Cosy self contained cottage situated on a very quiet street in the Old Albert Town of Lake Wanaka, about a 7 minute drive from the town centre. Our family home is attached to our existing cottage although you will enjoy your own privacy including your own driveway and front and back doors. There are two bikes available for you to explore this beautiful part of the world. We are just a couple of minutes walk from both the Cardrona and Clutha rivers and their fantastic walking and cycling tracks.

The space

Our cottage was originally a 1950s fisherman's cottage which we have extended our family home on to. It has quirky retro pieces teamed with New Zealand memorabilia and an eclectic mix of furniture from deco through to mid century and modern.

Other things to note

We have an incredibly friendly chocolate Labrador called Milo. She may make a raucous fuss when you arrive but wouldn't hurt a fly. We are happy for you to bring your dog as long as the dog also has their bed with them. We are fully fenced.

This is our third stay with Susan and Tim. Their lovely little cottage is a fantastic getaway - warm and welcoming every time, with the most amazing hospitality. Couldn't recommend this place more highly and will return every chance we get.

Gorgeous little cottage , very homely, comfortable and quaint. Amazing hosts, friendly and helpful. Beautiful quiet location beside the Clutha river with fantastic walks and cycling tracks and only a short drive to Wanaka. Will definitely be back again.

We really enjoyed our 2nd visit to the Little Cottage. Susan makes us feel so welcome and we really like the cozy space with the warm fire. A super relaxing stay and we look forward to returning later in the year.

This Little Cottage is a little treasure. More spacious than the pictures suggested, warm and cozy from the incredible fire, beautifully furnished with all sorts of quirky touches, and dog-friendly too - it totally exceeded our expectations. Susan and Tim were warm and welcoming on arrival, then left us to our own devices for the rest of our stay. Loved it so much we're returning in a few weeks for a ski holiday...

Wonderful place to stay in a quiet neighbourhood within a short drive to Wanaka township. Susan was a fantastic host & the cottage is set up with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We look forward to staying again soon.
