We are a family of five, with twin boys and daughter all in their teens. We have lived in Raetihi now for four years and love the community spirit here. We also own a cafe in the town Angel Louise Cafe which is certainly a hub for locals.

During your stay

We are happy to assist where ever you need it, but this is your cottage for the time during your stay, though with your permission we are happy to stoke the fire so the place is lovely and warm when you return during winter.
Sometimes you may find us in our games room, if we are we'll give you a shout to see if you want to join us, no obligation. Just a great opportunity for families to meet.
