  • This place was even better than we expected! It was very clean, comfortable and warm (with both a heat pump and wood burner). It had everything we needed and we loved the view over the lake. We would definitely stay again.

    Anna (NZ) - Jun, 2021

  • The unit has excellent views of the lake and mountain range and close enough location to shops and restaurants. Wifi was a decent speed (even with a family of 4 current users in the evenings). My family loved the layout of the space in the unit, the cozy fireplace and the amazing views of the lake and mountain range.

    Freeke (Netherlands) - Jan, 2020

  • This is so far the best stay ever during my NZ trip, it was so cozy and warm, kitchen fully equipped. It was so comfortable that we did not want to go out but stay in the house. Feel like a home!

    Yi (Malaysia) - Dec, 2019

    James (UK) - Dec, 2019

  • Beautiful view of the lake and mountains from the back porch, comfortable beds, open airy feel, well-equipped kitchen, comfortable living area with TV, easy to get around from here, and fun place place all-around. Highly recommended!

    Joseph (USA) - Dec, 2019

  • Although the place is retro as the name implies, everything is in rather amazing condition considering the age of the kitchen and bathroom they were very clean and in very good condition. The thing that really surprised us was the quality of all of the extra touches, such as the high quality of the linens, glasses and crockery and how amazingly well the kitchenware was stocked.

    Paul (NZ) - Jan, 2019

  • Relaxing, wonderful. A wee gem of a place.

    Donald (NZ) - Jun, 2018

  • Beautiful chalet-esque house with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, perfect location - absolutely loved the retro features throughout!
