We are close to central Wanaka and all the activities and adventures that this alpine resort offers—there's something on offer whatever the season. Or you may be looking for some down time, to relax and unwind in a peaceful, tranquil environment.

The lakeside is close—perfect for picnics and summer swimming.

Other local activities include golf, water skiing, 3 snow ski fields (within 30 minutes), mountain biking, fishing (lake and river), day walks and multi-day tramps and climbing.

We are close to Mount Aspiring and Fiordland National Parks, and the well-known Rees-Dart and Routeburn tracks are within a 3.5 hour drive.

Queenstown is a 1-hour drive away, and Lake Hawea and the gateway to the West Coast are just 15 minutes away.

We're lucky to live in one of New Zealand's most beautiful regions, and we'd love to share it with you.

  • The accommodation was perfect

    The accommodation was perfect. Clean, tidy with nice new fixtures and very comfy warm beds. There were even Easter Eggs on arrival, much to the delight of the kids! The location suited us perfectly , an easy walk to town and biking trails close by. We loved our stay and will definitely be going back again.

    Fabulous place to stay - everything we needed was available. Very comfortable, clean and private - a 'home away from home'.

  • Marieke and John are very warm and welcoming

    Marieke and John are very warm and welcoming. The property is very well located, a short drive to town. There is a lovely outside area where we enjoyed a glass of wine whilst watching the sunset over the snow capped mountains. We also enjoyed herbs from the garden in our salad. The property is very well appointed, immaculately clean, with quality kitchen appliances, a great shower and very comfy bed. Chocolates were a nice touch. Netflicks or a dvd player would be a nice addition.
