“Manawa is the perfect lodge for a family stay.”
We loved the space for the kids to hang out, sitting out on the declooking at the mountain, , all of the kitchen facilities. Such a beautiful home.

“Lovely place, we stayed - family of 4 boys plus grandparents and enough room to spread out (thanks to the separate lounge with the screen).”
Clean, tidy and fabulous to have the drying room - total bonus :-)- Tahlia, October 2023

“We had a wonderful stay at manawa.”
House is gorgeous complete with the best view of the mountain on a clear day. Thanks for having us!- Kate, July 2023
“Great place for a large family group to catch up, all very modern, clean and new.”
Comfy beds and heaps of games to occupy us on a rainy weekend. Unfortunately the internet didn't work while we were there. It would also be great to see the unstable path to the spa completed and also I'd prefer not having the security camera on the main deck as it felt like you didn't get any privacy.- Michael, January 2023
“Great spot , quiet and relaxing Tried to charge the EV but found the RCD kept tripping.”- Ron, January 2023
Hey Ron, thanks so much for visiting Manawa and posting review. The EV charger installation has been completed now and is available for guest use. It should have had a lock on it and been turned off at the meter, previously. Apologies if that wasn’t the case and caused frustration for you. Bachcare
“Manawa is an amazing bach, it had everything we needed and more!”
We would highly recommend it to everyone. The house itself is brand spanking new and very clean. It was quiet and private but the kids had plenty to do in and around the house. We were a group of 8 (originally planned for 12) and found plenty of space for both families and more. The house had top quality furnishings and fittings, everything was just perfect, and the owners/bachcare were every generous with everything. We did have some slow WiFi both nights so couldn't use the smartTV or WiFi but there was 4G reception at the house so didn't bother us too much. The house was definitely perfectly designed for ski trips, and the drying room with industrial dehumidifier worked a treat! The spa pool was also such a treat to have. And the mountain view, wow, just breathtaking and the house is perfectly positioned to enjoy it inside and out! Location wise the house was also very easy to find and it was easy also to drive to town. We really enjoyed our time at Manawa and hope we can book it again for another trip! Many thanks for a great stay.- Shanni, September 2022
I organised a group of 12 people to stay here while snowboarding, the place fits 12 easily and comfortably. Smart choice to use a dehumidifier in the drying room - much safer compared to other places I've been to. The kitchen/dining area is sung for 12 people but is still very comfortable. The place is warm and easy to clean as you have everything you need. Stunning views and the a spa after a long day of snowboarding is amazing! 10/10 would recommend! I will definitely be coming here again!- Jess, September 2022
“We had a lovely time at Manawa.”
There were 8 of us staying and the house was well appointed, comfortable and warm. It will be even more beautiful when the landscaping is complete and I look forward to seeing the progress.- Kim, August 2022
