  • This is the perfect location in Methven! It's completely self-contained, spacious, and cozy. Pauline is an extremely accommodating host, who made sure we had everything we needed throughout our stay. I would highly recommend this location and hope to stay again in the future!

    Jessica2016-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome host and wonderful self contained accommodation - the bed was so comfy we wanted to take it home - we recommend this place highly.

  • Pauline and Peter were very friendly :) Room was great, the best kitchen facility (stove, condiments, bread, eggs, oven, etc. were provided) we had during our 2-week NZ trip, everything worked well...highly recommended. Location was great too as the Mt Hutt ski bus pick-up point is just outside the house.

    Rui Hoong2015-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Polly is a fantastic host and Methven is a wonderfully quiet area with great walks around town and up in the mountains. everything is a close walking distance from the apartment and the views are tremendous!

    Tom2017-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Pauline's apartment in Methven. It was clean, easily accessible and spacious. It was perfectly located to access Mt Hutt. We would definitely recommend staying here : )

    Amy2016-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great experience live here. We can find everything we need, not to speak of the fruits prepared by Pauline. Walking distance to town center. Hope to come back again.

    Harry2016-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Pauline and Pete are a wonderful couple. Very kind, helpful, they gave us some tips that we followed. Polly is a very active woman, she impressed us during the week. Polly picked us up in Ashburton because we didn't have a car and she drove us back to Ashburton one week later. That's why it better if you have your own car when you come to Methven during summer. Pete told us that we could rent a car so we did it. The rental place is located in the i-site which is at 3 minutes by foot from Polly and Pete's place. The accommodation was very nice, cosy, spacious, bright. Everything in, like oven, microwaves. And if you need anything, just ask Polly. In Methven, we went everywhere. We went to the Mont Sunday, where the Lord of the Ring has been played, it's a very beautiful place. Close to Mont Synday, you have different lakes: Clearwater, Emilie and Lake Heron, this one is very amazing, around it you have a walk for different level (1h to 8h of walk), after that we went to the Rakaia Gorges where you can swim (Colin did it, but the water was really cold !)... but the i-site is just what you need to do what you want to do in Methven and around. For us, Methven and Polly and Pete's place was very nice. We enjoyed our stay there. We absolutely recommend Polly's place !

    A beautiful little cottage situated in the heart of a large working farm. Cosy and warm, modern and convenient. We are only 25 minutes from the Mt Hutt access road, Lord of the Rings Film site (Edorus), Lakes and a huge array of beautiful walks.
    A cosy, modern, well equipped farm cottage in the centre of a working sheep station. Stunning mountain views from your bedroom! There are 2 bedrooms downstairs, one with Queen, one single. Upstairs is a large open loft with 1 Queen bed and one double mattress on the floor - perfect for large families!
    Mt Somers is at the entrance to the Hakatere Conservation Park with stunning lakes, walkways and mountain biking in the beautiful NZ High Country. A famous film site from Lord of the Rings is just a short drive away - Edorus. The Mount Somers walkway attracts thousands of visitors each year. In winter, Mt Hutt is only 20 minutes away (to base) and the Staveley Ice Rink only 10 minutes.
  • Kate's farm cottage was the perfect base for a weekend of adventures. The house is so warm and cosy! And the modern kitchen and bathroom mean you really do have everything you need after a big day in the outdoors. We thoroughly enjoyed the tramping on offer on Mt Somers and in the Hakatere Conservation Park, and hope we can return some day soon.

    Jemma2016-06-07T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Kate's for one night, to make ourself well rested on our way driving further south. they have great house with awesome view and environment. Kate and David always respond on every questions. worth the price, and fit for you if you need a peaceful neighborhood.

    Jannatul2015-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Everything at the house was great for our group of 5. The kitchen was well equipped. Plenty of room for a group. We enjoyed the visits from little Lucy (jack russell pup)!

    Emily and Jason2017-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • This place has a lot of potential. Location can't be beat, and the views were stunning. However, it needed a thorough cleaning. For three couples, it was a bit difficult to sort the two beds (one of which was a mattress on the floor) in the loft. Kitchen was great for preparing meals. Grill was not functional. Great value, we would return.

