Perfect place to explore Arthur's Pass or to read books by the log burning stove all day. Very relaxing and enjoyable!

Warm, comfortable, has everything needed in kitchen, great location, helpful and responsive hosts. The house is being renovated in a lovely fashion, so don't judge your stay by the older appearance of the outside. Very glad to have had a few days there.

If you need a place to stay, this is a good pick. Clean, lock box, and close to town.

After a long wet cold ride it was great to arrive at this warm well-appointed cottage with comfy beds. Great communication and great value in the wilds of the stunning Arthur's Pass.
