What Our Guests Say:

This home is truly a world-class destination. It is worth every penny. The views were panoramic and always changing. The architecture, layout, furnishings-down to the last spoon…was of the highest quality. Sally was a kind and gracious host. If you want a location near Wanaka or even Queenstown with spectacular views, plenty of room, and luxury details you’d find in Architectural Digest, this is the vacation spot for you.

This home, location, location, location – great amenity, perfect entertaining home surrounded by some of the most beautiful locations on the planet!! Our 2 families (4 adults 5 kids) fit perfectly but could easily stand another family Could not recommend highly enough – thank you

A fantastic location and incredibly well designed house to relax in solitude, enjoy the scenery or chat with friends in front of the fire. I will be back. Thanks Sally.

This amazing house took our breathe away. The view was beyond description and the privacy and seclusion was a wonderful place for a get away with a group of old friends. We just loved the magnificent living areas and stylish kitchen and the house easily housed our group of eight.

We arrived to an impressive home with spectacular views. The property exceeded our expectations and we were very impressed with the craftsmanship and impressive features of the home.

Our stay at Lake Hawea View has been the highlight of our trip to NZ. The craftmanship, artistry & quality of your home was a delightful. The thoughtfulness of luxury of every detail wowed us! We drove up Haast Pass to the Tasman Sea, loved the Blue Pools, waterfalls & beaches. Too bad we missed the penguins

Thank you so much for your hospitality.

Thank you for a spectacular stay in Lake Hawea. What a fabulous conclusion to our NZ holiday. The house is amazing, such incredible craftsmanship. What a pleasurable stay it has been. The view is simply magical, unsurpassed. We would love to come back one day & experience the house & views in summer too.

Hard to imagine a better place to recharge the mind, body and spirit. Don’t miss the starry sky at night – pure magic

GOSH! Our hearts are full!

This home was built with love down to every last detail & you can feel it. We had a blast here. Thank you so much (Sally & family) for sharing this incredible place.

OH WOW! What an incredible winter getaway. This is the most amazing house I have ever seen. It looked amazing in the pictures and I can’t believe it was even more incredible in real life. What an experience! There are no words to describe the view. It’s simply majestic. We enjoyed everything so much. Morning espresso by the fire, snowboarding at Cardrona and walking trails in the afternoon. Kicking back with a whiskey before watching stars and witnessing the most amazing shooting star I’ve ever seen, from the comfort of the alpine hot tub. Thank you for giving us the chance to stay at the most impressive holiday house ever.

Not many places have the power to leave you in absolute awe and almost speechless but this place definitely did just that! Everything about the house was beyond expectation. From the sheer size of it, to the stunning architecture blended perfectly with natural elements that puts you at ease as soon as you come through the doors, and the view! My, my, my that view! Could it be any more perfect? This place played an immense role to and in our successful wedding weekend and we’ve so grateful to you guys for providing an amazing house for it! We’ll definitely be telling all our friends about this place and will come back one day to relive the magic! Nga mihi mi kia koutou
