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

The space
Hawkshead is Private, Quiet, Spacious, Open and Warm. Indoor and Outdoor Flow. At the head of Lake Wanaka makes perfect for an overnight stay. There is so much on offer in this valley from hiking, jet boating to scenic flights or simply just to relax , listen to the birds, read book under the shady trees. Travelling takes a lot of energy, so why not take a break and spoil yourself and recharge.

Guest access
In the event that Bridget is not on the property when you arrive, your studio will be clean and ready for your arrival. Please enter through the gates and your studio ranch slider will be unlocked with the key on the inside door, where you will see a welcome note from Bridget. Your host enjoys meeting you on arrival but sometimes this is not possible. Guests have use of the entire studio and have their own patio and parking right outside their room. 2 minute walk across the paddocks to the river for a walk or swim, all day sun and mountain views. The large garden is also for guests to enjoy.

Other things to note
Perfect half way stop between Te Anau/Queenstown and Fox Glacier/Franz Josef. Relax under the trees with a book , walk the tracks, go for a jet boat ride, or a scenic flight, go for a swim, fire up the bbq, play with my labs.
