COVID-19 Information

If you are intending to book a solitary retreat please be assured that your safety, as well as that of our staff and volunteers, is paramount to us. To this end, and to comply with the most current NZ Govt Covid 19 guidelines we have introduced the following measures for people coming on a solitary retreat.

  1. We encourage you to bring all your own bedding (pillows, duvet, sleeping bag etc) and bed and kitchen linen (sheets, pillow slips, towels, tea towels etc). Bedding will however be available if you wish to use it, and as per our normal policy you can hire linen from us for $15 per set.

  2. We will arrange to meet you at the gate to the property where your host will be wearing a mask and expect you to also be wearing a mask.

  3. You can then either drive to your cabin in your own car if that is suitable, be driven there by your host, or you can walk.

  4. At your cabin you can use the QR scan code provided. Your host will tell you what you need to know about living comfortably and safely during your stay. A physical distance of at least 1m apart will be observed as much as possible.

  5. Hand sanitiser and other cleaning products will be available in the cabin.

  6. If you happen to meet other people on the property please try to keep a physical distance of at least 1m from them.

Please contact us if you have any other questions.

**Please cancel your booking if:

  • You have any symptoms associated with COVID-19
  • You are awaiting the results from being tested for COVID-19
  • You have been in contact with known or suspected cases of COVID-19 in the past 14 days
  • You, or anyone you’re in contact with, have returned from overseas in the past 14 days.
