About Marielle & Mike Craighead
We are Mike and Marielle Craighead. Based in Alexandra, we love Central Otago, so when we were looking for a holiday home for us to use as well as accommodating guests, it made perfect sense for us to buy a property in Central.
Marielle & Mike Craighead purchased this House in 2018
Why Marielle & Mike Craighead chose Naseby
We have always loved Naseby as it is a unique little place in Central Otago. Central is known as "A World of difference" and Naseby is a world all of its own, due to its alpine environment and situation essentially in the middle of a forest. It is quiet, relaxed and many people comment on how it is like Arrowtown used to be! Rich in history, full of character and plenty of things to do right on the doorstep. What's not to love?
What makes this House unique
Naseby is a quiet, relaxed village in the heart of the Maniototo, but don't let the tranquility and peace fool you. There is plenty on offer - year round, so why not stay an extra night: - a very popular and safe swimming dam; - some of Central's best walking and cycling tracks and trails; - some of the finest fishing spots are only a few minute's drive away; - 4 wheel drive adventures; - sled dogging; - winter ice skating; - winter luge (and the summer luge is coming!); - international standard all-year-round curling rink; - only 10 minutes from Ranfurly and the rail trail; - easy travel to other Maniototo gems and only an hour to Alexandra; - golf club minutes away; - fantastic eateries just a few minutes' stroll away.

Stayed in April for the 12 hour mountain bike race. Cold weather but great heating with wood fire, heat pump and electric blankets. Good garage space for storing the bikes. Really good shower pressure & temperature. Would stay here again.
Thanks for your feedback! We are so glad you found the place warm and comfortable!
Nice, tidy and cosy
Loved it and had a great weekend. Check out the tree that’s been hit by lightning nearby you’ll find it.
Glad you loved it!
Excellent wee bach for a family weekend away
Perfectly equipped for a weekend away. Cottage is on the edge of the park, so ideal for relaxing and watching the kids play. House was spotless in side and very comfortable. Thank you for a lovely stay.
Thanks! So glad you enjoyed your stay.
A mountain biking mecca, the Naseby Forest has numerous trails, ranging from beginner to expert. Great fun for the whole family.
Kombi Cottage is located beside the playground and a small BMX track - you don't have to leave your chair on the deck to keep an eye on the kids!