    Brian2016-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • Peaceful, private and well-appointed, this cottage is the perfect combination of cosy and spacious. Plenty of room for our family of four skiing at Mt Hutt. House heated quickly and easily upon our return each evening, with the wood heater in the lounge the star attraction. Wifi, good books to read, Scrabble, the occasional dog to pat and magnificent scenery from every window. What's not to love? Thank you, David and Kate, for making us feel so welcome.

    Liz and Henry2017-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Keep in mind when staying here that you are in the middle of a very large farming community with the nearest grocery store ~ 20-30 minutes away. This is perfect for spending some quiet quality time with the family. The house was cozy and very spacious. The wood burning heater was very efficient when needed - lots of wood available in the garage. The views from the living room, bedrooms and deck were beautiful and peaceful. The house manual Kate provided had lots of useful information regarding the house rules, locations of grocery stores and restaurants. We had minimal interaction with Kate but she did respond to our text messages.

    John2016-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely secluded spot with fantastic views!

    Lara2017-03-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a memorable family Christmas, with fabulous surrounding and majestic Mt Somers in the background. Quiet, comfortable and relaxing. Would love to come back - Thanks Kate.

    Mt Somers, Canterbury, New Zealand

    Our place is close to Mt. Hutt ski field, and Mt. Sunday, the movie site of Edoras; plus bush walks and mountain tracks. You’ll love our place because of the character of a real heritage 1875 cottage lovingly restored. A continental breakfast is included in the price! Our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families. We only have one group at a time, so you won't have to share with other guests.
    Ross Cottage is on a quiet rural road, just off the Scenic Alpine Highway 72. Lovely views of several mountains of the Southern Alps can be seen from the cottage. We would love to guarantee cloud-free days but clouds can hide the mountains! A popular cafe is within easy walking distance. River swimming holes, bushwalks and mountain hiking tracks are nearby. The area has great summer and winter attractions including NZ's best skifield, Mt. Hutt a short distance away. Mt. Sunday, the movie site of Edoras, home to the Rohan people, is in easy reach for a days outing. From our property we look out to lush farm land, Mt. Somers, Mt, Winterslow and Mt. Taylor. The town of Methven is 15 minutes drive away. Here are services relating to the skifield, plus restaurants, supermarket and shops that meet most needs. Ashburton is 30 minutes drive away, providing the facilities of a larger town. The township of Mt. Somers, five minutes away, is a dairy with petrol & diesel available. We offer free wifi, and have good cell phone coverage.
    Staveley is a small settlement with a cafe, public hall, museum and church. Many residents are farmers with dairy cows, cattle and sheep, while also having an interest in tourism and hospitality. This is a popular spot to stop for a coffee at the Cafe, or to start your bush and mountain walks. The Alpine Scenic Highway 72 takes visitors along the foot hills of the Southern Alps, going south to Geraldine, Fairlie and Tekapo.
  • Great one night stay at Paul & Jo’s place. They are amazingly friendly hosts. Perfect communication and very accommodating to my special requests and needs. Thanks a lot!

    Michal2017-10-28T00:00:00Z

    Gabrielle2017-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Don't miss the opportunity to enjoy Paul and Jo's wonderful hospitality and special cottage. We loved the decor, the fire place, the special attention to comfort and amenities. They are wonderful people. Jo is a first class gardener and even sells her plants, so the grounds are beautiful. It is in a lovely rural area where it is quiet and peaceful. Highly recommended accommodation and hosts. We came as strangers and left as friends.

    Ellen2017-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very cost and comfortable cottage in a superb countryside location. Jo and Paul were extremely helpful in providing local information and a very comfortable stay in their lovely cottage. Highly recommended.

    Gyan2017-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Ross Cottage was a beautiful old country house in a quiet village but only 20 mins from Methven - it was super warm & cosy with electric blankets & a great fireplace, & was a fun base for our family ski weekend...thanks Paul & Jo for all efforts, we'll definitely be back next time we're in NZ!

