This holiday house is a cosy and child friendly. The location offers amazing views of lake Ohau, Mt Sefton, Ben Ohau, and is only 20 minutes away from the Ohau ski field. If you don't ski then salmon or trout can be fished for in the rivers and lakes. In summer you can enjoy water skiing and swimming, especially in Lake Middleton. At the back of the house is a space for the kids to enjoy while the adults have a drink by the fire or on the deck. There are many fantastic walking and mountain bike tracks close by. There is the Ohau lodge if you feel like a meal out. Clay Cliffs near Omarama are amazing. Twizel offers good coffee and many lunch or dining options as well as a indoor skate rink. Mount Cook and beautiful Lake Tasman are well worth a visit, as is the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve basin for awe-inspired stargazing, 1 of only 8 in the world! The Alps 2 Ocean (A2O) cycle trail passes very close to the property.

Please note that the rates do not include linen and cleaning. We expect you to bring your own sheets and towels and clean when you leave the house.

    Great view of the lake although it was very windy and looked like the ocean when we were there. Outdoor furniture would be great to have and be able to sit outside to look at the view in comfort.. It would be great if district council cleaned up the surrounds of Lake Middleton to allow people to picnic and boat easily . A gorgeous place but not many places to sit and enjoy.. Maybe the locals could approach the council.

  • Great bach! Loved our stay

    Great bach! Loved our stay. So warm and relaxing while it was wild winter outside (and great skiing up on the mtn). Amazing views and so quiet! Only thing that would make it better would be the option of having a cleaner so we could relax a little more on our last morning... but being in Ohau that isn't an option, and maybe Ohau is all the better for it!

    This holiday home was well presented, superb quiet location with an unobstructed view of the whole length of Lake Ohau and the mountains beyond. The home was well appointed and very comfortable. having the Ohau Lodge just up the road for a meal out one night was a plus. We have already recommended this place to our friends and are intending to be back ourselves.
