Sparkling clean13 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.

My place is close to outdoor activties as we are on the side of a mountain 20mins from the skifield with hiking at the back door. You’ll love my place because of It is a Log Chalet with an unusual spacious internal design, the location is fantastic for those who value the outdoors, peace and privacy. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers. Obviously mountains in NZ do not exist in townships. We do not have any shops here.
Both Hanmer Springs and Kaikoura are approx an hours drive.

Stephanie welcomed us very warmly into her lovely home and was the perfect host. The location is stunning - very remote and some interesting(!!) roads to get to it. Overall a great experience and we only wish that we could have stayed longer.

We really enjoyed our stay. The space is beautiful as is the landscape around the house. The room was spotless and we had such a relaxing time. This was definitely a five star experience and would thoroughly recommend.
