Thanks again for a great stay; it’s a mint place you have!

A fantastic place to base yourself and explore the local area. Very well set up, warm, comfortable and inviting. All that adds up to a place that is easy – everything works as it should so you can just get on with relaxing or making the most of your time. By the time we left we were already talking about what we would do the next time we went back. Hopefully soon!

A great find and a perfect family retreat. Us pack of Aussies loved The Doug and Castle Hill.

We are already planning the next trip back; it will be longer so that we can explore more of the area and enjoy this wonderful place.

A great place to have an extended family event. We all had an amazing time. The weather really turned it on too. And the mountain-biking? Fantastic! We’ll be back.

Heaven on Castle Hill!! … We found a beautiful log cabin on a hill, filled with love and memories from previous residents and its owners. We have had such a lovely, relaxing weekend… We will definitely be back! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

We had an amazing time; no snow but loved the house, trampoline, day trips. This place is magical! Can’t wait to come back.

We’ve really appreciated how cosy the house is, and also how easy it is to manage gear, kids, meals etc in the house. It’s wonderful to come up and be reminded of these beautiful places so close to home.

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!

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.

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!! 🙂

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.
