    We loved this house!! It is so clean and cosy, with lots of character and charm. My kids loved the backyard and the little 'stream' that runs behind the house. The clouds cleared and we had our morning coffee with a fantastic view of the mountains. We'll be back! Thanks so much for finishing our NZ trip on a high note!
