Our home

Our cottage at Hatepe comprises 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one an ensuite), kitchen/dining and cosy comfortable living room with open fireplace in the main house. There is also a small sleepout in the back garden. There is a large terrace on the lakeside which is well set up for outdoor living and enjoying evenings eating and sitting around the large wood fire. There is another sheltered deck and barbeque area adjacent to the kitchen. Our 15' tin dingy with 15hp motor is available for guest use. A cleaner can be arranged on a regular basis if required. There is plenty of storage in the garage and parking for 3 cars.

Who we are

  1. We are Mark and Diana and our cottage is our holiday home. Mark is a passionate trout fisherman and we both love the swimming and boating on the lake in summer. Diana is a writer and finds inspiration in the peace and natural beauty of the area. We have adult children and grandchildren living in Europe and regularly travel to be with them. We have never tried home exchange before but see it as a fabulous opportunity to have an overseas holiday in a similarly beautiful location in Europe. Our children also use the cottage as a winter ski base as it is only 45 minutes to the nearest ski fields.
