The house is privately located 4km north (3-4 min drive) from Franz. Surrounded by natural rainforest, the house boasts spectacular views of Lake Mapourika, sprawling valley-farmland, the Southern Alps & epic sunsets. Unwind in the hot tub, tucked away in your own little rainforest cove, rich with bird life & enjoy your favourite drink whilst stargazing through the gap in the forest canopy above. Relax on the large deck or plug in your laptop to the projector and set up your own home theatre.

The space
The house is modern and spacious and in a private setting. The open plan living area provides the perfect space for dining and spending quality time with your friends and family. The master bedroom has one king bed, the second bedroom has one queen bed and the third bedroom has one double bed. In addition there is the option of utilising the sofa-bed in the living room if required - this can be made up prior to your arrival. The house sleeps up to 8 people (4 couples) and there is also a porta-cot available on request. There is plenty of room for parking.

The large deck and it's giant native wood outdoor table is a great place to dine, relax and take in all the views on offer; valley farmland sprawls towards the north until it meets stunning Lake Mapourika, the Southern Alp mountains tower from the Sou-East and to the West, you can catch the most incredible sunsets.

The neighbourhood is quiet and safe so you can indulge in a sense of peace and tranquility. In bad weather, you can create your very own home cinema with the projector screen provided (simply plug your personal laptop in!) or soak in the hot tub nestled amongst rainforest.

The house is well insulated with a log burner (wood and fire lighting materials are supplied) for those cold or stormy nights as well as other sources of heating if required.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all your basic cooking needs met such as salt and pepper, a range of spices, oil, tea, coffee and sugar.

There is a mountain bike/running or walking loop track through the rain forest located in close proximity the property.
