Great for our family group

  • 5 of 5

Ollies was perfect for our group of 4 adults and 4 kids. Heating was great and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals for hungry skiers. The multiple dvd players also avoided "tricky compromises" about which movie to watch.Bathroom was clean and updated. We will be back.

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place for a weekend getaway. House was tidy, well furnished and had everything we needed for a family weekend away. Particularly liked the outside deck- great spot to watch the sunset over the mountains. Instructions were provided for all the necessary appliances and the town was a good base for a day trip to the snow. Already planning our next trip here.

Lovely stay in a quiet location, the town is like going back in time. Nice tidy house.

  • 5 of 5

Family and I had a trip to ski and had a great time skiing. House was warm and cozy, fire easy to start. The location is very very quiet and peaceful, the birds and rain on the roof is about as much as you hear.

Small issue with tripped fuse from an appliance, left note for Lyn to sort out.

Easy to gain access and the place was clean and tidy on arrival. Very homely feel.

Great area, we saw about 30 brumbies together in the mountains.

Mt Selwyn is great for kids learning to ski and lots of snow this year.

Thanks for letting us stay in your house.
