  • The place was perfect

    The place was perfect. Cozy and has a nice little sunroom where you can read and have a view of the river.

    Perfectly nice place to stay, a little old school but thats exactly what we wanted. Washer and dryer were great. Literally a 5 min walk to the ferry terminal. Be aware there is no WIFI.

  • This is beautiful vacation home

    This is beautiful vacation home. It was prefect for us! We loved be in the quiet town of Manapouri. The river view was beautiful. The glass porch was lovely place to have morning coffee and watch the sun come up! It was a perfect location! Janice was very understanding about our need for a late departure caused by the weather turning bad and stranding us on Steward Island. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

    Location of property was excellent - especially if you're planning on catching the Real Journey cruise to Doubful Sound - you literally walk out of the front door and down the jetty. The property itself was a bit basic - no broadband or dishwasher and just 1 bathroom. However the lounge area was comfy and there was a nice balcony which got a lot of sun. Fine for a family of 4, but was a stretch for group of 7

    Owner/manager responds:

    Our listing description and photos are accurate. Broadband and dishwasher are not advertised so shouldn't be expected. I'm glad you enjoyed the lounge and balcony though.
