“A wonderful Stay”
Reviewed 5 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We stayed here before and after our Doubtful Sound overnight cruise (which was superb). The cottage is simple but very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Jessie and Ray are the perfect hosts and it was a real pleasure to help feed the alpacas in the evening. They and Charlotte the cat are real characters. The farm setting with the hills around is very pleasant and we had some great sunrises and sunsets.

“Perfect base for Routeburn track”
Reviewed 12 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

An incredible location with stunning surrounding views of the mountains. We were made to feel very welcome by Jessie and Ray and even had a personal introduction to the very friendly alpaca's. Max and Sue (baby alpaca's) allowed us to stroke them and we enjoyed hearing all about how they are cared for.
The accommodation was a self contained unit with a lovely garden area and bbq spot. The kitchenette and washing facilities were very useful. The bathroom was smart with a really nice shower. The bed is remembered for being one of the most comfortable we slept on in NZ!
Both Jessie and Ray talked us through our drive to the start of the Routeburn track and what the weather was looking like.
A perfect, relaxing stay before an epic walk. Highly recommended.

Excellent, well equipped accommodation with mountain views. Very friendly hosts who were happy to help us get to know the local area. Meeting Max and the other alpacas was an added bonus!!

“Amazing Place!!!”
Reviewed 30 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This was an amazing place - the house itself was very nice and very well equipped - kitchen with everything you can think off, laundry room, bedroom - excellent. And the location - unbelievable. Close to an amazing lake (10 minute walk), quiet, really beautiful.

Thanks for your great feedback. Lake Manapouri is New Zealand most scenic and beautiful lake valued by all NZERS but still a quiet secret.

Very immaculate place with attention to detail. Great hosts-very accommodating and helpful.
Manapouri place is beautiful with excellent lake to walking distance to this place.

I would think this place is the best choice to go to Milford.
