“Amazing view, great facilities and location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2011

The view from this apartment is stunning. The location is perfect. Everything you would need is there, including a washer and dryer. Our host was so cute and friendly and she recommended a great Japanese restaurant right on the lake with fantastic food and really fresh salmon. My only very minor complaint was that the bed was a tad bit uncomfortable for me, as I found the bed a bit too firm. But I am an extremely light sleeper so I am very picky about beds and pillows. My husband slept fine and found it very comfortable. She also has some DVD's so my husband and I really enjoyed watching Aladdin while cuddlign on the couch underneath the 'cuddle me' blanket!

This is our second stay in B2 apartment. You get exactly what is shown on their web site. I cannot fault the apartment. The beds are very comfortable. The arae is very quiet and peaceful.

Kitchen has all the utensils to cook if desired.

You just cant go past the stunning view from the balcony

Yes i certainly will be looking forward to our 3rd stay in the future

My husband and myself had a wonderful time at B2. 5 star accomodation. Kaori the owner was very welcoming and her apartment was beautifully appointed with fantastic views. We loved the added touch of the window in the bedroom ceiling that you could look at the stars from your bed at night. We could only have 1 night there but will remember it with the fondest of memories.
We left our esky bag behind and Kaori took the trouble of driving into town to find us.
Thanks so much for a memorable stay.

B2 is centrally located overlooking the lake and the church of the Good Sheperd.The apartment itself is very clean ,roomy,excellent bed and bathroom and very well equipped-all those little extras which make your stay more comfortable. The owner (cannot remember her name) is very friendly and helpful .Unfortunately the weather was not great during our 2 nights there but that did not take away from the beauty of the place.Would highly recommend this apartment

Kaori (sp?) was the friendliest! The apartment (esp the bathroom) is very well done and the view is breathtaking. Oh and the dog was very sweet!

We stayed at B2 for two nights as a base for a day at Mt Cook. Lake Tekapo is majestically beautiful and B2 is magical. The apartment is located at the end of a cul de sac, is quiet, quite small, and located up a flight of stairs, with stunning views of the lake. However, it lacks nothing and is spotlessly clean. The bed is gigantic and comfortable, with lovely linen and pillows. The bathroom has a great shower and separate bath. The kitchen is fully equipped, with quality appliances, a full oven and 4 hot plates, and a washing machine and dryer are provided. For colder weather, there is underfloor heating, heaters and an electric blanket. Just perfect.

It wasn't cheap, but it was worth every cent.

We would love to visit again - for a much longer stay. Highly recommended.

A one bedroom apartment, with luxury amenities to make you feel at home. Great location with a great view to the lake and surrounding mountains. Equipped with a kitchen, it had Sky TV, free wireless broadband and a bathroom boasting the same great view of the lake and mountains. During our stay, it rained briefly and a rainbow completed our picture postcard view of the lake, mountains and the Church of the Little Shepherd. This was easily our best accommodation on our holiday (we stayed at 6 other places), and well worth the money for a memorable holiday.