    Paul & Susanna2017-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • We escaped the rain to Paul & Jo's place with my boyfriend and another couple. Sitting by the fireplace, playing with Minnie The Cat, enjoying the scenery and delicious breakfast, curling up in a blanket - it was a perfect stay!

    Ella2017-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is extremely cute, well organized and clean. We had just spent a week in busy holiday parks, so this was the perfect place to have a quiet cozy end to our ski vacation. Paul and Jo's house is close to methven, which was perfect to catch the shuttle to Mt Hutt. I would highly recommend this air bnb to anyone passing through and wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Thank you for sharing such a lovely and affordable accommodation.

    Welcoming,warm, well equipped holiday home in the centre of the small, peaceful town of Mt Somers. Stunning uninterrupted views to the mountains, a great stopover on a South Island tour, just of the scenic highway. The property is clean and well cared for. Conveniently situated just off scenic highway 72, 30 mins from Ashburton, Geraldine, Methven, 70 mins from Christchurch outskirts. UNLIMITED WIFI.
    The spacious open plan living areas of the house make it ideal for groups or families, it is recently decorated and carpeted throughout, and has a bright welcoming feel. We have thoughtfully equipped the house with everything to make your stay a really enjoyable experience, coffee for the espresso machine, toys and dvds for the children, all the little things we would like to find in a holiday house. As owners we take great care to maintain the house to a high standard, it will be very clean, tidy, with freshly made beds and a small gift upon arrival. It is really satisfying to know guests will enjoy their stay, we have had great feedback so far. In winter the large woodburner efficiently heats the main living area, with additional oil filled radiators in bedrooms plus electric blankets on all the beds, a warm and cosy environment after a days skiing. The house is positioned in the centre of the small, old fashioned township of Mt Somers, with the pub, shop, tennis courts, outdoor pool all only minutes walk away. The large level sunny garden is securely fenced, plenty of space for children to play or have a game of backyard cricket. The garden is very peaceful with a stream at the property boundary just beyond the fence, and stunning mountain views.

The area boasts many eco tourism opportunities, mountain biking, tramping, bird watching, sky diving. A series of high country lakes offer great relaxing days out, whether boating, or just sitting lake side reading a book, amidst the stunning scenery. Top quality restaurant Stronechrubie, in Mt Somers for guests to enjoy.
  • We truly enjoyed our stay here and regretted not staying for more than a night because there were many board games that we could have played and a number of dvds to watch! Not to mention the items we discovered at the garage which we could have used had we stay longer. From the house layout to the cosy bedrooms, everything about Sarah's and Richard's listing met way above our expectations. Even our 3 year old daughter enjoyed playing the farm animal toys and train blocks. This is the listing we will definitely want to book when we come to New Zealand again.

    We've got a backpacker's lodge in the middle of a back country sheep & beef station. If you're looking for a quiet place to relax among some of New Zealand's best scenery this is the place. We are located 10 minutes from Peel Forest and great hiking trails.
    We also run a white water rafting company from the lodge so there are staff/customers around most days between 9:00am and 6:00pm. The lodge can accommodate up to 38 people in one night. We have 4 dorm rooms and 2 double rooms (one double has a single bed as well). The kitchen and living/entertainment areas are communal. There are separate men's and women's toilets with showers in each. We have many games and dvds available for rainy days and nights. We offer white water rafting on site for all the adventurers out there. We suggest you bring breakfast, lunch, and dinner groceries along since we are a wee ways away from the nearest store. However, Peel Forest cafe/pub has some really great food. We also provide a free continental breakfast which includes bread, cereal, jam, butter, milk, coffee, tea, and sugar. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask us.
    Because we are located in the middle of a working back country station there are plenty of opportunities to see sheep, cattle, and deer. There is lots of native forest around and a 5km walk will bring you to the Rangitata River.
  • Very clean, warm and friendly. Well set up kitchen and showers had good pressure. Our group of 14 all commented on what a fantastic place it was that was well suited to us. The view of the mountain behind was beautiful and the tweeting of the birds very relaxing.

