Incredible location. Superb walks near by, plenty of fishing and swimming. A very special place. The house truck was just magical. Such a short drive from Nelson to get to this paradise. We will be returning!

We loved our stay at the house truck. It was the perfect secluded break we needed on our honeymoon roadtrip.
