Great stay with Holly and Karl. Very comfortable and great breakfast. Thanks again!
Holly and Karl were wonderful hosts - along with their two boys and dog too!!
The room was just great [as the photos show]; very clean, with great heating!
The little touches to make the room inviting did not go unnoticed: fresh flowers, candle burning, water carafe with glasses...
The linen was luxurious, and the bed was very comfortable.
In the morning, Holly whipped up a tasty breakfast of yoghurts, fresh fruits, croissants, and toast.
Holly and Karl arranged a helicopter ride for us to the top of Fox Glacier with a local business - and even got us a great discount.
I wish we could have stayed for more than just one night.
I completely recommend.
Many thanks, Zac
Beautiful room, comfy bed & sheets! Loved the candle burning in the room when we arrived. Great views from the property also. Good location for seeing the glaciers. Enjoyed chatting with Holly & the kids in the morning over breakfast. Room looks exactly like photos.
The room is VERY nice. We enjoyed eating breakfast outside, admiring the view. The hosts are friendly and accommodating.
Holly welcomed us with open arms into her family home after our rather late arrival. Cup of tea gratefully received after a long drive that day.
Holly's guest room was immaculately presented with the most awesome shower one could wish for. Slept amazingly well in the bed too. Breakfast healthy and delicious.
Would highly recommend and would stay here again next time we are passing through.
We had a lovely overnight stay at Lancewood and would definately stay again. The room and facilities are immaculate, modern, quiet and above all comfortable. Holly is a great hostess, helpfull, kind and thoughtful. We enjoyed breakfast, Holly provides quality food. We would highly recommend a stay at Lancewood.
We stayed at Holly and Karl's place in Franz Josef in late March. We were warmly welcomed on our arrival, and were grateful for the tips on the surrounding areas and attractions. Local knowledge of the glaciers and walks helped us with our short stay on the West Coast.
What a gem this AirBnB is! Holly and Karl were such attentive hosts and made us feel like part of the family! It was lovely chatting to them in the evenings and we felt really welcome to use their kitchen at any time of day. All of the little details were thought of like providing extra towels and wine glasses in our room. The room is separated off from the main house and is really roomy and luxurious, complete with your own walk-in wardrobe! Their whole home is really spacious and we enjoyed plenty of time in their garden star-gazing under the most perfectly clear skies. If you're visiting Franz Josef, this is the place to stay!
This is a lovely accommodation with a huge room, bath, and closet all private for the guests. Holly was very diligent about serving us, whether giving us help for activities during our stay, or preparing our breakfast. Karl and Holly are both very sociable and went out of their way to serve us.
Great hosts in a beautiful home. Provided plenty of extra "little" touches to make it special. Would have liked to enjoy our lovely room a little longer.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
