Stunning – Can highly recommend this Lodge. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly. The two little dogs were a delight too! Our suite was very comfortable and beautifully furnished as was the homestead. The food was delicious and dinner was accompanied with a flight of local wines.
Exceeds Expectations – Unique Experience – My wife and I were lucky enough to stay at the two-bedroom suite at Te Koi, hosted by Ian and Ali. The property is tucked in a perfect location that offers stunning views and a true escape for a couple. We were greeted like family by Ali who took the time to show us around, and provide some information about the property and the surrounding area. She and Ian showed their background in world-class restauranting and hotel management through amazing breakfast and spot-on recommendations for food and activities nearby. We heeded their advice for many stops during our stay and were never disappointed. To top off our stay they offered us into their home for a glass of wine to share stories of our time there. Beautiful region of New Zealand, amazing property and wonderful people make Te Koi a must when visiting the South Island!
