Clare Brown
I loved the ever changing views in all directions, including a two hour rainbow! This is a well equipped, comfortable and clean house. The stairs have some character, behind a door so a suitable space for our toddler. There are a couple of living spaces which gave flexibility for different age groups. The garden is great for children to explore. Easy walking distance to all Manapouri township has to offer. Janice is very responsive and helpful.
Mandy Crawford
A lovely holiday house and so warm and sunny. Perfect for a weekend away so would go again. Only drawback was narrow staircase downstairs to toilet so as long as you're mobile it's great.
Response from Owner
Thank you for your review. We appreciate your stay.
Chris Cunningham
Loved staying in this authentic family crib/bach. Very comfortable beds, great shower and all amenities with extras thought of. Felt like we were staying in the family holiday home. Only thing to consider is small children and elderly in regard to negotiating the stairs. We loved the family stories both in photo album, photos on walls and the bonus of the book about Frank. If you want a down to earth stay with great views, try here.
