WOW. Our family had a holiday we will never forget in this luxurious but relaxing holiday home in a beautifully remote location. An immaculate and lovingly cared for property with views that leave you speechless. Surely one of, if not the best, properties in South Canterbury/North Otago.

An absolutely beautiful house with the most stunning view. Our stay was perfect and even the weather cooperated. We enjoyed relaxing, swimming and walks in the nearby mountains and daytrips to Alexandra and Oamaru. A wonderfully relaxing summer holiday and we look forward to staying again.
