Parkbrae Estate is so much more than a stay... it is an experience! Preferred by so many due to its unique style cottages and units (apartments), peaceful surroundings and privileged location! No doubt the spot in Tekapo! Only a stone's throw away from the stunning turquoise lake and a few steps from the Church of Good Shepherd and Collie Dog Statue, Tekapo's best known icons!! When at Parkbrae Estate, wake up to breathtaking scenery or warm up by the fire on a cold winter night... stroll through the gardens with camera in hand soaking up the morning light... sit on the balcony with a book or a glass of the finest NZ wine...wait until the stars come out in the mesmerizing night sky and make a wish... or two... Perfect for romantic getaways, family holidays, weddings, gatherings or just an excuse to treat yourself!!

It is very rare that we write a negative review but in this case there is no option. We stayed 4 nights in The Church House @ Parkbrae Estate, Lake Tekapo. New Zealand. The price was over $220 a night. The view is world class, hard to beat, sadly the standard of the

Totally overpriced for the product offered. Its no doubt in an amazing location once the tour buses and camper vans leave for the day. It is however tricky to negotiate the track from carpark area in dark -there are no external lights. Please look at providing toiletries not

Using words it's going to be impossible to do justice to how amazing the Dr's Retreat is. Prior to visiting New Zealand I had done some research on where I wanted to propose to my girlfriend. After deciding on Lake Tekapo I struggled to find accomodation that lived up to such
