Located on the boundary fence of sprawling valley farmland, over-looking stunning Lake Mapourika, surrounded by lush rainforest, right at the base of the Southern Alps. The cottage is less than 2 years old & offers world class luxury and seclusion as part of your West Coast experience. Pick from the herb garden for your cooking, soak in the brand new 6 seater spa pool whilst taking in the panoramic lake, bush and valley views. The sunsets are a dream! Great WiFi & only 4 min drive from town.

The space
The cottage has been styled and designed with vacation, relaxation and luxury in mind. The property is located well off the street, surrounded by native bush with a sprawling lawn out front which meets the boundary of valley farmland which makes its way down to Lake Mapourika. To the right you have natural mountain views as the Southern Alps begin their journey upwards. This is one of the best views on offer in Franz Josef Glacier. Under the verandah, there is a brand new 6 seater spa pool and a gravel pit just out from this with outdoor chairs of which you can enjoy your favourite drink and watch an incredible West Coast sunset. The cottage boasts a spacious master bedroom (the only bedroom) with a cosy and comfortable Queen bed with direct views out to the lake from the bedroom. The ensuite includes a large shower with fantastic water pressure and shower gel, shampoo and conditioner are provided. The kitchen is fully equipped for all your cooking needs. Salt, pepper, oil, sugar, coffee, milk and tea are provided. There is a mountain bike track and walking/running loop track through the rainforest located in close proximity to the property .
