Excellent location, comfortable bed, quiet, very well supplied kitchen with all the pots, dishes and gear to cook including an apron and a barbeque. Also loved the small group Milford Sound tour we did arranged by Birchwood.

Nice but everything seems like it's been there for
Everything was fine it's a basic cabin with everything including air it just seemed expensive for what you get. All that being said it was fine.
Jerry, ca1 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Comfortable and private cottage
Stayed there 4 nights. The one bedroom cottage was comfortable, clean and well equipped, including AC and a BBQ on the porch. Surrounded by lush vegetation and within 5 minutes walking distance to the town center. Quiet despite being located next to the main road. Daily cleaning service included. Good location, close to the Sounda and the hikes in the Fiordland National Park.
