My husband and I would like to stay for 3 nights in late Feb, 2019, for daily hiking in Mt Cook NP. I have read many posts and articles about Mt Cook Village, Glentanner Park, and Twizel. Would you kindly help us decide which area to book our lodging. I fear our options may be limited because lodging demand exceeds supply here.
Our ideal lodging: a vacation rental - a home, apartment, condo, boutique hotel - with full kitchen and a washer, ensuite, queen or king bed, quiet, safe area, clean, no scented products such as air freshener, scented sticks, scented oil (we have allergies & asthma).
Likes: hiking, parks, gardens, nature, wildlife, photography, tranquility, open space, fresh air.
Dislikes: crowd, noise, seedy areas, cigarette smokes, pollution, bushfires, cyclones.
