Everything was as expected. Cooking facilities worked well and it was great to be able to do a laundry. The hosts were helpful and friendly, and we much appreciated having the bookings for Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound made for us. The WiFi was flaky while we were there, but it seems as though this is a temporary issue. The... More

We had an excellent two night stay here, the hosts were great and the location and views were amazing. The bed was also extremely comfortable. Enjoyed the Alpacas and the hosts were great and have a great knowledge of the area! Can't wait to go back!

We had a 2 night stay here before setting off tramping. We arrived late due to late arrival of our baggage and Ray couldn't have been more helpful given that it was after 10pm. The bed was very comfortable and we slept soundly; very peaceful and quiet in spite of being close to a main road. The lounge has a... More

Thanks for your feedback, we will make mention in our cottage notes that the water supply is pure rain water which is pumped from our holding tank by an electric pump therefore does not operate not mains pressure like cities or towns but has the advantage of no chemicals added. More

An excellent hide away, not too far from any of the sounds, even Milford, is just a couple of hours drive through some nice scenery. The property is very clean, well equipped and very quiet, the internet does work, however, you just have to find the right spot. Thank you for our stay

We stayed here two nights, following a cruise on Doubtful Sound. The cottage we stayed at sits next to the owner's house and away from the road. There is ample room for parking. Alpaca can be found in the pens surrounding the house and come when called. There is a view of a garden from the sliding door that serves... More

We stayed at the cottage located next to the owners' house. It had a fantastic view of Kepler Mountains, and everything you could possibly need was right at hand. So nice to have washer and dryer in the cottage and they even included laundry soap! Jessie greeted us with maps of the area, showed us where groceries and good restaurants... More

My husband and I stayed 2 weeks in the cottage behind their house; a welcome retreat after long day-hikes, and visiting the Milford and Doubtful Sounds. The bed was very comfortable, all rooms spacious, and the air-conditioning was a plus, not to be taken for granted, having stayed in several location hot boxes since. Jessie and Ray were charming hosts... More

We stayed here for the 2nd time this year, absolutely loved this place. My boyfriend and I did the Routeburn track in three days, and stayed at KMV for the night before heading to the 4-days hike at Kepler Track. It's wonderful to have a hot shower, and big spa tub after three days without shower. The bed is so... More
