  • The river is right by your cabin for swimming or taking a walk in. Big pools to cool off or play in
  • Your Log Cabin is fully self contained and totally private. Set on 50 acres in a quiet valley.
  • The property is bordered by National Park, so take a walk and discover the beauty of nature.

Triple Tui's log cabin is stunning inside and out, natural wood furnishings and the comfort of being totally self contained for short breaks or longer holiday stays. We are eco friendly and are totally off the grid, running our own hydro electricity and solar water heating, so our carbon footprint is very small. This does not mean, however, that we have skimped on comfort or style. If you love nature and the outdoors you will love it here with us. Come prepared for the peace and quiet of being surrounded by beautiful native NZ. Our Log Cabin backs on to Kahurangi National Park, it is in a secluded setting for complete privacy, and is set on a 50 acre working lifestyle farm with sheep. The Little Hope river runs through the property with plenty of swimming holes and stunning waterfalls. Bush and river walks for all levels of fitness. Near to great fly fishing spots - Steve is available to take you either fishing or deer/chamois hunting - inquire as to his great rates. Near to the best whitewater rafting in NZ, Nelson Lakes National Park for walking/tramping and there is horse riding just up the road.

If you are a city dweller and need to get away to catch your breath and rediscover you, then this is the place. When we lived in central Auckland this is the exact place we would have wanted to get away to, we built it with this in mind. Only an hour south of Nelson, easily accessible and plenty to do in the area.

You will not be disturbed by your cell phone or internet as there is no reception here, so relax and be prepared to unwind and discover how much you can love the country life. We do and hope you will too.

Special conditions: Sutiable for children BUT you must be responsible for them at all times as the deck/river/water are not fenced. Suits adventurous nature loving families. If any gate is closed please close it again behind you, if it is open, leave it open behind you. Smoking is permitted outside the cabin only. Small dogs permitted, but not inside the cabin and with prior approval only.

  • What a special place this bach is- very private and quiet location

    What a special place this bach is- very private and quiet location. Clean, modern and comfortable bach with its own unique flavour and everything you need. We were a family of four with two teenage children but this bach still accommodated us well.

    Thanks for the stay, amazing being off the grid which seems to be so hard these days with cell phone and wifi coverage everywhere. We were 3 guys and made it work but would certainly recommend this log cabin for a couple that want to relax and the drive through the river to get there was awesome. Will definitely be back but with my partner. Thanks again. Nicholas

    A great property, very clean and super comfortable. Photos don't do it full justice. A short walk from the main house so you are very much private from the rest of the property. The sound of the river that run near the house was great to rock you off to sleep at night. 100% will stay again when next in the area
