About this listing
The cottage is a cute Manapouri house that sleeps 5 people in 3 bedrooms. Plenty of character and a great location - just a few minutes walk to the departure point for Doubtful Sound trips.
This house offers a cozy stay in a mountain cottage.
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 (website 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!

The cottage is a lovely and quiet place to relax with friends. Christine is a friendly, warm and kind host, even we had no chance to meet each other. She prepared everything well and left the heater switch on for us. That's so sweet! The surrounding is exactly the same as described. The room is cosy, tidy and quiet. We had a wonderful night in this lovely place. Highly recommend!!!
The cottage was amazing! It was a bit old, but we immediately fell in love with it. After we got the heaters and fire going (there's plenty of firewood!) it was very cozy and warm. There was plenty of room to hang out, sleep, and cook. We also really enjoyed the backyard and the private location. Not too far from Te Anau and was the perfect stop for hanging out in Milford Sound. Highly recommended!!
I love, love, loved this place the moment I walked in! Exactly as I imagined! Quant, cosy and cute. I would live there forever if I could.
Christine was great and provided a porta-cot and high chair for my friend's baby.
The free wifi, open fire and family of heaters were great plus as a bonus they have green cleaning products and Pearl Jam cds!
It was happy to live in this cottage with a quiet environment. My family and I have enjoyed our journey and please to stay here for two nights.
The cottage was perfect for our one night stopover on the way to Milford Sound. It was easy to find, instructions were clear and once we had the radiators and fire going it was cosy and warm. The kitchen was well equipped and there is a good selection of books, maps, DVDs etc. we only wish we could have stayed longer.
We had a wonderful time at the cottage. It was great to have a kitchen for cooking and be able to use the fireplace to warm up. This is a great place to stay for anyone traveling through the South Island!
