Fiery Peak Eco-Retreat is our luxury eco-accommodation for couples. Built-in 2022, this 66 sqm chalet has been designed with the environment in mind. Powered by the sun, supplied with our own pristine spring water (UV filtered, unchlorinated), set amongst 12 acres of trees: this beautiful open-plan chalet looks out across farmland to the mountains. Your time at the chalet will allow you to disconnect from the stresses of life, and reconnect with the beauty of a natural environment.

Gaze at the mountains from the king bed through open bi-fold windows, take a long soak in the handcrafted (Lignum) woodfired hot tub, gaze at the splendour of a sky full of stars, listen to bird song, BBQ your dinner on the deck while you watch the sun go down behind Fiery Peak, linger while the sky changes colour and ducks fly home for the night, recharge your soul. Take a plunge in our gorgeous natural spring – fed pool. It’s stunning!

Please let me know if you would like to book the wood-fired hot tub as an extra. Filled with our own fresh spring water (no chemicals) and heated ready for your arrival ($60 for first night, and $20 for 2nd night – just bring cash with you for payment.

The Space

Fiery Peak Chalet is located set amidst our 12 acres property in Pleasant Valley: a short 10 min drive from Geraldine, or 5 mins off HW 79 (if coming from Tekapo/ Mt Cook). Access off Pleasant Valley Road at 662 onto our property, over a stream and through trees will present you to the chalet with a backdrop of mountains. If we know your arrival time, you will be greeted in the chalet by music, fairy & firelight (if cold or dark). If you wish to book the hot tub, it will be ready & awaiting you (please give us ample notice – a day would be preferred unless last minute booking – as it can take up to 3 hours from filling to heating to 40 deg).  
Rural walks on quiet country roads, a telescope for viewing the night sky, or just sit on the deck and watch the clouds drift across the mountains and forget your worries and the world for a night or two, games, puzzles, and books are all provided in the chalet. 

CATERING
Complimentary organic teas and coffee, juice, and milk are provided for your arrival. The chalet is self-catering so please bring your own food supplies for the duration of your stay. Alternatively, pop into Geraldine to stock up for cooking or BBQing. If you like to dine out there are some lovely restaurants & cafes to choose from. Alternatively grab a takeaway: cooked chicken, a selection of salads, bottle of wine from the local supermarket or check out the takeaways available at Royal India, Q Foods, Foodies, Thai or good ole kiwi fish and chips. 

Guests say that a clear night sky at Fiery Peak is as rewarding as viewing the dark sky at Tekapo. With the telescope provided, you can check out the stars from the deck or lie out on the grass to take it all in with your eyes. 

BBQ
We have a Weber BBQ for guests to use. It is just gorgeous sitting outside enjoying the evening, cooking, wining and dining with the back-drop of the mountains.

LATE CHECK-OUT
At Fiery Peak you can take your time on your departure day if your schedule allows. Wake up, relax, & enjoy your morning coffee in the hot tub before heading away. Check out anytime until noon.
