This place is gorgeous! We stayed at the Henkel Hut for the first 2 days of our New Zealand trip. The view is unreal and they have everything you might need--cooking tools, local menus, etc. Fantastic hospitality!

we stayed here at December for two nights at unit 3. Walter was so wonderful and provide a lot of information including the weather alert for my hiking plans. The unit, the location and the price so good and would definitely come back in the future. Thanks again to have good memory at lake tekapo.

We booked the Henkel Hut for the last two nights of our trip to New Zealand and could not have picked a more breathtakingly beautiful location. This well appointed "hut" contained a modern kitchenette and a living room sofa situated perfectly to watch the sunset over the lake and mountains. Walter's wealth of information on all the local opportunities and...

I stayed last week for one night at the Chalet. Walter was such a wonderful host from the time I arrived. He offered to help me with the luggage, showed me around the place and gave me tips for hikes. Unit 1 was lovely with a huge bedroom, kitchen with fridge/stove/microwave/utensils and the bathroom was super clean. The water was...

If you are considering visiting Lake Tekapo, please look no further than The Chalet for your accommodation. Reasonably priced and well-located (near to town, yet quiet enough for privacy) with breathtaking views, Walter, Zita and team will offer you an unforgettable experience, with impeccable attention to detail. Most reviewers have said it all, but just to prove a point, I...

I stayed two nights at The Chalet and would gladly have extended my stay if my itinerary allowed. Walter and Zita were wonderful, gracious hosts and provided so much information about the local area, weather alerts for my hiking plans and recommendations on regional highlights. Their location is perfect ~ on a quiet road but really just a brief walk...

We arrived to a friendly welcome from Walter, and easy parking for our car. We loved The Chalet. It's in a peaceful location on the lake shore, but it's still only a few minutes walk to the shops and restaurants over the footbridge built in 2015. We stayed in Unit 2, which has two bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen, and a...

The feeling of waking up and drawing the curtains to a bright sunny day over Lake Tekapo - absolute bliss! The Chalet is THE place to stay when visiting Lake Tekapo. It is walking distance to the lakefront and the Church of the Good Shephard, and yet is quiet with minimal traffic coming through the road. The town centre (restaurants...

We spent 3 nights at the Chalet in one of the Garden Studios and absolutely loved our stay! We were initially disappointed not to be able to get a Lake view room but we needn't have worried; we had free access to the garden and from there fantastic views of the lake and the mountains. Our reception was very warm,...
