Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.
Sparkling clean16 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.

Please look at our cottage as a destination not just a bed for the night. You will wish you had stayed two or three nights! Our lovely self contained 3 bedroom cottage (sleeps 5 maximum) located on the Twizel River. A short 7 minute walk to the centre of town. 7300 square metres of landscaped grounds. Close to town but feels like you are in the country. Walking tracks and cycleways at the gate. Please be aware that this is a smoke free property. Thanks

The place stands alone with great privacy but walkable to town center. A beautiful grass and walking way just in front of the house along a small river. Totally recommend to all travelers.

Great location, great host. Twizel is small and friendly and excellent access to mount cook and surrounding area (you can see mount cook from the house) . A lovely river runs at the back of the vast gardens. Perfect location - peaceful and tranquil. Karen

We had a wonderful time staying at Sheena's cottage. The grounds are beautiful and you can even spot Mt Cook from the garden on a clear day! Thank you Sheena for a lovely stay :)

The cottage is in a great location. The river at the bottom of the garden and a short walk to the shops. The house is very well equipped and clean. We had a very good night sleep.
