“We've stayed in Twizel a few times, but Menards cottage is our new favourite place to stay. The previous stop in our trip was a large soul-less house, so the cottage was refreshingly completely opposite - compact, cosy, and bursting with character. Jason welcomed us on arrival, and we knew immediately that we'd love this place. While outside never made it above freezing, inside was toasty & very warm. I liked the inside/outside temperature display on the wall. The beds were comfy, the shower pressure was great, and the full kitchen meant we didn't have to eat out every night. There's good wifi, an array of books and dvds to keep you amused, and an impressive collection of music available too. Close enough to Twizel (around 15 min drive), but far enough out to feel like you're in the middle of nowhere - with great views in a picture perfect setting. A fantastic place to stay for the 3 of us (plus dog). Our only gripe was with mother nature not playing the game - we didn't have a night of clear skies to be able to appreciate the night sky right in the middle of an international dark sky reserve. But that just means we have a great excuse to come back later - which we definitely will be doing.”

“This Airbnb was incredible, one of the best we've stayed at. The view on to the lake was amazing (from bed). We had to do some work while there and it was the most beautiful spot to work from. Wonderful shower, great internet, warm and cosy, clean and the free breakfast was a bonus! We also did a wash which was very useful. If you walk 1 minute up the hill towards the golf course at night you will see amazing stars on a clear night!”

At Black Beech house we have the prefect setting with a cedar and stainless steel outdoor bath which comfortably fits two people so you can lie back and soak up the glorious night sky.
“Cosy, warm spot, centrally located and close to everything in Tekapo. House heated quickly even on frosty mornings, and beds were nice and comfy. Note that the WiFi doesn't work in the bedrooms, just something to keep in mind if you're travelling with family. Overall would definitely stay here again :)”
