  • Loved the place

    Loved the place. Has everything you need, is much more spacious than I had imagined and the location and peacefulness are next to none. Would definitely recommend.

  • Amazing location next to the river

    Amazing location next to the river. It's great to be out of the way of the crowds. The house is a basic kiwi bach. It's comfortable and clean. Excellent value for money. Nice sized back yard with lots of chairs and room for the kids.

    Great location for traveling around Wanaka, very spacious, well equipped, clean and cosy, especially with the nice fireplace. Oh, and an excellent wifi too :-)

  • Loved the location and ambience

    Loved the location and ambience. The size inside was better than anticipated and there was everything there that you could ever need , though we brought everything anyway. My only criticism would be that as in most baches there is so very little cupboard space for hanging clothes, especially in main bedroom. We were there long enough to need hanging space , oh and pantry space as well, at least one shelf. On the whole this a fabulous cottage and we really enjoyed our stay , very comfortable.
