The place surpassed our expectations. Our family plus my mother stayed (3 adults and 2 children) and we had ample room/space. The place is a marvellous mix of modern comfort but keeps the miners cottage history. The location is excellent: only 4-5 mins walk to the centre of Arrowtown. The pictures do not do it justice. Totally recommend!! We hope to stay here again someday.
This place is fantastic! The pictures do not do it justice. Comfortable, inviting, spectacular setting and views and only a couple of minutes walk into the town centre (and the Fork and Tap!). Thanks!
This house is amazing! The pictures do not do it justice. There were three adults, two children, and one infant, but we never felt crowded. The house is spacious and well appointed with beautiful linens on the beds and plenty of space to spread out. The master bedroom is huge and the bed was so comfy I was very hesitant to leave it every morning. The kitchen is wonderful and has everything you could need to cook during your holiday. We will definitely be staying here on our next trip to Arrowtown.
