We stayed at this private lovely Henkel Hut for 2 nights (wish we could have made this place a permanent stay). The hut was spacious, cosy and offers a charming view of Lake Tekapo. The host, Zita is very friendly and made us feel welcome. Also, the Chalet is near the Church, restaurants and a mini supermarket - less than a 5 minutes drive.
Lake Tekapo was truly gorgeous and you could also drive to Mt John or Mt Cook as a day trip. Highly recommend the Chalet to everyone, it will definitely make your trip a memorable one. We can't wait to be back to catch the Milky way and stars gazing!
