Thanks Jenny! So happy you love Tekapo - it is a wild raw landscape of immense beauty. Just for any readers, no we don't operate an evening restaurant service. We cater to groups on multi night stays upon request and subject to our own availability. Our base business is "bed and breakfast" only. there is a range of restaurants in the village only minutes walk from the lodge. At busy periods I make an obligation free booking for the first night so there is at least an option for our new arrivals! Do so hope you got home safely. Our village is empty of visitors so many walks with the dogs ahead for us next few months! Best to you and Dirk, Stephanie

From the welcome to the departure, Stephanie looked after us very well in her and Alastair's beautiful home. The rooms were very clean and eclectically decorated with very interesting art and artefacts which we will remember for some time. It was a great location from which to visit Mt Cook and the surrounding area but we did not warm to like Tekapo as a town and the "best restaurant" was not great for non-meat eaters. Stephanie was a mine of information on he Country and the local area and the breakfast was excellent. In sum, loved the guest house; luke warm about the local area.

Many thanks Fred and Gail. Great you enjoyed your stay with us and that Mt Cook made an impression! Very much enjoyed our breakfast discussions. Staying in a personalised accommodation facility does allow for interaction with the "natives" and I love it when the conversation segues into obtuse areas....! Best, Stephanie

We arrived after a long journey from the south to a homely welcome from Stephanie and Alistair. The view from our room was over to the lake and The Good Shepherd Church and the majestic mountains. We really appreciated that Stephanie had booked a table for us on our first night so we didn't have to find something for ourselves. The room was exceptionally comfortable as was the rest of the guest accommodation. We particularly enjoyed the freedom to help ourselves to refreshments at any time. Alistair cooked awesome breakfasts which kept us going for hours. Thank you both for your wonderful hospitality.

We have just spent two lovely nights at Stephanie & Alistair’s home and it has been just fantastic. From the wonderful welcome from Stephanie, to the breakfasts cooked by Alistair, to the tips, advice and insight from both of them, this was a very special place to stay. After just the two nights we felt that Stephanie & Alistair were our friends and we were very sad to leave. Indeed, I had to drag Lorraine away as she would have stood there talking for the rest of the day! Lovely comfortable rooms, terrific artwork around the place and simply a very relaxing place to stay. Thank you Stephanie & Alistair for letting us share your home. Phil & Lorraine.

Stayed here for two nights in February as part of a tour of New Zealand South Island. This is a beautiful little oasis. Very stylish , but still comfortable and very relaxing. Stephanie is very helpful with local knowledge and also of places further a field. Nothing is too much trouble, this ticks all the boxes for location, accommodation and great hosts. Highly recommend.

Hi Gillian and Martyn - so happy you enjoyed Tekapo. Mind you the gorgeous weather did help... It was great you managed to stop for lunch at our fav spot in Waipara which I hope sets the bar for my other recommendations as you travel around... We like to make sure you experience the very best of NZ. You still have to come back though. We can't make it all too easy for you to see and do everything in one trip! Best, Stephanie
