The stunning Night Sky Cottages are now available for your exclusive use.

Exclusive use means you are booking both “Kea Cottage” and “Kahu Cottage” and full use of all their facilities including the Stoked stainless steel double outdoor gas heated bath tub.

Night Sky Cottages are located on the outskirts of the Twizel township, close enough to be able to easily enjoy the local restaurants and cafes but perfectly positioned to spend the evening viewing the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve. Each of the cottages are fully self contained.

Relax under the clear night sky; watch the Milky Way rise overhead, look for falling stars and follow satellites across the night sky. Kahu has a spacious open plan lounge & dining room opening onto a private deck with garden & mountain views. There’s also a comfy sofa in a sunny nook off the entrance and near the back deck, from where you can also relax and watch the sun go down.

The bathroom includes shower, toilet, vanity, fan heater & a heated towel rail. The fully equipped laundry has it’s own room beside the nook. There is no guest access to Kahu’s garage.

Kea Cottage is smaller than Kahu but just as luxurious & very private. The lounge and dining area are cosy & compact, the lounge opens out onto the front deck with garden & mountain views.

Both cottages have great views of Ben Ohau Range, and the spectacular sunrises & fabulous sunsets the high country is famous for. Night Sky Cottages- as the name suggests- are right beneath the magnificent night sky of the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve. During winter you may even catch sight of the Aurora Australis, the Southern Lights (aka Lady Aurora) dancing on the southern horizon.

Guests have access to the surrounding lawns, herb garden, spinach and strawberry patch, gooseberry, blackberries & currant canes (when in season) & a large wild flower garden. Feel free to use the herbs & vegetables and to pick the berries & flowers (leaving enough for following guests of course!)

Twizel is the heart of the Mackenzie High Country and the cottages are a perfect base for guests to explore the fabulous Mackenzie Basin and enjoy the great outdoors. With five large lakes, numerous rivers and several dozen kilometres of turquoise blue canals within a 50km radius, there’s plenty of places to enjoy your favourite watersport or fish for that trophy trout or salmon.

The world famous A2O (Alps to Ocean) Cycle Track passes through Twizel, and in fact section three of the trail- Twizel to Lake Ohau- passes the cottages’ front gate on its way to the lake (stay in Kahu Cottage and relax those weary bodies in our outdoor bathtub right under the stars).

Aoraki/Mt Cook National Park, the Hooker Valley & Tasman Glacier are just 40 minutes drive away (Twizel is the closest village to Mt Cook). Lakes Tekapo, Alexandrina, McGregor and the Mt John Observatory just 50 minutes drive.

To the south, Lake Ohau, Omarama’s Clay Cliffs, the Upper Waitaki Lakes and the Ahuriri Valley are all within easy reach by vehicle and are also less than an hour’s drive away. Lake Ruataniwha, the Ohau Canals & Lake Benmore are all just a few kilometres away on the outskirts of Twizel.
