A beautiful spot in stunning Lake Hawea, just a short walk to the lakeside walking path. Spacious and spotlessly clean, and all communication was easy and clear. Great facilities, lovely warm fire. A fab holiday home.

It's great to hear you enjoyed your time at this lovely home, Katherine. Hawea is a beautiful spot, and offers a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of Wanaka. We can't wait to assist you in finding further accommodation in either Queenstown or Wanaka again soon. Kind Regards, Caitlin-Goodstays.

This was a great property with a nice garden, an open fire, a barbecue, a five minute walk to the lake and a fifteen minute drive to Central Wanaka. Not at all touristy but well connected by car to anything you'd like to do. Plenty of space to relax. We made the right choice in staying here.

Our 3 nights at Goodstays Lake Hawea was the highlight of our South Island trip. In no small part due to the wonderful accommodation and service provided by Goodstays Wanaka.

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!

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.
