    We ended up staying an extra night and would have never left if it weren't for an impending flight. The fire was crackling and warm when we arrived, the kitchen had everything we needed to make ourselves at home and the view is absolutely addictive. The hot tub requires a bit of effort to get going, but it wouldn't have the same satisfaction without it! Couldn't suggest any improvements as it holds its own in every way. Enjoy the magic of the Hidden Valley Church.

  • The entire experience was wonderful

    The entire experience was wonderful. A very quirky place with a very cosy feel. The property was clean and tidy, everything we could have wanted. We will go back and I am already forwarding the property details to friends and family. The property has been renovated tastefully and is in a very quiet, tranquil setting. Thanks for a most wonderful place to stay.

  • So unique

    So unique. What a fun setting. Pauline a jewel. We enjoyed the barbecue perhaps not the sandflies but we should have been more prepared. Our fault entirely. Fun stop for Kiwis and overseas guests!

    Fantastic setting, lovely building well laid out inside with the bedrooms being very warm from fireplace heat. We had a great time, and would stay again. Kids loved it. Great place to stay somewhere peaceful within short drives to Brunner and Greymouth, Punakaiki.
