Sva's cottage is truly a wonderful spot on earth. Jed has put a lot of work and thoughts into this place and we really appreciated the high quality of it. Even though the kitchen was outside, a gas heater and blankets made it very comfortable and everything you need is provided - there are no limits for cooking what ever you like. The view is stunning and the cottage and bed very warm. Also the location was very convenient for us - halfway from Fox Glacier to Abel Tasman NP. Pancake Rocks and some nice walks very close by. Highly recommended for anyone who needs a break from everyday life.

Had a completely unforgettable night at sva's. We both agree probably our favourite place we've ever been. Completely off the grid and private with an amazing deck looking over the deck. Sound of the sea so close was unforgettable. Lots of nice touches in the shack. Highly recommend

Sva's cabin had a great view and a nice "cast away" feeling to it. All the provided equipment (linen, bed, kitchen ware etc) were really good quality and we really appreciated that. We thought that the decoration of the hut itself was quite basic and lacked coziness but that might be completely fine for others. Jed was easy to communicate with and helpful in showing us everything we needed to know. The bathroom has a tree growing in the middle of it which is really cool! But beware of those sandflies :)

If you are looking for an incredible getaway, back to basics, outside cooking and showering with the best view in the world and energy to burn, this is the place for you. The fox river valley is one of the most beautiful places on earth and we will surely be back. The energy of this place is unreal. Thanks Jed, we had the best time.
