Decked out with all new appliances, kitchenware, towels and electronics, just bring your self! All conveniances are a short stroll away, pub, restaurants, milk , bread and fuel.

Kids can play games,puzzles,and enjoy the large fenced yard or simply open the gates. You now back onto your own river reserve frontage, where the moss infused lawn makes a wonderful place to sit, relax, share a drink on sunset and just admire the ever changing hues of the fiords.

Street and rear lane (drive thru block) access allows ample vehicle and boat storage (no carport or undercover parking sorry)

With world class fishing, hunting, hiking and sight seeing at your very fingertips, 'Alirras View" lake Manapouri really is a place for relaxation or for that real New Zealand last great adventure!


A 'bach" is by definition a small, modest shack or holiday home. Alirras View is, "warm and cosy" so it has been furnished accordingly.

Also sandflys and bugs are prevalent this time of year around New Zealand, so to ensure a comfortable stay remember to keep windows and doors closed when out and about, turn off lights and use repellent provided if needed.

  • The location is great, particularly if you are going to Doubtless Sound...

    The location is great, particularly if you are going to Doubtless Sound on the first high speed catamaran, in this peaceful village. The bungalow is a delightful quirky property which appealed greatly to us from childhood holidays. It is very well equipped ( cooker is aged but has a warmer draw which no modern ones do ) and the beds very comfortable. A street light intrudes a bit. The gas BBQ worked well. It rained one night so we ate on our laps inside instead of the patio table. Fond memories!

  • We had a great stay in Manapouri & had everything we needed

    We had a great stay in Manapouri & had everything we needed. Cottage is rather small, old-style kiwi bach, but nicely furnished / decorated, was quiet, & very adequate for our needs. Thank you!
