  • A great space for family and friends! Amazing lounge space with log burner - nothing beats the heat of log fire. All the essentials for cooking is provided. Great selection of toys for kids (we brought a 2 year old).

  • A lovely modern house with all the features you need for a great stay including a log burning fire. It has beautiful views of the lake and mountains. It was especially great for toddlers with loads of toys and books to keep them entertained.

  • We had really enjoyed our stay in Stargate Retreat! Lovely place with plenty of heating for cold winter days! The place was clean and in a very convenient location, and the view every morning looking out to lake tekapo is priceless! Had clear winter night where we could see the whole entire Milky Way which was a highlight of our trip!

    Faye (NZ) - Aug, 2021

  • Lovely house with Great Lake views! A walking track behind the house goes up the hill and is perfect for viewing stars at night. A lovely feeling of space and relaxation, and warm even when the temperatures dropped. We had a great stay, thanks.

    Jeremy (NZ) - Apr, 2021

  • Wonderfully modern and streamlined home was so fun for a long weekend. Bathrooms are super modern and clean. View out to the lake is gorgeous and we loved the hiking trails right across the street. Plus kids springfree trampoline was a hit.

    Fran (NZ) - Oct, 2020

  • A great home to relax and unwind. Clean & really spacious. We loved making a lovely fire when the weather was miserable outside. Highly recommended as somewhere to chill & enjoy.

    Cheryl (Singapore) - Mar, 2020

  • We loved our stay at Stargate Retreat. Pictures don’t do justice to how beautiful the view is from the living room. Very clean and tidy space in a modern setting with everything you will need for a comfortable stay. Our hosts communicated with us frequently till check in and even accommodated a late check in. Do not miss an opportunity to sit in the yard and stargaze at night.

    Niveditha (Australia) - Feb, 2020

  • Great, stylish space perfect for exploring tekapo. The house is well decorated and supplied, perfect for families with young children as full of toys and books to entertain in addition to all you'd need to cook. Fantastic views of the lake.
