Unique, beautifully crafted, Tuscan inspired straw bale home at Lake Hawea. A warm inviting home with lake and mountain views that will take your breath away. Lake Hawea is just off the Wanaka - Haast Highway and boasts a General Store, fabulous Cafe, 2 restaurants and Pub - all within 2 minutes of home, and it is only a 10 minute drive into beautiful Wanaka.
Close to many fantastic hiking and bike trails. Rivers and lake for fishing. Three ski fields within a 45 minute drive.
Our house is a 2 minute walk to the lake and you can walk or cycle in either direction from there along the Gladstone Track .
A light breakfast of cereal, toast and home made jams with tea or coffee is available if required and of course you can make a hot drink at anytime.
In winter, the house is toasty warm with 2 fire places and central heating. There is an electric blanket on the bed and lovely quilts to snuggle under.
Our guests are invited to join us in our main living room with a roaring fire on a cold night, or if they just want to chill with their laptop or a book, there is a very cozy nook downstairs, in front of the gas fire.

We will be here to welcome you on your arrival and to 'show you the ropes.' We have plenty of information to share about the local area to help make the most of your stay.
We recently moved to Lake Hawea so that we can enjoy the great outdoors. We love hiking and cycling the local tracks and trails and flicking a fishing rod into the rivers or lake, and of course a little skiing in winter.
We have become involved in some of the conservation efforts in our area as we want the things we find magical to be here for much longer.
We love our new home, which is a little "out of the ordinary" and are currently passionately developing the garden.
For our guests, we hope that our house is a Home away from home, warm and welcoming. We like our time to ourselves, but equally we enjoy meeting new people and sharing experiences over a meal, a coffee or a wine.
We are creative people, always full of new ideas and plans.
