We did enjoy seeing your family relaxing in the garden and having a Christmas reunion. Thank-you for leaving the beautiful roses and making sure the house was looked after well. We hope to see you all back next year.

The double glazed windows combined with the insulation and underground power guarantee that the house will be quiet! Perfect for resting after a long day out on the many rivers. Thank-you for your review and we hope to see you back next year!

Thank-you for your very kind review. We receive many complimentary comments from our guests about our very comfortable house. We have tried very hard to fill it with high quality beds and linen, top range kitchen items and plush furniture. We know the trout fishing is fantastic and hope to see you back again soon to tackle the 3-4 pounders in the Mataura followed by the 6-8 pounders in the upper Oreti!
