We booked this place for a family gathering to celebrate my husband’s 50th birthday, and it was perfect for us. It combined the luxury we were seeking for such an occasion, with a beautiful rural outlook, and it was well and truly big enough for all eight of us (including Maisie, our cocker spaniel).
When we first arrived, one of my daughters (who is 21 :) stood at the bay window of the main living area, and asked if we could live here!
All contact with the owners was prompt, courteous, and very accommodating, and we checked in and out with no hassles whatsoever. We loved that the cleaning was all taken care of, so that we could just relax and enjoy our stay.
On the practical side, it was important to some of the university students in our group to have access to wifi (one of them sat an online test while we were there), and it worked perfectly in the main living area. We shopped for groceries in Twizel, which is about 25 minutes away. There are TWO FourSquares there, including a full-sized supermarket, so all our food needs were well-met. I also appreciated the properly appointed kitchen, and was easily able to make a birthday cake, and decorate it!
I highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a luxurious South Island alpine escape.
