Had a wonderful overnight stay here at Rascal cottage. Only wish that we could have stayed longer. It was spacious, warm and luxurious. Can highly recommend The Moorings at Pisa Landing to dine at. We will be back.

We had a great time here whilst travelling around NZ. It gave us a great base to explore both Queenstown and Wanaka and was brilliant to come back to relax at in the evenings. Rose was very welcoming an and provided some great extra touches. The walnuts were lovely as we're the grounds of Burns Cottage.

who could ask for more? Beautifully appointed individual cottages with ensuite including well appointed kitchen, BBQ, wifi, terrace and set in a walnut grove. Spotlessly clean and in immaculate condition. Beautify gardens. Rose made us welcome and even did some shopping for us - wow!

We were visiting for a family wedding and occupied all of the cottages where we proceeded to feel at home hanging out on the porches in the midst of beautiful gardens, and enjoying the sounds of the sheep in the fields while we had tasty BBQ. Every detail in each of the cottages was perfection - a mix of homey... More

We were two couples nd rated the Rascal and Moonlight cottages in December. The cottages and surroundings were great and the hosts were very nice and accomodating. It was a perfect place to explore the wine country of Central Otago. The hosta garden was beautiful and our stay overall was excellent! Highly recommended

Glad you enjoyed our vineyards - they are so close and our guests always enjoy the local wines. Kindest wishes, More

The host at this cottage was so nice and welcoming, and helped make our stay so relaxing! The Rascal cottage was so lovely, I wish I could live there. Loved the free laundry and rustic setting--just a relaxing, lovely place to spend some time (especially enjoyed having the fire on a cool spring night!)

We stayed as a group of three in the celebration cottage, and couldn't be more pleased with the experience! We were warmly greeted by the lovely Rose, who showed us the features of our cottage and provided us with a freshly made breakfast hamper for the following morning (the Apricot conserve was still warm!).

The cottages are lovely and in a tranquil and beautiful setting. We stayed in Rascal but the others are equally good.
