Awa Cottage

A compact but cleverly designed space, Awa Cottage is a lovely, sunny, fully self-contained accommodation perfectly located in the heart of Tekapo.  Whilst offering plenty of soul, this 2 bedroom cottage is modern and warm, with under tile heating and air conditioning. It includes a well equipped kitchen, bathroom and laundry facilities.   A small private courtyard with outdoor seating is a fantastic spot for viewing Tekapo’s renown night sky, and offers a peephole view of the nearby Church of the Good Shepherd.

Simply cross the street to the iconic Tekapo footbridge which provides a short walk into the village eateries and shops, or amble a short distance along the riverside to the lakefront, church and walking tracks.

The perfect Tekapo retreat for friends or a small family.

Past guests say ...

We have stayed in Airbnb’s around the world. This one is right at the top. Private, decorated nicely, location was perfect. As we are entering winter, the electric blankets were a very nice touch.

Bruce – May 2024

A very cosy and inviting space. It was freezing at Tekapo so the warmth of the place, figuratively and literally, was much welcomed.
It is also conveniently located right next to the town centre across the bridge, and the Church of the Good Shepherd is within view right outside the window. My mom and I both enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

Sean – May 2024

A beautiful cottage in a beautiful town, absolutely loved every minute. 10/10 would recommend

Tom – April 2024

We loved this place!! Really close to the Church and the lake – perfect for walking, watching the sunrise, and look at the stars. The place was super cozy and cute inside and out.

Allyson – April 2024

Great cottage, even nicer than pictures. Sofa is super comfy, beds too. Kitchen well stocked. We had all we needed and felt at home. Location is awesome, right at the heart of tekapo yet quiet.
