I surprised my husband with a night away in Luna cottage for his birthday. Everything was perfect. Booking was fast, via e-mail, Justin and Kirsty replied promptly. When we arrived and were settled the property manager came to check on us. I mentioned we would like to use the pinot pit and they offered to set up for us, even brought marshmallows for the kids, what a treat! It was a beautiful evening sitting round the fire looking over the lake as the night came in. The perfect wee break, everyone loved it!

excellent spot sitting on Lake Hayes. The cottages were warm, beautifully presented with exceptional views over the lake. So close to everything i.e. airport, vineyards. I would highly recommend these cottages to everyone.

These nearly new cottages were perfect for our recent Queenstown getaway. They have an excellent layout, clever design, lovely hosts and are in a truly magic spot beside Lake Hayes down the end of a private road. We are looking forward to staying again sometime soon.

Loved our stay at these peaceful cottages right by Lake Hayes. Incredible position so close to both Arrowtown and Queenstown/airport, the perfect set-up for a weekend away. Reading a book by the picture window with the fire roaring was heaven! Super comfortable beds! Loved our stay :)

So many pretty things all in one package! The view of the beautiful lake, the inside interior, the artwork, even the landscaping... it's all so aesthetically pleasing. Not only was the cottage so warm and cozy upon arrival, but all the floors are heated and the fireplace adds an extra cozy touch. The modern full- kitchen made it so simple and easy to make a wonderful homemade meal for dinner. Waking up the first morning was also amazing as we drank coffee on the huge window seat while watching the sun come up over the mountains. The 2-minute walk down to the main lake trail is breathtaking as we saw friendly people riding bikes and walking their dogs. Will definitely be coming back. It will be hard to find another place so accommodating and beautiful.
