Close to Lake Tekapo, with its excellent hot pools, the new Trippo water slide, summer tubing, the night sky, the lake for swimming, boat cruising, and fishing. Walking to the top of Mt John for the best café in the world, and the best Japanese restaurant in the country! In the winter, two ski fields one (Roundhill) 30 minutes from the cottage, and the other (Mt Dobson) 40 minutes.
Cottage has all day sun, plenty of firewood to supply the large log burner. It is surrounded by the spectacular southern alps and the Mackenzie Basin. By climbing the small hill behind the cottage you can see for miles, 360 degrees - absolutely beautiful on a crystal clear day. Rare find in this stunning location.
Please read all our excellent reviews.
Farm tours offered, and able to feed the pet sheep, lambs, and hens.
Come and stay at our piece of Paradise.

Property was ideal for a family break, near to the attractions of Tekapo, but giving the added benefits, of spacious family accommodation, at a reasonable price. The farm location added another dimension to the holiday, and we all enjoyed exploring around the house, meeting the family, and seeing the sheep dogs at work, all with 360 degree views of the mountains.
The sharers quarters and cottage were true vintage properties, with lots of character and absolutely every amenity or accessory you could need! The location was great for an extended family, allowing us to enjoy the outside areas for backyard cricket and exploring. A truly wonderful place for children, complete with young lambs to encounter at this time of year. A wonderful time had by all.
