Great location

Past guests say ...

The Bivouac house offered by Discover Tekapo was wonderful to stay in for our family and would easily serve bigger groups well – there are three separate toilets! The place is also well furnished, cosy yet modern and has a beautiful balcony on which you can see the stars on a clear-sky night. Possibly our favourite stay of our entire South Island trip!

Love staying in this house.  Great staff at the office with clear instructions to check in. Love they have grill stove at the balcony, the tennis table in the garage and the large table to dine outside with a stunning view. LOVE LOVE LOVE how you can simply stargaze at the balcony without all the hassle. Amazing stay. Would definitely recommend!

Chow – Oct 2023

An absolutely perfect home in a mind-blowing location. View is spectacular, and town is an easy walking distance. The local supermarket is very well stocked. Perfectly suited our two families. We felt right at home.

Brilliant place – really awesome spot!

Darcy – Dec 2022

We loved our stay at Bivouac! This was the nicest house that we’ve stayed in on our New Zealand trip! The porch has a beautiful view of the lake and mountains and is perfect for sunset. We made lots of use of the grill and outside dining table. The showers are amazing and all of the rooms had very comfortable beds. 

Bettina – Feb 2023

The house is really great for families or couples – plenty of room and a wonderful fire for those colder evenings. The decking is great for star gazing at night with beanbags and a hot chocolate!
