Makarora Mountainview Cottage is located in a stunning alpine location with spectacular mountain and river views. Surrounded by Mt Aspiring World Heritage National Park this secluded retreat is the perfect place to relax and unwind.

Kickback and de-stress in the idyllic atmosphere... chill out on the deck with a glass of wine or beer... delight in the antics of the many native birds... feed the spring lamb, view the cattle 15 metres from your door... or take a short stroll to the nature walk.

If you don't want to cook try out the local bar/restaurant which is an easy 5 minutes stroll down the road.

For those looking for outdoor adventure try the acclaimed FLY WALK JETBOAT trips Siberia Wilderness Walk or Siberia Experience... fish the awesome natural rivers... take your boat on the lakes with the closest boat ramp just 10 mins away... jetboat river access is just down the road... tramp/hike the amazing Gillespie Pass Track... stroll down to the renowned Blue Pools... explore Haast and Jackson Bay on the West Coast which are a comfortable day excursion away with plenty of less demanding short walks on the way... there is something here for everyone!

For the winter oriented Cardrona, Snow Farm and Treble Cone ski fields are just 70 minutes drive from Makarora.

AND of course every 2 years the world famous Warbirds over Wanaka occurs... get out of the rat race that Wanaka becomes and stay in the tranquility of Makarora.

While there are 3 bedrooms in this cottage - it is a bach and the twin bedroom is accessed through a curtained doorway from the middle bedroom.

Makarora is situated approx. 60km north of Wanaka.

  • Slightly isolated, but still close to amenities

    Slightly isolated, but still close to amenities. Huge bedrooms, lovely rustic, homely feel to the entire place. Having the woodburner made it feel warm and cosy, with the cold weather outside. Ample supplies of wood (and even more if you wanted to break out the axe!). Great stack of board games and books there for entertainment as well. Would have loved to have stayed much longer!

  • House was warm and had plenty of beds

    House was warm and had plenty of beds. Bedroom doors creaked so loudly you couldn’t open them when someone was sleeping, one bedroom door didn’t have a handle. The shower mixer rotated freely so it was impossible to set to a reasonable temperature. Couldn’t find some light switches and the one we could find in the kitchen was in a cupboard! Wifi was unusably slow. Double bed in one of the rooms had a mattress that sank in the middle.

    This place was big with plenty of room for more than just our four. It was well set up and comfortable with lots of utensils. Lovely views overlooking the Haast and walking space up creeks etc.
