Kepler Mountain View is a 5 acre livestyle property at Lake Manapouri along the Southern Scenic Route on the fringe of the Manapouri township. We have 6 adult alpacas and one baby cria born 21 November 2013. We also have a flock of Wiltshire sheep (very friendly) on our livestyle property along with their lambs. Guests staying at our Motu-au Close Cottages are welcome to come along to our Kepler Mountain View property to visit our alpacas and sheep.
We card and felt our own alpaca wool, examples are shown on our Alpaca and Products page and available for sale.
At Kepler Mountain View our water supply is fresh Fiordland rainwater which has no need for chemical processing. Enjoy drinking and showering in Fiordlands pure rain water. All our properties are all fully insulated and constructed from renewable resources. We are carbon positive with a 25 hectare forestry block planted in 1995 which off sets our own carbon footprint. We use a professional cleaner in all our cottages to ensure the properties are presented to a high consistant standard, our cleaner uses eco friendly cleaning products.
Your hosts, Jessie and Ray are both involved in working in Fiordland National Park and can help you with planning your trip to maximise your time while exploring Fiordland National Park and the surrounding Te Anau Basin.
Lake Manapouri is a scenic 10 to 15 minute drive from Te Anau.
