  • A gorgeous property, perfect for our family

    A gorgeous property, perfect for our family. The paddock of sheep next door kept the kids very entertained, and close to Tekapo, but outside of the tourist bustle. Lovely to walk the paddocks and view the countryside, a wonderful holiday for us all. The linen and bedding was exceptional. Thanks guys, will definitely be back in the winter.
