Retreat to New Zealand Wilderness

Cotton Candy

Escape to Cotton Candy, an enchanting mountain cabin inspired by legendary New Zealand aviator Jean Batten, known for her record-breaking solo flights during the 1930s, remains an iconic figure in aviation history. 


Nestled in a rural setting with breathtaking views of the Southern Alps' tallest peaks, including Mount Cook and Mount Tasman, Cotton Candy offers a whimsical retreat. The interior design of the cabin pays tribute to Jean's adventurous personality. Dusty pinks and brass tones create a soft, calming, and elegant ambiance.  The comfortable queen bed, adorned with opulent pink and brass accents, promotes rest and relaxation. The cabin features a compact yet well-equipped kitchenette, allowing you to prepare meals during your stay if desired. The open-plan layout seamlessly combines the bedroom, kitchenette, dining area, and living space, providing a cozy and intimate atmosphere that resonates with Jean Batten's sense of style and era.

Step outside onto the deck/balcony and take in the panoramic views of the valley farmland and the majestic Southern Alps (including New Zealand's tallest mountain, Aoraki/Mount Cook), just as Jean Batten did during her daring flights. For the ultimate relaxation, indulge in the luxury of your private outdoor cedar bath, designed for two people, unwind and gaze at the starry night sky, a truly memorable experience all within a 5-minute drive from tourist attractions and activities in Fox Glacier. 

Jean Batten (1909–1982) was a trailblazing New Zealand aviator known for her record-breaking solo flights. She achieved the first solo flight from England to New Zealand in 1936, a feat that stood for 44 years. Batten also set records for solo flights between England and Australia, as well as England and Brazil. Despite her remarkable achievements, she faced challenges during World War II and lived a reclusive life until her death in Mallorca in 1982. Her story went unnoticed until it was discovered by a journalist in 1987.
