Are you looking for Adventure, or to just relax? Then come to where the Southern Alps meet the "Roaring Forties", base yourself in Tuatapere, on the famous 'Southern Scenic Route' and allow at least two days to explore some of the hidden treasures of the extreme southwest of New Zealand. Walk five minutes from town to see the 'Leviathans of the Forest' - thousand-year-old Totara trees! Wander along stunning Blue Cliffs Beach, just ten minutes drive away and formed by the wild storms spawned from the Great Southern Ocean and Antarctica. Enjoy the 'world famous' Tuatapere sausages from the butchers around the corner. You can even walk the Hump Ridge Track and visit the largest viaduct in the southern hemisphere.

Welcome to Aunt Tui's where you'll feel like family or friends after even a night or two in this warm, comfortable and charming bach, which has everything you need for a relaxing or exciting holiday. It is private and well fenced so no worries if you're bringing pets or children and the large native garden is visited by tui, bellbirds and wood pigeons. Don't expect all mod cons when visiting Aunt Tui's, this house is very special and reflects the owners' interest in art and collecting. The décor is virtually unchanged from the time it was built with high timbered ceilings and open fires in the bedrooms. However, the beds are new and comfortable and will fit even the tallest visitor, one being “Californian King Size”! There is a 2nd double bedroom while the 3rd has a set of bunks for the adventurous and 2 singles. The sitting room is in the centre of the house and with an open fire complete with driftwood , a music collection that will take you back and comfy armchairs and couches, it makes for memorable evenings! Off the sitting room is the dining room which boasts an ancient refectory table that has seated up to 20! A small cosy kitchen with all the basics you'll need, leads through to the sun room which catches both sunrises and sunsets.

    If you like your crib stuffed to the rafters with knick-knacks and ephemera, then this place is for you. A bit musty on a rainy day but when the sun came out and the doors and windows were thrown open, this place was a unique gem. We had a happy stay here, especially when I found the 1978 Jam LP in the record collection. Not much to do in Tuatapere, even the famous sausages were a let down, but there are beautiful lakes and beaches nearby to explore.
