Sorry for late comments! But I still have a remarkable memory for this hostel!! I stay at one of the house called Mack between 17-19 Nov 2016, a new house for 2. Why i wanna comment after 4months is because of incredible. Free Parking, well equipped kitchen, big living room with balcony, comfortable bedroom. When i was sitting at the...

A clean modern house with mountain views.one draw back was the complete lack of privacy when sitting outside for our evening meal. The property sits on a crossroads of 2 busy streets and a busy footpath runs along the sitting area side. The other side is out of bounds as it is the access to another house behind. We would...

We spent two nights at the church house which was right at the other side of the street from The Church of the Good Shepard and right at the Lake Tekapo. This house offers an awesome view on the lake! Interior is rather practical than fancy but offered everything we needed. Reception staff was very friendly. We'd absolutely recommend this...

We stayed in this delightful mini house for 2 nights. Recommend highly. A very pleasant view and can see the beautiful lake from the driveway. It is extremely comfortable and quiet. We were welcomed at reception and given good recommendations for places to eat, which we followed up. Lake Tekapo is a beautiful place to stay.

Stayed with my wife in one of their house, Lucy, in feb 2017, price was not cheap. When we first entered the house, we noted a strange unpleasant smell. We thought it could be lack of ventilation or left behind by earlier cooking etc. We opened all windows and smell eased a bit. Then we found the bin was not...

Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry you did not enjoy your stay. It sounds as though the cleaning staff may have missed a rubbish bin which would happily have remedied if we had known immediately. The oven just needed to be reset which we would also have done for you. The cottage has since had some extra...

Cindy in the holiday homes office was very helpful. The house we stayed in was looking a little jaded, but it was a last minute booking and all the best properties were taken, so we made the most of it. Great views from the bedroom windows made up for the poor quality of the property. We are returning to Lake...

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.
