Our house was one of the original Ministry of Works houses built to house the workers on the Power Project. It has been extensively renovated and is fully wheel chair accessible. There are two bathrooms and it is very spacious, warm and sunny, with two large heat pumps and a log burner (firewood supplied) to keep you cool in summer and warm in winter.
The house is centrally located and close to reserves, playing fields and walkways, with shops and restaurants just minutes walk away. It is on a back section, very quiet with great views of the night sky and plenty of off street parking. The space is decorated with a collection of our favourite pieces of art and a well stocked library of books for you to enjoy during your stay and making sure you feel right at home.
Home Away from Home offers:
  • Fully “Accessible” home (please see details below)
  • A great location in Twizel, a 2 minute walk to the township’s marketplace including cafes and supermarkets.
  • A large living area with Freeview TV
