We loved our stay here and would definitely return. A great spot to relax and enjoy Fiordland. ☺ Great little cottage providing us with our own private space and everything we needed. Welcoming hosts and alpaca experience a bonus. ☹ Nothing. Everything was great.

Perfect ☺ Wonderful welcome from friendly hosts. On arrival on a mid-winter afternoon the heating was on adding to the welcoming feeling. The accommodation is spotless and includes a very comfortable bed, full cooking facilities, laundry, dishwasher and even a jar of coffee beans and a grinder so you can make fresh coffee. Located very close to Manapouri village but set in a beautiful garden and alpaca farm. For us the best feature was relaxing on a cold night in the spa pool just outside the door looking up at the night sky. Highly recommended.
