 Delightful kiwi crib in a stunning part of the country. Very comfortable and friendly experience. 

Stunning Panoramic Views and a Swimming Pool!

 Fantastic spot with excellent, clean accommodation and a wonderful pool. Perfect week away for all of the family and ideally located for exploring the region. Thanks very much Gina. 


 Comfortable, clean, everything there you would need and all in good working order. Nice setting. Ideal accommodation for a couple and a very short drive to central Nelson.

 Fantastic location, feels like it's only you, the native birds and the beech trees. Very homely and a place to relax in. Thanks
