“"Great place to explore local lakes amd Milford Sound"”
Reviewed 29 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

Sacha and Gareth have created a perfect place to make home base while exploring local lakes and Milford Sound. Their hospitality was warm without being intrusive, and their attention to detail was apparent everywhere.
The cottage was immaculate and comfortably furnished, with more than ample provisions for our two breakfasts.
We recommend without reservation.

“Te Anua”
Reviewed 20 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

If you're in the area on a holiday or visiting Milford Sound this place is the perfect place to rest and relax. My girlfriend and I had been driving through the Southland and we visited the amazing Milford Sound but accommodation in the area is scarce. We found Sou'West Cottage to be more than than we anticipated. Perfect for a couple with a large comfortable bed and all the comforts of home. The hosts have spared no expense and the attention to interior design detail is astonishing - from cupboard door softeners to stop slamming draws and a bespoke quilt cover in keeping with the theme the fit out excels. If we are in the area anytime soon, this is the first place we will stay.

“Warm, cosy, sunny cottage close to all Fiordland has to offer”
Reviewed 21 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Our hosts Sacha and Gareth and their two kids welcomed us with open arms. The cottage was warm and sunny. Great heating. Comfy bed. Good shower. Great little kitchenette. Comfortable leather lounges. Lovely sunny bay window facing north on a lovely little hobby farm a stones throw from the Te Anau township. We even got a tour of the little farm and met all the animals. Gareth prepared a superb platter of freshly caught Milford Sound crayfish as a complimentary "hello" gift. Each evening on our return to the cottage after a day of sightseeing we were met with a warm and inviting cottage to relax in. All the luxuries of home with extras. Thanks for your hospitality and knowledge of the area. We will be back for sure.

“Perfect stay in Te Anau”
Reviewed 5 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Writing a first review just to recommend the Sou'West Cottage, which is independently run by Sacha and Gareth but would best most other accommodations out there in terms of how thoughtful and welcoming they are for their guests. The unit is spacious and private separated from their home, with all the bathroom and kitchen amenities you would expect from a serviced apartment, and on top of that - complimentary beers and breakfast was a nice surprise after a long drive and before the next day's activity. Super comfortable bed and living room. Sacha and Gareth and family were very welcoming and had a lot of knowledge about sights and activities in the area. Just a great experience overall.
