“We loved staying at Jason and Amy's cottage. It's in a beautiful location with fantastic views all around. It's in a remote area so is really quiet and peaceful! You get a great view of the stars on a clear night! The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Jason and Amy are great hosts - really friendly and helpful giving great suggestions of places to go.”
This is a very special new Home with the most stunning skylights in the lounge and bedroom. Watch the stars at night and spot the shooting stars and satellites. A deep Luxury cedar and stainless steel outdoor bath set in a private enclosed area on deck is the most wonderful star gazing experience. Comfortable leather furniture allows you to sit back and enjoy the wonderful views to the mountains and tussocks. This home has a log burner as well as a heatpump which makes for a very cosy stay.
“Beautiful place to stay- I would recommend Simon’s place if you’re visiting lake Tekapo! Comfortable with what you need for a relaxing night. Seems to be very well thought out too, if you have any needs concerning mobility and access.”
Welcome to Glacier Country! Nestled in the heart of the Tai Poutini Westland National Park and only a 7-minute drive from the Franz Josef township, our brand new little cabin in the paddocks offers stunning views of the Southern Alps and ample privacy in a rural setting. Relax after a fun day of hiking and sightseeing while enjoying our spectacular West Coast sunsets, listening to the native birds, stargazing on the deck or simply being lulled by the rain.
“This place is a true gem. Drove in on a rainy evening to the most inviting little cabin. The whole place is so thoughtfully designed. The bed was comfortable, the shower was hot with great pressure, WiFi worked perfectly, and so on. They provided a lovely continental breakfast. It wasn’t the perfect night for stargazing, but the stars were still magnificent! I couldn’t believe how vibrant they were even with such a bright moon. Places like this are the reason why I love Airbnb. The hosts are excellent, and have put a lot of thought into making your stay comfortable. I wish I had the blueprints, so I could build this cabin for myself! 10/10!”
