What a great big property with a wood burner that kept the entire house warm.

  • 3 of 5

What a great big property with a wood burner that kept the entire house warm. A wonderful isolated location with an amazing view of the night sky. Unfortunately there was zero wifi for our stay so we were in the dark about important roading info and the fact that Arthur's Pass was closed the following morning. I also needed to clean two of the toilets before we used them... which was unfortunate.

Owner's Response: I'm at a loss to explain what went wrong here. We pride ourselves in presenting our property in immaculately clean condition. Yes, our rural telecommunications can be difficult in stormy conditions, a situation beyond our control and bathroom windows accidentally left open in wild , windy conditions can cause the toilets below to coat in dust and grit. We regret we happened to be away at the time of your visit. We could have easily attended to these issues for you.

Such a great property.

  • 5 of 5

Such a great property...away from the town but close enough to Mt Hutt to make skiing easy. The place was spacious and clean...with plenty of firewood so we stayed nice and warm. We will be back next year.
