This was a gorgeous property with a fantastic view of the Lake and Mountains. We would loved to have stayed longer just for the accomodation. The hosts met us onsite and gave us a thorough run down on ammenities, local restaurants and other tips. We would highly recommend Lake Tekapo as a stop and definitely the MacKenzie Suites.
