The owners have had 20 years experience with owning and managing property on the shores of Lake Jindabyne in the Snowy Mountains region of Australia. They now bring their love of fly fishing, gardening and alpine habitat to Oreti River House.

Marina and Roger Lindsay purchased this house in 2008

Where can you combine a few good hours gardening followed by a couple of hours fly fishing in the long hours of evening characteristic of the short latitudes? Add in beautiful scenery, clear aqua blue water, big brown trout and a friendly town. Truly a fly fishing paradise!

Oreti River House has been extensively renovated to a very high standard. Granite kitchen, modern bathrooms and comfortable beds make it a very pleasant 'home away from home'. The position of the house facing the big landscaped garden allows for long evenings looking up at the distant mountains -or enjoying the unique New Zealand native plants which are growing in the large garden.

The house is only a short drive from Queenstown, Arrowtown, Invercargill and Te Anau which makes it centrally located to some of New Zealand's most popular destinations.

Oreti River House is also only a short walk from a supermarket with bottle shop, pharmacy, restaurants and bakery. It is very private as the garden and house are enclosed by mature, thick hedges.

A very well thought out property with consideration given to everything we could ask for. We were able to just sit and relax after a short stroll to the supermarket and "crash" in front of a movie from the wide video selection which offered something suitable for everyone in our family. The rooms were tastefully decorated and bathrooms great size. We enjoyed time out in the garden as well, getting some ideas for our place! The property was easy to find yet still felt hidden away. Proximity to the park would be great for families with younger ones, although the enclosed backyard means you don't need to go anywhere. Thank you for a wonderful contribution to our South Island holiday. We do hope to be back.

Oreti River House has certainly set a benchmark in

  • Submitted: Dec 10, 2012
  • Stayed: Feb 2012
Our stay was enjoyable and you have a very comfortable home which enhanced our trip. The quality of the fittings and the surprising details such as needles, cotton and buttons, dvd's, fishing information folder etc all helped to make our fishing trip very pleasurable. Oreti River House has certainly set a benchmark in accommodation, that I suspect will be rarely equaled.

The fishing was a little challenging with wet conditions and high water levels. Nevertheless we did get fish up to approx 10lb with some sight fishing on a couple of sunny days. We had a few enjoyable days catching rainbows to 5lb surrounded by magic scenery on the Von.

I will certainly recommend the Oreti River House to friends. I fish in NZ yearly so will book it again myself!

A very special house for a Southland holiday base”

  • Submitted: Dec 10, 2012
  • Stayed: Apr 2012
Whether you are fishing or just visiting the patchwork splendor of New Zealand's Southland, this house would have to be a benchmark for good value, high quality accommodation. The whole house exudes a quality restoration, and is situated in a lovely garden setting.
We took full advantage of the gourmet kitchen & stocked up in Gore with local produce & wines of all varieties that NZ is increasingly famous for- all sub $20 kiwi a bottle!!
If like us you love to chase trout, then you are spoilt for choice with numerous rivers nearby, aided by the excellent NZ Fish & Game maps of the region.
A lovely base for a Southland holiday, & so close to Melb or Syd via direct flights to Queenstown!

Beautiful and Comfortable House

  • Submitted: Feb 13, 0002
  • Stayed: Sep 2012
The house has recently been renovated to a high standard with all modern fittings. The lovely kitchen is well equipped for self catering and the dining area nice and spacious. The comfy lounge is well set up for evenings in with a selection of movies and sky TV in front of a great remote controlled gas fire. The wifi internet is excellent. Both bathrooms are modern with great hot showers and under floor heating in the main bathroom. The laundry is an added bonus and the bedrooms are tastefully furnished with luxurious beds. The electric blankets and heat pump make it lovely and warm even on the coldest nights and days of winter. The house is kept to an extremely high standard throughout both in terms of cleanliness and comfort. The garden has been lovingly tended and would be perfect for BBQ's in the summer months.

The little contact I had with the owners and the manager was easy and friendly - it's a great place to stay and relax. Highly recommended!!

Oreti River House is located in the country town of Lumsden on the South Island of New Zealand. It is the perfect location to enjoy fly fishing, cycling, walking, golf and various scenic tourist activities.

Lumsden is a short drive ( less than 1 hour) from two Airports- Queenstown and Invercargill. Both Airports have International and Domestic flights and vehicle hire services. Lumsden is centrally located to many of Southlands most picturesque areas and also within a short drive to over 35 rivers, streams, burns and lakes. It is the middle stop on the 5 day Around The Mountains Cycle Trail.

The drive to Lumsden from either Airport is scenic and fairly straightforward. In particular the drive from Queenstown Airport is especially enjoyable as it travels along the edges of Lake Wakatipu before continuing through wide, green glacial plains spotted with sheep and deer, surrounded by towering mountains.

The trip will cross the upper Mataura River which will give your first view of this 'gin clear' waterway. It is a perfect fly fishing river and this upper section shows regular pools, ripples and water flowing over colorful glacial pebbles.

Nearer to Lumsden you will travel along the edges of the middle section of the famous aqua blue Oreti River- showing its braided river bed, deep pools, shadowy undercuts and long ripples. The drive will show many aspects of the magnificent scenery that makes up this beautiful part of New Zealand.