    Sally 2017-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Friendly host and wonderful set-up. The secluded lodge caters to large groups however we were lucky enough to have it to ourselves. The landscape around was amazing with snowy mountain views and river gorge nearby. Roger had the open fire going when we got there. Beds were comfy, place was clean and coffee was there in the morning.

  • We stayed here two nights! When we arrived the weather there wasn't that good, but inside it was nice and warm because the wood burner was on. There is a great kitchen were you can provide your own meals. The place was very clean and comfortable. The rafting was amazing! Deno was our guide that day! He gave us good instructions and made us fee very safe! At the end of the rafting they provide. A BBQ for us and the best thing was that we could drink a beer because we didn't had to drive any more!

  • Just couldn't ask for a more classy, comfortable pad, and Neroli is a kind and enthusiastic host. No downside to this rental!

    Scott2017-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely loved my stay in Neroli's boutique style annex. Great design and quality linen made for a wonderful nights sleep. Underfloor heating and heat pump made for a very cosy stay when the weather suddenly cooled off. Neroli & Harley were delightful hosts - can't recommend them more! Wish i could have stayed longer!

    carrie2017-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • This place is an absolute gem. Neroli has done a great job a creating a modern well appointed and very nicely decorated get away spot. Neroli was a great host. Would certainly recommend it to anyone. I'm keen to stay again next time I'm in the area.

    Mark2017-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay for one or a couple of nights. Private, separate from main house. Luxurious bathroom and bed. Very kind and helpful host who is happy to show you around her farm and land.

    Marvin2017-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a perfect stay at Neroli's place! The space is a beautiful and comfortable sleep out which has been carefully designed down to every detail. Great little kitchenette with everything you need, an amazing bathroom, and the best bed I've slept in for a long time. Neroli was a wonderful host and we would happily stay again anytime. Also, we got the most incredible view of the milky way from right outside our door!

    Riia2017-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful countryside, lovely setting on a working farm, stunning drive on route. Cottage is detached from the main house, is pristinely clean & comfortable. Would happily return.

  • Great apartment in a quiet location.

    Cameron2017-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Neroli is a very friendly and welcoming host whom made us feel very welcome when we arrived at her sprawling 3000-acre farmhouse. The room is detached from the main house and has sufficient amentities (Ensuite bathroom with heated flooring, cooking area with bar counter seating, satellite TV, sofa, king-sized bed, washer and dryer) such that one could almost actually live there. The space is huge compared to most other BnBs we've been to in New Zealand. We can only think of one improvement to perfect the experience: a wardrobe with hangers. Overall, we had a very pleasant stay and wish we could have stayed a couple more days before hitting the road. Definitely a recommended host and excellent value for money room if you're passing through Mayfield.

    Our cottage is 10 years old, set amongst rural farmland with views of the southern alps , mainly Mt Somers and Mt Hutt. Locally there is biking, fishing, tramping, skiing in season, lakes for boating, hunting. We have varied livestock which guests can interact with including working dogs.
  • Lovely house in a nice quiet location. We had a great stay, heaps of space and plenty of beds to choose from! Nice big kitchen too. Plenty to do in the local area with Peel Forest and Mt Somers close by. Thanks Sue!

    Chloe2017-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Delightful house with great views

    Zaimon2017-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • It is a wonderfully sized house for up to 8 people. It has a lovely warm and sunny aspect and can easily spy Mt Hutt. If you stay in the cooler months be aware that there is no central heating. There is plenty of firewood though if you are good at keeping a good fire going! The property hosts some awesome pigs for kids to be entertained by and some cool chickens. All in all a great stay. A few more cleaning products and a vacuum cleaner would of helped to clean on leaving.

