We only stayed one night- quite suitable - near the ferry parking area. The place would be more suited to a longer stay - very well appointed. friendly and helpful owner - suggested a good drive and walk.

Thanks for your feedback, yes we agree getting wi-fi into the cottage would be a great asset to guests and we are working on a solution currently.

My husband, my sister, her partner and I stayed at this beautiful cottage for two nights from 11th to 13th October. The accommodation was tastefully furnished and as presented on the internet. It was ideal for two couples with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The beds were extremely comfortable and every amenity was provided. It was an ideal location to venture out on Doubtful Sound, the glow worm caves and trips to Te Anu and Invercargill. I was very impressed with the professionalism and helpfulness of Jess and really appreciated her timely responses to all emails. I look forward to returning in the future

“WONDERFUL place to stay - great kitchen, well equipped and spotless!”

We absolutely LOVED our stay in this great home! It is ideally set up for two couples, although we were only one couple staying! It is sunny, spacious and spotlessly clean. It was great to come off a multi-day hike, and be able to clean our clothes in the washer supplied (even with washing powder!).

Both bedrooms have their own bathroom, which is lovely. The bathrooms are small, but functional.

The kitchen was really the highlight. VERY well equipped, and utterly LOVED the fact that coffee beans and a grinder were supplied! (and a coffee plunger, too, of course). Also a good selection of spices, and even flour!

From here, we could just walk down to the jetty where we picked up our Doubtful Sound cruise, which was great.

We stayed in 10 rental accommodation properties during our trip down the south Island and this was by far the best house that we rented.Presentation was outstanding and the house was clean and warm which was great as it was snowing outside. Nothing was left out inside the house. Thanks for the great stay owners !!

We actually stayed at No 18 which is next door to No 16. The house was the best equipped house we stayed in during our 5 week holiday in NZ. It is very modern, clean and comfortable. The house is a short walk from Lake Manapouri and a good base for Te Anau and Milford Sound. The owner is extremely knowledgeable about the area as she works for the DOC (Department of Conservation) and gave us lots of useful advice for our trip to Milford Sound which was the highlight of our holiday in NZ. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property but if you are travelling there from the East coast (as we were) make sure you stock up on some Sand Fly repellent which seem rife along the West coast before you arrive, these little devils love new arrivals!
