Don't hesitate. Fully equipped contemporary cottage in a quiet neighborhood with spacious lots. Beautiful views. Very comfortable. Jim and Michele are great. They went above and beyond as hosts. Felt like we were staying with friends. They took us on a bike ride and a fishing trip and had tons of conversation to share. Would definitely stay here again.

Book this place as soon as possible and stay as long as you can! It's incredibly clean and comfortable. At night you have the BEST views of the night sky - I have never seen so many stars in my life! Plus there are sheep that you can feed. Jim and Michele are very accommodating and have lots of wonderful recommendations for things to do.

What a dream! Māhina Cottage is in such a picturesque location and the house is cosy and a true home away from home. Unfortunately we didn't get to met Jim and Michele but they gave us clear directions to the house, and left eggs and milk in the fridge four breakfast. Would highly recommend to all travellers looking for peace and tranquility... and stunning mountain views :-)

On our drive from Christchurch to Queenstown this was the perfect middle point to stay overnight. After a morning of incredible views at the lakes this was the best we could have asked for. A cottage just outside of Twizel with an incredible view of fields and a mountain range. Extremely quiet and very peaceful. Inside, all the amenities you'll ever need. Amazing place.
