunter has been part of our lives for a combined total of 45 years and we find it very rewarding. We love where we live and look forward to sharing our piece of paradise with you.
