You are welcome to share my home in Franz Josef Glacier. The bedroom has a modern en suite plus separate lounge. Great kitchen. Rodney the poodle and Sumi the cat love meeting new people. We love the Lake views.5 minute drive to the village.
My home is modern built for the sun with views over pastures to Lake Mapourika. There is a single bed with a pull out if you have children or 4 people are travelling
5 minutes drive away is the Franz Josef village.There are numerous choices for dining.Great cafes. The glacier walks and flights can be booked easily.
Interaction with Guests
If you need quiet and privacy this is the place for you however if you want to chat I love a good chinwag.I work in the village Monday to Friday from 9 till 6. Access can easily be arranged during those hours. Please Call into the Glacier Shop in the main street. I can direct you from there.
This neighborhood is very quiet. Close enough to the village yet when you get home its so peaceful
Off street parking available. Most of the cafes and bars offer transport home if you happen to go over the drinking limit.
Other Things to Note
I have a standard poodle named Rodney. He is very social and friendly. We have just added a kitten to our family. Very friendly she is too
Lovely, quiet, tasteful place, big room & bathroom and even a guest lounge! Breakfast was very good and Joan a very lovely guest. We would recommend 100%!
Great location for experiencing the Glaciers. The view from the window at breakfast is amazing. The rooms and bathroom were super clean and comfortable. Joan was also a great host and made us feel very comfortable in her house.
Modern house in a quiet location, not far from Franz Josef. The room is tastefully furnished and has a private bathroom. We both slept well and enjoyed breakfast with a view before departing. Joan was friendly and welcoming and a useful source of advice on things to do in the area
Joan was a very gracious host and made us feel very welcomed in her well appointed home! The layout for guests included a separate lounging room complete with TV and a very comfortable bedroom with large ensuite bathroom! The house is located a few kilometers outside of Franz Josef with easy access to the glaciers. Although our scheduled helihike on the glacier was cancelled due to cloud cover, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with her!
Really enjoyed our stay at Frans Joseph. Joan is a very friendly person and an excellent host. The facilities were very good but the final touches that Joan provides will make your stay a very pleasant experience.
The house is described as quiet and peaceful, which it certainly is, as well as being tastefully decorated, modern and spacious. It is only 4.5 km from Franz Josef township in a rural setting. Joan is a casual, friendly and informative host, and we would recommend her to anyone visiting the area.
