The cottage is very comfortable and well appointed. We loved our stay there. The surrounding countryside is very picturesque. We look forward to returning!
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!
the property had everything we needed, and not too far from the nearest town.
Spotless property, very well equipped in a truly beautiful location.
The owners were so helpful in making enough beds for all of our group, and it was warm and cosy, and stunning country.
