Designed by Award winning architect, David McBride, this luxury cabin is so close to Lake Tekapo yet very sheltered in amongst established trees. Positioned to capture all day sun and with both a wood fireplace and a heat pump (Air conditioning), it is the perfect place for all seasons.

Sunny, sheltered outdoor space with gas Weber BBQ.

Full 'chefs' kitchen complete with European appliances and quality cookware. A selection of teas and coffee including Nespresso coffee machine

*Unlimited WIFI. *NETFLIX for movie watching. *NAIM Muso wireless music system (Bluetooth, USB etc. capable)

Lake Tekapo is a great base for a day trip to Mt Cook or a day hiring bikes, packing a picnic lunch and exploring the magnificent Alps to Ocean cycle trail.

Mt John is a must see. Lonely Planet travel guide says 'quite possibly one of the planet's best locations for a cafe'. A beautiful 1 hour walk up the hill (or you can drive).

Then there is stargazing in our special Dark sky reserve!

Sorry - not suitable for children. No pets. No smoking.

  • Perfectly located for everything you might want to do around Tekapo but...

    Perfectly located for everything you might want to do around Tekapo but very quiet and private too. Amazingly well-appointed with high quality kitchenware and gadgets. A useful cabin guide is provided which is great as otherwise some of the kitchen equipment would have challenged me! Very warm. Very clean. Small but perfectly formed. I would certainly stay here again and would love to visit in winter. Thanks Julie

  • Beautiful, warm, comfortable cabin

    Beautiful, warm, comfortable cabin. We were lucky enough to visit when there was a good blanket of snow and it was gorgeous. Looking forward to the next time we can stay here

  • The cabin is fantastic! It not only looks great but every detail...

    The cabin is fantastic! It not only looks great but every detail has been so well thought out, from the lighting & the rugs for stargazing, to the log fire and sheepskins on the floor so you don't get cold feet getting out of bed :) We loved it. It is small but has all the room you need. The outside bath is brilliant too. Definitely stay here if you have the chance, we didn't want to leave!

  • This was a lovely spot but in my personal opinion not what...

    This was a lovely spot but in my personal opinion not what it was advertised as. The cabin was clean and had all amenities. No views unless you leave. The bath only fits one person and there are two single lounge chairs. Not very romantic at all. Too much focus on up market fixtures and not enough done to make sure it is somewhere to snuggle and be cosy. I have stayed in nicer places that charged less so my main gripe is that it was not worth the price. Great location to access town and lake.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Many people have loved their stay at our cabin, so I am sad that your expectations were not met. The photos and descriptions on the Bookabach listing say that the views from the cabin are looking out to trees and that the view of/and access to the Lake is from the driveway entrance. Regarding the outdoor, stargazing bath. It is not wide enough for 2 people to fit side by side. There is room for 2 adults to enjoy a bath sitting/lying at opposite ends ie. facing each other.
