Positioned just moments from the Clutha River, and an 8 minute drive from Wanaka town centre, Southern Lakes Sweetie is a 3 bedroom Albert Town bach with WiFi.

Set just over the road from a lovely reserve leading to the river and walking track into Wanaka, this traditional Albert Town bach includes cosy open plan living - hunker down by the fire for toasty winter escapes, or enjoy the spacious section for sunny al fresco living! All the basics are on hand for a fuss free Southern Lakes getaway.

Bedroom 1 at this Albert Town accommodation is fitted with a queen bed, bedroom 2 has a single bed, and bedroom 3 includes a single bunk set - ideal for 4 adults plus 2 children! There is a full sized single divan bed in the lounge area when required, and the Port-A-Cot is a welcome addition for families with small children.

This is a great wee base from which to explore everything on offer in the Southern Lakes region - wander to the river for strolls and bike rides along the waters edge, enjoy the recreation reserve and obstacle course across the road, or take a short drive into Wanaka. Plus, Lake Hawea is a 10 minute drive away, or visit Arrowtown and Queenstown within an hour.

Simply kick back and relax, or set out on adveture! Ski fields, hiking, cycle trails, and many more exciting activities in the area can all be enjoyed a short drive away...

Lovely character old school bach. Lots of heaters, heat pump and open fire so is nice and warm. Clean and tidy. Unfortunately the bunk beds are wire wove bases so possibly not suitable for tall adults. My adult son ended up sleeping on the couch. We enjoyed our stay.

We really enjoyed our stay in this wonderfully cute house. Was really close to bike tracks which we liked and in a quiet part of town.

Great wee batch :-)

A great little holiday home. Fabulous location. If you want easy care and space to just relax, this is ideal as it’s not fancy but comfortable and welcoming.

Wonderful traditional Bach. Perfect place to chill out and great location by river walk.

Stayed July 2019

This is a perfect location and a tidy old school bach that will suit most families just perfectly for a quick Wanaka getaway right next to bike paths and an easy skip up to the ski fields

A lovely traditional Bach. Basic in terms of bedrooms and kitchen facilities but all we needed for an enjoyable holiday in Wanaka. Clean and well maintained. Great property manager. Only limitation was how hot the house got in heat of day.
