You have found a nugget of pure gold! Just 13 km north of Alexandra lies rural Springvale. Travel up Golden Road and you're there: A country retreat, a modern house, a landscape in which you can lose yourself, yet find inspiration and peace.

This property ticks all the boxes. Modern, well-appointed and warm Maison D'Or is the ideal holiday home for your stay in Central Otago. Suitable for a large family or group of adults about to embark upon the famous Rail Trail, it is just 6 - 7 minutes from the Trail HQ at the western end of Springvale Road.

The region is famous for its long summer days: warmth and steady conditions allow a full exploration of the region's attractions. Mountain biking trails, four wheel drive adventures, windsurfing or canoeing on Butchers Dam, boating and water skiing on Lake Dunstan, 18 holes of golf (and another 9 hole course at Clyde), tennis at Pioneer Park are just a few of the local activities available.

In winter, the Alexandra Olympic-sized ice rink caters for ice hockey, curling and skating although if the Manorburn dam freezes then this huge area of ice offers an alternative and truly unique open-air skating experience.

A little further afield lie four of the South Island's major ski fields, all within a 1.5 hour commute. The property is within easy reach of the Queenstown airport and the unique alpine destination of the lakeside town itself.

The house is well-appointed with a nor’westerly aspect towards the Dunstan Mountains. Several ranch-sliders provide access from the open-plan kitchen / living area, the lounge and the master bedroom to the extensive patio. The internal access double garage allows for secure car and bicycle storage.

    We have stayed at this property before. A new heat pump has been installed making it even easier to keep warm in the middle of winter.

    This property is absolutely lovely much nicer than a lot of very expensive hotels and motels. The available facilities are very good and the house is very clean. It is in a lovely quiet spot and would highly recommend. The only thing I could suggest is that a mattress topper such as a foam one could be made available as the bed was firm rather than on the soft side. Overall would definitely stay again and host very quick to respond to queries. 10 out of 10 .
