Great location within walking distance to pools and shops. Units are all separate chalets which means nice and quite and there is no noise from the unit next door. Very clean units and had everything we needed for our stay. We stayed in Unit 6, large spacious 2 bedroom unit. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed in one of the self-contained cabins for one night, and I wish it could have been more. So nice to have our own space, with kitchenette, table and sofa, separate bedroom, and no neighbors to share walls. The bathroom had a towel warmer, which was much appreciated on the cool, wet day we had. The staff were friendly... More

Stayed 2 nights in a 2 bedroom chalet late in March. From the moment we were met by Andrew we felt right at home. The chalet we had was beautifully warm and clean and had everything we needed. Views of the mountains from the lovely wee seat on the veranda were stunning. Even the misty rain that we woke up... More

We spent a couple of nights here and found the rooms to be very clean, comfortable and well equipped. We liked the location, being a short walk away from the centre which at weekends can be very busy. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the laundry facilities good with a washing machine, tumble dryer and washing lines. The... More

We were rapt with our choice of a one bedroomed chalet. This chalet was very spacious with a well fitted kitchen (proper oven), spacious living and bathroom. Outside was a Jack and Jill seat ideal for an evening wine or breakfast with the birds. Very clean and tidy. The bathroom was clean and shower great. There was also a wee... More

Thank you thank you Andrew for calling me to say I'd left my new sunglasses on the window and sending them straight back to Auckland for me.:) I agree with all the other positive comments about your excellent friendly service and charming chalets. We particularly loved the forest setting and forest and mountain views from the elevated site. Good DVD... More
