Bach or holiday home, 0 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 2)
Garry and I (Kate) purchased this property as we fell in love with the peacefulness we felt there. We both love the outdoors and wanted to share this with others. Garry is a worker so to make sure he combined work with play this property ticked all the you will see! I just like to pitch in so we get enjoyment from watching this property evolve as we come up with new ideas for it. I have 2 horses I take over there frequently to enjoy the riding closeby and our Golden Labrador "Jess" just loves trying to catch all those rabbits!
KateP715 purchased this Bungalow in 2015
Why KateP715 chose Central Otago District
Need a peaceful, no fuss get away from it all weekend, that is what we love, leaving all our worries behind.
What makes this Bungalow unique
What more could you ask for, a Mongolian Yurt nestled in Central Otago!! For that special couples weekend retreat. Enjoy the beautiful rural views this acre property has to offer from atop of the hill, down the Manuherikia valley and river towards Chatto Creek to the ruggard landscape where you see the lower Manorburn dam and across to Old Mans range. Then only a 6 minute drive to Alexandra for those glamping supplies or just a wander around the shops. Whether you want to bike part of the Iconic Rail trail, visit many of the beautiful surrounds of Central Otago or just kick back and relax this property is the base you will love to do this from. Cycling, wineries, restuarants, watersports, walking and many other fun activities just a stones throw away. Not to mention an hours drive to get the big city lights fix in Queenstown and those adventure tourism activities. For horse lovers if you are wanting to see this area or passing through and need a pit stop for a couple of nights then we are happy to accomodate you and your beloved steeds. Please discuss this with us first as there could be small additional costs that apply.

Relaxing Yurt stay!
Awesome stay here! Restful and most of all unique! Warm, cosy and very comfy bed! Great communication with hosts. Will be back!
Due to unforeseen circumstances we were unable to stay on our booked dates. The owners were so understanding and absolutely awesome to deal with. Looking very forward to rebooking.
We loved our stay in the Yurt
We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay at this property. It was peaceful with all the amenities that we needed. The communication with Kate was excellent. Hope to stay again sometime :-)
Very comfortable, clean and well presented, well apointed pantry and cooking area, very peaceful
If your looking for private space, peace and quiet and a place to totally chill and relax in comfort then this is a property is perfect! Its a little bit quirky but that simply adds to the charm of staying there "glamping" it up .....with absolutly no other people in sight, just the birds.
Fantastic experience, great set up. Will be back
The Yurt was a fantastic tranquil and peaceful spot.
Heavy rain one day but thoroughly comfortable, warm and dry.
Very well set up with everything you could need.
Close to Alex or Chatto Creek (had a good meal there)
We definitely plan to return.
Fantastic place to stay. Loved the yurt.
Overall it was a great experience. Some complicated stuff with water supply and disposal of, but apart from that, awesome experience.
Alexandra is a quiet rural town nestled amongst amazing rock formations. Green belts surround the rocky areas. The mighty Clutha river runs through the town. The area has bike trails including the Iconic Rail trail and the new Clutha Gold and Roxburgh Gorge trails nearby. Walking amongst the rugged hills, biking, visiting the dams nearby, dining or checking out old historic buildings that have had new life breathed into them there is plenty to see and do. Wineries in the area reach right across to Queenstown and if you don't fancy any of these activities then just relaxing in a Hammock with a good book and a cool drink away from it all could just be exactly what the doctor ordered!
