This cottage is the old rabbit house built by NZ gvt back in the day controlling the rabbit population. Nestled in the foothills of the two thumb range halfway between Fairlie & Lake Tekapo now a happy holiday home close to both Mt.

  • Pros: Cosy cottage

    Pros: Cosy cottage. Homely feel. Great fully fenced garden. Good views away from road. Cons: Could do with a heat pump in the main living area for fast heating in the morning. Location is right by the main highway (quite a lot of traffic noise as Windows aren't double glazed). At $220 per night I felt that this property was overpriced.
