- Amazing large open house the views were incredible, the Spas were a great time waster and the gas fire in the lounge was divine. It felt very homely and we cant wait to come back in summer and enjoy the pool
Peter (NZ) - Jul, 2020
- The house is excellent, very well finished and very comfortable and relaxing. Beautiful view over Lake Tekapo. Great landscaping around the house which provides quite good privacy to the deck and spa. The pool was great to have and so was the spa. Lounge and living space including the kitchen were very spacious and modern.

Edward (N.Z) - Jan, 2020
- Absolutely beautiful place to stay in Tekapo. The location of the property was amazing. We loved being up on the hill with fantastic views, yet close enough to walk into town for groceries or dinner. The entire living area was fantastic.
Anthony (U.S) - Jan, 2020
- The house is charming! Very new and beautifully decorated, it sits on a high part of the city where you can have an amazing view of the lake from almost every room.
Guilherme (Brazil) - Jan, 2020
- I highly recommend this place! The house is modern, clean and super spacious. We had a late check in here and they were more than willing to accommodate. The space was extraordinarily clean and modern. The balcony views were also stunning. It was simply wonderful.
