Coronet Lodge SKI / RELAX / WARM

 House is fantastic, with some great design features. Location is amazing, Surrounded by the mountains and easy to access all areas of interest. We had a very comfortable and relaxing stay. 

BLUESKIN BAY HOUSE - beach, space, views and peace

 Quiet and beautiful location and garden. Lovely character house and friendly host. 

Lovely secluded beachfront homestead

 This location is magic. We loved being away from it all. There is plenty of room for our 3 families. The fishing is great. The jetty and beach are so close & lovely clear water to swim in. We enjoyed a very relaxing holiday. 

Poplar Lodge - large comfortable home

 Poplar Lodge was really great accommodation for our family holiday. The bedroom setup was just what we needed for Grandparents, parents, and children. The large kitchen and dining area meant there was room for everyone without getting in the way of each other, and the BBQ and outdoor eating was lovely. The Lodge was situated really close to the centre of Arrowtown. It was in a quiet situation. We all had a very happy time here. Many thanks, and smiles all round.
