5/5 Excellent

Home away from home
A standalone house with plenty of space and privacy. There is nothing quite like relaxing in front of an open fire after a great day on the mountain, we'll definitely be back :)

5/5 Excellent

Great stay

4/5 Good

Perfect ski weekend.
Best weekend of the year on the Mt. Property was perfectly good for our needs. Hosts very accomodating and communicative.

4/5 Good

Very cozy, clean but cold.
We loved our stay in the house, the kids room was fab, the fire very cozy. Great location for snow trips to Turoa. We found the house incredible cold though and needed to use the heaters a lot - the switch board unfortunately couldn’t support it so we woke up one night with heating off in freezing cold bedrooms. On our last day also the roof started leaking and dripping in two bedrooms right in the mattresses. I hope the owner can fix that soon as the place is quite charming.
