Little Gem in Makarora
Beautiful strawbale house, incredibly cozy with a fantastic open fire to keep the house warm. We came knowing it was going to be torrential rain. What we also got was the amazing thunder rolling around the mountains and a lightning show. The river is swollen bank to bank so no hope of fishing, but have a good book so no worries there.
Super comfortable bed. We did bring an additional duvet which I am glad we did.
A microwave would be a great addition to the kitchen.
Well equipped kitchen otherwise.
We will definitely be back again. Loved it
Loved house and area
Loved house and grounds but shocked to pay a service fee when house keeping was limited. E.g inside fridge dirty, toothbrush in shower, dirty glass beside bathroom basin, bedroom floor not vacuumed or cleaned.
Great spot! A very private property surrounded by trees.
We loved that we could take our two dogs along with us. The big open fire was a real treat. We would definitely come back to stay.
Lovely place, felt secluded from the world which was nice.
Full privacy from strangers; you can keep all the curtains and doors open and not have a worry over anyone seeing you!
Spacious home. One bedroom and the other bed is in the living room but still had big living room & dining area.
Plenty of DVDs and board games to keep you occupied.
Having a fireplace is one of my fav things!
Absolutely beautiful drive to the place if driving by lake wanaka&hawea.
While its in the middle of nowhere and you have a massive outdoor area for yourselves, highway is so close that you always hear cars driving by. Didnt feel like I was in the nature as I wished to be.
Full glass window in the shower/toilet visible from the garden area. Wouldnt be so bad if i was with my partner but family/friends trip? little awkward if someone decided to go out to the garden while i was showering/pooping!
No coffee. Take your coffee with you just in case! We got so used to places always being fully stocked on coffee we didn't take any.. We suffered very much as we are all caffeine addicts! We did many trips to the cafes nearby.
Their duvets and bath mats couldve used a wash.. It has a funny smell.
But overall, I enjoyed my stay and wouldn't mind going back!
Had a great family holiday and the cottage is amazing with lots to explore just on the property as well as the local area
