Lake tekapo is a picture to look at. Glacier blue water with a backdrop of an alpine mountain range. This B & B is excellent with friendly hosts who left the fast life of Aukland for the beauty and peacefulness of this lovely place. Breakfast was superb and the bedroom everything one could want. Reasonably priced.

The cottage was delightful, neat and absolutely spotless plus very well equipped with anything you may need in the kitchen. It was nice and warm when we arrived, with the heat pump set up - a thoughtful gesture.. Great location and views. Would definitely recommend and go there again.

We were two couples traveling together so this worked perfectly. Cost was reasonable since we split the total. Clean, comfortable, lots of room, and we enjoyed the washer/dryer to clean a few items since we had 5 more days ahead of us. Recommend highly.

We and our friends spent a night at the Alpine Vista Cottage. It is is quite spacious,, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, a living room, dining area and fully equipped kitchen. Everything was spotlessly clean and comfortable. An excellent place to stay if you are more than two people.

A spacious, clean and comfortable cottage with excellent facilities, including an outdoor BBQ which my family and I enjoyed very much. The beds were comfortable and the living rooms was spacious. The toilets were very clean and had heated flooring as well. A great cottage to stay for a family of 5 to 6.
