About this Holiday House

Guest have described this house as lovely, warm, comfortable, family-friendly and fully equipped, with plenty of extras! It is clean, has spacious rooms and free WiFi. The updated bathroom has a "fantastic" large shower. The location is “excellent”. Restaurants, shops and pubs are located only a few steps from the back gate. Cleanliness is important to us, as you can see from our reviews, however during this COVID19 time we are taking extra care with cleaning and disinfecting, so you can expect to stay in a safe and clean home. All high touch surfaces are carefully cleaned and disinfected between guests. Cleaning products are available for guests to use during their stay, so they have peace of mind. We are also regularly decluttering and spring-cleaning the house, making sure everything is clean. Guests are welcome to bring their own linen and bedding. All guest interaction is contactless, keys are kept in a lockbox for easy access and self-check-in. We are also very flexible with cancellations, full refunds are given up to a week before your stay, and sometimes even later depending on the situation. This house has two spacious bedrooms with a queen bed in each. One room has books, a DVD player and an old TV and the other has a radio. The third bedroom in the house has four single bunk beds with a cupboard full of kids toys for various ages and a PlayStation II with games for young and old. The fourth room (sleep-out or outside room) is located just outside the back door connected to the garage, this is a private room with a double futon bed and two single bunk beds. A portable cot with a spare mattress, a baby bath, a high chair and baby toys are also available for your babies use. The hot water is heated by gas so you will not run out of hot showers. The large night store heater warms the passage and bedrooms (during winter) and an installed heater gives instant heat to the lounge and open plan kitchen (no need to light fires and wait for the warmth). Oil heaters, electric blankets (on most lower beds) and extra blankets are available for extra warmth! The kitchen is fully equipped with most required equipment to make a meal or even bake a cake. The lounge has a large 55inch flat screen TV with freeview and a satellite dish is available if you want to bring your own sky decoder. There are also games, puzzles and a DVD player with numerous DVD's for your entertainment. Enjoy a BBQ in the peaceful large beautiful garden or on a recently renovated large deck and seating area. It is a private fenced-off property with plenty of parking space, enough to park two boats or trailers and a few cars behind closed gates. The long drive-way is a double lane so is easily accessible, yet off the main road. There is a spare small fridge/freezer and a large freezer in the garage if required. To keep busy there are also balls, soccer nets, a basket ball hoop, various sized older bikes with helmets, tennis racquets, kids ride-on and a sleigh for those trips to the snow slopes. Less than 1 minutes walk from tennis courts, squash courts, library, skate park, swimming pool (summer) and kids park. It is also close to Twizel river walks and various cycle trails. It is 40 minutes drive from Mount Cook National Park and all its walks (open all year round unless being worked on), a 10 minutes drive from Lake Pukaki and 45 minutes drive to Lake Tekapo.

Comfortable and quiet, everything that is needed for a great stay. Will be staying again in the future
Great house, so well equipped for families. Our kids enjoyed having games to play and DVDs to watch...and the bikes to borrow were a great added bonus! Lovely friendly owner to deal with too. Thank you.
Lovely house, nice and warm even after a frosty night. Comfortable lounge, amazing shower and all amenities you need close by.
