Nicola Scott
This is a great kiwi holiday home, with a very interesting family history (photos & stories at house). We loved that personal touch, and the house is beautifully clean with all linen provided making for such an easy stay for the four of us. Janice was extremely helpful, great communication and friendly. The location is perfect, so close to everything and with a lovely river view. We will stay here again as there is so much more to do in the Manapouri area.
