 Maytime Cottage Arrowtown

 What a great property, we will be back. Privileged to meet Greg the owner. This cottage is a must stay in this vicinity. Really handy to town and for us , the golf courses. All five of us will be recommending to our friends. The stone, Greg, front and centre as you walk in. Cheers Ian.
