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.

  • The location is lovely

    The location is lovely. Youcan hear the SH8, which was a little noisy, but that was mainly due to the number of motorbikes around that weekend due to the Vincent rally. The yurt is lovely, and very relaxing. There is everything you need, over and above a normal camping experience. eg toaster, microwave, full size fridge freezer, kettle etc,.. We had a lovely time, and its nice to be able to take just a short drive to get into Alex or eat at the Chatto creek pub. go and relax!!

    Such a wonderful place, so thankful the owners have decided to share this with others. Great location, peaceful, private with everything you could possibly need and more. Definitely glamorous camping, just what we needed to relax and recharge.

    A great location, which was off the main road, quiet and private but handy to Alexandra. Enjoyed the space.
