The Space

Mount Soho retreat is a 1980's build house, freshly renovated but retaining it's Arrowtown character. It sits on a large, beautifully landscaped and private section, with paths going around the garden among the trees, flower beds and rock walls.
The living, dining and kitchen area, as well as the sunroom, all look out onto gorgeous garden views. The living room features large, comfortable couches, a window seat, a smart TV and a woodburner. The sunroom, just off the dining area, is an ideal breakfast spot, with a table and chairs as well as a bench seat.
On the property is another small dwelling, a picturesque 1860's miner's stone house. The inside is not available to guests, but it makes a beautiful garden feature.
On the ground floor is three bedrooms, two with queen sized beds and one with a double and single bed as a bunk. There is also a full bathroom, seperate toilet and laundry downstairs.
Upstairs is another full bathroom, a small bedroom with a single bed and a massive master bedroom with a king size bed, walk in wardrobe, and a high ceiling with a chandelier. We can add airbeds for extra guests too.
The house is tastefully furnished throughout with pretty vintage furniture. The beds are all modern and comfortable.
The house is heated by a woodburner and electric panel heaters.
