Although the weather was not good we had a great time due to our hosts vast local knowlage ,plenty to do ,we will be going back in the summer .Crystal ,Phillip and all the animals made us feel so at home with good friends that at the end of our stay we did not want to go home, and that includes our dog who was made to feel part of their household. We give them 10 stars . Thank you for a great time, we all feel we have made new friends. Dean , Elaine, Tash , Dan and George5/5 by ,

We love staying here because it is such a children and dog friendly place. Everyone in the family feels relaxed and has something enjoyable to do. The hosts are also very friendly and helpful. We had a parents dinner night out while Christel minded the children for us free of charge. That was a priceless service!5/5 by ,
The property is overall very good to let the childern roam freely, mix with farm animals and enjoy the creek at the bottom of the property on hot summers days.5/5 by ,
Liptelvin was just lovely. Fantastic views to the snow capped mountains, great hosts & friendly pets. We took our pet Labradoodle & he had an absolute ball. We all enjoyed 3 very relaxing days. I would highly recommend this property, especially to those that want to enjoy a holiday with their own pets.5/5 by ,
The welcome was warm and inviting, by both Christel and Phillip, as well as enthusiastic Ben! I would certainly recommend Liptelvin Hillside retreat to anyone who would love to have a short break and bring pets along.5/5 by ,

Lovely to be able to take our dogs who had a ball. Beautiful views and it was lovely just to sit by the Delatite river which runs through their property. Christel and Phil were very nice people, very welcoming and friendly.5/5 by ,
I was so grateful to hosts Christel and Phillip when I arrived as my dog and I had been travelling in the car for 13 hrs and they welcomed us with warm smiles, cold drinks and even offered to cook me a meal! Just an amazing experience that went well beyond what you'd expect from the owners.Our room was really comfortable, private and had everything we needed for our short stay. The bed was wonderful as was the bathtub!My dog had a great time exploring this beautiful property and particularly loved her swims in the river which runs through it.We will definitely be back and will highly recommend to others.4/5 by ,
The hosts - Christel, Philip & Ben - warm, welcoming and helpful with advice on local activities, and lovingly caring for our elderly dog when we were out. The apartment is wonderful - light, bright and clean. Everything you need, from tissues to serving dishes. A peaceful property with spectacular views. Overall a relaxing and stress free place.5/5 by , VIC
This was a very relaxing weekend away for us. We loved the peace and tranquility and the kids absolutely loved all the animals and the pool table too. Christel was thee perfect host and made us feel very welcome - a home from home.5/5 by ,
Christel and Phillip were very welcoming and helpful and happy to spend a lot of time showing us around. Ben, their dog and Chino the cat were also wonderful hosts for my dog,Gypsy, who almost never makes friends with other dogs but actually wanted to play with Ben.And Chino is such a lovely welcoming cat! I've never seen a cat like her. We loved the river and the beautiful view from the house and enjoyed the very comfortable accommodation.Strongly recommended!5/5 by ,
Christel and Philip were very welcoming hosts and have a beautiful place with wonderful views where you can just sit back, relax and enjoy the environment. Christel brought us a lovely cup of tea when we arrived and chatted and walked around with us as our dog got used to the animals including the donkey and horses. We felt very comfortable to just stay and enjoy the property or come and go as we pleased. My son especially loved Sophie the donkey and our dog loved Ben. This is the best pet friendly place we have found and it is so nice to be able to have our dog inside with us. I would recommend this place to everyone but especially if you are travelling with a dog. The accommodation is excellent and if you are an art lover or artist - you will love Christel's interest and collection of art and paintings.5/5 by ,
We had a great stay just chilling & exploring the area with our 2 dogs. After some hectic weeks it was a terrific time out for us. Great to see all the animals & the instant dogfriend ben playing with our 2 in the river.5/5 by ,
Lovely setting and accomodating hosts, a place to do little or lots. Being able to take our little dog was our main reason for selecting Liptelvin however I'm sure non pet owners would also enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. Fantastic also for city kids to get up close to the animals!4/5 by ,
We love the Guest Manager - Christel and Phillip, they both are wonderful ! We miss them very much and we miss Ben too ! Ben is a very good tour guide while we were there...

