We stayed here for two nights as part of our honeymoon and we had a fantastic time. The views from the bed was amazing. This place is only two minutes walk to the church and right by lake Tekapo. There is cooking facilities including a gas cooker, an oven and a fridge. There is a cheeky PlayStation too, although we...

We've stayed in 3 different holiday homes & all exceeded our expectation for the price. Managed to get 2 holiday homes side by side so great for a large group. Very obliging managers as our numbers changed but that wasn't a problem.

Tekapo is developing rapidly and presents as a busy line of tourist shops and restaurants along the main road with a lot of housing, mostly on the side away from the lake. Best feature is the view of the mountains and the proximity to the Mt John observatory. The Holiday homes are scattered around and are all different. Ours was...

This place was beautiful, inside and out. The big, surrounding windows gave views of the mountains which were awe inspiring. The house was within walking distance of the lake and the little town. The telescope that was there pointed directly to Mount John Observatory which was pretty neat. Definitely would stay here again.

We had 3 little families in this 3 bedroom house. It was a good size, warm, tidy, cozy with a rip roaring fire and had everything you need. The view was to die for. The check in team very obliging and friendly.

A two storey apartment, 2 rooms upstairs and an en-suite unit downstairs which is slightly older. Very cosy upper level with nice fire place, big living room, deck and kitchen. Good for family. Good location near to the gorgeous Lake. You can watch the stars from your apartment. Fittings are old but comfortable enough. Excellent helpful hosts!
