Theses villas are quiet, tranquil, restful, tastefully decorated, spacious, very clean, and well equipped. Loved the pillows. I had a wonderful nights sleep and woke to a view of the snow covered Southern Alps. The villas are within a few kilometres drive from the Franz Josef township. I would highly recommend this accommodation.

Room Tip: quiet, clean, tasteful

Hi SL_NZ1,

Thanks for these great comments, the view from some of the villas is pretty good on a fine day.

stayed for 1n in a two-bedroom villa. very spacious and homey with comfortable living room area and well-equipped kitchen. the gentleman running the facility was very friendly, lent us a bbq for no charge and gave helpful suggestions for onward journey. we also enjoyed feeding the animals in the yard. the mountain view from the garden was very nice. overall, very good value for money, would go again if in franz josef.

Hello urmsu888, thanks for taking the time to post your comments on here. I must admit we were thinking that you were a little strange wanting to cook outside on the BBQ during winter, but the weather was fairly kind to you, it didn't rain to much.

Im glad that you seemed to enjoy your stay with us.

Very comfortable and warm!!
We had a very warm welcome.

We stayed at Glenfern Villas for a couple of nights in the 2 bedroom apartments. They were modern, very clean and comfortable. Good cooking facilities, heating and amenities. Close to town if you have a car a bit of a walk if not. The owners and office staff were extremely helpful with general information around the area. Highly recommend and would stay there again.

Clean and modern villas. Warm, comfortable, good parking space outside villa. An amazing view form front door. Great location for Franz Josef and Fox Glacier. Friendly and helpful reception. Local knowledge and help with rescheduling one of our tours was a great bonus.
