This unique lifestyle property, aptly named "Owls Rest", is a place to unwind and relax. Switch off from the hustle and bustle of your busy life. With a Yurt as your accommodation what more could you need? The adjacent cottage has a fully operational bathroom with a HWC, so hot showers instead of the glamping solar bags!! The indoor/outdoor cooking facilities are almost as good as your own kitchen, everything (except an oven) and the kitchen sink! Stroll around this 20 acre rural retreat and sit at the top of the hill on our special seat to watch the sun rise or sun set. Admire the 360 views of the Manuherikia valley, Manorburn dam, right across to the "Remarkables". See if you can spot our resident Owl in his nesting tree. Enjoy the cosy feel of this amazing Mongolian Yurt that is quaint and relaxing. With the Cental Otago rail trail 5 minutes away, the iconic Chatto creek pub 7 minutes down the road and Clyde a stones' throw away, there are options to spread your wings but return to your cosy retreat at the end of the day.

    Amazing place to stay so relaxing and tranquil the perfect get away retreat. Kate thought of everything anyone could possibly need so tastefully done. Certainly will be going back thank you so much for a much needed break away from it all.

  • This property was awesome, and exactly as described

    This property was awesome, and exactly as described. The location is nice and private, the yurt was extremely comfortable and well equipped. We had pretty average weather over Easter but the wood burner in the yurt did a great job of heating the place up. The cooking, dining, and bathroom facilities are seperate to the yurt. They are quite rudimentary but very well equipped and tidy and add to the 'glamping' experience. We would definitely recommend this place and will certainly go back again

  • Our first time in a yurt and it was great

    Our first time in a yurt and it was great. Spacious living and yet with a cosy feel and in a great location, handy to Alexandra. Great thought has been put into the whole venture, we intend to return.
