This place is everything you would expect from a Kiwi Bach holiday home. No frills, but close to the lake and an easy walk into town.

Amazing views. Lovley quiet location. Short drive to town. Accommadated 4 adults and 2 children very comfortably for a weeks stay. Only down side is we stayed in summer and the house faces west. In the afternoon to late evening the sun streams in the lounge, dining, kitchen and upstairs bedroom making it very hot and glary. No blinds to block the heat and glare out and no way of cooling. Would suggest some blinds and perhaps some sort of cooling eg air conditioning or fans.

Dear Jenny, We have passed your feedback along to the owner regarding the blinds and cooling unit. But cooling on hot summer days is very effective as the house is cleverly designed to circulate air up through the two atriums by opening the electrically operated windows high up on the west facing glazing and by opening the upstairs bedroom and bathroom skylights per guidance in the house notes. We hope to see you upon your return to sunny Wanaka. Best Regards, Goodstays Team
