Home away from home

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 25 Oct 2018
Cottage is in a lovely setting with views to snow capped peaks on three sides. Comfortable lounge and two bedrooms. (one with two single beds accessed through the double). Well equipped kitchen and warm and cosy heating. Loved sitting on the veranda with a wine or a coffee. Private garden with clothes line and seating. Hosts friendly and very hospitable. Would love to visit again.

Reviewed 22 April 2018

We appointed cottage, with a peaceful aspect to the mountains. Ideal for a couple or young family (the second bedroom is off the master bedroom). Little extras included home baking on arrival and a drop-off at the wedding we were attending. Lovely.

We are here currently and have been for 3 nights.

We are in the wee units near the main house as Or hard Cottage was booked and can't praise it highly enough.

It's a home away from home with Jane the hostess going out of her way to make everything lovely.

Lots of little touches that are far above your usual accommodation such as fresh baking, stamped postcards to send to friends, really comprehensive information about local attractions, freshly picked flowers and herbs, spotlessly clean, lovely big comfy bed, views to die for.

It's position is beautiful, the Remarkables on one side, Coronet Peak on the other, beautiful garden setting thanks to Rogers green fingers.

Arrowtown is walkable, so is Lake Hayes, great cafe and wine cellar round the corner. (Akarua Wines)

I could stay here for a very long time...

This is truly a piece of paradise. The most delightful cottage complete with delightful hosts amidst some of the best scenery in the world. The cottage is more than comfortable. Jane and Roger have thought of everything to make this a perfect place to be - fresh herbs; fresh muffins; a bowl for popcorn and the wherewithal to make it; plush dressing gowns; a kitchen equipped for a chef!; reading material and games to keep you entertained for days without having to leave and all this within a minute of great restaurants, cafes, wineries (there is one literally 'around the corner'). The only drawback at all is being torn between wanting to sight-see but not wanting to leave such a comfortable and magic place. I wouldn't look to stay anywhere else in the Wakatipu Basin -this is it!

Reviewed 2 February 2017

We stayed in the accommodation attached to the house last year and loved our stay so much with Jane and Roger that we came back again this year. The two bedroomed cottage is lovely but a cheaper option is the one bedroomed accommodation we stayed in with lovely views of the Remarkables.

You won't get a warmer welcome anywhere else and Jane provides lots of little extras with flowers, treats and even postcards! Nothing is too much trouble and there is also access to a washing machine which was useful when travelling for several weeks.

You do need a car as it is situated some distance from Queenstown but that is the best bit and nice and close to Arrowtown which is worth visiting.

We loved our stay here and it was just as lovely second time round - highly recommended, you won't be disappointed!

We didn't stay in the Orchard Cottage as it was booked but instead in the two self contained units attached to the main house. Jane was a fantastic host and the accomodation was lovely and well equipped, and the location was perfect (best to have a car though). Views from the property were stunning. We'll be back!
