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.

    This wee gem is a must do for those who love glamping and/or yurt accommodation. Conveniently situated between Alexandra and Clyde, but totally private and secluded, the property is immaculately presented, and no detail has been forgotten. Our first yurt experience will be remembered with fondness forever.
