We are a NZ family of 5. My husband is a University academic and I am a relief teacher. Our children are aged 19, 17 & 10. The property we wish to swap is our holiday house in Lake Hawea. It is a comfortable house built in 2002 with all the mod cons including dishwasher etc. Surrounded by mountains and the stunning lake Hawea just a few minutes walk from the house with walking/ bicycle track along the lake front . Also a few minutes away is the start of the walk/bicycle track along the Hawea river that goes all the way to the township of Wanaka. We have bikes available at the house (2 adult and 4 children).

Other Comments

Lake Hawea is 15 minutes drive from Wanaka which has many restaurants, shops, supermarket, 18 hole golf course, cinemas and a range of Watersport companies e.g lake cruise. Queenstown is 1 hour drive. Many day walks with stunning veiws eg. Mt Iron, Mt Roy, Rob Roy Glacier, Millenium track. There are many other tracks taking two or more days with sleeping huts, information about these can be found at the information centre and the DOC centre which are both in Wanaka. There are 3 ski areas in the region, Treble Cone, Cardrona and the Snowfarm. Please note the downstairs rooms of our house do not have internal access with the upstairs so it is not suitable for very young children to be alone downstairs.
