Wow, this is a rare gem where everything just falls into place!
The hosts, Joan and Ross, are so very kind and fun, we had a lovely home cooked dinner (and organic with home grown vegetables) with them during which we felt completely at home and we also fekt that we had made 2 new friends. And the wines they served us during drinks before and during dinner were superb.
Breakfast is also delicious with very good local products.
The whole house is lovely and our corner view room with amazing views over the garden, the mountains and lake Te Anau was delightful, all very new, modern but still cosy. An amazing bed an great bathroom and complementary wine.
So just staying in this lovely B&B is wonderful, but no worries, there is plenty to do around Te Anau in the Fiordland National Park. Also here, the service of Joan and Ross was amazing. We had written them asking about the possibilities. Well, no worries, Joan arranged it all for us, and more. We had a helicopter flight over part of the Fiordland including Doubtful Sound, which was amazing. And the pick up was in The garden of the Prospect Lodge, talking about service!
Furthermore, Joan had arranged for a lovely trip to Milford Sound, everything arranged to perfection yet again.
In short, I think this was absolutely a must, because of the lovely location of the house, the way it is decorated, the food, the things you can do around Te Anau and most of all are lovely hosts who made it so very special! Besides, we think there is no location on the area compared to this.
