“Perfect little "nest" with spectacular view”
Reviewed 30 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

What a beautiful cottage - the outlay is very cleverly done and the it is very well equipped. The furnishing is very tasteful and everything is in very good order. It also has a spectacular view of the mountains. We certainly enjoyed a very peaceful long weekend in this very quiet town and lovely "home" - it was so quiet you could hear yourself thinking!! It was a wonderful rest and certainly a place to enjoy with family and friends where you see and hear no one but just yourself in the luxury of a "cosy" and pretty place that is well serviced and maitained!!

“If you stay here in winter, be prepared to freeze.”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

When booking this accommodation you need to understand that you will be staying in what used to be a container. The one side has stacking doors and windows with no curtains or blinds. You have a view of the neighbour's house and of the mountain but you have no privacy at all and no insulation against the cold or heat. We absolutely froze even with the wall heaters on and the fire place going. I imagine you will die from the heat in this place in summer. The place is close to the centre of town but is also close to the township. We could hear the noise from the township in the evenings. The place was clean but is starting to show wear in places.

Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate constructive criticism.
The 2 bedroom cottage is an architecturally designed container home! It's unique style has received various accolades from previous guests over the course of the last year.
We have managed this establishment from October 2015 and have not had any complaints about the cold, or the township! I am sorry that you were inconvenienced by this!
The container receives northern sunlight almost full day in winter which heats up the whole unit very generously.
We are aware that it can become warm in summer, but we are installing an overhang patio roof by the end of August to shade the open windows and sitting room from the summer sun and simultaneously provide outside sheltering.
In terms of the interior we are refreshing the entire unit in August as part of our annual maintenance programme.
We are looking into a solution to provide blinds/curtains on the stacking doors without impacting the modern open design with the view of the mountains.
