We booked a studio unit at this gem in the heart of Fiordland National Park. The room was large, wonderfully furnished, and spotlessly clean – perfect for people who love being out among nature, but still wanting to enjoy their creature comforts. The large, screened windows and sliding door allow you to take in the most of the spectacular surroundings...

We stayed a few nights here recently. The location is wonderful, near mirror lakes and along the road leading to Milford Sound. Upon arrival, PC greeted us and checked us in, showing us places on the map to visit and spots around the grounds to explore. Be sure to check out their waterfall. You can't get down to it but...

We didn't actually stay at Knobs Flat but happened to get our car stuck in a muddy ditch about 20km away. A very nice couple picked us up on the highway and dropped us at Knobs Flat where we met PC, the owner, who couldn't have been more helpful. He let us use his phone to make multiple calls, and...

Great spot to stay! Small community areas, but tidy and clean... We've spent two days camping, and was a little bit crowded, but still a very nice stay in the middle of fiordland (there are nearby tracks right on the property for walking).

This property is in Fiordland National Park and is surrounded by spectacular scenery. Although it appears to be quite modest, it has a lot of interesting touches, like the stylized folk sculptures outside most buildings and the nice linens. We stayed in one of the free standing cabins and had the most beautiful view---towering snow covered mountains and a waterfall....

We stayed in a private cabin and loved it. It was quaint, comfortable, peaceful and had all the tools that we needed for cooking our own meals. It was also very clean and well kept. The view was spectacular and there are nearby tracks right on the property for walking (one to a very impressive waterfall). The host is also...

Arrived at Knobs Flat after our trip from Milford Sound - stunning scenery, were met by PC Taylor, got back to our accom in Auckland and found out by chance that the 'P' stands for Phil, but tha'ts another story. Only had time to stay for one night, but what an amazing experience, the scenery, location, remoteness. The late evening...

I just spent 4 weeks driving around the south half of the south island. This was by far and away the best place that I stayed. The accommodations are beautiful, the kitchen very well kept, beds comfortable, everything you could want except internet and cell service (but do you really want those?). The owner is incredibly helpful. He was away...

Great place to stay, close to Milford sound and to many of the great walking tracks. Host was most accommodating of all our needs. Rooms are well equipped and warm. Great views of the Fiordland mountains. Highly recommend. Thanks PC

Stunning location, super friendly and informative owners with fantastic local nature knowledge. Gorgeous accommodation unit complete with porch with a view. Well equipped kitchen and the best shower in NZ! Can't wait to go back. I've travelled all over the world but this is my favourite place by far and just a short journey to the breathtaking Milford Sound :)
