Cosy little place with beautiful gardens. The hosts were generous and helpful. Thankfully the mist was down while we were here so there wasn't much in the way of helicopter noise (they're based right next door to one of the helipads).

It's a lovely house with a spectacular view towards the mountain range. And this view you'll enjoy during the very good cooked breakfast. The room was spotless clean, with a very comfortable bed and a view towards the garden. The bathroom was big enough and we had decent water pressure in the shower. The heating worked well - so all...

Raelene is a great host and opened her entire home up to us. She had a great recommendation of Cafe Matheson for dinner (probably our best meal of the trip) and the views were great! We only stayed one night, but overall a nice place to stay in tiny Fox Glacier.