    Located in the rugged Southern Alps, in the headwaters of the Rakaia River, Glenfalloch Station is a great place to escape for a couple of days away from busy life or start or finish your travel before you will depart Canterbury, well off well-travelled tourists routes. Just 90mins from Christchurch Airport or 50 mins from Methven. Glenfalloch is also the base for Methven Heli skiing.
    You need to bring little more than your toothbrush to enjoy your stay in our unique high country property. Whether you simply want to curl up with a book in front of our roaring fire, relax in the summer by the pool, mountain bike through the surrounding countryside, or soak tired muscles in our spa pool, ((additional charge of $50 to cover a smallish amount of the power bill. It will be free of charge for stays for two nights. Please advice when you book if you would like to book the spa pool too) our aim is to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The STAOIN TAIGHT (Tinhouse) is a one bedroom cottage, elegantly decorated with an open plan kitchen dining/living area heated by a cosy fire. We offer the option to be fully catered.
  • We loved our stay! The view was amazing and definitely worth the drive. The house was perfectly set up with more than you would ever need. I loved the bedding, so nice for a chilly night. They were so accomodating even though it was a last minute booking. Definitely a great place to stay and get out of the city!

    Judy2017-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • We arrived just before dark at Chas's place, and was greeted by his wife Dietlind who was very welcoming. There was someone staying in the studio that we had booked, but that was no problem as Dietlind put us in the Brickhouse, which was a HUGE house with two fireplaces. She very kindly offered to make us something to eat but we had brought things with us so we declined. She also offered us beer and wine which was unexpected but very kind. The bed was comfy and warm and the view at dawn was spectacular! I would also recommend braving the cold at night to have a look up at the sky. The lack of light pollution meant we had a great view of the milky way, and even saw a shooting star! All in all it was a great stay, and although I can't speak to what the studio is like, Dietlind was a great host and the Brickhouse was very comfortable and warm. One final note: make sure you get there before it's dark. The directions were very good and we had no trouble but the long and windy dirt road and small fords would be tricky to navigate in the dark!

    Barb2017-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • In a remote part of New Zealand where the scenery is absolutely breathtaking! The accommodation is really nice and has everything you need.

    luke2017-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Glenfalloch Station; we arrived quite late and lights were left on for us to make the cottage easy to find. The views and surrounding area are really incredible. The hot tub at the tin house was being repaired and they very kindly gave us the option of accommodation - we opted to stay at the tin house and were able to use the hot tub at the brick house. The house was well stocked with all kitchen supplies and staples (like milk, tea, coffee, etc), very comfy & cosy bed and a lovely wooden stove with ample firewood. Would certainly stay again. Thank you to our wonderful hosts Chas & Dietlind!

    Vanessa2017-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks to our hosts! We had a wonderful stay at the start of June - wish we had stayed for more than one night. The location/views are spectacular! Just a note for people with small cars - the road in is a pretty standard NZ gravel road but there are a few fords on the way! We made it in a 1999 Mitzi Lancer though :)

    Lauren2017-06-05T00:00:00Z

    Our cottage is on a farm and is close to Mt Hutt ski field, mountain bike tracks, and walking tracks. You’ll love our place because of the fabulous location, the outdoor space, fresh air and mountain views. It's great for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, travelling friends and families (with kids). The cottage looks out to an amazing view of Mt Hutt ski field - it takes 25 minutes to drive from here to the top of the mountain and we live 8kms from Methven township.
    The cottage is separate from the main house, in which we live in, so offers great privacy. There is parking space directly beside the cottage.
    Waking up to the mountains at your doorstep is both refreshing and breathtaking. The cottage over looks part of the farm and you can't see another house in sight. It's a great place to book if you are travelling through the inland scenic route as we are very close to this. Also, if you are here for a ski holiday over winter this would make the perfect place to stay for affordable accommodation.
  • Great country location. Leah was an amazing host

    Kate2017-01-02T00:00:00Z

The two rooms were very cozy and well blanketed, the detached cottage sits just off the main house with great privacy overlooking livestock, green pastures and mountains. Wonderful place and people as its a farm stay.

