5/5 Excellent

A rustic group of cottages. Inside the cottage everything was in excellent condition. Plenty of room to move about and the bed was in a separate room. The location is possibly the best in Lake Tekapo as it was only a 300 metre walk to the Church of the Good Shepherd and only a short walk to where all the restaurants are. Definitely Recommended.

I'm so pleased I found this place. It was tucked back in a quiet location, yet very convince to walk across the bridge to the village. The cottage was nice and cozy with a large kitchen. Only issues I had was the shower handle came apart, but was still workable and the bathroom fan was a bit nosiy when the wind was blowing, minor issues. I would totally stay here again/
