Our family stayed at the “Garden Cottage” on our annual ski trip! The cottage is every bit as good as it looks in photos-if not better! Set quite literally a stone’s throw from one of New Zealand’s most iconic and most beautiful churches and on the banks of Lake Tekapo-you could not want for a more perfect and prominent location. The blue of Lake Tekapo is stunning-the most pure azure blue you can imagine and this is what you can see from almost every window as you stay in this quaint cottage. The cottage itself is home from home-beautifully decorated –in an almost olde worlde English way. And everything you could want for inside-right down to every piece of kitchen equipment imaginable.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Parkbrae Estate is so much more than a stay... it is an experience! Preferred by so many due to its unique style cottages and units (apartments), peaceful surroundings and privileged location! No doubt the spot in Tekapo! Only a stone's throw away from the stunning turquoise lake and a few steps from the Church of Good Shepherd and Collie Dog Statue, Tekapo's best known icons!! When at Parkbrae Estate, wake up to breathtaking scenery or warm up by the fire on a cold winter night... stroll through the gardens with camera in hand soaking up the morning light... sit on the balcony with a book or a glass of the finest NZ wine...wait until the stars come out in the mesmerizing night sky and make a wish... or two... Perfect for romantic getaways, family holidays, weddings, gatherings or just an excuse to treat yourself!! ... more less
