About this Holiday House

Number 8 is aptly named. We have innovatively re-created all the best bits of our previous Castlehill house in our new build, yet down-scaled in size to create a cosy home from home experience that is easy to be in. It’s resourceful design and interiors reflect all that you require to give you the best possible experience whilst staying in the village winter or summer. Underfloor heating driven by solar means you will never arrive to a cold house in the winter and the house is well positioned for lots of light but will not overheat in the summer months. We have plenty of wet weather options such as games, books and jigsaws for you to use and a good selection of children's toys. Downstairs you enter the house through our boot room/ porch great for storing and drying all the outdoor gear. At this level there are 2 double bedrooms (one with a queen bed and the other with a double bed and a single bunk) offering versatility for our guests. Head on through the shower room/ laundry and you can pop out through the back door to our neatly tucked away outside bath..ideal for the children! In the spacious light filled main room at the front of the house we have an open plan kitchen/ living / dining with views out of every window. The Torlesse Range looks particularly spectacular at Sunset. Sliding doors out to a brazier, BBQ and outside tables and chairs creates a perfect spot to unwind and re-live the days adventures in the summer. In the winter you can cosy up inside by the log burner. Upstairs on our mezzanine we have a second sitting spot with TV screen and Apple TV where you can choose to hook up to your favourite shows. Behind this is a very roomy third bedroom with 4 single built in beds. Pets are welcome. We only ask that you respect our belongings and keep all animals downstairs and off the beds and soft furnishings. We look forward to sharing our family bach in one of our most favourite parts of the world; the Castlehill outstanding area of beauty providing amazing walking, fishing, mountain biking, rock-climbing and skiing. A true kiwi alpine experience.
