  • Perfect little spot for two

    Perfect little spot for two. Not the sort of place you'd want to confine yourself to all day long but there's no need to as you should be out enjoying what the Nelson Lakes region has to offer.

    We thought this was a great little bach but it won't suit everyone. Given its size it is best suited for couples, and the water cylinder is tiny. Otherwise it is spotlessly clean and well maintained. There are separate kitchen and living/sleeping areas, a bathroom and toilet. All the appliances work. There is a good range of saucepans, a coffee plunger and an expresso machine, a sofa and a TV/DVD player (no TV reception). Heating is electric and perfectly adequate. The dawn chorus is superb,

    This is a really cute little bach tucked in amongst the trees with lots of bellbird song. It is little, but well equipped for the two of us. It would be good to have additional photos on the website, so people can see what they're getting - I was a bit dubious before we got there since we couldn't see it - but I thought it good value for the price, clean and tidy and would stay again.

    location is good close to the lake, the wee Bach is a small space so good for a couple or friends two people was just right.I thought there was a fire place and would've changed my mind if I knew there was no fire. mattresses were great , easy to heat, bring a decent pan and can opener, oven doesn't work. we cleaned ourselves didn't take long as it's small overall a good experience Thanks

  • Overall was fairly comfortable

    Overall was fairly comfortable. Hot water cylinder needs a capacity upgrade though as runs cold fairly quickly. Two of us stayed, so I would imagine a third person would freeze to death.
