Has amazing mountain/river views. Large deck. En-suite shower and toilet. Fridge, microwave, jug and toaster. Gas BBQ. Comfy queen size bed. Oh.And a tribe of 6 rescue goats on site!
“Wow. Off the beaten track this place is a must if you’re travelling between Queenstown and Milford Sound. Secluded and surrounded by souring mountains and rolling hills, the stay exceeded our expectations. Pete was an amazing host who introduced us to the resident pets (goats, chickens, ducks, turkey and cat), while the neighbouring cows were inquisitive and so cute. The eco cabin is quaint and includes everything you could need, even an outdoor soaking tub and fire pit for a night under the stars. Cannot rave enough about how amazing this place is. If you haven’t booked it yet, don’t wait any longer!”

“Jason is a wonderful host who are very quick in response and very generous to provide quality welcome gift/breakfast to make you feel welcomed. The stunning house had shocked us in a good way, I’m kind of lost in words to say how much we loved this house, from the structure, style to its interior and many detailed decoration... the artisan taste presented in everything in the house.... put it in simple, we love it and would stay again if we ever pass this area again.”
