Really lovely hosts had the heater on for us. Loved the fabulous open fireplace for those days where it was wet outside. Genuine period bach; unpretentious and very relaxing. Has everything you need. We are really glad we stayed in Okarito rather than Franz as when the wet weather meant our flights to the glacier were cancelled we had our own wee house and lots to do outside on the beach (rock hunting, seal spotting...) bird watching tours and bush-walks. The shower pressure is a bit sad but fine for a couple of days stay and the beds were uber comfortable with lovely bed-linen which meant super comfortable sleep. Loved it.
