The space

A cosy, sunny, private garden cottage, three minutes drive from town and close to the lake. Set in 1-hectare grounds of lawn, fruit trees and garden. Very quiet with views of the mountains and lake. 2 minute walk to the lakeside beach, cycle and walking tracks, the Lake outlet and Sticky Forest for mountain bikers. The living/dining areas look out on the sunny terrace and private garden with a hot tub. Separate laundry and garage.

The living/dining/kitchen area has a Log burner/firebox and tons of firewood. There are Ikea furnishings, Unlimited WIFI, television. The kitchen has an electric stove, microwave, and full-size fridge. Breakfast includes tea and organic coffee, milk, home made muesli and preserves made from our own fruit.

Both bedrooms have ample storage, feather and down quilts and views out to the garden.

The bathroom is supplied with a hairdryer, soap, shampoo and large towels. There is a separate toilet.

The outdoor area has the hot tub/spa, a barbeque and comfortable outdoor furniture.

We can help you with local places to visit - cafes, restaurants, movie theaters, wineries and day excursions. You can be as private as you want but we are always delighted to share our local knowledge with you.

You will need your own car. It is a 3 minute drive into town and if you enjoy walking then it is a lovely lakeside walk or a ride that takes about 30 minutes.
There is an electric bike available for you to use.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Garden Cottage. It had everything the three of us needed and was well equipped for our stay. We loved the spa pool and Jenny's amazing hospitality. We didn't want to leave and if we were ever back in Wanaka we would stay there again.
