Shepherd’s View

“Don’t judge a book by it’s cover” applies here! Be prepared to be surprised as you walk through the front door of this newly renovated older Tekapo house, located in the heart of the village.   Check out the reviews from past guests below.

Shepherd’s View offers all you need to enjoy a relaxing holiday – everything has been thought of, including BBQ, gas hot water and a coffee machine!  Soak up the sun on the deck looking out to spectacular views of the lake and mountains.  On wet days relax indoors with a Sky movie or sports game. Central heating throughout keeps it cosy all year around.

Fully fenced, it’s ideal for a family get away or perfect for two couples with all the amenities you need.  Only 5 minutes walk to the village shops, cafes and restaurants.

Past guests say ...

Don’t judge this place by the outside. Well renovated with a fully stocked kitchen, decent tv and an epic view. Private with a walkway down the river to town.

Matt – Sep 2023

Best home we’ve stayed in for Lake Tekapo (we’ve been here 5 times). Home was amazingly warm, spacious, best shower ever!! Quiet, secure and only a 6min walk into the centre. Lovely views of sunrise and the extra pantry items were super helpful! I will definitely be back.

Claire – Mar 2023

A freshly refurbished home with a great family / living room area and a good kitchen. New beds were very comfortable and the house was very clean. Within easy walking distance to town.

Megan – Jan 2022

Great location for Lake Tekapo – 5 mins walking distance to the centre of town. Great views over the lake too. Brilliant space, comfortable beds and nice big lounge/dining room. The kitchen is nice and big with everything you would need. We enjoying having a bbq on the deck too.

Lucy – Dec 2021

Great place for a peaceful stay in Tekapo. Tucked away from the business of the hundreds of tourists, but only a 5 minute walk from the main shops and restaurants when needed. Beautiful view of the lake from the deck. Would definitely stay here again.
