Our family of 4 simply love this cottage the minute we opened the door! Spacious and well decorated cottage with a fire place nicely setup waiting to be lit! The view from balcony was great, especially when it's facing the gorgeous sunrise! But, our favourite was non other than the Milky Way that we saw the minute we step out...

I stayed two nights in a Glenfiddich apartment. When checking in we were greeted by a lovely man who went through all the details necessary and spent time giving us answering questions on where to eat and what to do. When leaving the reception another man came over, introduced himself and double checked that we were happy before heading off...

We stayed at "The Bach". Check in process is quick and easy. The house is huge with 5 rooms and more than 10 beds. We love the decoration and the bedding very much. The whole house is very cozy and comfortable with great heating/cooling. The house is very well equipped and wifi is very fast too. This is a great...

A clean modern house with mountain views.one draw back was the complete lack of privacy when sitting outside for our evening meal. The property sits on a crossroads of 2 busy streets and a busy footpath runs along the sitting area side. The other side is out of bounds as it is the access to another house behind. We would...

We spent two nights at the church house which was right at the other side of the street from The Church of the Good Shepard and right at the Lake Tekapo. This house offers an awesome view on the lake! Interior is rather practical than fancy but offered everything we needed. Reception staff was very friendly. We'd absolutely recommend this...

We stayed in this delightful mini house for 2 nights. Recommend highly. A very pleasant view and can see the beautiful lake from the driveway. It is extremely comfortable and quiet. We were welcomed at reception and given good recommendations for places to eat, which we followed up. Lake Tekapo is a beautiful place to stay.

Stayed with my wife in one of their house, Lucy, in feb 2017, price was not cheap. When we first entered the house, we noted a strange unpleasant smell. We thought it could be lack of ventilation or left behind by earlier cooking etc. We opened all windows and smell eased a bit. Then we found the bin was not...

Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry you did not enjoy your stay. It sounds as though the cleaning staff may have missed a rubbish bin which would happily have remedied if we had known immediately. The oven just needed to be reset which we would also have done for you. The cottage has since had some extra...

Cindy in the holiday homes office was very helpful. The house we stayed in was looking a little jaded, but it was a last minute booking and all the best properties were taken, so we made the most of it. Great views from the bedroom windows made up for the poor quality of the property. We are returning to Lake...
