Located on a quiet street just 10 minutes walk to the lake front & village, Connemara Retreat has a lovely sunny open plan living area with heat pump, log burner and great mountain views.  

The fully fenced property caters for a broad range of guests and recreational pursuits with ample storage space under the house for your skis, bikes, kayaks etc. It has off street parking for several cars, and a large sheltered deck perfect for après ski drinks, star-gazing or some well-earned rest and relaxation. 

Being less than an hour from the slopes of the three local ski fields, Connemara Retreat is a fantastic property for winter adventures, letting you follow the freshies.   The super efficient log burner and heated linen cupboard are ideal for drying your ski gear. 

A fantastic, well-equipped kitchen is the icing on the cake for a relaxing stay or to feed the troops after a big day on the slopes.  

The 3 bedrooms are well appointed with comfortable, warm queen beds. One has an ensuite and the other two share an additional spacious bathroom with shower and bath – perfect for a soak after a day adventuring.

By prior arrangement, Connemara also welcomes well-behaved dogs, so your whole family can enjoy the break.  See our FAQ's for more details.

  • Great place and location for a family or group of 4 to 5 people. Easy check-in, easy to find, nice comfortable rooms and beds, quiet area, and all good amenities.

    Prospero (NZ) - Jan, 2022

  • Perfect place to stay, enough space for two couples and two under 2 year olds. Plus the section is fenced so no issues for the dog to explore outside.

    Melissa (NZ) - Dec, 2021

  • Great spot particularly for a family or anyone travelling with a doggo.

    Britanny (NZ) - Nov, 2021

    Kresha (NZ) - Oct, 2021

  • Really lovely place to stay in a beautiful town. The warm fire was the highlight of our stay. Clean with comfortable beds and plenty of space for the whole family. Kitchen facilities were perfect for cooking a roast too!

    Theresa (NZ) - May, 2021

  • Much better than I expected, and in particular having my own boat to securely park. The accom and the contact from our host was fantastic. I would totally stay here again.
