Check In
This place was just perfect for our group of two families with young children. Plenty of space to spread out and two bathrooms so no one had to wait for showers or the toilet. Lovely clean home with very warm heaters and a fireplace that was all set and ready to light. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay again.

The house is very close to public transport and supermarket. The view from the living room is so nice we can see stars right from the windows of the living room. Prue is such a nice host, who is always responsive to our messages, before and after we arrived. It's also close to a bike renting place where we rented one to cycle along the beautiful lake

Prue's place is a very nice place to stay in. It is equipped with most of the convenience appliances and near to Tekapo town. Would definitely like to stay there in our future visit to Lake Tekapo.

Lovely and comfortable home in a fantastic location. Highly recommended! Prue gave us very clear self check-in instructions and helpfully turned on the lights and heater before we arrived at night. Thanks for giving us a late check-out too! :)

Very clean and convenient place - literally in the middle of town! Love it, just slightly pricey but could be just how accommodations in lake tekapo are. Can't complain!

We live next door to D'Archiac Cottage in Tekapo and love the natural beauty of this environment....the lake, the mountains and the clear skies.
As often as we can we get out into the hills - skiing in winter, hiking in summer. The children play ice hockey all winter on the great ice rink just a couple of minutes along the road.
