Mahina Cottage has just been finished and it is ready to use. The landscaping has been done and now it is time to sit back and watch the native plants grow. Mahina Cottage is situated in the desirable “The Drive” subdivision a short five-minute drive from the busy town of Twizel in the Mackenzie District.

The cottage provides two bedrooms, each with queen sized beds and wardrobes built to accommodate your suitcase. View the stars from your bed with one of the rooms having a skylight. Stunning views of the Ben Ohau Range from the spacious living area and have breakfast on the breakfast bar taking in one of our amazing sunrises. There is a kitchen with microwave, fridge, ceramic cooktop, and all the kitchen ware you need. Complimentary tea, coffee and sugar. Relax in the living area and take in the view of the beautiful Ben Ohau Range or view your own photos by using the HDMI plug available and transmit from your device onto the wall-mounted flat screen TV. Plenty of warmth in this cottage with natural sunlight and a powerful heatpump for those colder days.

Twizel is an up and coming destination with the very popular Alps to Ocean cycleway, fishing/boating lakes close by and Mt Cook on our doorstep. Good grocery shopping available to cook your own meals or treat yourself to great coffee and food from the many cafes and restaurants which cater from young families to fine dining.

If you are into cycling or fishing your hosts, who live next door, can give you personal advice on these aspects.

Special conditions: No smoking allowed inside. This property is fenced but there is no gate, therefore care will need to be taken with young children on the property. Likewise indoors, there are no safety catches on cupboards.

  • Lovely property for alpine and country views of the area and night...

    Lovely property for alpine and country views of the area and night star gazing with low light pollution. Also a good tour break point and the local Damon was delicious.

  • A lovely cottage for those who want to visit Mt

    A lovely cottage for those who want to visit Mt. Cook and the enchanting Lake Pukaki, it is about an hour's drive from the Mt. Cook village but every minute of the drive is worth it. Michele is very responsive and we had no trouble locating the cottage or the key. The cottage is well appointed and comfortable. Certainly value for money.