Krystel and Philip are such a great host during our stay at Liptelvin. We stayed in their caravan which was a wonderful experience with everything you need from a electric blanket to gas stoves with all cookery stocked. Definately a pet friendly accomodation with horses, donkey, cat and dogs in their property. We were invited by the hosts to a fantastic dinner at Magnolia and watched together a local play. What a weekend to enjoy!The hospitality you get at Liptelvin will definately not disappoint you! Will definately go back again. Highly recommended5/5 by ,
Christel and Phillip where so friendly and caring it made our stay so enjoyable,my son loved the experience and our dog alfie thought he was in seventh heaven we will be back soon5/5 by ,
From the moment we arrived with our dog Rosie, Christel and Phillip couldn't do enough for us. Christel made us a freshly brewed coffee, which went down very nicely with the homemade biscuits she offered as well! We chose to stay in the caravan, which was extremely comfortable and fitted out with all the mod cons. We decided to go out for dinner on the Saturday night and Christel and Phillip very kindly offered to dogsit for us. Rosie was incredibly well looked after and spent the evening sitting on Phillip's lap! We couldn't have been more impressed with the accommodation on offer, the views and the wonderful hospitality from two lovely owners. Very very highly recommended!5/5 by , VIC

We had a lovely stay at Liptelvin, very relaxing in great surroundings and very caring hosts. It was a truly pet friendly place and our two dogs had a fantastic time as well. Our son enjoyed patting the horses and donkey and helping with one of the theme gardens. We have no hesitation in recommending Liptelvin for a lovely family holiday.5/5 by , VIC
what a beautiful spot!!! Christen and Phil are the nicest people, not to forget their lovely cat and dog, Chino and Ben!! they live in a lovely house in the middle of the hills, the room was nice and comfortable and the bathroom was pretty and spacious. I highly recommend it!!5/5 by , VIC
We found our stay at Liptelvin to be a tranquil place to relax and take in the beautiful surroundings of the mountains. The hospitality was astounding with Christel and Phillip going out of their way to make our weekend special in many ways; the vanilla slice was the best! The caravan was clean, spacious, comfortable and well equipped with everything you would need; the breakfast hamper is a must with that special touch of home-grown herbs. Our dog had the best time running free in the paddocks and swimming in the river, plus palying with Ben and getting to know the horses. We especially liked how our hosts cared for our dog while we were seeing the snow sights. We'll be back in the summer time to enjoy the river and hospitality from our hosts again. We recommend Liptelvin to anyone wanting a beautiful place to unwind and enjoy themselves in a great location with friendly and helpful hosts5/5 by , VIC

We had a wonderful stay at the Liptelvin Hillside Retreat. The apartment was comfortable, clean and inviting. Everything about Liptelvin just made us feel at home.Our hosts, Christel and Phillip were simply superb. Not only did they go out of their way to make us feel welcome, their pets did so as well. Warm and friendly in every way.We will most certainly be back. Our only regret this time around was that we had to cut our stay short of a day. But we promise to make it up the next time we're there.5/5 by , VICTORIA
Our stay was magnificent, the accommodation was clean, neat, and had excellent facilities. The little things were certainly noticed and appreciated for example: welcome coffee, fresh herbs for our use, fresh flowers in the kitchen, the good size pool table and lots of towels and linen. Lovely people to deal with and most helpful and very generous. Thank you so much for the herb plants and other plants give for us to take home. Beautiful location, especially we enjoy swim in the Delatite River that adjoining to the property. We would highly recommend for any one staying at LIPTELVIN HILLSIDE RETREAT.
