Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing property!!!! We booked Play Shack 5 for a weekend away with friends, our only regret was that we didn't stay longer!! Was such an amazing property on a very beautiful piece of land. We knew the property was going to be amazing from the photos we had seen, though we were blown away once we arrived. Suzanne the property manager was great to deal with. We will defiantly be back next year!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful property Wow what a fantastic stay! We stayed here for 4 nights & spent our days in the snow at Mt Buller & each night back at this beautiful spot. The heating was excellent, the beds were amazingly comfortable, the coffee machine perfect. And the gorgeous riverside location is the icing on the cake. Early morning strolls along the river were blissful. An easy drive into Mansfield & up the mountain to Buller. We could not fault the property & honestly cannot wait to return again and see this place in summer. Thank you so much Suzanne for your outstanding service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Stay!! We had a mid year strategy corporate conference at the play shack and enjoyed every minute of it. We were in playshack 5 which allowed us all to have our own space but also come together when we needed to! The lodge was immaculate when we arrived and the river and backyard area was fantastic. We will definitely be going up again! perfect for big groups of people
