My husband and I stayed at the Henkel Hut for 2 nights. The views of Lake Tekapo from the Hut were amazing. The big green grass patch just in front of the Hut, followed by the vast expanse of sapphire blue water in Lake Tekapo and then the snow-capped mountains in the distance made for a truly idyllic experience. The...

Swiss German Zita was a lovely host. We had a bottom apartment style room that looked right out on the lake. There was a glass sliding door that opened up to a Terrace that overlooks the lake. You can sit there at the table and chairs and enjoy the view! Also, there's a full kitchen and free laundry down the...

It was such a treat to stay in this lovely chalet. Great hosts, lovely accommodation in unit 1 for three nights - very quiet, private, clean, and so warm and cosy. Spacious unit with everything we needed. It was the perfect place for us to unwind and relax - we loved sitting inside or outside enjoying the views of lake...

Walter was not only the most friendly host we ever met, he was also the most helpful. Beautiful chalet recently refurnished, just steps away from shops and the church. Being dazzled by the Milky Way on the grass of the private garden was a highlight of our trip. Tekapo is a special place, and The Chalet is the place to...

I stayed in Unit 6 over the Christmas time of 2013 for 3 nights. This is the most beautiful place to stay and I am so glad to find and stay here. I checked in on Christmas Eve. Walter anticipated my concern about restaurants being closed on Christmas Day and he readily shared which restaurant is opened on Christmas day....

We stayed in Unit 4 on ground floor where we could park right outside our door. Comfortable king bed, fully equipped kitchen, and a nice spacious heated bathroom although the shower stall had a navy curtain and was really dark inside. Free laundry was a huge bonus after traveling for a few days - someone had also so kindly folded...

Paul Carberry at New Zealand in Depth was asked to book us a self-catering unit in Tekapo where we could relax as part of our 54 day discovery of New Zealand. Although we wanted to visit St. Johns Observatory we also wanted to recharge the batteries. Well the Chalet was the answer, what can I say, sensational, mind-blowing, on the...
