Askray on Rankin is a 2 bedroom apartment under a private home. It was clean, warm and with a great view. Would stay again. The office person administering the various homes rented out was friendly and efficient.

We stayed at Aotea property and it was perfect, there were 10 of us and there was plenty of room and facilities. we had a great time and the service and friendliness of the team at the holiday homes was awesome, brilliant followup and pre arrival emails were brilliant, well organised and easy key pick up. Very friendly.

My wife and I stayed in the stargazers retreat for our honeymoon. We found that although some of it was quite nice, there were a few things which dampened our experience. The website made us believe this house was somewhat private, but it was right where all the tourists could see and it was right next door to another house. The bed was supposed to be a king but felt more like a double and was very uncomfortable, and the pillows were horrible. It looked to be styled very nicely but was a weird mix of old and new styes. The oven was hard to use and you had no idea what temperature it was at. There was no PS4 and the smart tv kept crashing. They said you could see the stars while in bed but there were just two little skylights which you couldn't see through while lying down. The couch was very uncomfortable and there is no separation of the bedroom and living spaces. The flowers we got were nice and the view is amazing, and the bathroom was quite nice, but overall we felt it wasn't worth it for the price.

We booked with Lake Tekapo Holiday Homes but hadn’t realised that the place we were staying at was actually a part of someone’s home. It would appear that we had basically booked an Airbnb without actually having the choice of where we stayed. It had all of the downsides - lots of notes posted around telling us where we couldn’t access, to keep things clean and put away (or we would be charged extra) There were no replacement toilet rolls and only a quarter of a roll left to use for our 2 night stay. Keep the garden gates closed (because of rabbits) - now the gardens were lovely but Don’t pour anything on the lawn (as per the sign) but the home is in need of some TLC. The double bed was way too soft, the shower was over a “half bath” which was too small to bathe children in. There was a laundry with washer but no dryer and no clothes horse to dry clothes on, on a wet day. So overall beware - an Airbnb without any of the positives.

Lake Tekapo Holiday Homes will always be our first choice to stay in Lake Tekapo. This is our second time staying at one of Lake Tekapo Holiday Homes. We love the view, the amenities and it has a very homey feeling to it. Highly recommended. Peter & Hong
