OUR STORY

Sharing the magic of Lake Tekapo life

A Family’s Vision

Isolation Bay is the dream of Steve and Amanda and their family, to share the magic of Lake Tekapo life with travelers from around the world. 

Amanda was born and raised in the Mackenzie Country, where her family farms Merino sheep on neighbouring Balmoral Station.

She and Steve took inspiration for Isolation Bay from Tekapo’s famous snow-capped mountains, tussock grasslands, and stunning turquoise lake. With the help of their kids, they even carried stones from the Tekapo River to create Isolation Bay’s dramatic fireplace.

Isolation Bay's story begins with Steve and Amanda and their children, who built the house together.

A Dream Realised

Together, they created a property like no other, where the grand spaces of the house flow naturally into the breathtaking spaces outside.

Isolation Bay offers complete privacy, with no neighbours or other buildings nearby. Guests can fully immerse themselves in the wild beauty of the Lake Tekapo landscape.

Steve and Amanda and their family invite you to enjoy this unique and unforgettable experience on the stunning Lake Tekapo shore.
