Peel Forest House Rental Photos and Description

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 5)

Hear the native birds and the sound of the water running through the creek. Surrounded by native bush this nostalgic Kiwi bach is full of character. Sit on the porch or in the garden and relax. Have a barbie on the deck while kids can hide out in the tree hut, have a swing, climb the rope ladder or explore the Kowhai stream - just down the back.

Beautiful bush walks on the doorstep, Peel Forest is a native reserve showing some of New Zealand?s most spectacular ancient podocarp forest. See the 1000 year old Totara or walk to the waterfalls. Experience the view of the Canterbury Plains from the top of Little Mount Peel. Walks range from 20 minutes to 6 hours.

The nearby Rangitata River is renowned for its world class fishing of Chinook salmon, brown trout, and rainbow trout. Local companies offer kayaking, abseiling or white water rafting on the Rangitata?s grade 5 rapids.

The bach consists of an open plan living space with French doors opening onto a front porch. The kitchen leads out onto another large deck. There is one double bedroom, one bedroom with two single beds, an adjacent sleepout with a double bed.

Magic location away from it all. Property is a retro blast - just as a proper kiwi bach should be - crammed with memorabilia and nostalgia.

This place is an absolute gem!

  • 5 of 5

This place is an absolute gem! Full of charm and character, warm, clean and stocked with everything you need for a great break. Wonderful walks on the doorstep, surrounded by birds and bush. Loved discovering the house's many treasures - the hidden meadow out back, the tree house and bird feeders, and the wonderful collection of books and records. Thanks for a memorable holiday.
