Testimonials

We absolutely loved our stay here and would have extended it if we could have cancelled our other reservation!

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.

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!

Another pack of Aussies returned to The Doug for a longer stay to enjoy the skiing and Castle Hill. We enjoyed settling into The Doug and making the most of this awesome log home. I fear I will yet again have to drag [my partner] away at the end of our stay. The kids love the playground at Castle Hill, especially the tree which is slowly growing into a tree house. We hope to return again next year, or [maybe even] fit in a fishing trip later in the year. Can’t say enough about The Doug, we love it! Thanks for letting us stay.

We’ve been happy to return to The Doug each day to the comfort and relaxing vibe. Looking forward to returning during a bumper snow year. Thank you for the great hospitality.

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!! 🙂

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!

You have the most beautiful and unique house. This place really added to our perfect wedding weekend; we will be back whenever possible.

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.

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.

Thanks for a wonderful stay. What an amazing house – worthy of a feature on Grand Designs!

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.

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.
