We loved our three night stay here. The lake view is perhaps even more extensive than the website indicates - and I was fascinated being able to watch sunrise on the mountains across the lake while having breakfast. It was really beautiful - and so peaceful. The cottage was spotlessly clean; our hostess friendly and helpful - and the little extras of muffins, sweets and fresh flowers added a very special touch.

This is a roomy and well positioned Cottage and is highly recommended if you want to avoid the high rentals in Wanaka. Yet Wanaka is only 10 minutes away. Gill is a very welcoming host and we found the Lake Hawea community has a more welcoming feel than Wanaka which is more tourist oriented. The only negative is that Lake Hawea can be very windy at times.

Only shortfall to us is bed a bit too soft. Also fridge has no freezer but Gill is very willing to keep for you in her freezer.
Hope to come back again and stay longer.

A lovely, homely cottage - we had a lovely stay with our two toddlers. Child friendly with even children's puzzles and books available. Very comfortable beds and electric blankets for all. Even great fishing in the lake! Would reccomend.
