What great people. Te Anau might be suffering from Covid19 but it has not stopped the amazing hospitality. We were given great advice on where to eat, which tours and how to get the best out of our stay. The 1 bedroom apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable and the view was great. What was memorable though was the friendly and helpful owners.

We had a good stay. Check in was smooth and friendly. The room was modern and clean. Location is right across street from lake, so all rooms have lake views. Also, very short walk into town (4-5 minutes) where all the restaurants, food markets, etc are.

Room was immaculate! Loved our stay there. Only negative was we were on first floor and had little privacy as people walked to/from their rooms. Upper floor would definitely be nicer. Front desk staff very friendly. Easy walk to town, restaurants, water taxi. Highly recommend.
