Welcome to Loch Vista

Experience uninterrupted lake views & warm country B&B hospitality

Conveniently located on the Milford Sound highway, Loch Vista bed and breakfast villa is set on 4 acres of rural land, surrounded by lake and mountain views and just a 5km drive from the Te Anau town centre. 

Come and relax in our spacious outdoor areas, enjoy tranquil star filled skies, panoramic landscapes, and the ever changing scenery of beautiful New Zealand.

Guests are welcome to hand feed our pet sheep Chubby, stroll the grounds, and even view our classic 1959 Ford Thunderbird convertible.


Rural comforts & comfortable B&B accommodation

Loch Vista offers lakeview bed and breakfast accommodation overlooking beautiful Lake Te Anau and the surrounding Murchison mountains.

A delicious continental breakfast is prepared each morning which can be enjoyed at the breakfast bar overlooking the lake.

Loch Vista has a large common lounge and outdoor areas where guests are free to relax and enjoy.

Te Anau town centre is just a 5 km drive from Loch Vista where there is a great selection of  restaurants, supermarkets and shops.

As your live-in host, I enjoy sharing my local Fiordland knowledge with guests and look forward to welcoming you to our touch of paradise.

Had an amazing time at Loch Vista, Phil made us feel at home! The room had everything we needed, I really enjoyed the breakfast with like-minded people around the table, and the view was stunning!


So nice place, with a beautiful view over Lake Te Anau and the mountains. Loch Vista is on a hill and the host will tell you great stories and events you can visit. Rooms are very clean and big. Te Anau is nearby.


We had a wonderful stay at this great B&B. Clean rooms and home with a fantastic host in Phil. Phil has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the area – is super helpful and very accommodating. Lots to do around the house too – from feeding Chubby the sheep , checking out Phil’s vintage cars to stargazing at night. Hope to be back some day . Thanks again Phil


Wonderful place to stay. The house is so comfortable, cosy and clean!!!
The view to the lake and mountains from the window are incredible!!

A wonderful welcome from owner Phil. Felt very at home. So good to soak sore muscles after 3 days on the Routeburn track.
Beautiful views and location. Loved watching the birds at breakfast.
Phil even posted my jacket back to me… such personal service!


Beautiful view, stunning starry night and the easiest best host


We stayed with Phil at Loch Vista in March of 2020. What a great place! The view of the lake is fantastic and Phil is a generous and friendly host. We were very pleased with our rooms which were spacious and very clean. Loch Vista is close to town which made it easy to use as a base to visit all there is to see in the area. I highly recommend this B & B for your visit.
