Cute and comfortable beachside cottage

 We liked the kiwi feel to it. We loved the beach being just about right outside the kitchen window. The location is great and we found everything we needed in the house. It is a very relaxed low key place with all the home comforts which lends itself to taking it easy and enjoying the location. There were lots of organic veggies for sale in the same street which was great too!

Mount View, St Arnaud

 Loved the size of our room and the top view of the mountains! The owners told us about a great lookout nearby where we could see Fox Glacier. I have been in Fox many times, but did not know about this lookout. We would have liked the restaurant to be open, but as we were off season, it was closed. I will definitely come here again. 

sunny warm stunning views just all round good

 The house is a stone's throw from the town and you can enjoy an amazing view from the deck !!! Well equipped, clean, comfy and plenty of room for 6 of us. The perfect place at a great value. Thank you.
