About this Holiday House

A beautiful modern house in the alpine village of St. Arnaud. Built in 2020 with tasteful interior and high spec insulation so you'll stay toasty and warm even on the coldest winter nights. The kitchen, dining and living area is open plan and spacious with both a cosy log burner as well as a heat pump if you need a quick blast of warmth. These rooms all bask in the afternoon sun but you'll find a range of books and games as well as a keyboard and guitar to keep you entertained once the sun goes down. There are two bedrooms and off the lounge is another room that can be a third bedroom if required, as it has a sofa bed. We mainly use this as a yoga and music room. The bathroom has a shower and toilet plus there is another loo in the laundry. Positioned to maximise the afternoon sun, you can sit on the deck with a wine in hand, watching the sky change colour as the sun sets in the distance. There is even an outdoor fire with pizza oven, which is a perfect place to relax after a day in the outdoors. Sorry, we don't have a TV or wifi but there is good cell phone reception and a bluetooth speaker - plus plenty of birdsong to listen to! Linen supplied and professionally cleaned after every stay.

Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

St Arnaud is right on the edge of the spectacular Nelson Lakes National Park. Being located 600m above sealevel means it has a true four season, alpine climate. Summers are perfect for boating and swimming in the lake. The walks in the area are spectacular - check out the Mt Robert Loop track for one of the best day walks in NZ! Plus there are lots of short walks for all abilities. The mountain biking is fantastic - a whole range of rides are in the Teetotal area and more challenging rides are in the Beeby's Knob and Maitlands Ridge area. All with incredible scenery of course! The winters in St. Arnaud are special. You can ski at the family-friendly Rainbow Ski Area, iceskate on the Teetotal Ponds, or head up Mt. Robert and build a snowman. The frosts are incredible when the conditions are right and occasionally it snows right down to the village. A stunning, peaceful place to visit all year round, to reconnect with nature and with your family. Follow this link for more information about the area:

Such a perfect spot as a base for day walks , swimming and biking. A beautiful warm modern house with fabulous mountain views, we just loved it here. Thanks .
My friends and I had a wonderful stay here. The place is very modern and warm with excellent amenities - the outdoors pizza oven was a hit! There was plentiful cookware and a good range of oils/spices available to cook with, as well as a good selection of books and games. There's not much more we could have asked for. I'd like to especially call out the host for her exceptional service. I left my coffee grinder behind, and she followed through on finding the grinder and shipping it to me. Thanks once again - you truly went above and beyond here!
