This was the perfect place to spend the last few days of our New Zealand holiday. An immaculate and very well equipped cottage in a spectacular setting. We will always remember the peace, the spectacular sunset (not guaranteed!) and incredible starlit nights.
Pip, the host was extremely friendly and welcoming and we immediately felt at home. She even went to the lengths of making me a birthday cake! That was very much appreciated and soon eaten.
Lots to do in the area, we visited hamner springs and a few of the central Otago vineyards, or just sit on the veranda and enjoy...

High quality, superbly quiet, and so relaxing.

Note that it is 6km along a gravel road, in case that is a consideration. And no wifi, but honestly, you don't need it. We found it so therapeutic to just sit on the deck, eat dinner, and watch the clouds go by as the sun got lower.

We had the most relaxing few days at Flax - it was the ideal spot to recharge after a long international flight and before a long drive up North. The cottage was spotlessly clean , warm, well equipped and stylishly furnished with high quality bedding and towels. Waking up to amazing uninterrupted views and the occasional bunny rabbit in front of our room was an added treat. It was blissfully quiet and peaceful with the only sound being that of birdsong .The kids loved feeding Cheese and Crackers, the resident alpacas, and just running around the grounds. Tina told us about a little walk down to the river and , although it was too cold to swim, we had great fun paddling and skimming stones. Not a soul in sight. Perfect. Tina was warm and great w the kids not to mention a great cook. Do order an evening meal from her- best pannecotta ever! Thank you Tina for and hoping your lovely home was not damaged by the recent quake :(. Regards Tara and family

Lovely place , great decor & amenities. Peaceful surroundings with good view. Extremely good all round & wonderful breakfast options provided. Everything you could want for a weekend away to recharge the batteries. Also great option for a group of friends. We will be back in summer to enjoy the outdoors.

The moment we arrived for our 1 night stay in the Tussock cottage, it was luxury! The impeccable presented cottage oozed 5 Star – the decor, setting, furnishings, linen, the supplied breakfast (home made muesli and apricots were amazing) and the divine platter that Tina prepared for us. The best 20 hours away in a long time for us to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary. We came away from our ‘Hurunui Rive Retreat’ experience feeling very special for having staying there. Definitely will repeat – however, don’t know that I can wait until our 20th wedding anniversary to repeat.
