My sister and I have wanted to tour New Zealand for 43 years, and we finally did it in 2016. After spending many nights in B & B's over the years, we were delighted to see that Te Anau, one of our destinations, had a B & B. The Avon House B & B was such a treat. Not only...

I stayed there for two nights with a friend. Aloma and John are very helpful and they've had great tips for our trip, they are very knowledgeable about the region. The breakfast is wonderful. Thank you very much for booking us the trip to the Glowworm Caves.

We had a great time at Aloma and John's place. The bedroom was impeccable and the breakfast really nice. But what makes this stay really special is the way Aloma and John took the time to share some of their insights, stories and experiences of fiordland with us. They helped us organising our trip to Milford Sound and they anticipated...

I feel so fortunate to have found a vacancy at Avon House during my time in Fiordland. It is so fitting in this amazing and breathtaking part of the country to have Aloma and John as your hosts. They are most charming and welcoming, their B&B is lovely, and their knowledge of the territory is indispensable. I arrived in the...

On our way to a Fjordland adventure, we stayed in Te Anau at the Avon House. Te Anau is a lovely small town and there is no better way to enjoy it than at a B & B, where you can feel like a local: easily walk to dinner and other attractions. The owners John and Aloma are such gracious...

An outstanding place to stay in. It's more like staying at a friend's place than at your average b&b. Although most friends probably do not keep their homes as tidy as the Avon House. :-) The famous Te Anau hospitality really holds true here and the rooms are very nice. Plus we got a lot of useful advice for our...
