Stay on our family vineyard in the beautiful Waitaki Valley countryside. Our self-contained cottage is freshly decorated and comfortable. Kept cosy by a wood fire. An easy ride from the A20 Cycle Trail, 8 mins drive from Kurow. Surrounded by vineyards and stunning mountain scenery, no neighbours/off main road.
It is next to our house but separated by a screen so you have your own private space. Relax and enjoy the extreme peace and quiet, quality queen bed and stylish decor. Great stargazing.

The space
The guesthouse/cottage is around 55m2, divided into a lounge/kitchen and bedroom, with the bathroom off a small hallway in between. Both rooms have high ceilings giving a spacious feeling. It has been recently decorated and has a wood fire, original art, TV, books, magazines, games, kids toys and a wireless speaker for your use.
The kitchen is new and has a gas hob, fridge and all essentials.
The bedroom is newly carpeted, with comfortable bedding, and a quality queen mattress. Off the bedroom is your own covered patio looking out to the surrounding working vineyards.

Guest access
Outdoor petanque area, patio, guests can walk the perimeter of our property (please check with us first) or up the hill behind for great views over the valley.
Shared laundry facilities (washer only) available for stays of 3+ nights

Other things to note
Please note, as our property is fully off-grid, there are no electric heaters in the cottage. However it's fully insulated and kept very cosy by the fire. We'll provide plenty of wood and will light the fire before you arrive if chilly. It may need to be relit in the morning.
Tea, coffee, and milk complimentary.
Please enquire upon booking if you would like to enjoy a bottle of our own wine while you are here. I can also provide a cheeseboard to go with it (both extra cost). I can give also you a quick tour of the vineyard if you are interested.
We have two friendly cats who may wander in to your space if they get a chance!
Occasionally we need to start our back-up generator which you may hear if staying 2+ nights, although we try to do this during the middle of the day when no guests are around.
