Ben Ohau, South Island

Detailed location provided after booking

Scenic views
This unique, glass-roofed cabin is located just 10 minutes from Twizel, New Zealand, and just over seven miles off the Tekapo-Queenstown road set right in the middle of the beautiful rolling hills of the Mackenzie Country landscape. Part of the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve, the area is protected from light pollution by local bylaws, meaning the stars guests see are some of the clearest in the world. Being close enough to town life when wanted, but private and secluded enough to feel like there’s nobody else, this gorgeous escape is in the perfect location.
