This place was beyond our expectations. Private hottubs outside was a bonus! We planned to go to the hotpool across from our place, but this hotubs satisfied us enough. It was so clean and spacious. Highly recommended.

2/5 Poor

Not what I expected
This house is very close to camper and and in dense shrubs so feels dark, cold and noisy at times. No heat except portable units. Check in was cumbersome. Communication was limited to one email when booked 6 months prior that contained the necessary instructions on where to drive to to get the key and check in; would have been helpful to send reminder 1 week prior. We booked for 2 nights but called at 8 am asking to check out early after 1 night. No refund for second night. The town of Franz Joseph had little to do and due to weather, our glazier flight was cancelled. We moved to Hokitika 1 hour away which was wonderful.

Spacious, secluded paradise!
Comfortable 3 bedroom apartment with good sized kitchen, dining area and comfortable loving area. Really enjoyed the living area fireplace and electric blankets in bedrooms. Beautiful outdoor patio and outdoor tubs for a warm soak - sadly with all the rain we were unable to enjoy those areas. A bit of an odd placement of the toilet at the entry, but the bathroom (with tub, shower and sink) was spacious with good finishes. Loved having our own space with free parking- covered parking for one vehicle, but the area could fit 2-3 cars easily.
