  • The property was just wonderful

    The property was just wonderful. Very private and only a short stroll to the lake. The kitchen was just lovely to cook in and had absolutely everything we needed. The water pressure in the shower was a treat! My husband loved having the kayak available to use and made use of it most days. The beds were very comfortable. We have such a fantastic time and will most definitely be back!

    We had an awesome stay at Hatepe House. Great location just a street back from the lakefront. Cute house with cosy fireplace and everything you need for a relaxing weekend away. Kitchen was very well equipped. Thanks for a great stay!
