“Better than a 5 star hotel!”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Don't bother with a hotel just come here and enjoy!

After having been to a couple of ok hotels on our trip around New Zealand's South Island it was a breath of fresh air to come here and enjoy a home away from home! A quick shopping trip to New World for wine and food meant lovely home cooked meals in a luxurious cottage with a roaring fire and stunning views of the mountains.

Great outside parts with BBQ and hot tub combined with some very thoughtful additions to the kitchen/bathroom and bedrooms meant that this place feels relaxed and happy as soon as you walk in!

It's a wonderful locations for various ski fields and within short car ride/long 2km walk to the town centre with the amazing views over the lake onto the mountains. Some interesting bars and restaurants are down by the lake and the staff i encountered in shops and cafes were very friendly and welcoming.

It's a great HQ for exploring Central Otago wineries, landscapes and ski fields, couldn't ask for more!

What a wonderful experience with scrumptious muffins and sparkling wine on arrival. For our honeymoon weekend where we found everything was set up for us. It was the little things that made the difference. Beautiful linens and beds that were so comfortable! Sharynne and Rob were wonderful to deal with. We would definitely stay again next time. Everything made for a luxurious weekend.

We stayed here for 7 nights so we could have a family holiday in Wanaka and ski. This house is so amazing - clean, modern and warm with every luxury a family could ask for. We would definitely come back and stay. The location is perfect for Cardrona and Treple Cone

Fantastic home, location and facilities. We stayed at this beautiful home for 6 nights and could
not fault it! As a family we enjoyed every space in the house and found it hard to tear ourselves
away for daily outings. The location is supurb with so much to see and do in Wanaka, the fantastic Florences cafe next door was a delight to find with friendly staff, beautiful food and great
coffee. Your attention to detail in the home is second to none and we cannot wait to return to
this beaufiful region and in particular your beautiful home. You exceeded our expectations in every way!!

Room Tip: Master bedroom downstairs is great with own TV, walk-in robe & ensuite well suited to those not...

We spent three nights in house and just loved it. The media room is awesome and the kids loved chilling out in here after a full day out exploring the area. From the BBQ to the spa and everything in between these guys have gone the extra mile to make sure your stay is easy and enjoyable. Would certainly reccomend.
Thank You

We stayed for 2 nights and it was not enough! It was so everything you could ask for and want when your away from home, there were even muffins on arrival! The location was perfect and the cottage was so comfortable with beautiful views with an outside spa and BBQ. We will definitely go back as it was a highlight on our trip.
