    “Dirty Laundry from previous renter not collected.”

    Hard rain came through dripping down vertical posts beside slider and pooled on floor. Couch was so uncomfortable. Heatpump required. Would not stay again.

The property

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!

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.

Please note a bond may be charged at certain times of the year. One of our team members will contact you if this is required for your booking.
