Is bed linen and towels provided?

Yes. We provide bed linen and towels for your stay. 

Do we have to clean the house when we leave? 

No, but we ask that you leave the home tidy with your dishes done. There is a cleaning/linen fee included in your quote and our clean team will complete a full clean after you check out. 

Why are there no properties available for the dates I've selected? 

There can be a number of reasons why there are no properties showing as available for the dates you have selected. 

  • We may be fully booked on the dates you have selected.
  • There are times of the year that we have a minimum stay policy so if you are looking to book a home over a holiday period you may need to consider extending your stay in Twizel. Christmas/New Year period has a 5 night minimum stay, Easter has a 4 night minimum stay and other public holidays can have a 3 night minimum stay. 
  • If you are booking for a stay during a rowing regatta Book Twizel will often block these dates from instant bookings. This allows us to manually match you with the best home option ensuring that we full as many beds as possible in each and every house so that all rowers and supporters can find somewhere suitable to stay. We would love to hear from you regarding your rowing accommodation needs so just give us a call on 027 226 8020 or email

Can I bring my dog on holiday too?
