Description

This country home is warm and comfy with a freestanding woodburner plenty of room, views, lots of parking and ample to explore. Western Southland has loads to offer, if you're looking for something more exhilarating like a jet boat ride down the Wairaurahiri South coast through 27km of grade 3 rapids or chill out and try your hand at catching a southern brown trout. If you want to try a spot of hunting stay the night at the southernmost Waitutu Lodge. If you like mountain biking, walking or 4wd try Bald Hill, 47 kilometres return climbs through Longwood Forest to the very top of Bald Hill one of the best lookout points in Southland with views of Fiordland and Stewart Island also we have the Mount Linton Muster this annual one day event is a chance to see the station either walking, running or by mountain bike. Golf, Otautau has an undulating 9 hole course which takes a little more energy than some flat courses, well worth a look. For a more flatter terrain Drummond Golf Course is less than 10mins drive. Templeton Flax Mill Heritage Museum is New Zealand's only authentic flax mill plant operating on it's original site since the 1940s. Te Hikoi Museum is South's ultimate heritage attraction. Relive the historic events aboard the sailing ship theatre. Clifden caves and bridge are a must do. These limestone caves are an awesome underground adventure and just around the corner is the suspension bridge which was built in 1899, this iron bridge was used to cross the Waiau river. The bridge has been accessible to pedestrians only since 1978.

    As there were seven adults and one child, we needed a large space. This was ideal. It was homely and comfortable, and cosy when we cranked up the fire. We loved the rural setting and wished we had more time to explore the area.

    The location is wonderful for a great nights sleep - dark and quiet. It even has a small supermarket nearby - within walking distance. Lots of places to walk and a lovely picnic area close by. The house has everything you could possibly need. Its cosy and warm with the fire going (I happened to arrive as the temperature plummeted), its spacious and homely. A lovely back lawn with a rural outlook.

  • Lovely old roomy villa

    Lovely old roomy villa. Very comfortable and clean. Location and property was ideal for our family to stay so we could visit other family living in the area. Well suited for family stays with spacious bedrooms and good sized living area.

    A very large place, well stocked, quiet. Possibly could do with wifi, but Spark and Vodafone 3G working.
