A largely wooden Chalet constructed with solid beams and chunky timber which gives the impression that it's just evolved from the trees that surround it!
The large living area and kitchen/dining room with its interesting and original beams and architecture give the chalet its quirky character
There's a large sheltered deck with fantastic mountain views & the living room features a large rock-faced fireplace and overstuffed sofas so you can relax after your day on the slopes/sightseeing/hiking

The space
"Base Camp" as we call it is only a short walk to the center of the village but is situated in a beautifully quiet and tranquil location. If you listen very carefully you can even hear the odd kiwi at night.
If you’re looking for modern and sparkling this is not for you. Base Camp has original charm, plenty of space and well-provided kitchen facilities. It is a true alpine lodge experience. All of the rooms have efficient heating and hot water is hot!
Wood is provided for a lovely fire in the living room.
Please note, there may be the odd Thursday, (due to lack of cleaners available on that day) that check-in may have to be after 6pm.
All other days of the week are fine for check-in from 3pm unless otherwise agreed. Check out our availability calendar. If guests are checking out on the same Thursday as you are checking in you will have to check in after 6pm. If there is noone booked for the Wednesday prior then 3pm check in will be fine as the cleaners will have cleaned it the day before.
There's a wonderfully private and sheltered section for the kids to run around or relax and take in the mountains and nature - it's like being in a "nature bath" so very therapeutic. This is a great place to stargaze the clear night sky surrounded by snow-clad mountains (in the winter) are breathtaking.
Also available are Netflix, which operates through the PlayStation, TV 42 inch TV (NZ Free to air), Sky TV & a Bluetooth Home Theater System.

Located in the village this three bedroom, two bathroom holiday house is the perfect setting for your stay.
Free Parking & AC
During warmer months, the home's showstopper is a private deck with incredible views of the surrounding mountains, this is the ideal spot for lazing, reading, outdoor dining, stargazing, happy hour and generally making the most of the outdoors. The deck features a dining area with seating for six. The best thing is that it's completely private and sheltered from wind.
Just relax, rejuvenate and unplug in this ultimate rustic getaway experience in the mountains, listen to the sounds of nature, read and nap, or enjoy long walks

Guest access
You will have the whole house to yourself. Access is via a lockbox for which I will give you the code number once the booking is confirmed. There is plenty of off street parking.

Other things to note
You may hear trains at night as they shunt down at the nearby railway lines but apart from that the house is super quiet and peaceful

Location

Arthur's Pass, Canterbury, New Zealand

The house is situated in the only authentic Alpine village in New Zealand - Arthurs Pass.
It is in the very popular Arthurs Pass National Park which has plenty of beautiful picturesque walks and tramps all around.
There is a store and cafes however the village is very small so it is best to -Buy your groceries before you arrive - Groceries can be quite expensive and be of a limited selection in Arthur's Pass village. We highly recommend you purchase groceries and tramping food requirements in a main centre (Greymouth, Hokitika, Christchurch etc) before you arrive. (Or go out for dinner at the Wobly kea)

-Arriving by private car - Fill up your fuel tank in a main centre to avoid inflated fuel prices in Arthur's Pass village.
