Cosy and spacious retreat nestled in a quiet and friendly neighbourhood. Five minutes walk to the lake, views of the surrounding hills - snowcapped in winter. New build, equipped with both woodburner and heat pump, clean and comfortable living spaces and modern kitchen. A short drive from Wanaka and ski fields, fantastic walks and the river. Just an hour's drive from Queenstown airport. Easy access to the Haast Pass and West Coast. Away from it all but handy to it all. You will love it, we do!

The space
We have invested our hearts and souls into this very special place. It was built by my husband Richard (with a little help from me :D) over 9 months in 2018. A beautiful house was birthed from a wonderful family time away from our home base in the Coromandel. We hope you love, enjoy and respect it as much as we do :)

Where you’ll be

Lake Hawea, Otago, New Zealand

Lake Hawea is a haven away from the tourist hustle and bustle of Wanaka. A place to relax and enjoy some time out after a busy day on the water or the slopes. Whatever the season it is a true HQ for downtime! BUT, if you are after a bit of night life or a meal out, Wanaka is just a stone's throw away - or there are a couple of local eateries just down the road.
