About this Holiday House

Mararoa Cottage is clean, cosy, peaceful and private and could be the perfect base for your Fiordland stay. Relax and enjoy the beautiful rural setting just 15 minutes drive from Te Anau and 15 from Manapouri. The well equipped kitchenette has such gorgeous views over the Mararoa River and Takitimu Mountains that washing the dishes will be a pleasure! There are two sheltered areas of outdoor seating, both with lovely views. One of the most common comments in our visitor book is, 'We wish we had booked longer!"

Special Amenities

Enjoy our lovely UV treated rainwater. The cottage has a basin, detergent and a drying rack for hand washing items, and there is a good laundromat in town. I will happily do washing for guests except when water supplies are low (when we too use the laundromat). Great sunsets! The cottage is small but has a lofty ceiling so feels spacious. Simply lovely rural views. Local walks. Plant and bird ID books. Good cellphone coverage and adequate WIFI.

Emma Barber
A perfect place for two to spend a few quiet days in the country. Catherine is a wonderful hostess, checking briefly each day to see if we needed anything, to offer advice or just a chat. Wonderfully situated for day tramping on Keplar Track or for trip to Doubtful Sound. We would recommend both. Also enjoyed the wildlife sanctuary in Te Anau, only 20 min away. Cottage is warm, well equipped and very comfortable. Loved the view from Kitchen as well as the bird life and we made full use of the garden chairs and the bar-b-que.
Response from Owner
Thank you Emma for taking the time to leave such a detailed and helpful review, it is much appreciated. So glad you enjoyed your stay and visiting Te Anau's dear wee bird sanctuary.
Murray and Suzy
Mararoa Cottage proved ideal for what we wanted - 10-15 minutes drive to Manapouri and Te Anau, and 1 hour to the Mavora Lakes (gravel road). On arrival, everything was presented to a high standard. The hosts, Catherine and Paul, are very hospitable, friendly, want to please and ensure the stay is truly enjoyable. The cottage is private and peaceful, in a rural setting with a wonderful outlook - sunrise can be pretty special. Although it may appear small, the layout works well. A small room off the bedroom/bathroom provides an ideal place to tuck baggage and travel items away. The area has a lot to offer and after 10 days, still more to explore, perhaps on another occasion. Thank you.
Response from Owner
Thank you Marray and Suzie for your thoughtful and detailed review, it is much appreciated. It was a pleasure to host you and I certainly hope our paths will cross again.
Nicola Scott
A great little cottage in a peaceful, private, rural location. It's close to both Manapouri and Te Anau, so it's a perfect spot to stay and visit both areas. Very clean, comfortable and so well-equipped, couldn't have asked for anything more. Catherine is a wonderful host, and we will definitely be recommending the cottage to friends and family. Thank you!
