Testimonials

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 were completely smitten with your gorgeous home. It is by far the most user friendly and welcoming holiday home we have ever encountered. Thank you for sharing The Doug; it is quite magical and full of great energy.

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!

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.

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.
