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.

Unfortunately we cannot confirm bookings to far in advance for 2016 as we are planning stage 2 build of our house development. While timing is so uncertain we are unable to update the website booking availability calendar too far in advance.

Special conditions: Pricing is based on 4 guests. Minimum stay is 3 nights. Optional linen hire can be arranged (one set supplied per 7 days). For stays of 3 nights there is a $180 cleaning charge. For stays of 4 nights or more, cleaning is inclusive.

    Perfect location, fabulous house with stunning views! So comfortable and clean with all the amenities one needs. We would go back in a heart beat. Just absolutely loved the home and everything about it! And, so close to Wanaka and all the hiking trails.

    This property is located about five minutes drive from Wanaka, or you can walk along the Clutha River if you prefer, for a beautiful walk (about 15km). The property is beautifully fitted out and everything you need is there including lots of herbs and ingredients in a fully kitted kitchen. In short, its perfect for a family of four but I think there are sofa beds in the living room as well so more could stay potentially if Catherine is happy with that. Would definitely stay again.

    So glad you enjoyed your stay and the kitchen/herb garden. Really happy to know that my feeble efforts with gardening interspersed with much neglect is being enjoyed by guests.
