A great house to stay in, especially if you want a very comfortable, well appointed and modern base from which to explore Manapouri, Milford and Doubtful Sounds as we did. The house is modern and well appointed, and walking distance to both bars and cafe. We stayed in winter, and although Manapouri was cold, it is still a great place to explore. The wood burner gave great heat and ambience for our winter stay. Great internet also.

Our stay was very comfortable since the house is spacious and very well-equipped. The check-in/check-out process was one of the easiest ones we've ever had. We appreciated the easy walk to the Doubtful Sound cruise departure point and were happy to be in a quiet Manapouri neighborhood. We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed seeing the Bird Sanctuary near Te Anau. We also had some nice walks on part of the Kepler Track nearby, especially the ones that begin at the conveniently located Rainbow Reach. Highly recommended!

Highly recommend Fiordland Holiday Houses. Right near the beautiful lake and embarkation point for Doubtful Sound cruise, which I recommend as well. Close to Te Anu.

Great house in great location for our early morning morning Doubtful Sound kayak trip. Also close enough for a day trip to Milford Sound (about a 2 hour drive). Shopped for groceries in nearby Te Anau. Definitely recommend and would return again.

Hi - I'm Sallie. Over 14 years I have established my role as Holiday House Manager of local Southlander's homes in Te Anau and Manapouri. I have worked in Fiordland tourism for nearly 20 years. Back when Real Journeys was Fiordland Travel, I hosted on the 99 year old vessel Tawera taking freedom walkers and stores across Lake Te Anau to the beginning of the Milford Track ( I alternated between boat hosting, barmaiding, shedhanding for a local sheep shearing contractor and relief teaching - the energy of the young). I have guided in the Glowworm Caves and various other vessel hosting on Lake Manapouri and Lake Te Anau. I am most familiar with Doubtful Sound and Milford Sound - spending many evenings at both Sounds- and am more than happy to recommend cruises and activities that will fit best with your group's needs. The Holiday Houses I manage are tended to a high standard with all linen hot washed and ironed at the home. All homes are frequented by the owners and each have their unique character, creating a real home feel that is happily shared so you may truly relax and make Te Anau or Manapouri a real home base for the duration of your Fiordland venture.
Please be aware before booking a home that home owners require of me to collect credit card information to be held as security for the home. No money is taken from your credit card for accommodation or as a deposit. Credit card details are held as security against any damage to home owner's houses or contents. I will call to collect these from you on arrival. Great opportunity to meet and say hello.
