From the moment we checked in we felt both welcome and relaxed. There was nothing that was too much trouble from free wi fi to being escorted and shown the room.
Added extras of vouchers were another surprise.
I do not write too many reviews but I found this place worthy of praised and somewhere you should definitely consider if ever you are fortunate enough to travel down to this part of the world

A few minutes drive from the village of Franz Josef make this a nice and quiet location with great views of the mountains from rear decked area . The villa had plenty of space, large lounge / dinner / kitchen with separate bedroom and bedroom , with all that you need for your stay. Ideal base for visiting the glaciers.
Children would like feeding the goats and Alpacas and using the play equipment.

Great hosts. Could not do enough for you. Good advice when your traveling is handy and these guy's were spot on. Lotsa room to move. A little out of town but this is quiet and lovely part of the world. Would stay here again.

Firstly we were greeted by very pleasant staff, car parking is outside your villa, so much space with lounge & TV, all facilities that you need inc a kitchen & plenty of space in the bedrooms. Great location and with so much to do in Franz Josef you need to stay the night here. Hot pools are nearby & Kiwi place & book an adventure on the glacier!
