Plush lakefront villas, unobstructed views of Remutaka rangers and lake onoke. The South Wairarapa district is an area at the southeast tip of the North Island.
The Wairarapa coast is rugged & spectacular after a day of exploring the many activities in the area, we can offer a few creature comforts for those whose idea of roughing it includes a super king bed, quality linen, spacious modern bathroom. Climate controlled heating and cooling system's, wifi and smart TV options to name but a few.
Watch the sunset behind the snow-capped south island Kaikoura ranges and take advantage of our dark sky for stargazing.

These villas include cozy open plan living, with a mezzanine floor and easy outdoor flow onto the deck. They are architecturally designed, brand new and an ideal option at Lake Ferry, with views overlooking Lake Onoke.

The mezzanine floor is fitted with a Super King bed which can be converted into two single beds if required. A Queen fold out couch is available on request. This is an excellent set up for couples or a small family.

Rent one of the villas or organize a few families to stay and rent all four. Chill out with your group and take in the scenery.

When you are not relaxing on the deck, head to the beach and have a go at long line fishing with views of the South Island. Try your hand at catching whitebait in the spring, or sit back, relax and enjoy a beautiful sunset in the garden bar of the Lake Ferry Hotel.

If you'd like to travel further a field there are numerous options ...

A 30 minute drive from Lake Ferry is Cape Palliser. The home to the North Island's largest fur seal colony and the Cape Palliser lighthouse. Climb the 253 steps to see her up close.
