Relax and stay a while - A Family Affair

Posted by Release Wanaka on September 28, 2017

Coming to Wanaka, New Zealand for an extended trip makes sense, especially if you are traveling from the other side of the world. Who wants to travel all this way for a rushed, short vacation? No way! Staying for a longer period is definitely the way to go!

Traveling with the family can be stressful at the best of times but throw jet lag into the equation and it's a recipe for a rocky start to your holiday, even more so if you have little ones. An extended trip allows everyone time to adjust, get used to the time zone, climate and being away from home without the thoughts that you are wasting precious holiday time. 

Basing yourself in one place also adds to the benefits of an extended family holiday. A home away from home where you can relax, spread out and be flexible with your plans. Holiday Rental Homes / Vacation Rentals are a perfect place for your family to retreat to, get privacy with no disruptions and do what you want when you want. 

As a family, pleasing everyone can be difficult, some may want to go sight seeing, others may want to mountain bike. A Holiday Rental Home / Vacation Rental offers that haven to come back to and compare stories and marvel in the spectacular views that surround you. 

Here at Release Wanaka we believe a Holiday Rental Home / Vacation Rental in Wanaka is the perfect place to base yourself and discover the region. Wanaka is situated in the South Island of New Zealand, a fantastic place from which to explore Mount Aspiring National Park, Milford Sound, The West Coast, Mount Cook, Lake Tekapo, Queenstown, Southland and beyond.
