Uninterrupted lake views

This place is fantastic! Huge house with amazing views of the lake. It has everything you could ask for. Family of four loved staying here. Would recommend to anyone looking to stay in Tekapo.

Lovely accommodation, clean, peaceful. Great view of the lake, great location close to the shops and Springs. Would stay here again.

Michael – Feb 2023

The views from this house are amazing! Spacious modern house with great outdoor dining area with awesome views of lake and mountains. Spotlessly clean and loads of room inside and very comfortable beds!

Gavin – Jan 2023

Our stay with Discover Tekapo was absolutely faultless. The accommodation was immaculately presented, the location was stunning and we can’t wait to return! Highly recommend!

Andrew – Dec 2022

Amazing stay! Felt right at home upon entering. It was raining so we parked in the garage which came as a surprise as I didn’t notice it had one when I booked. Awesome waking up to the lake view.

Alicia – Nov 2022

Lake Watch is the most impressive holiday house I have ever stayed at! It boasts direct views to the lake and snow capped mountains with all day sun and a pleasant stroll to the lake. Spacious and well designed with a cosy fireplace, modern kitchen and dining area with views to the lake. The 3 bedrooms are well separated for privacy and the bathrooms are spacious and there is even a bath for relaxing in after a day’s skiing!
