A spacious, clean and comfortable cottage with excellent facilities, including an outdoor BBQ which my family and I enjoyed very much. The beds were comfortable and the living rooms was spacious. The toilets were very clean and had heated flooring as well. A great cottage to stay for a family of 5 to 6.

Pete, the host of the B&B was really nice and warm! Everything was beyond our expectation. We had a group of 5 so we booked the cottage which we enjoyed exclusively! I wish we had spent more nights there.

Alpine Vista is a spacious cottage. Clean bathrooms, comfortable bed rooms, gorgeous living room. I liked stove and wooden wall! My friend was skipping on the floor! It's easy to take a walk to the lake Tekapo. We saw a star-filled sky in the midnight from the backyard of the cottage. That's so amazing! You had better to bring everything... More

Peter and Jill made our family welcome and provided very valuable trip advice. The cottage comfortably slept our family of four and Lake Tepako provided a stunning stopover on a Queenstown to East Coast trip.

My family (4 adults and 3 children) stayed a night at this beautiful cottage which is cosy, warm and well-equip. It is very spacious for my whole family to move around. Even the kitchen has all we need, including a rice-cooker. The location is fantastic too! Just 3 min drive to the beautiful Lake Tekapo and its famous church and... More

Great cottage with great views. Was very warm and cosy and had everything we needed. Close to town and restaurants, but kitchen was so well equipped we ended up cooking our own meal and watching some of the great dvd's that came with cottage. Would certainly recommend this property.

This house is very comfortable, clean and cozy. It is a perfect place to stay when you have kids or a nice group of friends. In winter you can fill your days with going to skiing, ice skating or enjoying hot spas. There are also nice cafes around. We would go back again:)

We were a party of 6 plus one baby and the house was great for us. Good location in Lake Tekapo (not lake front). Nothing bad to say about our stay. Would definitely recommend it and return if with a party with the same size.
