On a lovely section just a short walk from the lakefront sits this gorgeous little holiday home, featuring two bedrooms and packed with everything you need for your next Lake Hawea getaway. Welcome to the Owl’s Nest!

Perched perfectly in a corner spot, this charming home is surrounded by an expansive lawn just waiting for you to enjoy a summer game of backyard cricket. Once the action’s over, grill up something delicious on the BBQ and take a seat at the outdoor table under the shade of the umbrella.

For those winter getaways or chilly nights when the sun’s gone down, spark up the wood burning fireplace and get cosy in the open-plan living area. A comfy couch is just waiting for you to nestle into with a good book, and for a bit of extra seating why not head up to the loft and bring the bean bags down!

A well-equipped kitchen offers you plenty of space to whip up delicious meals on holiday, and the best part is there’s a dishwasher to take care of the washing up for you. Whilst there is no TV, unlimited internet and audio speakers are available for streaming content on your own devices at the end of your day exploring.

This two bedroom Lake Hawea accommodation comfortable sleeps up to four guests.. The downstairs bedroom features a queen bed, while the loft bedroom on the mezzanine has two singles that can be joined together to make a luxurious super-king!

Lake Hawea is a magical spot to spend both summer and winter holidays, and here at the Owl’s Nest you’re not far from the attractions this little town has to offer. Just a six-minute walk from the house you’ll find the river trail, and in 12 minutes you’ll be at the lakefront with its stunning views. You’re welcome to store bikes and other adventure equipment in the garden shed, so make sure you bring it all along.

There is a small store in Lake Hawea for topping up on supplies, or take a 15-minute drive to Wanaka where you’ll find a supermarket as well as plenty of eateries, shops, and activities. The Cardrona Alpine Resort is also only an hour away for a bit of snow fun!

For a home away from home packed with modern charm, look no further than Lake Hawea Owl’s Nest!

Special Conditions

As shown and described in the listing, there is a mezzanine bedroom at Lake Hawea Owl's Nest that is accessed via a secure ladder that has handrails. The ladder is on rollers and so can be pushed flush up against the wall when not in use. The mezzanine level is able to be closed off at the top with a gate when the ladder is in either position. An optional panel can be placed on the ladder to prevent children from climbing it. All guests should take extra care when accessing the mezzanine, and parents should closely supervise children.

Please note that the third photo shows the new ladder up to mezzanine with rails.

The two king single beds in the mezzanine bedroom can be joined together to create a super king bed. If you require the super king option, please let us know when booking so the appropriate linen can be provided.

Stayed April 2021

The Owl's Nest is a cosy and comfortable stay. Great views from the comfort of the living room, great hiking and biking close by and good local food options. We loved our relaxing few days in Lake Hawea.

Stayed March 2021

Lovely comfortable little holiday house for a couple and maybe young adult visitors. Great little pot belly log burner that will keep the place warm in winter. We used the opportunity to store and lock our bikes in the garden shed when we didn’t use them.

Stayed February 2021

Stayed November 2020

Good clean excellent dwelling ,would use this again . Not suitable for kids with that ladder system .

Thank you for your kind feedback. The owners have taken on board your thoughts on the ladder system and have recently upgraded this to be much safer and easier to use. It now features flat steps, two handrails and slides in and out on rollers, allowing the gate in the loft to close. A system that blocks off the bottom steps has also been made to prevent young children from climbing up unattended.
