About the neighbourhood
Kepler Mountain View Cottage is located on our Alpaca Farm property on the outskirts of Lake Manapouri village. Parking is right by the cottage and Lake Manapouri village is a 10 minute walk or a 1-2 minute drive away. Enjoy being close to the village but have space around in a rural setting with breathtaking views into Fiordland National parks mountains. Enjoy the night skys without the light pollution of a built up area. Your hosts live on site but the cottage has good seperation with gardens to ensure your privacy.
