Our loved home can be filled with adrenaline day skiing, ice climbing, hiking, also romantic for two or safe and family friendly. The Lake Hawea is only 2 minuts away. You can curled up beside a roaring fire, glass of wine in hand and watch the view.

The space

Thanks to the modern rustic and charming style is your holiday dream coming true.
During the wintertime our fire place will make the house toasty, heaters, hot water bottle and double glazed windows.... what else to wish for, after the day skiing on the slopes? Just glass of wine maybe?
Also there will be plenty of outdoor tips as both owners are really outdoorsy people :)

Cozy place. Lake Hawea is much quieter. Nice experience overall!

This little house suited us well. It is in a good location in Lake Hawea. With so much to do outside the house we didn't spend much time in it. Eva was easy to deal with and the stay was good.

Really enjoyed our stay here - wonderful views from the deck and dining area and bedroom. Very comfortable and cosy with the fire. Clear communication re directions for locating the place and information for our stay. We would stay again.

Eva's place is in a great peaceful spot with a view of the lake from the deck. It's small and cosy and the log fire had the place snug in no time, even in the cold and rainy weather! It's well equipt and had everything we needed for a 3 night stay with our 2 year old daughter. Eva was very friendly, helpful and on hand if we needed anything.

It is quiet and leisurely. It is a house near the lake. There is a tendency for hosts to intervene and ask their neighbors to monitor guests. The house is not bad. But there are reasons why bathrooms and showers won't be in pictures. You will be charged with extra charge from Eva if you use a heater furnished in Eva's house.

Response from Eva:
Thank you for your review. Let me just put things right: neighbours contacted me, because you booked with them as well and they wanted to warn me, you didn't pay anything extra for having the powerbill more then 3 times higher then the previous month and I am happy to take a picture of bathroom and the WC (it is before the reconstruction, therefore the price, but clean and tidy). Thank you again for the review and my chance to reply.