  • Lovely hut in an unlikely location! Super retreat for a couple to unwind and relax

    Ian2016-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Jacquie ensured that the hut was cooled down upon our arrival (which I thought was extremely thoughtful!). The stay was pleasant and the hut was exactly like it was in the pictures. It was exactly what we needed after a long day of travel! We would highly recommend mayfield hut! Thank your jacquie and James for the wonderful stay.

  • My friend and I loved our stay at the Mayfield Hut. It was really rustic and charming. Nice and clean despite being a "Hut". It may be a Hut but it's very cosy and comfortable, even when it was really stormy outside! It was a great experience. Jacquie was a wonderful host, she delivered on promises and had clear communication. Thanks Jacquie!

    Rebecca2016-11-08T00:00:00Z

  • Great location, very private and lovely hut in the middle of a farm and we enjoyed our stay. Kitchen and Bathroom are in a separate room (just a few steps outside). Great views to the mountains and they left us a nice bottle of wine. Fire made the room quite smokey but have messaged host about this.

    Set on 750 acres of prime riverfront land, Montrose Estate provides self-contained luxury accommodation. Sitting on the back of Mount Hutt - a world renowned skiing destination, it has breathtaking views of the Rakaia river, mountain ranges and of it's own 5 acre lake. "Teata" (the chalet) is located next its own stream and is a great space for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids).
  • A marvelous scenic location with spectacular accommodation. We stayed at the Paewaka house which has four bedrooms, huge kitchen, dining and lounge areas, a library, three fireplaces, bedroom spa bath with a view, a steam-shower and balconies for everyone. We were in heaven with the two of us and could also imagine all the amazing family and friends vacations that might be had there. Communication with Robert was seamless & welcoming. A wonderful experience.

    Nicole2017-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin was maybe even more beautiful in real life than in pictures. Very well equipped too and the scenery was amazing from the large windows. Robert and Jane were so welcoming and nice. We would definetly stay again - a perfect ending to our New Zealand honeymoon. :)

    Erika2017-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • There is a difference between staying at a place and enjoying the entire experience and that's what this place offers as a huge success. We arrived at 2am due to our flight time and Robert still greeted us and showed us through the house. The house has a grandeur feel about it and is complimented by a stunning view. We loved being out of the main town. We had the fire going every night and the spa and shower steam room offer added extras. Definitely recommend this house. We will be back.

    Kelly2017-08-04T00:00:00Z

  • Lovely upscale accommodations. Very private yet not far from town with shops. Robert met us & showed us around. Spa tub was hot & ready upon arrival. Sauna shower was a hit. Basics available for cooking. Beds very comfortable. The night sky was fantastic for star gazing. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

    Kim2017-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Love, love, love this house. Everything was far much better than we expected it to be, and Robert made us feel welcome and did so much more than we could ever ask for. After an hour in the house we found a bubblebath for four that wasn’t on the pictures on airnb. It was very clean, homely and if we ever have the opportunity for a holiday like this again this would be our first choice for accommodation. Highly recommend it. We give it six stars out of five!

    Hans2017-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay at the Montrose Estate, we didn't want to leave!! The landscape and property surrounding was just breathtaking, so stunning. Teata cottage was complete bliss, such a welcoming homely feel; but absolute luxury!! With an open fire and beautiful layout, open deck with streams and little waterfalls in all directions. Nothing could bet it!! We are all already making plans to come back again soon and will become regulars for sure! Thank you Jane, you were so sweet and lovey and very welcoming and helpful; you made our stay so relaxing and a breeze! Thanks again, see you again soon!!

  • Beautiful, stylish, modern and warm home. It was immaculately clean and they were so thoughtful as to put everything dangerous up out of reach from our little kids. All the products and cleaners were plant based too which was a really nice touch. Just a short walk into the town centre and a park just 2 minutes walk down the road. We had such a wonderful time, I highly recommend staying at Rhea and James' lovely house.

