Due to the current uncertainties regarding travel and bookings over this unprecedented time we are including a note here regarding bookings during the global coronavirus pandemic. Firstly we aim to continue through the pandemic all the way to a more normal operating environment sometime in the future. Fortunately our cost structure allows us to weather this worldwide health storm. Our current and future guests should not worry about the availability of accommodation during the next few years when booking either of our two houses in Lumsden. Secondly travel into New Zealand is changing. New Zealand residents can return from overseas however they still need isolate for a short period at home, before being allowed back into the community. Open travel between Australia and New Zealand should resume by the 31st of July 2022 and the requirements for this activity are still to be established. Fully vaccinated international tourists are welcomed into New Zealand by October 2022 - again the requirements for this travel are still to be set.

 Our Government wishes to have "quarantine free" travel into New Zealand when possible. We want to assure all our current and future guests we are being very flexible and accommodating regarding bookings. Some guests have bookings that they may not be able to achieve due to travel restrictions. We can either....

- refund your booking (less a $NZ100 fee which covers our bank transfer and other costs)

 - honour your booking amount for another date

 - transfer your booking to our holiday house in Australia ( which has recently opened the borders for vaccinated tourists)  for guests who are happy to take this option see www.edzellonlakejindabyne.com

Please email us regarding any concerns you may have about making a booking or staying in our houses. We hope you all keep safe and well during this unusual health and travel environment. We also look forward to the time when you can confidently book a holiday in Lumsden and travel safely again to enjoy this scenic and restful part of New Zealand, regards Roger and Marina Lindsay
