What a wonderful stay we had at this lovely lodge. Stephanie and Alistair have poured their hearts and soul into creating a simply outstanding experience for everyone who stays here. We came down to Lake Tekapo for our friends wedding in the middle of winter on a particularly cold weekend. Personally I really feel the cold, so I was hoping...

Hi Kim! What a lovely surprise to wake up to an alert of a review and to read your glowing report. Makes us feel a little bit embarrassed as we just treat our guests how we would expect others to treat us... however we are very pleased you took the time to write a review so for that many thanks....

Spent one night at this lodge on our way to Dunedin. It was a lovely cosy lodge with extremely friendly hosts. Alistair and Stephanie were very sweet. Nothing was too much for both of them. Stephanie answered all our questions and made us feel at home and Alistair cooked us an amazing breakfast! Stop by if you are close by...

My son and I were on a two week road trip in NZ and drove up from Queenstown through Wanaka and needed a good place to stop before sunset at Lake Takapo.

Thanks KD! Lovely to have you both here. I hope you were rooting for the "mainlanders" when you watched the rugby final?! Just for readers of the reviews, please be aware that our rooms have one bed only - a superking, not two beds. Hope to see you again one day, Stephanie

Being first timers to New Zealand and trusting all our travel and accommodation details to a NZ Travel Company 'First Light' to organise our Honeymoon stay accommodation.

We had a wonderful stay here with Stephanie and Alistair on 30 April 2015 . Sadly we could only stay one night as we were touring around both the North and South Islands during our whirlwind visit to New Zealand. The view from the breakfast room and our bedroom was absolutely breathtaking. The rooms are fabulously luxurious and the separate...

My husband and I stayed here last weekend and could not recommend the lodge highly enough. The weather was dreadful but the warm and sunny welcome we received from Stephanie and Alistair more than made up for that. Our room was beautifully decorated, as is the whole house. There is wonderful artwork and furniture throughout the lodge. There is a...

Alistair and Stephanie make you most welcome the moment you arrive welcoming you more like friends to their home rather than guests to their lodge.
