Enjoy the open spaces, the rural aspects and a charming and comfortable, yet spacious well appointed 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 all around 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 with cooking facilities. Complimentary WIFI available

Bridget's home is nestled in a beautiful valley about an hour north of Wanaka. It is a very comfortable room. While Bridget was away during our overnight stay, her mom, Josie, greeted us with such warmth and hospitality that we immediately felt at home. Highly recommended.

Unreal stay. We did not meet Bridget however her mother was super helpful in planning our next couple days and drive to Queenstown. The apartment has everything you need and great wifi.

Cozy and comfy and secluded. The dogs are very sweet (and never in your rented space, if that's a concern). Perfect place to stay before our Siberia trek.
