Our unit was large and comfortable, and there was air conditioning! The days we were there, it was quite hot, so we really appreciated the AC. The kitchen has all the utensils and appliances, and there was even a grill out on the deck. We cooked a meal instead of eating out one evening, and it was really nice. The... More

We stayed in a one bedroom cottage which was spotlessly clean and comfortable with good facilities. We booked 2 trips through the office here, one to Miford Sound and one to the Glow worm Caves, both which we were really happy with. The owners were helpful and friendly and we would have no hesitation in staying again if ever in... More

We loved this little cottage. It was quiet, private, and within walking distance of the little downtown area of Te Anau. Ray was extremely helpful with booking tours and transportation. Reliable Wifi, hot showers, kitchen, clean and well kept.

When we tried to organise accommodation, it was fully booked, but we were offered a house down the road which worked great for a family of 5. We had 3 bedrooms, with ample beds as well as fold out sofa beds in the lounge room. The house was clean and tidy and serviced each day we were there, which was... More

We took the three bedroom cottages. Its a cozy small house which is just right for my family. We love the fact that there is a bbq seating area just outside out cottage and a big swing. The place is children friendly. There is a playground for the kids to play. The town is just less than 5mins away. The... More

We had 3 nights here and would have happily stayed longer. The owners gave us a very warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was very clean and of good quality. Very comfortable bed and good shower. Our cottage had lovely views. Short drive from Town. Would recommend a stay here.

Hosts,Leonie & Ray, were very accommodating, hospitable & friendly. Birchwood Cottages are within easy walking distance of Te Anau town centre. We found the cottages tidy, well equipped & beds very comfortable. Ray made himself available to drive us to our meeting point for the Hollyford Track.. We will contact for a booking on our next visit to the area.

Lovely basic/family cottages where you can feel right at home. Warm cozy loungue with a oven style fire place. Has all that you need for a self contained stay and well fitted out kitchen. Beds are comfy with warm duvets/doonas and a free selection of DVDs to keep you entertained in the evening in the cozy lounge.
