Ken & Anna McNally welcome you to Alpine Views!
As our name might suggest, we are located in the foothills of the Canterbury Plains with panoramic views of the stunning Southern Alps in the South Island of New Zealand. Our place is 3 hours drive from Kaikoura, 3.5 hours to Mt Cook and just 4.5 hours to Queenstown along the Inland Scenic Route 72.
We are only just over one hour`s drive from Christchurch International Airport and only 15 mins from the well known Mt Hutt Ski Area. We are also an easy 15 min drive from Methven, a town boasting a wide array of cafes, restaurants and plenty of things to do.
Our home is situated in the midst of 3 acres of parklike gardens and beyond this stretches 60 acres of farmland, where we graze cattle and sheep and raise lambs and calves in the spring.
We have many pets and a team of 8 working sheep dogs - you will get to see these working dogs in action and hand feed other farm animals when you come to stay!
Our accommodation is clean and comfortable with separate ensuite facilities. We can also accommodate up to 12 campervans - park amongst mature trees with fantastic mountain views.
You will wake up to incredible tranquility and a hearty country breakfast served in the gardens or on the deck if the weather is fine. Dinner is additional and can be arranged on request and is to be recommended as Anna is an excellent cook (or so Ken says and he should know...)
This is a genuine New Zealand experience staying with warm and friendly people in a true South Island village. Staveley is the gateway to the Mt Somers Walking tracks as well as the popular ice skating rink.
Your place remains to be one of my favourite travel spots. I,m really thankful to have met you and your husband. You made us feel so welcome in NZ and we had a first class kiwi hospitality. It was the highlight of our trip. Thanks Suliani, from Singapore. April 2012
