The house is warm, comfortable and well equipped. The location is perfect - not too far from civilisation(Gore) but remote enough to feel away from the world in a spectacular setting.

Stunning location, really surrounded by amazing views.

Inside, the bach, although it's a simple kiwi building, it's very nicely furnished... We especially thought the linens and bedding were of a great quality! Thanks Liz!
