☺Our second stay here, fabulous location, beautiful scenery, property spotlessly clean, Alpaca experience is absolutely delightful and they're so tame! Wonderful Aplaca scarves, garments, doonas and oh so soft Alpaca blankets. The hosts are so hospitable and helpful, we didn't want to leave! Oh yes the outdoor hot tub was heated for our arrival - very relaxing after a long bike ride, watching the sun set with a beer! ☹No complaints from us...

☺The owner is very friendly:) We liked there. Nice stay with those warming people. ☹Didn’t go to Milford Sound because of the flood. But we can not blame the weather.

☺Ray was super friendly! He took time to educate us about the alpacas. He even opened his store so we could look around and make a few purchases. The views were stunning and the hot tub was a nice touch! We were able to launder our clothes which was super helpful on a long trip! Kitchen was well equipped, bed was comfortable, and good water pressure in the shower. Very clean, would definitely stay again!
