What an amazing place!! Our cottage was new, very well equipped, quite large and beautifully decorated. The Nokomia Valley Lodge is located on a 97,000 acre sheep and cattle ranch. It is surrounded by beautiful foothill mountains with a river. The views are stunning in all directions. The staff and owners are so genuinely pleasant and so accommodating. The meals are homemade and delicious. We spent 2 days fly fishing for brown trout with a wonderful guide, Graeme Watson who I also highly recommend.

Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!!! Accommodation, food and service were all outstanding. A great spot for a 25th Wedding Anniversary. Plenty to do: relaxing, walking, fishing, watching farm activities, enjoying the history of the area. Close to Queenstown and Invercargill, so an easy 1-1.5hr drive. Fairly pricey, but you won’t regret it.

Wonderful stay at Nokomai station for four nights, under the charm of the rolling mountain views and big skies, on a working sheep farm. If was a grand end for our month's trip to NZ. Ann's hospitality and fine cooking, as well as her interesting farm-tour gave us a good idea of kiwi big sheep-farm life. Louise's charm and her enthousiasm in wine-tasting gave the hosted dinners a special touch, encouraging lively and interesting discussions with the visiting US fly-fishermen. We also did a day-trip to Milford sound, thru Te Anau, and local walks.

Nakomi Station is spectacular. Beautiful location. The grounds and cottages are well kept. The meals were truly gourmet and servings generous. Ann and Louise and Wendy were wonderful hosts. The opportunity to share meals with the other guests was a bonus. Table discussion with gentlemen from Australia and US added to our experience. The fishing was fabulous and our guides, Graeme and Quentin, were knowledgeable and worked hard to get us into good fish. 5 stars is not enough!

This is a working station that now has a few guest cottages. The cottage we had was spacious, simply but well furnished. Dinner and breakfast fast served with all the guests at one table. The food was beautifully prepared and more than generous. The other guests went fishing with a guide and were enthusiastic, but we chose to walk and it was beautiful. In the afternoon we had a farm tour which I highly recommend- we learned so much. This is a gracious and charming place - stay at least 2 nights!!!
