Nestled in the alpine village of Arthur’s Pass, and in the heart of Arthur’s Pass National Park, The Tussocks offers a great mid-way stopover when travelling from coast to coast, or a fantastic base for doing the many tracks and trails in the surrounding area. The house is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families, hikers/trampers and larger groups of up to eight people.
“What a lovely and spacious NZ cottage! The location provides very convenient access to SH 73 to access either the east or west coast, but it is also a quiet setting with stunning views of the surrounding mountain peak. Some may say the outside needs some sprucing up -- agreed but certainly not anything to turn you away. The inside is just so charming with homey decor. Super comfortable beds with excellent linens, modern bathroom, fully-furnished kitchen, space heaters in every room. Of utmost importance to us, Michael and Marion's place met our high standards of cleanliness. Genuine NZ hospitality.”
The Loft is a very cosy couples retreat, basking in full day sun. Situated on a 2 1/2 acre rural property 12 kms east of Arthur's Pass village, and bordering Arthur's Pass National Park, The Loft is surrounded by native beech forest and is a haven for birdlife. Please note: there is WiFi, but cell coverage is limited between Castle Hill and Arthur's Pass, so be sure to have directions and entry details with you. It is a comfortable two hour drive to/from Christchurch International Airport.
“We (my 4yo son & I) had a very comfortable night at Rochelle’s. Her self contained little loft is very well equipped and the decor and extra little touches are lovely and thoughtful. Rochelle’s communication and instructions were excellent so we had no problems with self check in and knowing what to expect (eg. Bringing food as the hotel was closed for meals etc). I found that although there was some road noise (being on a main road) it wasn’t so noticeable into the night. My son loved exploring the little creek running down the side of the property. We really enjoyed our night away!”

“We stayed in The Alps in the depths of winter. A very cosy property with a lovely fire and heaps of firewood. All facilities were as we expected. Fully equipped kitchen and spacious living area. Location is great right in the heart of the village 100M from the store, cafe, visitors centre and very close to all the popular walks. Even though the weather was patchy we are able to enjoy the walks as a lot a predominately bush walks. We throughly recommend the Arthur's Pass walking track from the village to the pass return. Beautifully presented and maintained track.”
