About
Description
Nestled in a quiet corner of the village and set in a beautiful garden, we are only 300 metres from the bus-stop and the Village shops. Lake Tekapo is half-way between Christchurch and Queenstown/Wanaka More (all less than 3 hours away) and we are only just over one hour from Aoraki / Mt Cook. Less
