  • We were so glad we chose Hawea when we saw the crowds...

    We were so glad we chose Hawea when we saw the crowds in Wanaka. The cottage is beautifully quiet with a view to mountains and lake from a comfortable verandah. Inside was spotless with everything one could possibly need. We did find the amount of equipment etc slightly overwhelming and would have preferred more open space particularly on the dining table etc. Each room is amazingly organised to maximise space and we appreciated the thoughtfulness of the owners in ensuring space for renters.

  • We all just loved sitting on the deck looking over the lake

    We all just loved sitting on the deck looking over the lake. It was so beautiful and peaceful. The house had all we needed for our stay including the use of bikes & kayaks and was close to Wanaka for shops, cinema etc. We would love to visit again.
