Welcome Home Cottage - Manapouri NZ

House - Entire home/apt · Home St, Manapouri, Southland 9679, New Zealand

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, mountain bike and kayak 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, one queen and one small one with bunk beds). The main bedroom is accessed off the entranceway / hallway, and the other two rooms have exterior access only - ie: go out the front door, across the porch and into the rooms (the queen is a detached sleepout). We also have a cot mattress and portacot 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!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Loved this charming little cottage! Communication with Christine was very easy and comprehensive. The location is wonderful.. it makes for a perfect stopping point after a day at Milford Sound, and is just a few minutes walking from the beautiful Lake Manapouri and hiking tracks in Fiordlands National Park. It can be a little chilly at first, but there are plenty of blankets and it's very cozy once you get the fire going. We enjoyed using the kitchen to make a home cooked meal and played cards by the fire. Would definitely recommend a visit!

  • After a long drive back from Milford Sound we spend a wonderful night in the place. We had everything what we needed. The surrondings with the lake and the mountains are amazing.

  • We recently had a great night at the Welcome Home cottage. It's a really unique rustic property, with a fantastic open fire. Highly recommended if you want a spot with easy access to Lake Manapouri and the ferries to Doubtful Sound. Thanks Christine!

  • Very rustic and close to the lake.

  • This cottage has so much character and charm. The perfect place to stay after our trip from doubtful sound- almost equally as magical, and literally a 2 minute drive from the harbor. If you want an authentic experience, this is the way to go. Not to mention that Christine was a gem of a host.

  • Our stay in the cottage was just terrific. It was everything that you would hope from a cottage stay, lots of character and quirkiness. It was very clean and comfortable. Unfortunately we had only one night but it would have been great to settle in for a few days.

  • Nice, cute and lovely cottage. Very comfy with the chimney after doing Milford sound. :-)
