We love this little crib by the Lake Hawea. It’s location right on the esplanade makes it very special. It’s a comfortable step back in time with an updated bathroom and kitchen. Come here to leave the busy world behind. So many easy access walks right from your front door. Made our level 3 and 4 lockdown a piece of cake.

We loved this house - thought it was going to be a small crib but it's actually a good-sized 3 b/r house - very comfortable (esp. the old rocking/reclining chair). Well equipped and terrific views. And always relaxing to be in Hawea and away from the bustle of Wanaka. Good communication from owner and house manager.

We enjoyed our stay at Brightwater, a clean comfortable house. Good beds, good carpets, shower and facilities. Good view of the lake and mountains. Plan to stay again.
Response from Owner
