About this Holiday House

Spectacular views of Lake Tekapo and the surrounding mountains from the living areas of this modern family home. Free Unlimited WiFi (fibre). Finished to a high specification, this 120 sqm home is double glazed, has upgraded insulation and is heated/cooled by 2 heatpumps to maximise your comfort. While enjoying the lake and mountain views, the large veranda gives protection from the sun in the height of summer as you sit outside. Lakeview Haven is located towards the top of the Lochinver sub-division thereby maximising the views, whilst providing peace from the main road. Well positioned for access to walking/biking tracks. TO SAVE YOURSELVES TIME IN YOUR SEARCH FOR ACCOMMODATION, please check the calendar on this website for availability at our property before sending through an enquiry. ONE night, or same day, bookings are NOT possible. All the rooms are well proportioned. There is a separate laundry off the front entrance hall. Particularly geared towards families with young ones. Toys/games/books suitable from a young age. Large flat lawn area for children to play on (not fenced). The area at the back adjoins a landscaped reserve, which is ideal for kite flying, ball games, bike riding etc. Slight slope down to the reserve which could suit young ones for sledging, if there is snow on the ground. Equally good in the summer months for young ones learning to balance on their bikes. For 2024 we have upsized the TV and washing machine. One of our goals is to make our home 'allergy/asthma friendly'. Pets and smoking are strictly prohibited and we use a minimal amount of smelly cleaning materials. Large driveway for off street parking. Photo's updated June 2021. Price is all inclusive - linen and cleaning. We just ask that you leave the house tidy and do the washing up before leaving. When enquiring, please advise if any of your children will use the cot. Check in time: from 3pm Check out: by 10am

It snowed right down to the ground and we got some great photos. The hot pools were sensational in the snow - it was falling so heavy. The beds were very comfy - but mostly we thought you had the most comfy yummy sofas/couches ever.... And lastly the house was lovely and clean with the most sensational kitchen and lounge views. Thank you so much K&B, Wanaka Sept 2012 Thank you so much for the week in your lovely Lakeview Haven. What a great house you have built! Our kids have been in heaven with the lovely books and toys.

Sadly, we are heading home tomorrow. Might be in touch next year. BK Feb 2012 All was fine & we enjoyed your hospitality. The house is nice & view is beautiful. Thank you. A, Auckland Well what can we say, from here it's all down hill, nothing could come near to 'Lakeview Haven'. The house had everything you needed for self catering. The weather was very good while we were there so we got lots of walking, we never used the car until it was time to leave. We have visited and toured NZ 5 times during the last 7 years and 'Lakeview Haven' is the most stunning, for both views and a beautiful house. Thanks so much for allowing us to share this 'haven'. We really don't want to leave. M&J, England Dec 2011 Thank you so much for letting us enjoy you beautiful home and view. We had glorious weather and saw Mount Cook.
