About this Holiday House

This cosy cottage is nestled in native bush just 5 minute’s walk from beautiful Lake Rotoiti, a favourite spot for sailing, fishing, swimming and other water-sports. The cottage has a sunroom, which looks out to the St Arnaud range close by rising to over 1,800m and the lounge has a log burner for keeping snug. There is an abundance of short walks and tramps, some of which offer spectacular views. Close by is one of New Zealand’s ‘Land Islands’, being an area where intensive predator control has resulted in an abundance of birdlife. For the more energised, the park offers a wide range of tramping experience, ranging from short day trips to expeditions of several days with ample alpine experience for those who want it. There are mountain bike trails, a gliding club, a golf course, and hunting opportunities, all nearby. Lake Rotoiti is close to Rainbow ski-field, the Marlborough wine region, and Nelson. It is under 2 hour’s drive to the Picton ferry, and less than 1 ½ hours to Nelson and Blenheim airports. While we allow pets, please note that these are forbidden from the adjacent National Park. The cottage is ‘winterised’ from April to October, requiring guests to follow a clearly documented list of instructions on arriving and leaving, for draining the water system. There is a well-equipped shop in the village, a short walk away. Special conditions: Prices indicated are per night (for two adults). Children aged 15 or under are free. Please show number of children 15 and under as zero, but let us know about them in your booking request. Extra adults are charged $20 per person per night. 15% discount on stays of 5 nights or more. Smoking outside only. NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave; Bring your own linen (towels/sheets/tea towels)
