A stone's throw from the shores of Lake Wanaka rests this cottage, complete with everything you need in your home away from home. Welcome to The Lakefront Gem!

Light and bright thanks to an array of windows, this charming property features open-plan living and dining that seamlessly flows out to a partially covered balcony with outstanding views.

Whatever the season, you’ll find your happy place to sit back and enjoy a glass of Central Otago Pinot Noir as you admire the sparkling deep blue water of Lake Wanaka and its mountain backdrop.

Fully refurbished in 2021, a fully equipped kitchen with modern appliances is on hand to self-cater your stay and be sure to make use of the available BBQ to grill up a feast for the whole family. Whether you choose to share a meal indoors or dine alfresco on the balcony, you’ll be delighted to find a dishwasher to make clean-up a breeze.

On your mid-year getaway, the open fire will keep you toasty warm, all while offering that cosy alpine ambience while you snuggle up with a cuppa and a book, or your favourite show on the TV connected to Freeview. Complimentary WIFI is also available to ensure you can stay connected throughout your stay.

Three bedrooms, with a range of bedding configurations, sleeping up to five guests here at The Lakefront Gem, meaning there is plenty of room for everyone to stretch out and find their own space. A bathroom with a soaking tub and separate toilet to provide added convenience for your stay.

The Hidden Gem is in an ideal location to offer privacy and tranquillity, yet all the convenience of being only a short 4-minute drive, or 12-minute walk, from central Wanaka and the bustling lakefront. Here you’ll find a plethora of shops, eateries, and conveniences, as well as a range of local activity providers.

A relaxing Wanaka getaway awaits, here at The Hidden Gem!

This was such an amazing property - thank you so much for sharing your holiday home. Your thoughtfulness was so greatly appreciated - the heaters had been turned on before we arrived so we were welcomed into a cosy home, and the fire was set, ready to be lit. The house itself was beautiful, and that view!!!! We did not want to leave and will definitely be back. Thanks again. Jan, Mark and Jenny

The Lakefront Gem was the perfect family getaway. Close enough for the fam to walk into town for dinner and shopping . Lovely cozy fire and well appointed kitchen. The driveway is a bit steep and bumpy, would recommend four wheel drive in winter in case of ice! If you’re staying during school hols we recommend booking dinner as all the restaurants filled up really quickly. Overall a great stay, thanks !

A lovely, cosy, tidy holiday home, within walking distance to town and That Wanaka Tree. We really enjoyed our holiday there. Great views from the deck of the lake.
