Fabulous accommodation combined with healthy eating, fun guided sporty excursions and excellent training (as much/little as you want). Philippa & Pete really made our stay in the Bay of Islands the highlight of our month long trip in NZ, thanks to their ability to tailor our stay so that it was fun, active whilst getting to enjoy the sights in the area

Philippa has helped me to lose the weight which I have tried to lose for years.  She has an in-depth knowledge about nutrition, food and exercise and catered for my specific dietary needs as well.  She kept me accountable to eat better choices of food and kept me motivated and focused on achieving my weight loss goals.  After three months with Pip, I have lost all the weight I had dreamt of losing years ago, and I now feel fit, healthy and confident.  Thank you Pip for supporting me through this journey.  I recommend anyone who is struggling to lose weight to have a chat with Pip. She is approachable and non-judgemental.  Give it one last shot - you won't regret it!

The best retreat I have ever been to!" I love retreats and have been to many all over New Zealand and around the world.  They are always a great experience but nothing as rewarding. The reasons for this are: Pip and Pete are amazing people, so motivating and willing to do what it takes to maximise what's right for you out of the retreat. We had so many adventures and loads of exercise which pushed me beyond what I knew I was capable of but it was fun and I realised I could run 15 km's wow! how cool is that, it's now my newly found love "running".  I am definitely going back, I can't wait to get back there and get myself in top focus/performance.

Thank you so much Phillipa and Pete for a lovely stay.  You both looked after us with so much warmth.


A great start to getting back in shape.  Sure to come back.

My daughter and I have just finished a retreat with Philippa & Pete. The perfect combination of relaxation and physical activity both on site and off. The attention to detail, our needs always never too much to ask. Philippa is a beautiful spirit, she listens to your story and responds in an encouraging and supportive atmosphere.  Peter talks a lot, highly entertaining (no charge for the jokes 😉) and knows how to motivate and engage his clients. They share their home with their guests and the food...go experience clean healthy eating, seriously good! This suits anyone looking to refocus, practical tools you can take home and put to use....we will be back!

I can not express or thank you enough for how much my time here has helped me. Today I leave smiling, confident and with a new family. Will be back very soon!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! This retreat is one of my favourite places in the world. Thank you for making this trip both envigorating and relaxing. I'm inspired to keep working hard and to make some big changes. I'll be back!
