Interaction with guests

Hosts live close by, so will meet and greet, and then leave you to enjoy your stay - but only a phone call away :)
We sincerely appreciate if guests text/SMS to tell us when they arrive safely if arriving late at night.

Other things to note

We have an outdoor barbeque that guests are welcome to use - as we have salmon farms all around Twizel, guests may purchase fresh salmon to cook - some complimentary condiments are in the kitchen pantry/fridge but supermarkets are 100m walk in the Village marketplace to buy any other foodstuffs for meals and breakfasts.

Cute, quirky, retro little cottage! The cottage was lovely and clean and very well equipped. Easy walking distance to all of Twizel's amenities. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay :)

Excellent and quiet location within a short walk of the centre of town. We enjoyed the "retro" furnishings!

Response from Michelle:
Thanks for your feedback - the precious wee Twizel hydro houses lend themselves to a real retro flair, and it's great when our lovely guests enjoy that theme as well.

I love this cottage! It was beautifully decorated with retro furniture. There were many condiments in the kitchen available for the guests to use. There was also music playing in the house when we stepped in, which we thought was a nice touch. My family and I enjoyed our stay here! Highly recommended!

We had a lovely stay in Twizel at the Rua Cottage. It was very comfortable for the two of us, and would be for more since it has two bedrooms. The cottage itself was spotlessly clean and updated with modern fixtures. We really enjoyed all the retro furnishings and you can tell that someone has taken a lot of care putting everything together. The location is perfect to easy access to the town centre (you can drive half a kilometer) or walk there, plus it's quick to get on the main road to head to Mt Cook, which is about 40 minutes away. We would definitely come back!

Chose this unit as a convenient location between Queensland and Mt Cook. We did not manage to meet Michelle but she was very responsive and helpful in her messages. The apt itself is visually appealing, clean and comfortable.
