This one bedroom house had every comfort, plenty of room to move around in and relax. Great Sky Reception - great for while we were staying over the Olympics period for three nights. Great decking - early morning sun and patio around the side for afternoon sun/relaxing/eating. Very warm, underfloor heating - didn't use wood stove as both warm enough... More

My husband and I stayed for a couple of nights at Mary Hut, a one bedroom holiday home. House is lovely and modern with quality furnishings and underfloor heating. There is also a wood burner which we lit in the evenings. There is also complimentary WIFI. It's a good five minute walk to the local restaurants and supermarket. The home... More

We're glad you enjoyed your stay at Mary Hut. Thanks for the reminder to update our website description, it's hard to keep up with the rapid development here in Lake Tekapo! As you've noted, the views are still excellent of the mountains, with a little less lake view underlined by a new rooftop :) More

We rented "Lucy's Patch" for two nights during the July school holidays. The house was spacious and well equipped. The wood stove was fantastic and kept us all toasty warm. It was nice to have a place all to ourselves. The staff at Lake Tekapo Holiday Homes were very helpful, from booking to checking out. Highly recommended.

I got a tree bedroom house with a very nice view over lake tekapo. The kitchen is big and very convenience to cook. The bed is very comfortable with a warm blanket. The balcony is very good to sit and relax get the fresh air.

This home is near enough to the main town area. If you want a place for 4 just to sleep and have a quick shower then this will be suitable. It has a fair size garden for a small walk or for children to play. We felt that the cleaners did not do a good job of cleaning prior to... More

Would highly recommend staying here. We stayed in the doctors retreat and it was just amazing. Spotlessly clean, lovely homely feel, all the utensils, equipment you need, immaculate furnishings etc and a great view of the lake. The ladies in the office were very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Wished we could stay longer. Can't... More

Got a beautiful house with a nice size for a family of 5. Close proximity to restaurants and shops. The house is nice and clean with backyard overlook the beautiful lake. They have got all the amenities which is great. However the hot water was very limited. Once the hot water ran out, we had to wait for another 3... More

As an architecture enthusiast, I was immediately drawn to Marys Hut's colorbond exterior when I saw it's image come up on Lake Tekapo Homes website and persuaded my partner to let me book it for one night stay even before we planned our 7 day south island itinerary. I was so glad we booked it early because it looked to... More

Thank you for you very generous review. You are right about the intention to enjoy the view from every window at Mary Hut - including the loo! However there are a few neighbours now where there were none a year ago so we will definitely suggest to the owners that they consider a window treatment. We'll look forward to hosting... More

Stayed at the Garden Tower. We had the top and middle floors. The units are decent although had a bit of a motel feel. Location was great though, good view of the lake and the Church so if you are a camera enthusiast and want to catch sunrise/sunset there before the crowds set in this would probably be the perfect...
