Located at Otematata, 1 hour's drive from Oamaru through the Waitaki Valley, this home is ideal for the large family or share with friends. A common driveway on the R.H. side of the property leads to the rear with ample room for boats and cars to be parked off road.

A great stop over for the Alps2Ocean enthusiasts - if you are 1 of these please enquire re pricing as we need to formulate a special deal for you. (ie. 1 night stay)

Access the Benmore, Aviemore & Waitaki dams or the Ohau ski field is an hour away. The Aviemore boat ramp is minutes from the bach and the popular Sailor's Cutting launch site (Benmore Dam) is approx. 10 minutes away, on the way to Omarama.

The township evolved from the days of the construction of the Benmore Dam and today is a popular playground for those interested in water sports or just relaxing and enjoying the waterways for picnics and stunning scenery.

Mount Cook is approx. 1.5 hour's drive, Wanaka is about 1.5 hours and Queenstown about 2.5 hour's away.

Linen and towels are supplied. Upon departure please ensure these items are washed and hung on the line. During winter or cooler months and if your stay is a short one it may be preferable to bring your own linen / towels but not essential.

    Awesome house with great location in Otematata. Tidy and clean with plenty of space for two families to enjoy. We had a lovely relaxing stay and hope to return again.

  • This property is great when two families are staying together

    This property is great when two families are staying together.As we found out this year with the "winter weather" in the middle of summer, being couped up inside for a couple of days wasn't too hard as there is plenty of room. All facilities the house offered, well fitted our stay and the house is close to all local facilities so a wee walk around the town suits all.
