Bathrooms are modern, clean and beautifully presented. It is... 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.

Very nice, clean, comfortable, spacious self-contained apartments. The open heater in the lounge was a plus. The hosts were lovely and we appreciated the extra inclusions in the kitchen and free wifi. Japanese restaurant in town was also great recommendation.

Great property with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (one ensuite). Superb fittings and furnishings throughout the property. Kitchen well equipped. Books, board games, dvds are there ready for enjoyment. Generous internet allowance (1 GB) for each person, and the wifi connection was really fast and good. Would love to stay here again.

Great location with spectacular view of the mountains. Very spacious cottage which was well heated an had everything we needed. Would definitely stay again. Very cost effective as we were staying as 2 couples and each had our own bathroom.

This is the best holiday house that we have stayed in. Spectacularly clean, beautiful bed linen, supremely warm, easy to keep warm and proper inner sprung mattresses (not uncomfortable foam mattresses on the single beds). Pete and Jill you have thought of every little thing that guests may need or want. 5 minute walk to town centre and lovely mountain... More

I wasn't sure whether to rate this cottage "very good" or "excellent" to begin with. I was a bit disappointed with the area (street) at first but the view of the mountains is superb, although I couldn't see the lake very well. The house itself was fantastic. Very comfortable and beautifully warm. The linen was lovely and the place was... More
