We stayed with Vladka and Richard in January 2013 for the final 2 weeks of our 5 week honeymoon tour to Australia and New Zealand. We chose Precipice Creek due to the stunning location in Glenorchy, surrounded by snow capped mountains, which is just as stunning as it appears on the website. Vladka was an enthusiastic host, with an abundance of knowledge of the local area that helped us make the most of our stay, who looked after us like friends rather than guests. Richard works for the Department Of Conservation so was also able to offer some very useful advice and information. Nothing was too much trouble whether it was using their washing machine when we arrived (after having already spent 3 weeks travelling around Australia and New Zealand!) or using their hosepipe to clean the car after a day spent exploring the back country unsealed roads! The accommodation is very comfortably furnished and well presented which was kept spotlessly clean by Vladka throughout our 2 week stay with several changes of bedclothes and towels. Above all else it was the stunning location of Precipice Creek which ensured that we had a magical honeymoon in New Zealand which gave us memories that we will treasure for a lifetime.
