5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012 via mobile

Anne & Tony are great hosts. Lovely house, nice, warm & clean. We arrived at night so we weren't able to appreciate the view but we made up for it the next morning when we could view the hills & mountains etc. Breakfast was yummy; fruit compote, yogurts & cereals wit tea/ coffee & toast. Couldnt ask for more. If you're looking for a homely atmosphere & great conversation look no further..anne & tony are the people to stay with.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2011

My wife and I and our 18mth old son stayed with Tony and Ann in late November. Just a short drive to the centre of town and the lake, we were greeted with the warmest welcome in their most lovely home. A most beautiful view of the mountains from our room was something special and your hosts will go out of their way to make your stay most memorable.
We loved it here and the only regrets were we didnt stay long enough! Highly recommended.

Great views in all directions from a beautiful house. Tony and Anne were very friendly and had a good level of knowledge about the area. They invited us for a drink after we arrived and made us feel thoroughly at home. The room was lovely and had the best views in the house. The property sits above the village and is about 10 minutes walking time to the centre.

Anne and Tony were great hosts. As for the house, I don't think I have ever seen a house with 360 degree uninterrupted views quite so spectacular.
We spent a month traveling New Zealand and stayed at hotels the whole time; what a shame!
If all B&B's are like this we missed out.
If we were to go back to Tekapo there is no question where we would stay.

A modern, well appointed, clean accommodation with spectacular 360 degree views. The owners go above and beyond to make you feel at home. They are a New Zealand born couple who know the history and topography of the area. I highly recommend this property.
