A beautifully presented, immaculate home. Great amenities & was the perfect location for us to attend a wedding at Ohau Lodge. We loved our stay & highly recommend it to others. Thanks so much!

Lake Ohau is a great spot and the house is brand new with great views from all around. The items in the pantry were a saver for our first night Would recommend.

This place blew me and my father away! It is more spectacular than the pictures! We wish we had more people in our group to share it with. The location is off the beat and path, but easy one hour drive to Mt. Cook/Tasman Glacier and Tekapo. We did a Heli-hike and stargazing during our stay, which were both absolutely amazing. Lake Ohau is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen and my father even braved the cold and jumped in for a swim! The house was so clean and modern and had everything we could possibly want and more!

Take a look inside Down Time at Lake Ohau

Escape the roar and rush of city life with nature in the Down Time House, Lake Ohau, in Canterbury. As the name suggests this house is the perfect gateway to enjoy the downtime that one needs from the intense life in today’s world. A quaint skip in the serene surroundings of Lake Ohau is the perfect excuse to stay at this beautiful piece of property. The homeliness of the Down Time House can easily be harnessed as the unique selling point of this house for the hordes of guests that flock here to book their stays. The house is a simple one against the glitzy glamour of the extravagant villas.


The location of the property is ideal for fun activities. Lake Ohau is just five minutes’ walk away. Mt. Cook and Mt. Tekapo are literally forty minutes’ drive far. Stargazing is another thing that the guests can enjoy in the light pollution free nights. Many walking trails exist nearby the property in Ruataniwha National Park or Mt. Cook. If one is exploratory, then they can also try the Cycle Trail named ‘Alps to Ocean’. A lazy walk by the riverside or lakeside is equally enticing as the other options.
