Our popular Fiery Peak Cottage is now closed but guests wanting a private, luxury, rural, romantic escape for couples can book our newly built Fiery Peak Chalet - set amongst 12 acres of trees: this beautiful open-plan chalet looks out across farmland to the mountains, stunning night skies, soak in the wood-fired hot tub. (can be booked as an extra: $45 one night/$60 2 nights). Book here, or on the new listing for the Chalet or hop online & find us at StayGeraldine for more info and photos.

The space
Built in 2022, Fiery Peak Chalet 66 sqm has been designed with the environment in mind. Powered by the sun, supplied with our own pristine spring water (UV filtered, unchlorinated), set amongst 12 acres of trees: this beautiful open-plan chalet looks out across farmland to the mountains. Your time at the chalet will allow you to disconnect from the stresses of life, and reconnect with the beauty of a natural environment
Gaze at the mountains from the king bed through open bi-fold windows, take a long soak in the handcrafted (Lignum) woodfired hot tub, gaze at the splendour of a sky full of stars, listen to bird song, BBQ your dinner on the deck while you watch the sun go down behind Fiery Peak, linger while the sky changes colour and ducks fly home for the night, recharge your soul.

If you have time, there's a lot to do in and around Geraldine using Fiery Peak as a base for a 2 or 3 night stay:
Take a day trip to Peel Forest (Horse treks, bush walks), Lake Tekapo (ice-skating, snow tubing, hot pools), Mt Cook (Hooker Valley, Sealy Tarn walks), Mt Sunday (Lord of the Rings film site), book an evening 2hr tour of the night sky at Geraldine Observatory, OR just relax in the cottage beside the fire with a book with no one to bother you, popping into Geraldine to check out Barker's new cafe and food store or other restaurants/ Geraldine cheese factory-shop.

BBQ: We have a Weber BBQ for guests to use. It is just gorgeous sitting outside enjoying the evening, cooking, dining and wining with the back-drop of the mountains.

LATE CHECK-OUT: Because I hate to rush when I am away on holiday, at Fiery Peak Cottage you can stay till mid-day if your schedule allows. So wake up, relax, enjoy the morning coffee and cooked breakfast before heading away. Check out anytime up to noon.

If you need anything to eat.. there are some lovely restaurants & cafes to choose from in Geraldine, just 8 mins drive away. Alternatively and possibly better, grab a cooked chicken, selection of salads and bottle of wine from the local supermarket and make the most of your time to relax at the cottage. Takeaways also available from Royal India, Q Foods, or Jack’s Chinese Takeaway/Fish and Chips.

Guests say that the night sky at Fiery Peak is as good as Tekapo. With the telescope provided, you can check out the evening sky from the deck of the cottage or book with Peter at the Geraldine Observatory for a comprehensive 2-hour tour of the night sky.

NB: If you are looking for something for a bigger group or more central to Geraldine, please check out Hot tub @ PUKEKO COTTAGE. This home is fully outfitted, with King ensuite bedroom, queen, plus bunk room and king single beds- can sleep up to 10 with spa.
This can also be booked as an apartment for two - check my other listings below. We welcome direct bookings through StayGeraldine.

Kia ora,
My name is Kay. I've been an Airbnb host for just over 4 years running Pukeko Cottage & Apartment in Geraldine and Fiery Peak Eco- Cottage (and recently opened Fiery Peak Chalet on our 12 acre property in Pleasant Valley. It really has been a pleasure to meet people from all over the world. I'm always trying to improve my homes so that they can be the best experience for my guests. So feel free to make a suggestion if you have an idea that would be nice to add.

Keith and I have four children, whom we have homeschooled right through their school life. They have all now gone on to live their own lives and careers in the UK, Melbourne, Christchurch and Palmerston North.
We have a piece of paradise in Pleasant Valley, where we live - 12 acres of forested farmland, clean air, stunning views, native NZ birds flying over head, sheep grazing, fruit trees and large vege garden. We are totally off grid ( make our own electricity via solar panels), have our own beautiful spring water, and try to be as organic as possible with all we grow, eat and put on our soil.

We love hosting new people from all areas of the globe, so are really excited to be sharing our homes with you.

We look forward to having you stay.
Kay
