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.
“Located in picturesque Castle Hill Village just 2 minutes from the iconic rocks at Castle Hill, this Airbnb comes with all the modern touches and amenities you need, including electric blankets for a cozy night in -as we awoke to snow!! The kitchenette had everything we needed and more for cooking meals and the hosts gave us a great reminder of bringing groceries as there is no supermarket nearby. The unit is wonderfully suited to small children too, there are plenty of toys and games that kept our daughter occupied for hours. The host was super lovely to chat to, and just upstairs should we have needed anything at all. This is a great place to stop off along your adventures.”
Forest Lodge is a remote off-grid lodge located deep in the Craigieburn Range. Located 6km up the gravel Mt Cheeseman Skifield Rd, you will find a little slice of paradise. Surrounded in lush native beech forest and vast tussucklands, Forest Lodge is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Your private twin room provides a perfect base for mountain-biking, hiking, skiing (winter months only), or is a great place to get your creative juices flowing in nature.
“Forest Lodge made for an excellent one nighter for us traveling from the west coast and into Otago. Twin beds only but after weeks on the road together we were both ok with a little space to ourselves. Great kitchen for cooking your meals, lovely host, cute pup and incredible country. We could have stayed and trekked for days.”

“Absolutely beautiful environment! Pam was delightful and the accommodation was superb! Conveniently located for the T-Alpine to Greymouth or Arthur’s Pass without the hassle of Christchurch. Stars at night were brilliant. Sunrise was amazing! A perfect place to get away from it all!!!”
