Our Reviews

Totally Amazing! We had the priveledge of staying in this incredible place after doing the Routeburn Track. It is the most unique, calm, relaxing place I have ever stayed in. Everything is not only eco-friendly, but beautifully decorated by local artists. Our room was outstanding, everything...
