The Barn has amazing views into the Wilkin (URL HIDDEN) a wonderful place to rest after exploring the mountains of the Mt Aspiring National Park. The log burner makes it cozy and comfortable. It's a simple and special place.
“This place is amazing. If you’re not sure whether to stay here, just do it! Beautiful location and spectacular views. The barn itself is so cosy with the log fire. Pete and Janine have thought of everything. Very comfortable, and breakfast all provided. They were the perfect hosts. Quick responses and easy communication. And they were always on hand to answer questions, recommend things to do in the area and check we had what we needed. Loved it here, can’t recommend it enough!”
Enjoy the open spaces, the rural aspects and a charming and comfortable, yet spacious well appointed self catered studio. Bridget and her 3 labradors welcome you. Surrounded by farmland it's a 2 minute walk to the Makarora River. Wake to a mountain view and the early morning sun. You have your own private entrance and outdoor seating area. The ‘hawkshead’ culture is a very relaxed one. Halfway between the sounds and glaciers. Self catering & simple cooking facilities. Complimentary WIFI
“There is no other place quite like Hawkshead, Makarora, it sings. We were blessed to have been able to stay there longer than originally intended. Bridget is truly a Super Hostess in every classic meaning of the words, a bright, caring, thoughtful soul who is quite simply a joy to be around. Her Labradors are just the same as she is, a joy. When we needed a couple of extra days to sort things out due to the current Corvid 19 pandemic, she made it a very easy, trouble free thing to do. Thank you Bridget, again, from the depths of our hearts.”
Our charming cottage sits at the end of the driveway looking into the incredible Wilkin valley. This is a truly special private sanctuary in the wilderness for one to two people. From this fully self contained space you can explore the Mt Aspiring National park, Blue Pools, Isthmus Peak, Haast, Wanaka and Hawea. Explore or settle in by the fire on the most comfortable couch and enjoy the view, the serenity and beauty of this place. The Cottage is an adults only space.
“Pete & Janine has an amazing property in Makarora, where we were able to appreciate a peaceful rural lifestyle with a great view. The accommodation was amazing and just what we needed! We loved all the furnishing, the place looked very trendy. The bonus of a kitchen is handy for meals in, and all the trimmings that were provided were a great touch in case ingredients were forgotten. The space was super cozy with the log fire, especially on a chilly winters day! Thanks again Pete & Janine, we will definitely be back!”
