  • The location on the farm and close to Lake Tekapo are great

    The location on the farm and close to Lake Tekapo are great. It's a lovely old house, well equipped, full of character, beautiful garden, the children loved it. The bedrooms are not heated (one bedroom has a small wall-mounted heater); there are electric under-blankets and thick blankets.

    Fantastic house, and lovely garden, which the kids had a wonderful time exploring and playing in. Very well equipped house especially the kitchen. Super comfy beds. The only downside was that the upstairs rooms were very hot, but given that the temperatures were hitting an unusual 30 degrees, it was understandable!
