Welcome to Barn 8 Studio, our newly renovated historic barn. Our entirely private studio is fully self contained making it easy to stay for a relaxing nights get away or a longer holiday in the Central Otago region. We live in a peaceful rural setting where we run a small lifestyle block. It is the perfect place for star gazing in the outdoor bath or relaxing reading a book under the trees in the private garden area.

The space
Our newly renovated studio has been fully insulated making for a pleasant, relaxing environment. The fully equipped kitchen has all the conveniences of home and there is a BBQ set up with outdoor dining so you can enjoy those long summer evenings. The separate laundry makes it a great place to refresh at your pace. We have installed a heat pump for easy heating and cooling. There is a sofa bed that would be suitable for 1 adult or a couple of children. Linen for this is available on request.

Location

Hawea Flat, Otago, New Zealand

We live in a quiet semi-rural area surrounded by mountains. It is an ideal place for a relaxing get away. Located 10 mins drive down the road is Lake Hawea. There is a cafe/restaurant/bar, a local pub and a shop that stocks fresh, local produce. The village of Luggate is also 10mins drive away with a historic pub. Wanaka is 15mins drive away with all the amenities of a bigger town. There are multiple walking/cycling tracks of different difficulties located near by and various swimming spots to cool down on a hot day. The Hawea river with a "surfing wave" and picnic/swimming spot is 5min drive on the way to wanaka

My family and I located to Hawea Flat a few years ago from Wanaka to enjoy a more low key lifestyle. We have a 4 year old daughter and a new baby, 2 dogs, a cat and a few chickens. I emigrated from Ireland over 10 years ago and didn't get much further than the stunning Wanaka. My husband, Brooke grew up in Dunedin and spent a lot of time in Central Otago as a child. We are currently learning the ropes of owning a rural property, honing our skills in sheep shearing, thistle eradication and hay making. I recently started my own Architectural Design business after working and studying architecture for over 15 years. Brooke is a builder who works locally and tries to get as much time on the land as possible. We both love to travel and understand the joy of a relaxing, private place to return to after a long days adventuring somewhere new. This is what we strive to achieve with our accommodation.
