  • The house in Twizel was perfect for us this weekend

    The house in Twizel was perfect for us this weekend. Once we got the heatpump going the house felt very cosy indeed. It was exceptionally clean and tidy and felt like we were stepping back in time :) the location of the house in relation to cafes, bars and restaurants was second to none. And I have to say that the shower was brilliant - superb pressure and temperature :)
