The First Built Accommodation               in Tekapo
     A house with a beautiful story

Lake Tekapo is famous for its dark night sky which is almost completely free from light pollution. In fact, the area is so excellent for star gazing that it was named the world’ largest International Dark Sky Reserve. It is also one of the best places in the world for star-gazing.


Located at the gorgeous lakefront, the old and elegant house- Tekapo 1929 has been situated there as time moved on. It was first built in 1928 and completed in 1929. During the last nine decades, the house has witnessed the town’s changes through ages.  It always remains its grace in the flood of time because a beautiful love story had brought the original house building into a start......
