Enviable rivers-edge location. Sunny, new Wanaka holiday house in Albert Town. All day year round sun, this stylish, new 2 bedroom & 2 bathroom home is well appointed and is only 5 minutes drive to Wanaka township. The views across the Clutha river, DOC reserve and spectacular mountain ranges are ever changing and exceptional.

Situated on the edge of the Clutha River opposite the Hawea River junction and a short distance upstream from the Cardrona River outlet (hence the 'Three Rivers' name) with excellent trout fishing at your doorstep and awesome views of surrounding mountains. Beautiful walking and cycle tracks along the Clutha River and to Lake Hawea.

House is fully self contained with 2 bedrooms, a generous open-plan living area, double glazing, underfloor heated bathrooms, double garage, and great indoor/outdoor flow. Freeview TV and DVD. Wood burner fire, heat pump in the living area and heaters in both bedrooms. Kitchen kitted out with modern German appliances. Well insulated construction keeps a constant temperature easily. Flexible sleeping configuration, with one of the beds a split and zippered super-king bed converting to 2 king single beds – or zips back together.

Stage 1 of a 2 stage building dream, the house construction was just completed in June 2010, so minimal landscaping or planting has been done yet. But this does allow for unrestricted views across the river and mountain scape and the site is the most stunning location.

The perfect place for a couple, or two couples who want a break away, or ideal for a family (with school age children or older) holiday.

 V comfortable, modern home. Loved it! Great Location! 

 This property has fabulous views and could not be better located if you are a cyclist and want to be in a great spot for joining the local trails, of which there are many! Every comfort has been considered, we all felt very much at home right from the moment we arrived, and all slept like logs. 

  •  Thank you for your lovely feedback. We do try to make the house as comfortable as possible and really get a buzz from hearing that our holiday guests have had a fabulous stay.

 A stunning home in a superbly peaceful location. The house was well equipped and beds were really comfortable. The outdoor space is perfect and has a stunning setting as you look out to the mountain ranges. Garage space was ideal as we had bikes so made things easy. Thanks again, we will be back! 

  •  Your always welcome back. Just love those mountain views an can't imagine ever getting tired of them.

 A beautiful home, very peaceful & restful location. The beds were comfortable & we appreciated the under floor heating in the bathrooms on arrival as it was a lot cooler the day we arrived. The kitchen was well equipped & the pantry well stocked with the basics. We loved the outdoor space & our lasting memory will be the evening spent under the stars in the outdoor beanbags counting satellites (17). A very clear sky. 

  •  So happy you will have such positive lasting memories of your stay at our holiday home. Love that sky, and the evening light is truly magical regardless of what the weather is up to.

 A comfortable and lovely place to stay. For the ski season it misses a drying room, and is freezing in the basement room.

  •  We have two heaters in the downstairs bedroom as well as electric blankets on the beds, really good quality warm duvets and thermal insulated curtains, making it possible to get the area to a cosy temperature. The downstairs bathroom has underfloor heating, a heated bath rail and even the mirror has a heating pad behind it.
