We would return without hesitation just to sample Stephanie's special welcome! We arrived late morning and were warmly welcomed by Stephanie who strongly suggested that if we wanted to see Lake Tekapo at its best we should go straight away up to the nearby Mount John Observatory for a fantastic view and maybe a snack for lunch at the café. It was great suggestion: we were blown away by both the spectacular views and the wind! Later we enjoyed a walk around the town and visited the little church but is the lake views we really remember.
Next day we had an excellent breakfast cooked to order in sumptuous surroundings which was also an opportunity to meet, in Stephanie's words, " the other beautiful people" staying there.
We would definitely go back and this time, weather permitting, do the Mount John Star Gazing tour too.
