This is a great place to stay at in Te Anau as you can take the short walk into town plus the house is in a quiet street. There is plenty of off-street parking. The house is spacious with a good kitchen plus separate dining room. We enjoyed sitting outside on the elevated decking to watch the sunsets.

Good place as a base to explore Milford Sound. About 2 hours drive to Milford Sound with magnificent view if you start early in the morning. The place is spacious.

The house is located in a corner of the start of the town, but within a walkable (approximately 10-15 minutes) distance to town centre (where the restaurants and the lake is). It gets really dark at night since there aren't many street lamps in Te Anau, so be very careful when driving at night, especially with all the turns; I used high beam most of the time. The house is very old school but it was a lovely place to be. Heating is via an air-conditioning in the living room, and the toilet has its own heater. The main bedroom doesn't come with a heater though the blankets were warm enough. House came with a dvd player as well as books and some dvds, so if you're staying in for the night, you'll be occupied!

Nice little house, old but gives the home away from home feeling which i needed while traveling.

It's very quiet cabin, and the host offer the basic living conditions with self service, it's closely with down centre by driving.

I'm from Ireland but I've lived in Te Anau for 12 years, my partner and I have two little girls and we love this part of the world. A great place to have a family and live in nature.
