Anna and Maarten have created an architecturally beautiful guest house, with all of the amenities. It mixes minimalist style with Hygge creativity to create a wonderful homey space. It is a short walk to Arrowtown and all that this amazing township has to offer in the way of cafes, restaurants and sightseeing. It even snowed for us!!! Anna is a wonderful, considerate host, who made our stay warm and welcoming - and provided a treasure trove of beautiful goodies. This wasn't just a place to stay, this was a truly memorable experience.

Anna's quite little studio is superbly placed to take in everything Arrowtown has to offer. Far enough away from the main street so that it's nice and quiet, yet a five-minute walk to everything. The place itself is modern, small and well appointed. The view to the Arrowtown hills is spectacular. Would recommend Anna's quirky place!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Anna & Maarten. The Hut is very cleverly designed and in a brilliant location - easy walking distance to the village & river trails. We intend returning & that is the best recommendation possible. Thank you again Anna & Maarten.

Thanks to Anna and Maarten for an exceptional experience. The 'river hut' is an amazing and clever bit of design enhanced by the hosts and their thoughtful touches. Can't recommend this highly enough
