“Simply Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2009

Decided to take the family away for the weekend to Tekapo and came across The Residence on Google. I travel on business quite a lot and don't like going away from home much. BUT, I would definitely go away again and stay here. It is a little more expensive than other Tekapo accommodation, but very reasonable by international standards. The gas fire had been turned on ready for our arrival and the place was spotlessly clean. I felt relaxed as soon as I walked in the door. You are completely self contained and have a fully equipped kitchen. Heated floors in the bathroom, comfortable beds...................................5 Star in my opinion.

What a fantastic property! We have found this apartments last year, and we promised to ourselves that we will be back, and so we did. We have stayed from the 6 to the 20 of Aug in the Residence apartments on the beautiful and surreal LAke Tekapo. The apartments are 5 start, you find good quality bedding, heating systms, etc. The kids loved to come back to the apartments to watch Cartoon Network after a day of skiing in the nearby Roundhill ski centre about 30 min driving from the apartments. The place is quiet, well equiped like home away from home. The manager Brian is a star in customer service, fantastic, anything you need he'll there for you, Lake tekapo is a great place, restaurants like the chinesse or the pizza place are very good. I will be back every year to stay in this place, nothing compares in price and fantastic atenttion to detail like The residence. Highly, Highly recommended for families with young children, tenagers or singles. Ah the snow is awesome in August!!!!
