The Owners:-

An Australian couple Kenny and Heidi Smith built a small cabin retreat in New Zealand for their family and are now renting out via Airbnb. The couple wanted the cabin to mesh with its beautiful natural surroundings. Kenny says 'they were inspired by the back-country huts and hiking shelters found in the Southern Alps of New Zealand'.

Food:-

The best is to go on fishing to nearby fresh water lake and grill it on your own with lots of wooden logs available or just take a drive of 15 mins to Twizel town and buy the groceries you would need.

Note:-

As the property is built in Non-Urban Area the roads to and from town can (not common but possible) become blocked in unusual weather events due to high amounts of snowfall. It is always better to keep the track of weather before booking a stay.

Rates:- Approx 17,000 per night.

Nearby Attractions:-

Aoraki Mount Cook national park and the glacial lakes of Pukaki and Ohau being just minutes away.

The area has a large number of hiking trails for all levels, and the 300km long Alps to Ocean cycle-way passes close by.

In the winter season, there are three snow fields close by, with Ohau being the closest, followed by Roundhill and Mt. Dobson.
