Nestled in the heart of Fox Glacier, Ropatinis presents a charming property that not only promises a serene lifestyle but also offers a compelling business opportunity. This picturesque freehold going concern is an ideal prospect for a young family or a couple eager to venture into the tourism industry.

Featuring three studios with a fourth currently under renovation, each equipped with an ensuite bathroom, this property provides a unique investment.

Extensive gardens and a greenhouse for vegetable cultivation add to the property’s allure. Currently hosting grazing sheep and chickens (negotiable), the property encompasses a 2-car garage with 3-phase electricity (not activated), serving maintenance and storage needs. The buildings are strategically set back from the street, ensuring enhanced privacy.

With a substantial land area of 1.3390 hectares, ample room for expansion exists, including the potential addition of more cottages. Developers can explore subdivision opportunities, with the potential for creating three separate sections.

Fox Glacier, with an approximate population of 250, offers a tranquil and close-knit community, creating an ideal setting for those seeking a change of pace and a strong sense of community.

This enticing offering is a Freehold Going Concern, and the motivated vendors are prepared to sell after 20+ years, ready to embrace the next chapter of their lives.

Trish and Collin are the perfect hosts. Room were super clean and 5 star hotel toilet with good water pressure and heater. Even the beds had heater if you wanted a warmer bed. Breakfast was also loving prepared by trish from the homegrown berries to her yummy muffins and bread.
Enjoyed our two nights stay here as a big group of 7. And of course with the lovely warm welcome from teddy who is an absolute joy to have.
To add on we had lovely conversations sharing and understanding New Zealand more from them as well. 10/10 stay ✨💕


While planning our trip and subsequently looking for a nice accommodation on the west coast of the South Island, we came across this beautiful accommodation by chance. Trish and Collin are simply the best hosts we met during our New Zealand tour. The accommodation was clean and in a very quiet location. It is also an unbeatable starting point for the numerous activities in the Fox Glacier area. From our hosts Trish & Collin we received well-founded and very helpful tips for our activities, enjoyed an extraordinarily delicious breakfast with always freshly prepared fruit, drinks, very good coffee, even delicious farm-eggs prepared on request/any style. As if that wasn’t enough to keep us happy, we enjoyed probably the best panoramic view of the nearby mountains from the breakfast table. We were also allowed to admire Teddy’s (dog) art pieces. All in all, it was an unforgettably beautiful stay (unfortunately too short with only 2 nights). Therefore, we can unreservedly recommend this accommodation and its hosts! Many thanks again to Trish & Collin.
