Ok so to be honest I am a reluctant renter as I use my house a lot.

I especially use the house skiing weekends in winter and also mountainbiking in summer! So please understand if i say no to your request.

I request people respect my house and leave it as they find it.

If you do want to rent it then I will give preference to mid week and multiple day rentals.

If you are a younger group then I need to be convinced this will not be party central with the resulting damage.

If you are Australian I need to know you know how to read instructions on water systems and light a woodburner without setting the carpet on fire.

If you have very young kids you need to ensure they wont fall down the stairs!

Modern, sunny house. Three bedrooms, large living and dining area, deck and balcony.

Unlimited wireless broadband connection included.

3 Bedrooms. 2 with queen beds & 1 with 2 king singles. Separate sofabed & 2 single mattresses as well.

House built in 2003.

Fantastic area for skiing at Craigieburn, Broken River, Cheeseman or Porters in the winter.

Summer boating and fishing on Lake Lyndon - 10 mins drive away, fishing in the numerous streams and rivers, or on Lake Pearson. Arthurs Pass only 30 mins drive away with the numerous walks and hikes in the national park available from there.

Unbelievably good mountain biking with a track that climbs out of the village up onto Long Spur that links to the Hogs Back and onto the new Dracaphyllum flat track near the Cheeseman Rd. World class beech forest riding in the Craigieburn and Broken River area, all within a few minutes drive.

Cave Stream only 5 minutes down the road, explore underground and do the 'right of passage' trip through the cave.

World class bouldering at the nearby The Castle Hill/Kura Tawhiti limestone rock formations.

    Great location, nice property, obviously a well-loved bach. It could have done with a vacuum before we arrived but it didn't hinder our stay. Would definitely come back again.
