Property Description
This Cottage is one of the original 'Cribs' of Te Anau and was built by my Grandfather back in 1942.

We liked everything about this place. Secluded and private but close to everything. Very well appointed with an amazing bathroom, comfortable bed and across the street from the lake. Wonderful walks at your doorstep.

Great accommodation, central to everything. Had everything we needed. My husband loved the deep bath which was a welcome change as all the places we had stayed on our travels only had a shower. Cooking facilities available, would have been nice have use of a BBQ. Maybe something to consider for the future.

Management response:

Thanks for staying at our cottage. We hope you loved your Fiordland Experience and welcome you back anytime! Regards Peter and Yanli👍

We loved this centrally-located cottage - close to the beautiful lake and many nice restaurants and shops. The cottage had everything we needed including a full-kitchen, bathroom and laundry, and outdoor yard. We especially liked the large bathtub. Thank you...it was a wonderful stay.
