Retreat accommodation/place info needed in New ZealandDear all,
I'm a 30 year old female looking to retreat in New Zealand for 3 weeks. Ideally I don't want to be a part of a retreat program or a centre but would like to rent out a studio (a family home with an annex studio may be?) or similar would be nice keeping safety in mind. Basically, I'm looking to find a place that is remote, yet accessible by foot/public transport to a grocer. Somewhere quiet and serene with a view would be nice :) I'm looking for a place to mediate, spend time in quiet contemplation and write.
I have been looking but I'm lost. I'm not certain which part of the country I want to do this in and I would like to be in New Zealand by the 28th of October. Am currently in Sydney and will be in Melbourne for a few days before I head out to New Zealand.
Ideally I would like to keep the rent to $200ish a week. Will I be able to find something in that price range?
I would really appreciate if any of you know how to go about this....any place suggestions/accommodation recommendations or any info would be most helpful.

1safety of this kind is not really an issue in NZ, especially not outside the cities. There are still places where no-one locks doors.
Your price may be more of an issue. Have you tried airbnb, or some of the smaller bbh hostels? It is the quiet time and you may have some places to yourself anyway.

4checkout www.bookabach.co.nz for some possible isolated,retreat like places.
My advise is look for somewhere in Northland on or near a beach but you maybe very hard pressed getting something for $200p/w.
More than likely you could prob find a room to rent in Auckland for around $200p/w,this has become about the normal price for a room per week in Auckland now.
