GoldView Holiday Home

 excellent place to stay for groups or larger family groups. 

Coronet Lodge SKI / RELAX / WARM

 It is a very comfortable property, with nice and sounded architectural interior and exterior design which suits our taste. It is not too close to the township but is not far away. 

Poplar Lodge - large comfortable home

 Incredibly central to Arrowtown shops and the stunning cycling/walking trails. Metres away from Arrowtown Bike Hire, where the owners are just as amazing as the folk who rent the house :) There was ample space for 15 of us and catered well for our range in ages - from 5 to 70. Plenty of offstreet parking and the unlimited hotwater was ideal for a large group, especially with younger ones spending lots of time in the snow! This property was a huge part of a brilliant holiday. 

POST RETREAT - Former Post Masters Residence
