This clean, modern cottage is really excellent value. It is relatively new, rooms are comfortable, with heater, tv, and well-equipped kitchen and washing area. But, what really takes the cake here, is the million-dollar mountain view from the porch, on which we enjoyed a perfect sunset while we were there. There is also a big, and I mean BIG, field out the backyard, which is perfect for a game or two of football with the kids.
This place is actually in Manapouri, a few minutes drive from Te Anau. Manapouri is a lot more tranquil compared to the tourist hordes at Te Anau, and equally convenient to drive to Milford Sound, which we did. There're restaurants and stores a short drive from the cottage.
We enjoyed our stay at the cottage very much. Wished we stayed longer!
