    The property is just a short walk from the Makarora River, on a quiet side road. The bedroom is huge, with a desk, lounge and extra facilities. The bathroom was also clean and spacious. We highly recommend this place, and take a trip with Wilkin River Jet-boats if you have the time.

    The cottage is exactly like what you see in the pictures, homey and well equipped with all you need inside, plus a fabulous view outside. I wish I could stay there a little longer!
