The cottages are gorgeous and very comfortable. Jane was a wonderful host – so very welcoming and helpful. Milford Sound is an easy 1.5 drive from Te Anau and is definitely worth a visit. We will definitely be back!!


We can’t thank you both enough for such an amazing stay. You are truly delightful and welcoming hosts and we thank you for all your recommendations and advice. You have made our time in Te Anau an enjoyable one. We loved the cottage and its warm and cosy character – and what an amazing view to wake up to every morning! We wish you all the best with your wonderful B&B, and look forward to a second visit in the future!

Jane made us very welcome when we arrived and the cottage was absolutely beautiful – everything that you could want and extremely cosy. The view was fantastic, fields of sheep and then across to the lake and mountains beyond. We stayed for 2 nights and drove the Milford Highway to the Sound. An amazing experience! Jane was a wonderful host and presented us with a excellent breakfast in her beautiful house. Thank you!

Its been a most unique experience here in your cabin. This is the place where we’ve really found the feeling we are looking for in a journey abroad, with the landscapes, the lake, the greens, the lambs, the cat and our most kind and hospitable hostess and host. Hope we’ll come back to stay in the future, and wish you all the prosperity with the farm and The Croft.

We absolutely loved it from the first moment. With early freezing it was really cosy inside and then the suprise in the morning light: the view over the lake. The view over the lake was the theme of our stay the next days here in Te Anau. Thanks for taking care. The ‘welcome’ chocolate cake was absolutely marvellous!

Jane is the best hostess we have ever encountered. The cottage was wonderful, spacious, clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Jane made sure that everything was alright, and I miss the breakfast conversations we had with her while we were there. The Croft is located near Te Anau and pick up for tours can be arranged (with certain operators). From there we went to Milford and Doubtful Sounds, and the Te Anau glowworm caves. The area is just spectacularly beautiful and I wish we stayed for more than 3 nights there.


I never thought I could live in such a romantic place. The peaceful cottage and the sound of the birds, watching the sun shining into the little place, sheep staring at the lake… Just like a dream. It’s a great experience for people coming all the way from China. Because here is the New Zealand we heard of, which place with kind people and stunning scenery. Thank you very much for giving me this unique memory in this beautiful Autumn! Hope I could come back to visit you and your cute granddaughter again.
