About this Holiday House

Now considering booking intentions for the future after we enter into Level 1. All modern upto date facitilies just like a motel, only better, All bed linen included and beds are made up for you. I prepare our house for guests as if it were a "motel " The house is serviced between each booking, but I appreciate you leave the house as you would wish to find it. Our holiday home is situated within the village facing out to the beautiful views of the mountains It completes a family dream as we have been skiing at Mt Cheesesman Ski Club since 1953 and purchased the plot of land at Castle Hill Village in 1981 at the first stage of the village developement. We are direct descendants of the original family who first lived here and operating the Cloudesley Family Hotel and Coach stop during the 1890's Right here at Castle Hill village there are still remains of the grand limestone hotel which sadly burnt down in the early 1900's One of the mountain peaks in the Craigieburn Range , behind the village is named after William J Cloudesley our great grand father and is known as Mt Cloudesley , the Thomas of Thomas River and Thomas Bush is a family christian name. The fifth Thomas Cloudesley {our son} on the 3rd Feb 2009 Thomas was the first of our family to climb the peak to the top of Mt Cloudesley. Our home was completed in December 2006 and purpose designed to be a family ski lodge hence the sleeping areas upstairs on the mezanine and two seperate bedrooms downstairs. There are two WC's wash areas and a seperate shower room.No early morning delay for the bathroom when we are rushing to get "First Tracks" at any of the handy ski areas.In the winter you may rent the house OR I can offer the opportunity for guests to "Rent a Room". As we use the house frequently you may wish to rent your own twin/king room and private facilities at $80 per room and use of all the house facilities I can even offer you "Dinner, Bed and Breakfast". Being a Master Skier Racer I can hostess you to the nearest and best skiing available, some just 20 minutes from the house to the ski area base lift at Porters. In summer time there is never enough time to do all the walks , trail mountain bike tracks , hikes up to the mountain tops, jet boating or 4WD up into the highcounty. We preffer to accept bookings for 2 nights or longer. The house has all the mod cons including electrical appliances, auto washing machine, clothes dryer, dishwasher , Frig/freezer and Chest Freezer. Air Conditioning Heat Pump, Walk-in Drying room for ski gear, Gas BBQ, Sky TV, land line phone, cell phone reception and Internet Broadband Wireless connection. No need to hire bed linen this is included. There are Duvets on all beds, Bed Linen and towels included. Unlike other rental in the village, our house is Fully Serviced after each guest stay, and all beds are fully made up.

This is a beautiful wooden chalet in amazing surroundings below the Castle Crags en route to the Arthur's Pass.Everything is provided to make your stay comfortable and warm, with all needs catered for. The area has lovely walks and interesting landscape features to explore. The hosts have decorated the house with memorabilia and furnishings from their many travels overseas and they have a great book collection. We would recommend staying at Chalet Cloudesley without reservation.
