Fantastic Escape ★★★★★

We had a lovely 2 night stay at this perfect relaxing cabin. Close enough to Te Anau (5 min drive) for restaurants and activities but out of the hustle and bustle so you can really appreciate the natural wonder of this gorgeous part of the world. Pam ensured we had everything we needed (including more food than you could ever eat in 2 days!). Would highly recommend staying here.

Beautiful lodge that made you feel at home ★★★★★

My partner and I stayed here and absolutely loved it. The lodge can sleep up to 6 people and it would be perfect for a family or even 2 couples. Especially loved the fire, heated up the place nicely. We cooked dinner one night and Pam has thought of everything that is needed, from cling wrap to pepper shakers. A must for those wanting a more intimate experience just a few minutes from town. Gorgeous and thoughtful hosts too!

Magical! ★★★★★

The Hollows is superb. Every aspect of the property was faultless. The location was amazing and 3 nights was simply not enough. Pam’s special touches made us feel special.

A Perfect Place to Stay ★★★★★

We were travelling with our 3 boys on the way to Milford Sound. This was the perfect pit stop. It’s very close to town but far enough to be secluded. The log cabin had all the touches you would require. It is very obvious that Pam and Mark have put in a lot of thought for all the small things. The breakfast provisions were vast and very plentiful. We were meant to go out for dinner but decide to cook ourselves as it was so cosy. The kitchen is well stock. Laundry facilities and internet. I would strongly recommend this place.

Highly recommended ★★★★★

Stayed 2 nights in Feb 14. Wonderful log cabin – modern, clean with lovely gardens including pet cows and friendly dog. Hosts are very pleasant and helpful but respect your privacy. The fridge and larder are stocked with lovely food and wine. Location is great – near the river if you like fishing and the helicopter we had arranged to fly us over doubtful and dusky sounds landed in the garden to pick us up which was very cool!
