“relaxed weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2012

This is a very comfortable b+b just 5 minutes walk from the centre of tekapo.
The hosts were very friendly and helpful.
Cosy and heated bathroom floors are away a bonus.
The dinning room has amazing views of the lake.

awesome relaxed feel.

Lovely location a little way off the main road through Lake Tekapo village. Spacious room and small patio from which we had the most amazing view of the stars. Shower had a radio in it!! Plentiful breakfast and very welcoming owner.

Located on the edge of Tekapo, but easy walking to shops and restaurants. Great views from the garden, and a cosy room/bathroom. The hosts were really enthusiastic and helpful, making this one of our best overnights on South Island.

We rented Tekapo Escape, the completely self enclosed house which is just next door to Tekapo Escape and run by the same people. Making the booking and the whole process was very easy. Steve and Jenny were friendly and helpful when we arrived. Although we were next door to Tekapo Escape, the house felt very private.

Tekapo Escape has three bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. The house was spotless when we arrived. There is a washer, a well supplied kitchen, a dining area and a lounge, each with great views of the lake. There is also a patio with a deck. There is SKY in the lounge and in the bedrooms as well. The cupboard in the lounge has games and there are books there as well.

The living areas are heated both with a heat pump and a gas stove. The bedrooms are down a hall and have small heaters since the heat pump does not reach that far.

We were really pleased with our stay at Tekapo Escape and certainly recommend it.

A most enjoyable stay. Steve and Jenny friendly and helpfull. The lake and surrounding views stunning although the "village" a little basic. Night trip to the observatory a must!
