  • We had such great time staying at the church

    We had such great time staying at the church. It was a perfect location for us as we had a trip to Gloriavale, Greymouth and Hokitika planned. Stunning location, kids had a blast down at the lake and we loved the church itself. Will definitely be back.

    We had such a good time in the hot tub, chopping wood, walking the short distance to the lake, exploring the forest and creek, snugging up next to the fire, cooking, looking at the freshwater crays and glow worms at night. It is such a special place.
