Another winner, I could actually move in and live in this cottage, separate bedroom, full kitchen with stove/oven dinning area/sitting room and a porch to sit out on watching the geese walk by. You can sit outside for breakfast and look at the Franz Josef glacier. This would be an excellent spot for a large family with children, 10 min... More

Stayed at Perivale for 2 nights. Well equipped cottage located near Franz Josef village. We had tea at the verandah while enjoying views of the glacial mountains. unforgettable experience trying to milk a cow with machines. The cottage only has one cozy bedroom. Two sofa beds in the living room, but one was faulty and gave me a backache. A... More

Everything we needed in a perfect location. In the 7 weeks we were on South Island this has to be one of the cosiest places we stayed at. Being a keen birdwatcher being able to watch Spur winged plovers and NZ pigeon from an armchair was awesome! The eggs were really special and the milk was incredible. We will try... More

Beautiful little cottage, with a very usable kitchen. We loved the fact you were able to see the cow milking (although we missed it though as we slept in too late) The location is great and very handle for Franz Josef or Fox glacier. Would definitely visit again. Plenty to do in Franz, would definitely recommend sky diving, the views... More

The cottage is located on a working farm so in addition to fantastic mountain views we had cows outside the window, sheep and horses nearby, and chickens providing fresh eggs each day. Donna made us feel very welcome and was on hand to answer any questions about the animals and the area. The cottage is basic; however, extremely well equipped... More

this may not be the place for you. If you like good value, simple, clean, and basic accommodations, then it might just be for you. The cottage has everything needed and is warm and toasty. We had just enough firewood and no trouble getting the woodstove going. This came in handy as there were some intermittent power outages due to... More

A basic cottage, but has everything you need. Coming from Queensland I was worried I would be cold. Not a chance! Very toasty inside with choices of air con, oil heater and even fireplace. A whole wheelbarrow of wood was left for us and an axe is provided to chop up if needing kindling, which we did. Despite the rain,... More

Situated on the road after Franz Josef, this little old cottage that isn't perfect was extremely comfortable and warm. It has a heat pump (Air conditioner) and radiators that was enough to keep the place warm if you couldn't be bothered with the fire. We had to buy fire-lighters but failed at lighting the fire as there wasn't any kindling.... More

Accommodation is simple in an old cottage with a bedroom, separate wc and bathroom, and open plan lounge with kitchen area. There’s a great deck at the rear of the property with views over the farm and back to the glacier area just over the hill. Fittings are also simple. There’s a warm welcome, with milk fresh from the cow... More

We stayed at Perivale last March 2012 for 2 nights, and we loved it. The cottage may not seem so amazing from the outside, but when you get inside, it feels like home. It is self contained which made it more private, and the host's house is a few meters away. It is in a farm, but the cottage is... More
