Work And Play In Wanaka

Hello digital nomads, I hope you are sitting in an amazing location with your laptop in front of you looking out to a spectacular view and looking forward to what the rest of the day may bring. If not, why not? You have the opportunity to work anywhere in the world so make the most of it!

We believe that Wanaka in the South Island of New Zealand is the ultimate place to settle for a while to work and play. It is the perfect place to strike that work/life balance.

With New Zealand being the first country in the world to see the sunrise on a new day, you will always be ahead of the game, so you can get that deal done before everyone else awakes. It also offers an escape from the cold winters of the Northern Hemisphere.

Wanaka is a superb location for a ‘digital nomad’. An adult playground in the most stunning location and only a 1 hour drive from Queenstown International Airport. Wherever you are in Wanaka you are treated to views of the Southern Alps and if you stay in one of Release Wanaka’s luxury holiday rentals you are more than likely to have views of Lake Wanaka. You have a choice of activities to participate in when your work is complete for the day – mountain biking, hiking, climbing, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, paragliding, yoga, strolling along the lake front, enjoying award-winning food and beer… the list goes on in and if you decide to come in the winter, then skiing is just a 40min drive away.


Wanaka is a small town where you can slip right into the local way of life. Staying with Release Wanaka we not only offer you a home away from home but we offer local knowledge so you can make the most of your time here. We can point you in the right direction of just about anything and help you to organise equipment rental, trips, travel, meals… you name it, we can help! Schools welcome transient residents and short term memberships are available for clubs and groups. Wanaka is an international town welcoming people from all over the world all year round.

So, get away from the norm and do something different. Give your family a life experience and amazing memories. The only problem you will have with Wanaka, New Zealand is being able to leave!!
