We loved this little cottage. It was quiet, private, and within walking distance of the little downtown area of Te Anau. Ray was extremely helpful with booking tours and transportation. Reliable Wifi, hot showers, kitchen, clean and well kept.

We had 3 nights here and would have happily stayed longer. The owners gave us a very warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was very clean and of good quality. Very comfortable bed and good shower. Our cottage had lovely views. Short drive from Town. Would recommend a stay here.

Hosts,Leonie & Ray, were very accommodating, hospitable & friendly. Birchwood Cottages are within easy walking distance of Te Anau town centre. We found the cottages tidy, well equipped & beds very comfortable. Ray made himself available to drive us to our meeting point for the Hollyford Track.. We will contact for a booking on our next visit to the area.

Lovely basic/family cottages where you can feel right at home. Warm cozy loungue with a oven style fire place. Has all that you need for a self contained stay and well fitted out kitchen. Beds are comfy with warm duvets/doonas and a free selection of DVDs to keep you entertained in the evening in the cozy lounge.

Te Anau is possibly one of the most beautiful places that we have seen and our stay at Birchwood Cottage elevated our experience to a new level. We visited in the month of Sep and booked for 2 nights stay when Ray (owner) insisted that the place is too good for just one night visit; Ray, I still thank you...
