About this Holiday House

A beautiful, Chalet constructed with solid beams and chunky timber which gives the impression that it has just evolved from the trees that surround it! The owners have lovingly renovated their dream Chalet "Base Camp". The large living area and kitchen/dining room with its interesting and original beams and architecture give the chalet its quirky character. The living room features a substantial rock-faced fireplace and overstuffed sofas so you can relax after your day on the slopes/sightseeing. Also we now have a fantastic heat pump which seems to warm the place up literally within minutes!! We also have free WIFI, a computer and a home phone for local calls. Base Camp is only a short walk to the center of the village, but is situated in a beautifully quiet and tranquil location. If you listen very carefully you can even hear the odd kiwi at night. There's a wonderfully private and sheltered section for the kids to run around or to have a BBQ (take your own charcoal), and a superb deck upstairs from where you can take in the breathtaking views all around you while you put your feet up at the end of a relaxing day! This is a great place to star gaze the clear night sky surrounded by snow-clad mountains (in the winter) are breathtaking. Also available 42 inch Plasma TV with Sky TV, Neon, Netflix and a Blue tooth Home Theater System, so you can connect to it and play your own music. Its spectacular view isn't all that makes Base Camp special - its the tastefully renovated rooms, the rock fire place and also the artwork -allot of the paintings have been painted individually by the well known (New Zealand) artist and proprietor of the house Patricia Bohny and are available for sale.

Darren
Me and my mates stayed here for 2 nights [ which turned out to be an unexpected 3 due to the SH 73 closing due to bridge wash out] for an escape from the city. House was clean and tidy and simple with everything we needed, lots of good wifi, big tv, soundsystem and plenty of wood to keep the fire roaring. Was like a freezer when we arrived, but soon had it warmed up. Good upstairs/downstairs bedroom arrangements if travelling with 2 families.

Fantastic spot! Perfect timing as it snowed! Woke to 10 - 15cm freshies everywhere. Nice warm fire very cosy, wish I had my one piece ski suit to lounge in.
Nicola
We a family of 5 spent a week here, I was in dreamland, large cozy couches, plenty of blankets, a huge open fire (with safety screen) fire took centre stage of the large living area, we had the most amazing time relaxing and enjoying the wild country side. Fantastic views from the house, comfortable clean living, defiantly a place we would like to come back to, the kids were talking about it all the way back to Christchurch. Thanks Heidi really was amazing. Love the style of the house!
