The Hydro town of Twizel was never meant to stay....but lucky for you, it did, and this gorgeous wee Twizel house has been reloved and refurbished to make it one of the town's most sought after properties.

Decorated with the latest colours and textiles, this home is the epitome of comfort. Through the winter months, enjoy the log fire for warmth, outdoor spa pool to stargaze, leather recliners with a book, and faux fur rugs to snuggle up in on a rainy day, or after a hard days skiing.

During the summer months, wander 200m into town for al fresco dining at the fantastic cafes and restaurants, or some local salmon on the barbeque in the courtyard out front of the property. The spa will once again be welcomed if you're enjoying the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail, and a soak of the muscles at the end of a days biking will be bliss !!

Twizel has oodles of outdoor activities on the doorstep... from swimming, biking, fishing, tennis, golf, scenic helicopter flights, walking trails, black stilt colony tours, bi plane flights, mini golf, playgrounds, day trips to Mt Cook, Hot Tubs and Gliding at Omarama....to name a few.

So allow yourself some time..."Twizel Time" actually, and treat yourself to some boutique accommodation while you explore all the things this lovely high country town can offer.

Special conditions: - Property not fenced off from road, so guests attention to this paramount if children are staying !! - Spa pool locked at all times when not in use - Sorry, No pets allowed on property - Smoking outside only, but collection of cigarette butts will incur extra cleaning fees - be aware of high fire danger in summer months - you are in a residential neighbourhood - please respect the quiet lifestyle of our lovely locals living all around you :)

    Lovely little cottage with comfy beds and lounge area with a really home away from home feel. Just what we needed after a day at the lake.

    This was my first experience with BookABach, and what an introduction! Wonderfully friendly and amenable hosts; a perfectly delightful cottage with all the comforts of home (and then some); proximity to all amenities and some fabulous sights; and at the end of the day, a hot tub to sink into, luxuriating under the stars. We really couldn't have hoped for better, and definitely would love to return to this perfect little hidden treasure on Dusky. Many thanks.
