Great property, very close to the Arrowtown main centre. Beautiful setting and the autumn colours on the mountains framing the property are just a beauty to behold. The hosts Frank and Brenda were lovely and very welcoming and took time out to talk to the guests.

Our little cottage was very cozy. Having a spare bed worked well as it meant we both had a peaceful nights sleep, as I snore when I have been drinking! Over all I would stay here on price, location and ambience.
