About the property

Bach or holiday home, 4 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8)

This holiday house is a cosy and child friendly. The location offers amazing views of lake Ohau, Mt Sefton, Ben Ohau, and is only 20 minutes away from the Ohau ski field. If you don't ski then salmon or trout can be fished for in the rivers and lakes. In summer you can enjoy water skiing and swimming, especially in Lake Middleton. At the back of the house is a space for the kids to enjoy while the adults have a drink by the fire or on the deck. There are many fantastic walking and mountain bike tracks close by. There is the Ohau lodge if you feel like a meal out. Clay Cliffs near Omarama are amazing. Twizel offers good coffee and many lunch or dining options as well as a indoor skate rink. Mount Cook and beautiful Lake Tasman are well worth a visit, as is the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve basin for awe-inspired stargazing, 1 of only 8 in the world! The Alps 2 Ocean (A2O) cycle trail passes very close to the property.

Please note that the rates do not include linen and cleaning. We expect you to bring your own sheets and towels and clean when you leave the house.

Ohau is a very quiet village, there are no shops or cafes. The nearest supermarket is in Twizel. There is limited cell phone coverage in the village but we offer free unlimited WIFI in the house.

Special conditions:

There is a WII in the rumpus room. Smoking is allowed outside only. Pets allowed with prior approval. There is room on the street for safe boat parking. Cellphone coverage is available in some areas of the house. Free unlimited WIFI.

Great location on the lake.

  • 4 of 5

Great location on the lake. What is a little bizarre is the cleaning is left to the people who rent. So when we got there a good two hour cleaning was required to meet our standards. Not everyone has the same definition of cleanliness. We saw the people before us cleaned but not to our standards. We had to clean under the glass table with dishwasher soap to lose the grease. We also cleaned the windows inside out. Need a new mop and better vacume to do better job. A cleaning service should do thi

Owner's Response: HI Vicky, thank for your feedback. In New Zealand it is very common for baches to be cleaned by the people who rent it. I hoped that was clearly stated on the website and in my emails. I am very sorry it was not up to your standard. Thank you very much for leaving it behind so clean and tidy. I hope you still had a good time. Natalie

The Batch is Awesome.

  • 5 of 5

The Batch is Awesome. Big, Funky, Family Friendly and has everything you could possibly need for cooking/playing/relaxing. The Views are to die for! Spent many a night catching up with my dad on the Porch over looking the lake :) Its rustic charm won our hearts, if I'm heading that way again, I'm definitely staying there again!!

Thanks Natalie & Simon, sheer Ohau quality! xxx
