We are happy to invite you to book a holiday at Taryn. Taryn is a new home (completed December 2013) built on our 17-acre smallholding. Solar electricity and hot water, well insulated and double-glazed throughout. The deck looks out over the dam, with plenty of bird life to watch. Conveniently located between Fairlie and Lake Tekapo, easy access to skifields, hotpools, and cafes. Burkes Pass Village is home to Burkes Pass Art Gallery, historic St Patrick's Church, crafts, walks and coffee cart.

Explore the mountains and vicinity, then come home to a warm cozy home. The living areas are open plan and feature big windows to enjoy the view. Learn how easy it is to live an off-the-grid life in a modern eco-home.

The grounds are not yet fully landscaped, and we do not recommend this property for families with very young children.

Special conditions: This property is not really suitable for very young children as there is no balustrade around the deck. However, you are welcome to discuss this with us and it may be that it will suit your family.
