The Space

Welcome Home Cottage is a fully self contained cute character bach, located in Manapouri, on the edge of Fiordland National Park.

The cottage features superb mountain views, BBQ and outdoor area. There is also a huge backyard along with a working coal range, open fire, two mountain bikes for your use, plenty of books, games and DVDs to keep everyone entertained.

Lake Manapouri is a 5 minutes walk away, and with Te Anau being a 15 minute drive, it makes the Welcome Home Cottage an ideal place to base yourself for your adventures in Fiordland, and trip to Milford / Doubtful Sound.

There are three bedrooms (one king size, one queen size and one small room with single bunk beds). The main bedroom and smaller bunk bed room are within the main house, and the king size room has exterior access only - ie: it is a detached (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). We also have a small cot mattress, portacot and high chair available if required. All linen and towels are included.

There is plenty of off-street parking available and there is even room for the boat too.

Enjoy a classic kiwi Fiordland experience, at the Welcome Home Cottage!

Manapouri, New Zealand · Member since March 2011

We love the outdoors, travelling and reading books by the fire.

Both of us work for the Department of Conservation in New Zealand, and love living on the edge of Fiordland National Park.

Airbnb has worked well for us - both renting our place in New Zealnd, and when we travel overseas.
