  • The view and the night sky were magical

    The view and the night sky were magical. The house is comfortable and well appointed. We would love to stay there again.

  • WOW

    WOW. Our family had a holiday we will never forget in this luxurious but relaxing holiday home in a beautifully remote location. An immaculate and lovingly cared for property with views that leave you speechless. Surely one of, if not the best, properties in South Canterbury/North Otago.

  • The property was very well cared for, clean, comfortable, and had lots...

    The property was very well cared for, clean, comfortable, and had lots of extras like basics in the pantry and a breadmaker (great to enjoy fresh focaccia with smoked salmon from nearby Twizel!) Highlight was the 2 hikes we did (Ben Ohau and Freehold Creek) - excellent views during and at the summit! Using the mountain bikes from the house we cycled part of the A20 track which was also great. Loved sitting by the fire with a book on the wet/windy days. It was such a beautiful week at Ohau house!
