Beautiful newly built Strawbale Cottage set on a 11 acre block on the same prestigious road as Wanaka Haven, Riverrun Lodge and Cedar Lodge. Stunning 180 degree mountain views and only a short walk down the road to the Clutha River and multiple foot and cycle paths that lead along the water to Albert town and Lake Hawea.

All modern conveniences with a fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities with brand new appliances complemented by a character filled and rustic country styled interior. This is a fantastic cottage in both Winter and Summer as the strawbale acts as a natural insulation keeping it cool in the summer when large sliding doors provide great indoor and outdoor flow to shaded outdoor patios and then in winter thick wallskeep you feeling cosy and snug while you relax in front of a roaring log burner and look out at snow capped mountains.

Large double bedroom with ample storage and a luxurious bathroom with rain head shower and a deep bathtub for soaking in.

A special one of a kind retreat which offers a great functional base combining privacy and stunning views with a close proximity to the lake and ski fields.

  • The Straw Cottage was fantastic

    The Straw Cottage was fantastic. We stayed for four nights over the 16/17 new years. Emily and Wes were really accommodating. The house was amazing and the kitchen was very well equipped and we were using the BBQ every day. It's handy being only a few minutes drive to Wanaka town centre. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone wanting a boutique and comfortable getaway in Wanaka. Would happily stay here again when I return.

  • Beautifully presented property in an picture postcard location

    Beautifully presented property in an picture postcard location. We loved our stay in the strawbale cottage. The house was warm and cosy and had all the mod cons we needed, including wifi. Only 5 mins to Wanaka and good coffee and food! Lovely hosts. We'd love to come back and stay. Highly recommended.
