is a cozy cottage with great views and lambs for neighbors. We stayed here on our fourth day in NZ and it was perfect timing to do so. We had lots of questions about the land, raising sheep, normal everyday things. Jane was a delight to talk to and answered all our questions. Everything that has been said about the... More

We stayed 3 unforgettable days there. The cottage is just wonderful, warm and cozy, clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Surrounded by a most idyllic landscape, sheeps and lambs we could enjoy amazing sunsets every evening while having dinner on the terrace. Ross and Jane were truly delightful and welcoming hosts. The breakfast was beautiful, Jane surprised us with another... More

We stayed at the Croft in the Blue Cabin. The Cabin was very comfortable with attention to a lot of detail to make our stay enjoyable. The beds were comfortable, kitchenette available, shower room excellent and the views across the valley and lake to the mountains wonderful. Breakfast in the house was well provided and the attention to the detail... More

We deliberately chose Te Anau over Queenstown for our visit to Milford Sound. It was a great decision as was the one we made to stay at the Croft. From the moment we arrived Jane and Ross made us so welcome and at home. We stayed in the blue cabin and the views are awesome. The cabin is beautifully decorated,... More

Had the best time at The Croft! We stayed in the blue cabin. Wich is lovely, romantic and has a beautifull view. Jane is very kind, we really liked talking with her during the tasty breakfast. We hope we can come back on time and just relax at the porch looking at the mountains and water.

This was just the perfect little cabin to spend a couple of nights in, the pictures do not do it justice - the views are more beautiful and the cabin is surprisingly spacious. It was ideally located for us as we went from Queenstown to Milford Sound and staying here meant that there wasn't too much travel either day and... More

If you want to be out of town with peace and quiet, a fantastic view and space is not an issue, then this is the place for you. The hosts are great. The only downsides are distance from town, lack of space and no screen for bathroom window.

We could not have had a more helpful host; it was obvious that Jane wants to make sure her guests are comfortable and helped with all they need. The cottage has a sitting area inside and out with tranquil views of fields and the lake and has a mini kitchen too. A restful place to return to at the end... More

Located a short few minutes drive from Te Anau town centre, The Croft is a classic and peaceful country cottage with the most amazing views! Jane is lovely and so welcoming, we really enjoyed chatting with her and Ross over breakfast. We stayed 2 nights in the blue cottage, which was very cosy, clean and comfortable. In the evenings, we... More
