“Perfect!”
Reviewed 7 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We have stayed in many vacation rentals all over the world, and this was one of the very nicest. Booking was easy, and the owners are super-nice and very helpful. The house itself is not only quiet and extremely comfortable, but beautifully arranged and furnished. Everything is very attractively done and Ray and Jessie have thought of so many great extras to make the stay special. The location is lovely! One tip--the little local store in Manapouri doesn't have much in the way of food, so plan to stock up at the large supermarket in Te Anau. We hope to back to stay again!
