We spend 3 night for Christmas day and had the most wonderful time with Keiko & Kevin, who are so charming hosts. Every day after having visited wonderful places, like the 2 great Sounds, we had a chat with Kevin about our day, upon a glass of wine and home made snacks made by Keiko (we loved the smoked fish Keiko & Kevin fished themselves). Kevin knows a lot of things about New Zealand and we could speak about plenty of subjects. It was great! The weather was fine and sunny, so we had our chats with Kevin in the garden. Keiko has a magnificent garden in Japanese style, and since we love plants, we really enjoyed.
The cottage we had was very cosy and we liked a lot the decoration. We slept very well, and in for morning we had delicious Japanese breakfasts! If you do not mind eating cooked food in the morning, then you definitely have to try Keikos breakfasts! We had every day something else, and it was just great. Breakfasts where so big that we did not really eat for noon, only evening :).
Last but not least, Keiko and Kevin are very helpful about organizing your stay in Te Anau. They booked for us the trip in the Doubtful Sound and also the helicopter trip. We had a great stay at Keiko’s cottages, and we clearly recommend to you all this charming place with charming hosts!
