  • What a view, the location takes it all in! House modern and great spaces to still take in the views hot or cold.

    Susanne (NZ) - Feb, 2022

  • Absolutely loved our stay, the views were stunning to wake up to and the kids had a great time playing with the board games available.

    Corey (NZ) - Oct, 2021

  • Lake Watch is the most impressive holiday house I have ever stayed at! It boasts direct views to the lake and snow capped mountains with all day sun and a pleasant stroll to the lake. Spacious and well designed with a cosy fireplace, modern kitchen and dining area with views to the lake. The 3 bedrooms are well separated for privacy and the bathrooms are spacious and there is even a bath for relaxing in after a day's skiing! I am keen to book again and highly recommend this most wonderful retreat!

    Lorraine (NZ) - Aug, 2021

  • A beautiful house to stay in. Even better than the pictures. Beautifully clean with quality beds and bedding. Lots of heaters and a log burner which was much appreciated as it was freezing at night. The view was spectacular and the big living area windows really show cased it beautifully. I would highly recommend this house to others.
