The owners were away and so we didn’t meet them . There is no oven

Response from Michele:
Hello Sue, sorry we were not there but this was mentioned in our message to you earlier and our manager Liz was able to look after you including providing a fold out bed that you asked for. There is no oven is stated in our description and by all accounts is not necessary for short stays. BBQ can be a little temperamental but most people get it going if they wish to use it. I hope the lack of a stove did not spoil your trip. Regards Michele

If you're looking for a scenic bnb in Twizel; look no further. This is a paradise for astrophotographers. Comfortable, clean; Solo was the icing on the cake though. Had fun taking photos of Solo and the gang.

There was great communication from the hosts, Michelle and Jim. Key was easy to find, as was the Cottage. Very close to Twisel and the Rowing Venue. Great fishing spot too!! All the kitchen equipment was new and easy to use. Heaps of hot water in the shower. Comfortable beds.
