Comfortable and welcoming, and what a view!

A wonderful place to stay close to Franz Josef Glacier and very close to Fox Glacier. Jacinta and Peter's B&B is attached to the family home (the kitchen/dining area is shared) and we really enjoyed talking with them during our 2 night stay. Our room was clean and very comfortable and even had a little vanity basin for brushing teeth/doing makeup since we didn't have an ensuite. The shared bathroom was very clean and spacious and we never had to wait to use it. The toilet is separate to the bathroom, which meant we could use that even if someone was having a shower. The best part for us as animal lovers was the farm-stay experience. They have cows, horses, donkeys, dogs, cats, peacocks and a gorgeous rooster. Of course, if you don't like animals, you wouldn't have to go near them, but for us it was a bonus. We were lucky enough for the clouds to disperse in the evening and to have the most majestic view of Mt Cook and Mt Tasman as we were having a bit to eat at the guest dining table. We'd highly recommend Clearwater BnB for couples and families. Monika, Sydney
