Lovely house and gardens - well maintained and good outlooks. Could do with some furniture in the bedrooms aside from beds and bedside tables (ie tables for suitcases to go on in the absence of anything else etc). Great location, well maintained, good kitchen equipment. Very good for a 4 night stay.

This property was extremely comfortable and in such a wonderful location. The log fire was used whilst we stayed with plenty of wood stocked under the carport. A short walk to the lake. Dinner at Lake Hawea pub is a must as the food in the dining room was amazing. Overall an extremely good stay whilst attending a wedding.

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.

A wonderful stay in a lovely house in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
The house was well situated just 5 minutes from the pub! it head everything we needed although a couple more drawers in the bedrooms would have been nice. It was new. clean and well maintained. Hawea is beautifully quiet but Wanaka is just 15 minutes away and has all the shops and restaurants. The food everywhere we went was superb. Would definitely go back!
