We just stayed one night, but would have loved to have stayed longer, the Bush House totally exceeded our expectations. The pictures on here do not do it justice. Clearly been done up recently, all the mod cons. The location is perfect, just across the road from the Church of the Good Shepherd and round the corner from the "CBD". Easy walking to town for restaurants etc. We were a family of five and it suited our purposes perfectly. If I had one negative thing to say it would be, no WIFI, but with all the scenery around who wants to be on the internet (it does have strong mobile coverage, so we just used mobile data). We will be back, as Arnold says...

Lovely to hear you so enjoyed your stay, look forward to your return, hopefully for longer next time. Will see what we can do about the wifi and updating the photos!
Nice house but poorly managed. Booked the place for a visit from my parents, I was so embarrassed to let them stay at the Bush House. We arrived late afternoon to find dirty dishes in the dish washer, no dish washing granules and a few drops of dish washing liquid left for hand washing. We went out and bought dish washing granules at own expense. Ice trays in freezer but no ice, not very helpful if you looking forward to nice cool drink after a long day in the car. I found long black hairs on the bed linen; torn towels and to top it all off, no hot water - only lukewarm water in kitchen and shower. I've stayed at a number of places at Lake Tekapo over the past few years, this was by far the worst experience. It's a nice house, but so poorly maintained.
Response from Owner
We are mortified to hear these comments and strive to uphold strict cleaning standards at all times. We have had the hot water issues rectified. We appreciate your feedback.
A fabulous home away from home. Wonderful spot a stones throw from the Lake edge and a 5 minute walk to the township. Modern, clean and well appointed. We have stayed twice and will be bak again for sure.
