Why do guests respond so favourably to Sunlover Retreat?  Owner/operators Donna and Chris Brooke says the things Sunlover epitomises are the things guests love most about their stay. She shares ‘The Five Loves of Sunlover’:
1. Sunlover loves summer days.
The retreat was designed to provide guests with the absolute best summer has to offer – warmth and light from the first sunrise to the final twilight.  The spirit of summer is easily evoked whilst sitting on the expansive deck enjoying spectacular sea views.
2. Sunlover loves to see people relax.
The essence of Sunlover Retreat is about providing a place for people to completely unwind and relax.  A heavenly night’s sleep in a luxurious bed, hosts taking care of every detail and the peaceful private location all combine to ensure guests are relaxed and rejuvenated by the end of their stay.
3. Sunlover loves good wine & food.
Sunlover’s home-cooked breakfasts are legendary, according to TripAdvisor reviewers.  The care and nourishment given through good food and drink, as well as top notch recommendations to local wineries and eateries all contribute to a satisfying and much-loved holiday.
4. Sunlover loves The Coromandel.
Isolated golden beaches.  Flame-hued sunrises.  Jagged bush clad mountain ranges.  Sunlover is situated in a glorious spot on Tairua Heights, where multiple natural wonders of the Coromandel Peninsula can be enjoyed all at once.  Guests benefit from their hosts local knowledge and discover hidden local treasures in the Coromandel’s stunning natural environment.
5. Sunlover loves people.
At the heart of Sunlover Retreat is a home of hospitality. The Sunlover welcome is warm, the farewell an authentic ‘see ya later’.  People return time and again.
Donna and Chris appreciate the time people take to write and share reviews about their stay at Sunlover Retreat and they personally responds to every post-visit review.   As they sees it, every guest stops being a stranger and becomes a friend. They are delighted with the TripAdvisor top honour and attributes it to guests sharing their Sunlover experience through TripAdvisor reviews.
