About the neighbourhood
We are located in a secluded valley, adjacent to mountains, with no neighbors in site. It's very quiet and relaxing with great views of the Southern Alps.
Getting around
Normally, a car will be required to access our property. We're on a good gravel road and easy to find on G. Maps. Rental cars are available in Wanaka. No public transport in Hawea other than taxi however if time permits, we're happy to pick up and drop off in Wanaka if need be.
