Stayed for one night and really enjoyed it. Felt very welcomed and was able to use free unlimited WiFi, the kitchen and even offered homemade bread which was delicious. Would definitely recommend if you have a car.

People who choose to stay here are mostly mature backpackers. No party animals, no drinkers, but purely a great stop to rest and being relax. The homestay is literally a "home." Very home coming atmosphere. And their thoughtfulness really comforts a traveler's soul. Highly recommand if you want to feel the tranquility of Te Anau.

Rosie's homestay was a lovely house near the edge of Te Anau run and still lived in by the owners. The rooms and facilities were very clean and comfortable and we slept very well and felt like we were at home. The homestay also has a spacious yard and a small parking lot in front.

We had a wonderful stay here, even though Rosie was out on a cycling trip :) Our room was bright and beds were very comfortable. Bathrooms were very clean. Kitchen was large and really well equipped, but there weren't many spices to use, so make sure you bring your own.There was some homemade goodies in the kitchen for purchase... I... More

This really is a home, and you stay in the extra bedrooms. Except for doing your own cooking (and having a big kitchen and dining room), it's pretty much like visiting a friendly relative. You may even get to talk to visiting neighbors in the dining room. The common room / living room is much like home. Rosie and Alister... More

Rosie's is like a home away from home. We spent two separate nights there, we spent one night in between at Milford Sound. Rosie and Alistair are very welcoming and friendly. It really is a homestay. A small number of rooms are available, and it is Rosie and Alistair's home, they use the kitchen and dining room, so you know... More

There was a moment here when we looked around our room in wonder. Curtains. Furniture. Carpet. It felt like home, not like the threadbare interrogation cells you often get at hostels. The pans in the kitchen are not just scrap metal. The toilets and showers smell nice. The bikes are free. Rosie is friendly and helpful. If only every place... More

We spend three nights at Rosie's and rank as one of our top stays of our month long trip. The atmosphere is very laid back and the facilities are spotless. Rossie and Alistair are excellent hosts and incredibly knowledgeable about the area and hiking trails. We planned to hike Gertrude's saddle after our first night and Alistair was extremely helpful...

What a nice stay! Super cozy and nice house, showers, rooms, lounge area and kitchen. We felt like at home. Def would stay there again - great value for the money. The downside - pricy wi fi and ridiculous 10$ for staying in the kitchen after check out.
