Reviews

"Best location ever! The hut was exactly what we were looking for after spending the new year in Queenstown. It had everything we needed. The whole experience was so rustic and relaxing. Best bath in the world! You can just sit in it during a storm and feel amazing! Great walks to do during the day around the land. We can’t wait to see the cycle trail finished! Thank you so much Tom and Katie..."
