We loved it there, such an amazing house and it was all so stunning with all the snow around – beautiful place. Would love to go back sometime.

Everything was so organised and easy to find, made staying there so simple and relaxing. Perfect weekend … we absolutely loved it and want to be back there now! It’s a struggle heading back to work!

Beautiful home in a beautiful place! We loved having The Doug as our home away from home for a couple days. A lovely way to end our three week holiday in stunning New Zealand! Thanks!! 🙂

Our first trip to NZ! Castle Hill was the second place on our tour of the South Island, and we couldn’t have picked a more beautiful house and place to stay. We’ve had a wonderful time and will not forget this place in a hurry.

This is the second time we have visited The Doug Log House. My husband and I just love it here. The snow has been great. I love the views from this house. Look forward to coming back.

Un séjour agréable dans une maison très confortable. Nous avons adore les chocolats au retour devant la cheminée.

Tout est vraiment fonctionnel, nous reviendrons avec plaisir.

Merci beaucoup.
