  • Situated in historic Arrowtown, a 2 min walk to town' main street.
  • Big section, plenty of room to entertain outdoors, great outdoor furniture.
  • Private, quiet, and a section back from the road.

Traditional older style family crib in the historic heart of Arrowtown. The dwelling has great 'feel' like the cribs we all stayed in as kids with older style furniture & modern appliances & bedding. However - if you are used to modern 5-star accommodation then this crib is probably not for you. If you want value for money, warm with plenty of room, big private quiet section and walking distance to town but an older crib with a family atmosphere then this is the place for you!

We urge you to think carefully to avoid dissapointment on arrival. We have made this self catering to give the families out there somewhere they can afford to stay with a minimum amount of hassel and extra cleaning costs.

It occupies a large, sunny, private section that is child & outdoor-living friendly (however smaller children would still have to be supervised as not completely fenced). The crib is a two block stroll to the village centre/river.

A top of the line recently installed hyper-core heat-pump will give you instant heat or cooling. The crib also has a large efficient woodburner for use if wood is avaliable. We also have "Free-view" television for your relaxation & comfort.

(Please note that this is a self catering and you are required to bring your own linen, clean upon departure and dispose of rubbish).

Special conditions: Please note that there are two bedrooms inside the crib, with the sleepout acting as a third. Two night minimum stay. We ask that guests bring their own linen (sheets, towels, bathmats, tea towels etc). Duvets & pillows supplied. We also require that guests dispose of all rubbish as instructed and leave the crib clean & tidy for the next guests. Smoking is allowed outside only, in light of the fact that children stay often. Deck not suitable for small children, section partially hedged.

    Property great if you are looking for somewhere close to town that's not too expensive. Very comfortable stay with fire and good heating in every room.

  • Our skiing holiday was made great by staying here

    Our skiing holiday was made great by staying here. It was a lovely warm home with the heat pump and the fire. Plenty of space for our group of 6. Loved the fridge and cupboards with some necessities in it, we left some too (hope you enjoy the beers). It’s an easy 7 min walk into town, which has everything bar a butcher! It had everything we needed for a relaxing family break. Nice big yard too! Awesome artwork too :) Thank you very much for our stay!
