awesome choice in Lake Tekapo
We absolutely loved this little house! We could see Lake Tekapo from the front porch and we grilled out and had dinner outside there one night. The place is super comfy clean and perfectly appointed with everything you need for a relaxing vacation. A short walk or drive into town brought you to shops a grocery and restaurants. The location was great and quiet and safe. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

They did not have wash cloths to use. They asked us if we wanted shampoo, it was not at the room. The location did not have the address labeled, so we had to figure it out. They are adding onto the house now, which is under current construction, so we had to walk around the house to get information on picking up the key.

Nomads Rest Lake View Lodge is one of many vacation rental homes in the Tekapo area. It is kind of like a "tiny house" but very comfortable and spacious for a couple or small family. There are some nice features like patio furniture and lots of natural light. It is also located close enough to the town center to walk (about a 10-15 minute walk). The cons were: no washer/dryer, confusing heating system that was not explained anywhere, construction next door, broken oven, broken sliding glass door.

Stay away - part of construction site, floppy bed
Our experience started bad with the managing office - telling us "make sure if you eat in - wash the dishes and clean up". We could not find the property as it was part of a construction site. No soap for shower, shampoo and rough towels. The bed was old and sunken in. The manager agreed to move us. This property was ok - basically a room under a house. At 1 am we returned from Star Gazing and the hot water did not work. We dropped off keys at the office - Book Tekapo and requested the manager call. He has not. We called and requested a call back but no. Disgraceful customer service
