We spent just 2 days at this beautiful place, but it was just one of the most beautiful places in whole New Zealand.. And I traveled both north- and southisland!
Its so perfect located, between the mountains right on the riverside..
We looooved the outdoor shower overlooking the river surrounded by trees which gives you the privacy you need for a shower.. the best shower I ve ever had!!
AND not to forget the outdoor bath at night right under the milkyway, surrounded by candles listening to the water of the river... the most romantic place ever.. although I was with my friend, we enjoyed bathing next to each other (in 2 outdoor bathtubes) a lot... :-D
Jenny also gave me permission to just take her horse for a ride in the mountains, although she wasnt even there, thank you for the trust Jenny, your horse is lovely and it was a great ride throgh the mountains... :-)
We had a beautiful dinner, cooked on the BBQ outside, next to the fireplace... very cosy and every detail in the cottage just makes it the perfect place to enjoy your holiday...
I think its a place for everybody.. couples, families with their children (a lot of animals, swimming in the river, mountain trips, etc.), friends and even alone if you need some time to relax from the stressfull everyday life....
So a big THANK for your great hospitality and just for the love you put into this lovely place..
We had the time of our lifes.. :-)
