Looking for a place to stay at Lake Tekapo was not easy. I couldn't get any accommodation within our budget of NZD120/night when I was looking a room for our one night stay on January 1, 2014 at Lake Tekapo. Actually there's a holiday park at Lake Tekapo, but they requested a min 5 nights stay for our period.
From tripadvisor review, I finally choose a 3 bedroom apartment at Mantra Lake Tekapo. Traveling with other family to New Zealand was an advantage, so that we could share a 3 bedroom unit.
I knew from the time of the booking that Mantra Lake Tekapo was going to be a fabulous place for us, a special place on our last night in New Zealand. But when I arrived at the place, it was more than fabulous! It was home away from home. I mean, someday I dream to have a house like this:p It was awesome!

And this was our unit, with a garage to park our cars.
|Our Kiddos were so happy at this apartment|
On the first floor, we had a living room and a fully equipped kitchen. A kitchen that I have been always dreaming of. And they also provide beautiful dinner table, cozy sofa and an artificial fireplace. It was not really a fireplace, it was actually a heater, but it succeeded giving a romantic touch to the room. Even with three kiddos around, we could still feel how romantic this place was:p

On the second floor, we had three rooms: two main bedrooms and one room for children. All of the rooms had balcony. Great!

There were a separate shower and bathtub in the bathroom. Kiddos couldn't swim at the swimming pool because it was too cold, so they were happy to take a dip in the bathtub:D
We also had a direct access to the backyard, with a table to have dinner or BBQ outside. Too bad we didn't prepare anything to have a BBQ party.
|What a lovely setting|

For this luxurious apartment (well, compared to other motels we stayed during our holiday in NZ, it was really a luxury for us:p), we paid NZD 386. So each family paid NZD 193 for our one night stay. After staying there one night, I must say that the price was really worth it.
This place is highly recommended when you're traveling with family to Lake Tekapo New Zealand.
