Clyde Plum Tree Cottage

 Wonderful cottage, so pretty & tastefully presented with lots of special homely touches. We particularly appreciated the outdoor sitting spaces - a wonderful relaxing place to come home to after a day exploring all the great things that Clyde and Central Otago has to offer. We will certainly recommend this property to our family & friends. cheers Louise 

Stunning outlook over Clutha River

 Awesome spot, private, tranquil. Lovely to be able to see and hear the river and a beautiful shady balcony. A great holiday many thanks 

Peekskill - Fabulous Old Stone House

 My family stayed in Peekskill for 2 weeks while we prepared for and celebrated my son's wedding at a nearby vineyard. While there, we hosted a meet and greet dinner for the families and close friends of the happy couple and the beautiful garden at Peekskill was absolutely perfect for such a special occasion. We loved living in this historic family home. Anyone wanting a real home away from home should look no further. 

Totally Relaxing holiday home in Clyde.

 Clyde is a beautiful little gem of a town, highly recommend this for a summer holiday destination. House had everything and more that we needed. Great outdoor area, bbq made it so easy. This town gets hot (41 degrees while we there) so the air conditioning was a welcome addition! Swimming in the lake everyday, evening strolls, great cafes up the road, all added up to suberb holiday. Highly recommend.
