“Fantastic accommodation with stunning views!”
Reviewed 11 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Such a beautiful, peaceful place to stay. Everything you could want is provided, down to the delicious home made preserves with the breakfast selection! Only 10-15 mins to Hanmer Springs Thermal Resort, and many delightful shops there too. You can't help but relax, in this peaceful location. We were even offered the owner's swimming pool and spa, to swim in! Comfy beds, and couches, everything is decorated to a high level. I would have no hesitation recommending this place as a delightful stop on any vacation. The owners were very approachable, informing us with local knowledge, and great things to do. Thank you.

“Fantastic country cottage”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We arrived late in the evening after dinner at Hanmer Springs, to a roaring fire and a wonderfully warm cottage.

It is very spacious and roomy, for our travelling group of 3 adults and one child, and we particularly loved the puppies who came along with Richard to welcome us.

They came to visit the next morning, which is when we found the wonderful view outside our windows, and the incredible breakfast which had been provided for us.

Modern, warm, clean and very nicely decorated, this was

We highly recommend the cottage, and Richard and Antoinette as hosts.

“Excellent accommodation, wonderful hosts”
Reviewed 22 February 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed at Pahau Downs for two nights. It is in a lovely, remote location with beautiful views of the surrounding hills. It is an ideal retreat and yet close enough to local towns and attractions to make it easy to get out and about and experience the delights of New Zealand.

The house is well equipped, comfortable and has all that you need (washing machine, fresh ground coffee and a lovely sitting room). We felt very comfortable and the owners of the property were lovely, they could not have been more welcoming and hospitable.
