Church View

A classic ‘kiwi’ holiday home, Church View is wonderfully located just a few minutes walk from the village and lake front. This sunny older-style house looks down the river to the lake, mountains and Church of the Good Shepherd.  Enjoy the stunning views from a large sunny deck, with seating and a BBQ.  Fantastic for star-gazing at Tekapo’s clear night sky.  Stay cosy around the log fire in winter.

Offering 2 queen bedrooms and a twin, with separate shower, toilet and bathroom (with bathtub), spacious living area and well equipped kitchen.  All bedrooms and living spaces are on the second floor, and the entrance is by stairs.

By prior agreement Church View also welcomes well-behaved dogs, so your whole family can enjoy the break (fenced deck & back section).  See our FAQ’s for more details.

Past guests say ...

Great location. Easy walk to town and walking tracks. Comfortable living area for the whole family. There was even plastic plates and bowels for the wee ones. Separate bath, toilet and shower make life easy with a bigger family. We would definitely stay again.

Erin – Nov 2023

A little old and creaky but that added to the wooden cabin experience! Great location, very well equipped, amazing shower and extremely nice host company to deal with. Would recommend.

Peter – Mar 2023

Lovely and clean accommodation; perfect location. Fully equipped kitchen and lots of family games to play!

Liz – Feb 2023

Great stay for the whole family! We loved the house, very cute and homey, great location and views too. Would stay again.

Kajsa – Jan 2023

Our family of four had a great stay at this place. Only a few minutes—walking—to Lake Tekapo and the Church of Good Shepherd via a trail path next to the house. The house itself was spacious, the laundry facilities worked well, and the view from the balcony was beautiful, both during the day and at night.

Fei – Jan 2023

Lovely wee holiday home. Very cosy with the fire going in the evening. Great location, only a few mins walk into town. Great place for the dogs as well.
