About this Holiday House

Trout House is situated on an elevated site in the Mount John subdivision and offers stunning views of Lake Tekapo, Mount John and the surrounding ranges. It's just a five minute walk to local shops and amenities. Enjoy the easy feel of the open plan kitchen dining and living with large bi-folding doors opening out to the deck that flows right across the front and along one side of the house to showcase beautiful lake views. Three generous bedrooms, one bathroom, separate toilet and a laundry make up the rest of the house. Well suited for families with a port-a-cot (you must supply your own linen for this however). Also has a pram for use as well as children's books and toys. The double bunk is a double bed with a single bunk on the top (see photos). Other Notes: Stereo unit can plug into an I-pod/MP3 player. Pellet fire with pellets provided. Table Soccer Game. Please note - there is no TV - those who wish to play DVD's for the kids must bring their own laptop or viewing device.

Kieran Best
Amazing house to stay at, warm and cosy with beautiful views. The place was clean and tidy on arrival with plenty of helpful instructions. The beds were comfy and the house stayed warm. The owner was brilliant to deal with and catered for the needs of our group whilst booking. There was more than enough space for 4 adults and 2 small children. Our 2 year old companion loved the bunk bed and the adults loved the fusball table. We would definitely stay again and recommend.

Thank you for your Trout house review - we're thrilled that everyone enjoyed the beds, the warmth and of course the fusball table! Angela
Beautiful house with an amazing view of the lake. Very clean, warm and cozy with an added bonus of a fusball table for the adults. The owners were great helping us organise and more than happy to cater for our needs. There was more than enough room for 4 adults and 2 kids, and our 2 year old companion loved the bunk bed. We would definitely recommend and stay again.

Hi Kieran, thank you so much for your lovely feedback - it was lovely to help you enjoy some much needed time away after lockdown. We'd look forward to having you back in Trout House next time you visit Tekapo. Angela
Lovely & cozy place for family. We love the Trout theme in the house decoration. It is so convenient for Star Gaze at night! Look forward to go back again :)
