Recent reviews

Very good 8.2 From 19 reviews

Very good 8.0
Nomads Rest Lake View Lodge is one of many vacation rental homes in the Tekapo area. It is kind of like a "tiny house" but very comfortable and spacious for a couple or small family. There are some nice features like patio furniture and lots of natural light. It is also located close enough to the town center to walk (about a 10-15 minute walk). The cons were: no washer/dryer, confusing heating system that was not explained anywhere, construction next door, broken oven, broken sliding glass door.

Poor 2.0
Stay away - part of construction site, floppy bed
Our experience started bad with the managing office - telling us "make sure if you eat in - wash the dishes and clean up". We could not find the property as it was part of a construction site. No soap for shower, shampoo and rough towels. The bed was old and sunken in. The manager agreed to move us. This property was ok - basically a room under a house. At 1 am we returned from Star Gazing and the hot water did not work. We dropped off keys at the office - Book Tekapo and requested the manager call. He has not. We called and requested a call back but no. Disgraceful customer service
