  • Fabulous location

    Fabulous location. Peaceful and quiet away from the road and on a lovely private lifestyle block. Horses, sheep and fruit trees over the fence. Close to all the wineries in Gibbston and minutes from Arrowtown. Bicycle tracks and the river make for a fun day out and the bikes are free to use. Lots to see and plenty to keep you busy, come back and relax! Perfect!!

    The property was great and located close to several wineries in a nice secluded spot. The cottage had a nice fireplace (we took advantage of!), And had everything we needed to enjoy our stay.

    Amazing location right in the heart of Gibbston but still a short drive to queenstown and the delicious restaurants in Arrowtown. Walk, bike or a short drive to the vineyards and tavern. Perfect base for exploring the Otago region. If you want to stay somewhere outside the busy hustle and bustle of Queenstown, with character and charm then this is the place. Will definitely be returning!
