Araki is an older 'kiwi bach‘ which has recently been renovated.

Set in the heart of Tekapo, within easy walking distance of the lake front, shops and cafes.   

The lower level offers 4 bedrooms.  The master queen has it's own ensuite, while the other 3 rooms share a second bathroom.  Relax in the sunny new second living area with a log fire.

Upstairs is an open plan kitchen, dining and living area, clad in exposed timber.   The modern, fully equipped kitchen has all you need to prepare your holiday meals to share around the dining table.  The living area has ample seating to relax in, with a flatscreen TV and a selection of books to enjoy.

The upstairs opens out to a very sunny north facing deck, where you can enjoy lake and mountain views.  There is also a small BBQ available.

As well as a heat pump/air conditioning unit, there is a “potbelly” log burner.  A Tesla electric vehicle charger is available for use in the garage.

Araki also welcomes well-behaved family dogs, so your whole family can enjoy the break.  See our FAQ's for more details.

Please note: post-renovation landscaping is still a work in progress

For larger groups, the adjoining Kaltech House may also be booked, depending on availability.

  • We loved this place. Lots of room for a busy family. Great to have some games and books available. Easy walking distance to the shops and lakefront. Would definitely stay again.

  • This house was the perfect kiwi bach ! All the beds had electric blankets and two wood fires made it super cosy even on a cold night! Lovely place with LOTS of space!!

  • The large open plan room upstairs was amazing, I loved the balcony with the fantastic view.

    Debra (UK) - Oct, 2019

  • Lovely cosy home, two wood burning fireplaces, heat pumps and electric blankets kept us toasty warm. Nice comfy leather lounges and great dining table and kitchen with lake views! Deck for viewing the stars on as well. Was so close to town, easy walking distance and good value. Would definitely stay again!

  • We loved this place - you even have a great selection of music to listen when you're enjoying the view of Lake Tekapo and Southern Alps from the upper deck.
