  • Great location, but too cozy, especially the bathroom and outdated but clean.

    Nice set of cottages at a walking distance from Lake Tekapo. The kitchen was well equipped for us to prepare a meal. Car could be parked right in front of your cottage.

    Quaint cabin stay

    This quaint little place was perfect for a quick stop on Lake Tekapo. It felt like we were cabin camping, and were just a quick walk away from the lake and the bridge that connected to town. The room was large and pleasant (more like a small apartment) with a kitchen included.

    The cottages seem like they have been recently remodeled. Brand new appliances and fixtures. Everything was thought out well. Heated mattresses on all beds. Super close to bars/restaurants in town. Person working at the office is gracious and kind. Would return.

    Not many options in Tekapo.. but find another one

    There are several cottages available, so perhaps not all are created equal. The large 3 bedroom cottage was.. a bit weird. A strange combination of 70s and contemporary decor. Well maintained retro is cool, but this seemed like a bunch of leftover stuff in various levels of disrepair. Shower didn't work particularly well; the cartridge needs to be replaced in the faucet. It was also very difficult to get the room temperature correct. All in all, I wouldn't come back.

    Lake Tekapo great for water Sports!

    Lake Tekapo is a beautiful vacation spot for water sports and nearby Mt John was a delight to visit. Our cottage was adequately sized, relatively clean and contained all the amenities needed for a short stay, but the furnishings were old and worn and the beds were not comfortable. The hot tub was clean and well maintained but the cover needed to be replaced as it weighed a ton and was hard to move.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    We thought we booked a place in town near the lake and the church, but it was just the location of the check-in office. Our unit was actually located about 1.5km away up in the hills on Aorangi Cres. It seems they manage many units around town so there could be other units closer or further from the town center. We were given a hand drawn map with driving instructions but not a precise location of the rental home. The address wasn't displayed clearly so we had to drive up/down the street a couple times before we found the right place. The home was quite large with 4-5 bedrooms (I lost count) for just 2 of us. The home was clean but decor is a bit dated. It looks like your standard winter lodge/home. The master bath looks to be recently renovated and had a very modern decor. It was very nice but did not match the rest of the decor. There's a hot tub and a nice big yard, which might be nice for families or larger groups. There's a long driveway that could probably fit 3 cars. Kitchen is stocked if you want to cook but they were missing black pepper. There's also a washing machine but no dryer. Overall a comfortable place but the extra rooms and space were wasted on us (2 people). We would've preferred a smaller, cozier place closer to town (if they have that option available).

    Our cottage despite being dated was perfect for our needs. It had lovely views, great facilities including a washing machine, was in a quiet location but only 5 minutes from the village. The weather was cold but the free heating worked well. We had a friendly reception from Steve.
