  • The beds were comfy and the bach was well equipped

    The beds were comfy and the bach was well equipped. We were a little uneasy with the CCTV cameras pointing in through the windows though? You have obviously had issues in the past that required you to install them but it was just a bit weird! St.Arnaud doesn't appear to be a high crime area. Anyway, a nice Bach just unlucky that we have experienced way better ones for the same price on the rest of our 55 day tour across New Zealand's North & South Islands.

  • Beautiful and private stay at Edge of the Wild

    Beautiful and private stay at Edge of the Wild. Didn’t use our car once as everything is walking distance. The lake, the shop and the school with the playground and basketball court.

  • Nice holiday cottage in a bush setting

    Nice holiday cottage in a bush setting. The Bach met all of our requirements and was in close proximity to the lake, great for going for a walk.

  • Lovely bach, well appointed and warm with the logfire

    Lovely bach, well appointed and warm with the logfire. Lovely yard and gardens and bush setting. Birdsong everywhere and only about 6 sandflies!
