Kitchen at Rosies Backpacker and home stay

Living room

Our living room houses a tuned piano and many a tune has been played for all to enjoy. Guitars – steel-string acoustic, and classical are available on request. Many a jam session has happened in the past.

Kitchen and dining

Stunning views are on offer from our well equipped kitchen, and 2 dining rooms looking towards Lake Te Anau and the mountains beyond. In Te Anau we are surrounded on 3 sides by ranges of mountains. Alternatively the BBQ and tables outside in the picturesque garden are a great option for open air dining. Some herbs are available from the garden if you need some pizzazz for your home cooked meal.


Wi-Fi and a computer are available for use if you need to catch up with family/friends or sort photos.


Laundry facilities are available with washing machine and a dryer, also a line outside if you like your clothes fresh air dried.


Since we have many people staying with us who go off to walk the tracks, over the summer months especially, gear storage is available for what you don’t want to take with you. Also we can recommend where your car can be parked while away enjoying some mountain time.
