The house is spick and span and we stayed there for 2 nights. The open concept at 2nd floor is refreshing and the fireplace using cones as fire starters is an eye opener. We love the service of Patricia as she treated us like friends. She is an excellent host telling us everything we want to know about attractions in Lake Tekapo. According to her advice, we drove to Astro Cafe up at Mt John, and it was the highlight of our stay.
The view overlooking the dog stature is awesome. We are also within walking distance to the Church. We can even view the stars from Opera House at the balcony.
The only drawback I would say is the weather. It was awfully cold and windy and we are from the tropics and we are not used to the cold.

- Parkbrae Estate is so much more than a stay... it is an experience! Preferred by so many due to its unique style cottages and units (apartments), peaceful surroundings and privileged location! No doubt the spot in Tekapo! Only a stone's throw away from the stunning turquoise lake and a few steps from the Church of Good Shepherd and Collie Dog Statue, Tekapo's best known icons!! When at Parkbrae Estate, wake up to breathtaking scenery or warm up by the fire on a cold winter night... stroll through the gardens with camera in hand soaking up the morning light... sit on the balcony with a book or a glass of the finest NZ wine...wait until the stars come out in the mesmerizing night sky and make a wish... or two... Perfect for romantic getaways, family holidays, weddings, gatherings or just an excuse to treat yourself!! ... more less
