We used this cottage as a kick off point prior to a Doubtful Sound tour, and was such a lovely little place that we could have spent longer there.
The hosts were very welcoming and understanding when our transport to the cottage got delayed considerably.
The cottage was simple but included everything we needed, plus some nice touches like a box of toys for the young ones and a soccer ball and frisby for the older ones. The country setting is very quiet and relaxing.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The cottages are both fully self-contained, serviced and sit right on the edge of Fiordland National Park. We are only a 2 minute drive away from the picturesque township of Manapouri which sits on the shores of beautiful Lake Manapouri. Manapouri is complete with a store, Post Office, two cafes, a restaurant and hotel and is a great place to relax and enjoy one of New Zealand's most spectacular lakes. Your hosts Zeb and Janice will do everything they can to make your stay as enjoyable and fulfilling as possible. ... more less
