This was our first experience with Air B'nB and it was brilliant. We loved staying with Holly and Karl and their family who all made us feel very welcome. Great dinner suggestions and SO glad you suggested the helicopter flight - what an experience! Our room was lovely and the bed was very comfy. And Holly's pancakes are delicious! Highly recommended!
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Holly & Karl's place. The suite was beautiful, very clean and had a lovely view of their garden. We arrived later in the evening, but Holly was extremely welcoming and even made us a pot of tea while we were settling in! This is definitely a great place to stay on the west coast.
It was an absolute pleasure to stay with Holly, Karl and their two boys in Franz Josef. The BnB is adjoining to the main house and is private, quiet and beautifully managed. The bed is super comfortable (those sheets are so luxurious!) and the whole layout of the room is just as nice as the pictures.
As it goes, our trip to Franz Josef was totally last minute, as this listing came up as a home in Lake Tekapo! A quick review of our plans had us say "stuff it" and we arrived in Franz Josef after a long and beautiful drive. On arrival in Franz Josef, we checked in with Holly and Karl who were super welcoming, offering us tea and ideas of things to do. Before we knew it they had even organised a discounted helicopter flight over the glaciers for us!!!
A lovely, friendly and welcoming home.
Would stay again.
Holly and Karl's place was very clean and comfortable. Holly is a great host and very helpful. Their place is close to Franz Josef, only minutes away. We accidentally left our camera and she was very helpful in returning it to us. I would recommend her to others.

Thanks to Holly we had a wonderful time in Franz Josef Glacier (great suggestion for the helicopter company) and moreover spent a very relaxing evening with Holly and Katy having an opportunity to confirm once again that Holly can prepare some wonderful food. So good to feel at home when you are actually so many kilometres away from it.
We loved staying with Holly and family in their lovely house. Our accommodation was spacious and comfortable - especially the bed! Holly could not have done more to make us feel at home - we felt like part of the family.
Great place to stay. Nice quiet area and a wonderful host.
We had everything we needed!
Thank you for our stay :)
Lovely new home, very short drive to Franz Josef Village and Glacier. Separate entrance and unit but need to walk along the main home to get to unit. Cozy, large, comfortable and super clean. Free use of family's kitchen, fridge and dining room. In main home are a small, friendly dog and children -- which we loved. Holly and Karl are very nice folks. Huge bonus: Free, basically unlimited, wifi. A true rarity in NZ.
This is a good place to stay when in Franz Josef. The room was private and confortable. Holly & Karl were friendly and easy going hosts.
Great room just as described with friendly family.
