  • We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage

    We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. The property is very cosy, neat and tidy, newly renovated and having all necessary things in it, but also full of character and charm of the original building. The fireplace is fantastic and the views of the snow-covered mountains are truly stunning. The cottage is conveniently located - close to number of vineyards and cheesery, also a short drive to Queenstown. We wished we could stay longer :)

  • I loved this cottage and we were so sad leaving

    I loved this cottage and we were so sad leaving. I wish I had stayed longer. The cottage is gorgeous, small but very cozy, the cottage has everything you need during winter with its lovely fireplace. My only comment is the hand basin is small, I always ended up splashing the water on the floor :). Lisa is very friendly, she greeted us when we arrived, will definitely return again in the future. :)
