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 exactly the sort of place we would have wanted to get away to, and 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.

  • Beautiful cabin away from it all

    Beautiful cabin away from it all. We could only stay one night on our way back south, but we would have prefered to stay longer. Everything was comfortable, tidy, clean, and quiet. We really enjoyed it!

    This is the best cabin I ever stayed in - lots of character, in a great location (in the middle of a beautiful meadow, really isolated from noise, traffic or any other human activities, close to two national parks) yet fully functional, with its own solar powered hot water and electricity from the farm's hydroelectric generator. It was great being able to sleep with the window open and hearing only birds singing, really hope to return for a longer stay in the future.

    We arrived on a very rainy day that has caused little trouble in getting to the Bach. We used the swing bridge to arrive our destination. Steve was extremely helpful. Not only at arrival but also the other days. We love to come back.
