Only 15mins South of Arthur's Pass Village, on SH73, the ecolodge overlooks the expansive Waimakariri River and mountains of the National Park. My home is completely "off grid" and set amidst native bush and birdsong. to stay costs $165 per night for bed and breakfast (for 2 people). I am happy to provide the evening meal if you advise me before arrival.
The Loft is a very cosy couples retreat, basking in full day sun. Situated on a 2 1/2 acre rural property 12 kms east of Arthur's Pass village, and bordering Arthur's Pass National Park, The Loft is surrounded by native beech forest and is a haven for birdlife. Please note: there is WiFi, but cell coverage is limited between Castle Hill and Arthur's Pass, so be sure to have directions and entry details with you. It is a comfortable two hour drive to/from Christchurch International Airport.
Castle Hill Studio is so new, the landscaping is still in progress! The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need after a day exploring the nearby Ski fields, Craigieburn trails, Cave Stream, and Kura Tawhiti (Castle Hill Rocks) from your doorstep. This spacious, fully serviced, basement studio has its own private entry, with secure bike or ski storage by arrangement. While the studio is spacious, it is best suited to couples, small children can be accommodated by prior arrangement.
