You could not fault this accommodation. A lot of thought gone into supplying what a traveller needs. Roomy, sunny, quiet, with a lovely view out to the Mts. We were able to catch up with Laundry and dry it "outside" in the sun, as stayed 2 nights, taking in a day trip to Doubtful Sound. No rush to check out,... More

Our EVERY need was catered for. I have never stayed anywhere where such careful consideration has gone into the preparation of accommodation. We stayed 1 night before an overnight Doubtful Sound cruise - 2 families of 5. Zeb graciously allowed us late checkout. Each cottage has its own washing machine (washing powder provided) and dryer so caught up on lots... More

Loved the Stella Burn cottage. Was very cozy, temperature was very comfortable inside even when chilly outside (unlike other rather drafty places we've stayed in New Zealand). Neighborhood was quite peaceful, and we enjoyed watching a beautiful sunrise out the kitchen window. Kitchen had everything needed for dining in, convenient to have washer (and dryer) in cottage, and everything was... More

Thank you for the great review. If you are able to get back sometime would be great. Manapouri and Fiordland have so much to offer and sometimes people are in to much of a hurry. We hope the rest of your travels in NZ went or are still going well. All the best Zeb and Janicel More

This property is spotlessly clean, which is a big thing for us. It was nice sitting out on the deck with a glass of wine watching the sun go down. We were really lucky, and the two days we had there, the weather was glorious. Due to this, both nights we had a bbq. Had that not have been the... More

We wanted to be as close as possible to Pearl Harbour for our early morning departure on our Doubtful Sound cruise and decided to base ourselves in Mannapouri. What a great decision, and our cottage was perfect for the job! It had everything we wanted including fantastic laundry facilities which meant I could do all my washing and drying within... More

Stayed here for two nights prior to an overnight cruise on Doubtful Sound. A very spacious two bed roomed cottage with a fantastic view. Zeb provided us with good local knowledge on what to see and do in Manapouri and Lake Tenahu. A great spot to stay.

This was a fabulous find in the middle of our New Zealand trip. Only wish we could have stayed more than one night. Laundry was a fabulous resource as we could wash before heading to Doubtful Sound and then a 3 day Routeburn track trip. Lovely cottage with fabulous views - more spacious than we needed. Relaxing and wonderful!

We stayed at Acheron Cottages over New Years 2014/15. We booked both cottages and had friends and our 10 month daughter with us. Zeb was really welcoming and helpful. The cottages are extremely well presented and Zeb was always on hand to provide anything we ever needed. I would strongly recommend to anyone passing through or stopping in Manapouri, well... More