    We're right next to the iconic Staveley Store, 12 minutes to the base of Mt Hutt Ski area, 3 minutes to the Staveley Ice Rink & Mt Somers Walking tracks, 30 mins to stunning lakes then another 10 minutes onto Mt Sunday & LOTR Film site. Plenty of stunning outdoor activities in both summer and winter right on the doorstep. You’ll love my place because our newly renovated character cottage is warm and modern but with loads of charm. My place is good for couples, families/kids, and big groups.
    We've just relocated this beautiful historic villa onto the site just behind the Staveley Store and completed a full renovation. Everything is warm and cosy with some great outdoor living spaces where you can enjoy a glass of wine while you soak up the mountain views. We have 4 large bedrooms and beds for 8 but there is plenty of space to fit more by prior arrangement (think family ski week!). We're just 12 minutes to the base of Mt Hutt ski field and close to hiking and lakes
    A gorgeous country neighbourhood, you've got the historic general store on one side, horses, cattle and mountains on the other.
  • We had a great stay, mountain views and there was plenty of space for everyone, it was close to the Mt Hutt Ski Field and the Cafe next door nearby has great coffee. Kate is a great host, provided a knife sharpener soon after our phone conversation. Will definitely want to stay here again when skiing Mt Hutt Thanks again.

  • Lovely house right next to Mt.Somers and the hiking in that area; just down the road from some lovely walks. Extremely quiet and homely, perfect place to unwind and relax.

    Set in a beautiful scenic reserve, home to countless native birds. A 3 level 3 bedroom home. From the top deck you're up high up in the tree tops, with views all the way to the ocean. From the lower decks you'll enjoy being nestled in the forest with even more stunning views. Secluded, private, warm, clean and comfy, our guests say 'its a Dream'. Great for couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), and larger groups. Price includes all linen, towels and exit clean.
    The Lookout is a very special place. Here you can relax and unwind, in total privacy. Take a soak in the clawfoot bath, walk many of the stunning tracks on your doorstep. The dawn chorus is incredible; bellbirds, kereru, fantail, rifleman and other native birds are regular visitors near the house and around the property. The property is set on over 1 hectare of private forest within the reserve. At different times of the year you'll enjoy masses of Himilayan Lilies flowering, a stunning display from Rhododendron, and an array of native plants such as the Kotukutuku (tree fushia). Stargaze at the brilliant night sky, read a book, or enjoy a glass of wine while listening to the bird song at dusk. Access to the house The home is located in Peel Forest Scenic Reserve, a very beautiful protected native forest with flora and fauna of national significance. Access to the house is via a short walk up-hill track through the forest. There are steps leading up to the house. Arrival times and House Cleaning Arrival from 3.00pm, Departure 11am. Price includes all linen, towels and exit clean. Beds are made up for guests arrival.
    Peel Forest is a stunning area with large Scenic Reserve. There are many walks, tramps and hikes on your doorstep, and outdoor adventuring such as rafting, fishing and canyoning. Peel Forest Cafe & Bar is 5 minutes drive from the house, great meals and they often have live music. The community is very friendly and welcoming towards guests. Geraldine township is a short 20 minute drive away.
  • Highly recommended for an amazing stay at a very unique house at a stunning location.

    Petra2017-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Rebecca's place was great. We had a very comfortable and relaxing time. Everything was clean and well looked after. Unfortunately, we were only able to stay one night, to really appreciate this place/area a weekend getaway would be ideal. The timber work and attention to detail throughout the entire house added to the whole experience. We also appreciated the super yummy fresh eggs; sustainable, organic, and local products throughout the house, and sharpened knives! We would return.

    Brett 2017-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • This is an absolutely five star place to stay. Awesome prep comms and clear and warm arrival. Then the place is just magical. Quiet and in the forest with a great balcony and such good morning sun. The recent restoration of the house is high class and everything feels cozy and new and clean at the same time. Just perfect!

    Silvia2017-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing atmosphere and great tranquil location. We felt right at home on arrival, and our whole stay has been very peaceful and comfortable. Rebecca has been an amazing host and her communication has been impeccable. Absolutely loved the house and all the character, one can see how much thought and love has been put into the place :) Our group of 4 had an unforgettable experience, and there was plenty of space to relax in solitude and come together as a group for a social time. Would definitely recommend to others, and we would love to come back for another visit! :)

  • Amazing place. Treehouse hideaway

    Daniel2017-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place for a weekend away with friends! A warm and cozy setting in amongst the trees and birds. It's also a great base for exploring the Scenic Reserve with a walk up Little Mt Peel a must do!!

