About this Holiday House

Classic South Island bach, situated a five minute walk to the shores of splendid Lake Hawea. Basic but comfortable, open plan living and kitchen area with two adjacent bedrooms, each with a queen and a single bed. Use of a BBQ, 3 bikes, and inner tubes for fun on the lake are provided free of charge. Plenty of off-road space for vehicles and boats. There are lots of activities right on your doorstep. Relax on the deck in the sun, wander down for a swim in the lake, or enjoy a meal and a beer at the local hotel. The friendly local store has all your day to day shopping needs and a restaurant upstairs. There's also superb trout fishing, mountain bike trails (many of which are very family friendly), swimming, water skiing, and plenty of space on the lakeshore to lie in the sun. It's a pleasant 15 minute drive to Wanaka, where any number of activities are available. A further hours drive over the spectacular Crown Range takes you to the bright lights of Queenstown. In winter, two major ski fields - Cardrona and Treble Cone - are a 30 minute drive away. Mt Aspiring National Park, with its hiking, wildlife, bird watching and spectacular scenery, is virtually on your doorstep. Or go for a day-trip across scenic Haast Pass to the wild West Coast. Our family has spent many wonderful summers in this house, which my father built. We hope you walk away with as many special memories as we have. We don't provide a cleaning service, so please ensure that you leave the house in a great condition for the next guests. We are a pet friendly house (with some restrictions) - a $50 fee will apply for all guests with pets. Before you arrive , make sure you contact me for the location of the keys and any other relevant details If you have any special requests or questions, please contact us.
