Don't be crazy

If you don't stay here you are crazy. This place is incredible and has the most amazing views. Very secluded and private but close to Mt Cook, Twizel, Ben Ohau etc. Very very warm and clean. I loved it so much and we will be back.

Thank you so much for having us. We LOVED our time here and exploring the surrounds. Your place is wonderful. Michael Jackson was particularly friendly but Jen loved feeding all the animals, she even went out in the crazy rain. We will sure be back again!!

Spectacular views

A tranquil, remote farm stay. Feeding the friendly chickens was a treat! We stayed here as a base to get to Lake Tekapo and Mt. Cook, which served us well. The 3GB WIFI limit meant that we spent more quality time together! Hosts were very friendly, and available to help at any time. Spectacular views, and very nice escape into the country.

Close but private

Nice and private. Animals were adorable. Close to areas like lake tekapo but secluded enough to feel private.

Beautiful and Secluded

Beautiful and secluded. The house is very comfortable and the location is just right if you want to be 'away from it all', but still close enough to the town of Twizel to be convenient, and only about an hour from Mt. Cook where there are some magical hikes. Darren and Ange, the owners, are awesome. Welcoming and helpful.

Favourite family spot

Great location, whisper quiet. Great for watching the stars at night and the farm animals were perfect for the kids. The accommodation was fantastic with modern and clean facilities.