    Amy2017-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • The place is amazing and was very unique experience for my and friends. The hosts are very thoughtful and you will enjoy the stay.

    Junyuan2017-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is the most amazing Abnb I have never lived before, hidden & secret quiet place which is zero distance with the forest. And the house full of handmade stuff u even can image the process of building & decorating. I hope we can live more days next time.

    Heidi2017-10-07T00:00:00Z

    Matt2017-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect home in a perfect location! We enjoyed our stay on a ski break away, the home had everything we needed including a lovely log fire! And the perfect distance to town to walk in for some dinner and drinks. We highly recommend Kate's home and we will stay again.

  • This is a real oasis on the spectacular doorstep of the Southern Alps. A beautiful spacious home with everything you could possibly want and more! The roaring fire that was set for us and the warmth of Julie and Chris made us feel at home straight away. Thank you so much for your hospitality. We loved staying at your place and hope to return.

    Karen2017-08-30T00:00:00Z

    Bronwen2017-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Greenhouse ski lodge was a perfect place for us to stay on our family ski holiday. Julie and Chris are very warm and friendly. We had all the amenities we needed ( incl a full kitchen and heaps of space) to operate within our budget and be warm, comfortable and relaxed. It was very clean, homely and if we ever have the opportunity for a holiday like this again Greenhouse ski lodge would be our first choice for accommodation

    Jayne2016-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing! Friendly hosts, well equipped kitchen, good location. Highly recommend

    James2015-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Chris met us on arrival and gave us a quick tour of the lodge. The place is very spacious with a giant TV! A strong showerhead, spotless kitchen, pre-loaded fireplace and all the info you could want about surrounding areas are provided. It's well-prepared for adventurers needing a relaxed place to spread out. Highly recommend the Dubliner pub for dinner down the road, and a cafe called Primo for your morning coffee; both a short walk from the house.

    Yeo2017-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Chris and Julie were great hosts, and lived on the floor above the guest accommodation. We shared a front door, so we're given a very warm (literally) welcome but experienced complete privacy. They even lit the fire inside before we arrived home each day!

    Oliver2016-07-24T00:00:00Z

  • The house was very secluded and quiet and had everything we needed. The shops and restaurants were a bit too far to walk to in the cold but only a short drive away.

    Cherise2017-06-03T00:00:00Z

    Overlooking a native garden. This room sleeps 5 people. 2 bunk beds & 1 single. Price is $30 per person. All rooms are centrally heated & we have a log burner in the lounge to keep you always toasty. Linen & towels provided. We are about a seven min stroll to the centre of Methven. You’ll love Alpenhorn's distinctly Alpine and homely rustic feel. Lots of natural wood, cosy & warm. A small, friendly place, Alpenhorn has only 5 bedrooms, so you will be able to relax & chill here.
    Alpenhorn has been running for 26 years now. It is a family run business so you know you'll be taken care of. From humble beginnings it has developed into the homely, cosy accommodation you find today. Warm, clean & tidy it's just the place you want to come home to. Our open plan kitchen, lounge area is great to relax in after a hard day in the outdoors. It has everything you will need to cook up a storm & there's a dishwasher to help with the cleaning up. We have a beautiful indoor conservatory garden where you can read a book, eat your meal or check your emails. Wifi, espresso coffee & tea are free. Hot pick in the 'Lonely Planet', you're sure of a great stay here.
    Methven is a small quiet town in summer. Perfect for relaxing & getting away from the bustle of a busy life. Fabulous outdoor experiences are just a quick drive away. Much busier in the winter. The local supermarkets are open 7am-9pm . Loads of good restaurants & bars available. Our picks are: Ski Time for something special or Aqua Japanese for something different.
