Methven House Rental Photos and Description

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

Situated among the beautiful surrounds of Peel Forest, this cottage is the perfect retreat for a couple, family or small group. Step off the verandah onto the expansive front lawn of the section, boasting 150 year old kahikateas, totara and matai trees, and enjoy the stunning backdrop of the native podocarp forest. The cottage consists of an open plan lounge and dining room leading out onto the verandah accompanied by a kitchen containing all the necessary appliances. With three bedrooms, the cottage can sleep up to 6 people.

The location possesses an abundance of activities. Immerse yourself in the natural environs by walking one of the many bush tracks or trekking to the top of Mt Peel to experience a view of the Canterbury Plains. For those seeking adventure activities, there?s white water rafting and kayaking on the Rangitata?s rapids, a river also renowned for its world class trout fishing. The Peel Forest Café and General Store is located nearby and the town of Geraldine is worth a visit to check out its impressive craft shops, winery and cheese delicatessens, supermarket and chemist - only a 20min drive away. Peel Forest is situated approximately 150kms (1.75 hour drive) south of Christchurch. Minimum stay 2 nights.

NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave; Bring your own linen (towels/sheets/tea towels);

Lovely setting but facilities were quite basic.

Lovely setting but facilities were quite basic. With just two of us the price was quite high. OK for a family with several kids.

Owner's Response: We realise people are entitled to an opinion but we are surprised at the words "quite basic", it suggests the bach has an outside toilet, cooking on stones, showering under a tree. As for the tariff, I would have presumed you checked the other local accommodation and they all start from $140+ per night for 2 people. We think $100 per night for up to 4 people is reasonable and have been told (by guests) it is. We suggest you look at other guest comments for a fairer opinion.
