About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 5)

Our wee Twizel house is a treasure resurrected from the Hydro Lakes and Canals Project from the 70s - lovingly restored and refurbished to make it a gorgeous, fun property to rent on your Mackenzie High Country holiday.

A clever mix of old and new furnishings makes your stay completely unique from anything else the town has to offer....on entering the blue front door, you will think you've stepped back in time with real retro decor and furniture to curl up on at the end of a busy day.

Two different themed Queen size bedrooms make your choice of sleeping arrangement difficult....a lovely peaceful blue room is the epitome of summer living - sun streaming in late afternoon, where you can curl up with a good mag and refreshment while the kids play out in the grassey back yard area....bliss !!

The second room is also fab....creative use of a small space (thank you George Clarke!) enables a really cool loft-style single bed above a gorgeous comfy patchwork queensize bed ....there are bound to be fights in this room who sleeps on the top bunk !!

If you thought the lounge was cool, wait till you see the kitchen...groovy baby....formica table, 70s pottery dinnerware...all that's missing is the fondue set !!

....and the bathroom is not boring either...a wet floor shower area enables spacious ablutions with some quirky decor to make you smile:)

We love to showcase our lovely Hydro town - a definate family oriented town - perfect to park the car up for the duration of your holiday, and it is literally a 5 min walk to all the main attractions...cafes, restaurants, tennis courts, skatepark, swimming pool, golf course, and mini golf course, supermarkets, playgrounds, and town centre.

For more active recreation, a 10 min drive to three nearby lakes - Ruataniwha, Benmore and Ohau will provide awesome water sport and fishing opportunities. Alps to Ocean Cycle Trail provides spectacular scenery on 2 wheels - ask your hosts about this.

We'll see you soon :)

- Smoking outside only, but collection of cigarette butts will incur extra cleaning fees - be aware of high fire danger in summer months

Soon as I open the door, I could hear music is playing on the radio which it kind of, don't know why but, made me feel like "I'm home"

Place is like ,maybe, true Kiwi style "home sweet home"

Spacious enough for 4 of us. (4 adults)

Got almost everything you need for whatever you wish to cook.

Not modern but I don't think anyone would mind.

Convenient location in Twizel, walking distance for supermarket, information center and a restaurant.

The house is very small and the water leaked everywhere from the bathroom.

The house is very small and the water leaked everywhere from the bathroom. The kitchen is pretty dirty as well. Also, they said they have the outdoor spa tub but it's super dirty and you can't use it. I would not recommend staying here.
