Self-contained two bedroom apartment with private entrance. Sleeps 6. Bedrooms include two Queen size beds and one Single bed. Living room has a quality double sized sofa bed. Stunning views of the sea, mountains and historic precinct. Secure. Peaceful. Private. Fully equipped kitchenette. Walk everywhere.

The Retreat is a self-contained space on the ground floor of our family home on Avon Street.

Our home is not the Ritz as it is an older style property, but the location is! Nesting on the hill overlooking the Oamaru Harbour taking in stunning sea views, Avon View is conveniently located between the Yellow Eyed and Blue Penguin Colonies and only a short walk to the Historic Precinct, Steampunk HQ, I-Site, Cafés and Restaurants.

The Retreat has its own private entrance off a secluded BBQ area and a beautiful fairy tale garden with big native trees, tucked away reading nooks and quiet places to collect yourself and be at peace.

This listing is for both our Sea View and Sunset Room - two lovingly refurbished guest rooms with supremely comfortable queen size beds. For bookings with 5 or 6 guests we can prepare an additional single bed in the Sunset room and/or a double sized sofa bed in the living room.

Guests will have their own private bathroom, a separate toilet and a simple yet functional kitchenette (mini-fridge, microwave, oven, toaster, kettle, cooking utensils, spice rack, free coffee/tea).

Relax in our recently extended and renovated TV lounge with comfy couch and a big wooden dining table. We offer Sky TV (Satellite) with 5+ Sports Channels and have a selection of music and movies for you to choose from.

We have recently upgraded our heating system to include a heatpump, panel heaters and electric blankets (winter) so your stay will be as cosy as possible.

Please refer to our other two listings “Avon View Retreat Sea View Room” https://www.airbnb.co.nz/rooms/12892653 and “Avon View Retreat Sunset Room” https://www.airbnb.co.nz/rooms/14641454 if you only need one bedroom. These listings are suitable for small groups consisting of 1 to 3 travelers.

Guests will have access to secure off-street parking.

The Retreat has its own private entrance via an external stairway. Guests will have access to a private sunny courtyard & garden shared by the friendly house owners.

Guests have sole access to Avon View Retreat. The place is for the exclusive use of YOU and rented ONLY to one party at a time.

The upper level of the house is not accessible to guests.

While we like to meet our guests in passing, Avon View Retreat is very private and frequently guests come and go without seeing us.

We want our guests to feel welcome and comfortable in our home and are happy to share our local knowledge with you whether it is on Oamaru events, attractions or restaurants.

While the owners, Sue & Frank, work full time, Kristin can be reached on her phone at any time and is happy to assist you if you need her help.

Our house on Avon Street is situated in a very tranquil and secure neighborhood. It's only a stone's throw away from the beginning of a walk that takes you up to the Oamaru Lookout Point where you can enjoy the most stunning sunrises and sunsets.

King George Park, the Public Gardens with their bird aviaries, the Aquatic Centre and moreover the unique Steampunk playground – all at a very small distance - make our Retreat the perfect place for families.

Only a 10min drive south is Kakanui, a lovely place to go for walks, swim or surf. Another 25min further and you’ll arrive at the famous Moeraki Boulders and the Moeraki Lighthouse - most significant breeding site for yellow-eyed penguins. Or drive an hour inland through the beautiful Waitaki Valley with its numerous lakes and walks...

This isn’t a hotel. It’s a cozy self-contained apartment for friendly people to enjoy a private but home-like experience.

While tea & coffee making facilities are provided, we are not a traditional 'Bed&Breakfast' with a breakfast offering but we can recommend that you head to Tees St. Cafe (10min walk) for all of your breakfast needs.

Beds INCLUDED in the room rate as follows:
Bookings for 2 people include the use of 1 Queen bed
Bookings for 3&4 people incl 2 Queen beds
Bookings for 5 people incl 2 Queen beds & 1 Single OR 1 Sofa bed
Bookings for 6 people incl all beds (2 Queen, 1 Single, 1 Sofa bed)
If you require an additional or seperate bed(s) a surcharge applies: $15 per bed/per stay. Please note that we will not automatically prepare all beds unless your booking is for 6 people so please let us know at the time of booking.

Our place is suited for children of all ages under the supervision of their parents. They may share one of the existing beds or use the single bed in our Sunset room or the sofa bed in the lounge room. We can also provide a cot bed for our youngest guests. A surcharge may apply so we recommend that you contact us BEFORE you make a booking.

Our old cat “Sparky” knows all our neighbours. In between chasing other cats and sea gulls he takes regular catnaps in the sunniest spots in our garden. He only comes home for a pat, a meal and the occasional sleepover by the fire in winter and only has access to the upstairs floor and not the Retreat.

Please note that bookings during the summer season (December-April) may require a 2 night minimum.

can be provided upon request.

Hi all,

I´m Kristin, your host at Avon View Retreat.

I love my town and sharing it with others. I’m easy going and love getting out and about exploring different places. I am a keen traveller and have done my fair share of it in New Zealand and overseas - whether backpacking, camping, or the occasional splurge on a 5-star resort!

You wouldn't call me a ‘party animal', but I do like socialising and meeting people. I enjoy a wide variety of interests: photography, design and architecture, animals, music, second hand shopping, popping down to the beach and anything arts & crafts.

Growing up in Chemnitz/Germany, I have graduated in Hotel Management in 2007 and have since lived and worked in Spain, Austria and NZ.

It was on a working-travel holiday in 2013 when I first met my partner Joel. After living in Australia for over three years and travelling through South America he returned to his hometown Oamaru and now works as a Process Manager at the Glenavy milk plant.

Together with Joel I have lived in Oamaru for a bit over two years now and I can really say that this quirky wee town feels like home. There are so many hidden places to discover and even after living here for that long, it constantly surprises me.

The Airbnb is located on the ground floor of a typical Kiwi family home owned by Joel´s parents, Sue & Frank. Once all three children flew the nest, it was time for a new chapter. As a team we refurbished & redecorated the former children´s rooms into guest rooms and an old laundry room into a kitchenette. Many working hours were dedicated towards the transformation and we poured all of our hearts & souls into this project. It has since been a great adventure and we love sharing our home with all you holiday makers from around the world!

Please send us a message any time if you would like to ask any questions or make a booking.


Sue, Frank, Joel & Kristin
