It's all in the name! Relax and unwind in this perfect little spot in Te Anau, just a Hop, Skip and Jump to the Lake!

This cute 2-bedroom bach is on a fully fenced section framed by tall leafy trees and tucked down a driveway that leads directly to the shining lake. With plenty of space to kick the ball around, park the boat and play outdoors, this is the ideal choice for an outdoorsy couple or small family.

Hop, Skip and Jump to the Lake charmingly mixes quaint country style with contemporary conveniences, including Wi-Fi, mobile cell coverage and heat pump. Linen is also included in the rates for a fuss-free stay - ideal for those travelling their way through our South Island.

Te Anau is the dream destination for adventure-lovers, with beautiful wild landscapes and plenty to see and do. After a day out on the lake or hiking the Fiordlands, relax in comfort on the squishy leather sofa in front of the old-school brick fireplace.

In warmer months, fire up the BBQ for a classic Kiwi dinner on the private patio, followed by a lakeside stroll in the evening sun. Bliss!

Hop, Skip and Jump to the Lake is also walking distance to the playground and Te Anau's cafes and restaurants.

Guest reviews for Hop, Skip and Jump to the Lake

We encourage reviews. Our review policy.
Stayed June 2022

Lovely little house to stay at and just across the road from the lake, warm with the fire and very comfortable beds. Would definitively stay again.

Stayed March 2022

Great property. Loved the style of home. Gorgeous section with established trees and it just felt secluded and private but handy to everything. Shops only 5 minute walk, if that. House was warm, comfortable, well equipped. The outdoor area was great, as was the carport. Comfortable furniture in the house and a lot of thought has gone into everything to make this a comfortable stay. Really enjoyed our time here.

Stayed February 2022

This is a charming, comfortable welcoming bach, minutes walk from the centre of Te Anau and the tour boat departure wharves yet quiet and private. Everything you need for a comfortable stay is provided. Would and hope to return in the winter to enjoy the fire place and covered outside dining area. .A tastefully presented bach with all the comforts of home. Many thanks.

Stayed August 2021

Great location and very clean, average bach, shower was poor with little pressure but water was hot, there were rats or a possum in the roof, the heat pump was not great, getting to woodpile meant walking through black mould. probaby over-priced and there will be better value places out there.

Stayed January 2021

A very tidy, stylish and clean holiday home. Great location and a much loved feel about it.

Stayed January 2021

Great location right opposite the lake front but back from the road so very peaceful. Walking distance to information centres and shops/supermarket. Plenty to do in the area e.g. walks, biking, swimming in the lake, visiting the bird sanctuary and glow worm caves. House was well equipped and very comfortable.

Stayed December 2020

Lovely property close to boat ramp and town with space for the boat. The coveted outdoor dining area was ideal for all weather. Thank you

Stayed March 2020

Highly recommended. Furnished to a high standard with great facilities. Lovely location close to the lake and town, yet very private.

Stayed January 2020

Charming cottage, fantastic location, very clean and convenient.

Stayed December 2019

Cute and quaint self contained house. Perfect for two couples or romantic get away. Location was central to town and lake and for day trips exploring the Fiordlands. Felt cozy and comfortable.

Stayed October 2019

The location was excellent. Jucy Cruze bus pick 2 doors down, Kepler Water Taxi 3 minutes towards town, town 5 minutes away. Quiet. It was nice to have a washing machine and lots of space to spread out. Having our own kitchen was also nice for eating in each meal. Highly recommend. Access to house required locating a phone box to call manager, if you don’t have cell service you’ll need the spark phone boxes at the roundabout.
