Had an absolute blast staying at the yurt. The scenery around the place was absolutely breath-taking and the yurt itself was very cosy/comfy. Randall and Amanda were amazing hosts also. Couldn't have had a better time at Lake Hawea!

About the neighbourhood
Lake Hawea is about 20minutes from Wanaka, so a nice peaceful place to stay with easy driving to cafes, restaurants and shops. Our guests really enjoy the beauty and peaceful surrounds so close to a bustling town - easy to get away from it all when you have had enough. Lake Hawea is a stunning lake, with beautiful walks, longer hikes and cycling easily accessible.
Getting around
It is best to have a car to get around - no public transport in this area.
