Tekapo Talk...

Stargazing at Lake Tekapo and the photos of the Church of the Good Shepherd are leading New Zealand attractions for international tourists.

Owner Observations

Queenstown and Wanaka are too commercialised and we love Lake Tekapo for the family atmosphere and uncrowded ski slopes.

Hi, We are Maria and Paul, the owners of Scott Street Apartments. In 2008 we turned our back on the corporate world and built a work-from-home, property-investment lifestyle for our family.

Why 3 Scott Street?

We were attracted by the four income streams with the ability to add a fifth income through an attic renovation.


Stunning Lake Tekapo has a special energy which attracts people from all over the world, creating a rich, diverse and supportive community.


We partnered with friends to invest in the building and all four owners are now enjoying the rewards.


Work from home and enjoy the outdoors in your spare time - whatever your passion.


Lake Tekapo is a busy tourist town with a chronic shortage of accommodation for tourists and residents.

Before and After Renovation

Renovated over 2016-2018, the apartments are fully insulated, double-glazed, re-plumbed, re-wired and fire-walled. All renovation work has code of compliance and the current building warrant of fitness expires in April 2024.
