Judy Hawker
We had the most wonderful three night stay. The house is large and well set out. Plenty of heating options. The kitchen is huge and has everything you could think of. Plates, platters, cooking utensils etc. The bathroom room is modern and warm. We stayed in the sleepout and the others, with young children, stayed in the house. Worked perfectly. The huge verandha and grass frontage was fantastic. Everything has been thought of. Location was perfect, rural bit close to Christchurch so family could visit. Great communication from owners. Thank you for sharing lakeside magic.
