  • Absolutely stunning

    Absolutely stunning. We love everything about this property from the surrounding narive bush, the gardens, the wood interior and that view. Just the right amount of homely touches, everything you need while staying at a home away from home. We will definitely be back. Being from just over the hill in Nelson, we hope that this will continue to be a place for my husband and I to get away. We will also be recommended it to other friends and family. Thank you for sharing this beautiful place with us

  • Lovely property but we disliked the compulsory $70 professional cleaning fee

    Lovely property but we disliked the compulsory $70 professional cleaning fee. It would be better to have this an an optional fee or to take it out of the deposit if the property was not cleaned adequately after being vacated.

    Owner/manager responds:

    This was under Bach Care property managers. We have now changed managers and this is no longer compulsory.
