Alverno Retreat - respite, peace and tranquility
A place of rural tranquillity for families, small group retreats, or beach weddings just north of Waikanae, on New Zealand's Kapiti Coast.
With an atmosphere of healing and recreation by wetlands, this affordable holiday accommodation is within sound of the sea.
As well as being disability and pet-friendly, Alverno Retreat is a haven for artists, stargazers, and bird and butterfly watchers.
Sing along around the piano after a walk along the beach to the Estuary Bird trial, or up to the bush.
Four bedroom house and one bedroom cottage, barrier free and accessible with Internet and child minder available. Fees negotiable.
"Thank you once again for the use of your home for the meetings on the
weekend. We had a great time and the group had a wonderful opportunity to
grow in their faith." St Hilda's Alpha Group 12 June 09.
"My paraplegic daughter and I stayed at Alverno beach retreat. We found the house most suitable. We found Sylvia to be a knowledgeable, sensible person with regards to my daughter's very specialised needs. Sylvia was very prompt in completely understanding our situation and how important small things could be for us. She was always prepared to go the second mile to make sure our stay was comfortable and happy. I can recommend her retreat to anyone in a similar situation." Robina Adamson Nov. 03.
"Ideal location for our retreat, very pleasant hostess- helpful, warm. Many thanks." Christian Fellowship For The Disabled, 10.06.05.
