Our house was one of the original Ministry of Works houses built to house the workers on the Power Project. It has been extensively renovated and is fully wheel chair accessible. There are two bathrooms and it is very spacious, warm and sunny, with two large heat pumps and a log burner (firewood supplied) to keep you cool in summer and warm in winter. 

The house is centrally located and close to reserves, playing fields and walkways, with shops and restaurants just minutes walk away. It is on a back section, very quiet with great views of the night sky and plenty of off street parking. The space is decorated with a collection of our favourite pieces of art and a well stocked library of books for you to enjoy during your stay and making sure you feel right at home.

warm, comfortable home that easily accommodated 4 couples, including a paraplegic. Very handy to all amenities. Clean and tidy. beds very comfortable. Great to be able to have our wee dogs with us. Booking was easy and changes made without fuss. Thank-you

Meets all the needs

A weekend away fishing in Twizel was made so much easier finding the ideal house. My partner who is in a wheelchair found the house met all his needs, the ramp, bathroom and general set up was as good as it gets. The house was very warm and quiet. Also owners were 'wheeley' great to deal with and we will definitely be back. Cheers Mike and Tegan

Great stay

From the start Amy was great. We made a last minute decision to get away for a night and Amy was very accommodating and helpful. It was such a lovely place to stay and had everything we needed. Was great to take our dog that we take every where with us. Will def stay again. Thanks again Amy

Amy did a good job communicating with the responsive owners. The house was easy to locate. We had a pleasant stay and did enjoy the fully furnished house The fire place was great. Kitcken was well equipped with untensils. Mary Ann was attentive to our requests like adding. a heater.
