  • Great location, says 14 minute walk on goggle to village but in reality is much less. Dog park is within walking distance - this was ideal for the morning walk before going out and exploring for the day. Set back from the road, peaceful and quiet, ideal get away from the rush of city life.

    Bree (NZ) - Feb, 2022

    Lydia (NZ) - Feb, 2022

  • Beautiful private wee place, out door bath is amazing, love how it’s pet friendly and fenced off, had a great stay

    Corina (NZ) - Jan, 2022

  • Perfect place to stay in Tekapo, Lake is just down the driveway! This will be the spot my family stays for future trips

    Matthew (NZ) - Dec, 2021

  • Outstanding accommodation in such a top spot in the beautiful Tekapo! Whilst there is no view from the property you are literally a 20 second stroll to the lake frontage so the location is second to none. The cottage itself was funky, well equipped, warm and just charming and the communication and help from Discover Tekapo was great. Dog friendly with a fully fenced garden and the perfect location for walkies at any time of the day!

    Jenn (NZ) - Nov, 2021

  • Would definitely recommend this place. Very well appointed and location is also good. You'll want to stay for a week at least!

    Davin (NZ) - Oct, 2021

  • This was a great stay! We had the most amazing time here and it was perfect for a relaxing weekend away. The outdoor bath and indoor fire place were definitely highlights of our trip.

    Brenna (NZ) - Sep, 2021

  • Absolutely stunning place to stay in, definitely our favourite so far!! The fire was so toasty to have on during the winter and the bathtub outside was massive and so relaxing!

    Jenna (NZ) - Jun, 2021

  • Definitely will stay again!! Beds were great, lots of room, great kitchen, can't fault it really....and an outside bath!!!

    Dorothy (N.Z) - Oct, 2019

    Anonymous (Australia) - Nov, 2018

  • We loved the cottage. It was quiet and secluded yet a short stroll from the center of town. We stayed for two nights on our honeymoon with our 11 month old in tow and had a wonderful time.

    Chris (Australia) - Mar, 2018

  • We loved the property! Being so new it is very lovely and fresh! Walking distance to most things & close to the lake. Lots of amenities!

    Helena (Australia) - Feb, 2018
