“Must be the best view in Lake Tekapo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

We have stayed in this apartment few years ago and loved it. So when we decided to visit Lake Tekapo again, it was a no brainier that this is the place we want to go back too. I wish I could wake up to that view every morning! Hosts Kaori and Ban are very lovely, and make sure you have everything you need. Location of the apartment is only a short walk into town, to the lake or to the Good Shepherd church. It is very warm and cosy, and you have everything you might need available. I would highly recommend this to anyone planning a visit to Lake Tekapo.

Thank you for your lovely comments ! We would love to see you for your third stay with us. You stayed here winter twice. You should come and stay in Summer. The atmosphere and views are different every season.

This is a delightful and very comfortable self contained modern apartment, with a good sized lounge and fully equipped kitchen area. The separate bedroom and bathroom are light with large windows and glass doors. The apartment also has a washing machine and dryer, LCD TV and WIFI.

There are stunning views of the lake and mountains from every room, including a large balcony accessed via the lounge.

Lake Tekapo's shops and restaurants and the scenic Church of the Good Shepherd are just a five minute stroll away.

The owners, Ban and Kaori are charming and maintain the apartment in spotless condition.

This is possibly the best place to stay in Tekapo. The views are stunning. The appartment is lovely. Ban and Kaori are very nice people. We were here with our daugthers second birthday and she got a little present from Kaori. Tekapo is also a very scenic place with the well known church, the mountain views, mount john observatory and mount cook nearby.
Very cool features of the appartment are: the amount of big windows and glass doors and the sky light window above the bed. Stargazing is one of the activities Tekapo is famous for, B2 is the most comfortable place to watch from :-)

My wife and I stayed 3 nights in this spacious, upstairs apartment; it's only a 5 minute walk into Tekapo Village. It has stunning views of the lake, the Good Shepherd church and the surrounding mountains from every room (including the bath!). The separate bedroom is a good size, the bed is large and comfortable and there's a separate spacious lounge and kitchenette. Everything is new, clean and well maintained by the Japanese owners who are very friendly and speak good English. Ban and Kaori have put a lot of thought into providing many small details and touches to make the stay enjoyable. There are electric blankets, heaters and underfloor heating. The deck is a compact but okay. The north facing sunny aspect completes the package. The apartment is only approx. 150 m from the main highway - road noise however was not an issue at the time of the year we stayed (we slept with the doors and windows closed). You'll love the notices everywhere telling you where everything's kept and which switch turns on which light. Ban even washed our car for us before our departure! Highly recommended.

The views from every room in the apartment are fantastic, the lounge has large sliding doors with a balcony overlooking lake tekapo and you can even take a bath whilst surveying them! The evening skies are incredible and you can visit the local observatory for a stargazing tour. The apartment itself is very well equipped and there is a convenience store just down the road. Wish we could have stayed more than the one night.

Located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, this apartment is a great choice when staying at Lake Tekapo. There is a path that takes you straight into town (~5 min walk). The apartment has beautiful views of the lake, kitchenette, washer/dryer, a little balcony, and a spa bath. The apartment itself is located above the owners house (which didn’t affect our privacy at all). The apartment was also beautifully furnished. We didn’t think the window above the bed was that fantastic (although we did have a full moon, so that might have affected the number of stars we saw). The owner was very friendly and provided helpful advice on where to eat in town. The bed, although very big (two king singles pushed together) was not the most comfortable. All things considered, I’d definitely stay here again.
