Overview

In complete privacy, the Homestead boasts captivating views of Lake Wanaka and the surrounding mountains. Behind the Homestead and stables extends an immense land of classic New Zealand scenery – grand mountains, alpine lakes, meandering rivers and winding valleys. From the Homestead, you can relax, absorb the breathtaking views and be indulged by our attentive team. Inside, you’ll find a rustic design that incorporates locally sourced materials and modern features to ensure easy living. There are endless spaces to unwind: a sprawling farmhouse kitchen, large open living room with uninterrupted views, dining room, library and numerous outdoor areas, which will allow you to simply sit and absorb the scenery, dine outside or lounge poolside.

The on-site helipad is perfect for easy helicopter transfers or heli-based activities. The Homestead and Cottages are the perfect base from which to explore and experience the many activities available on-site at Mahu Whenua, or nearby at Wanaka, Queenstown, Fiordland National Park or Mt Aspiring National Park. Activities available on-site include horse riding, mountain biking, hiking, yoga, spa services, cooking courses and heli-skiing. Mahu Whenua is also an eco-sanctuary, so you’ll have the opportunity to take conservation tours to learn about the native plant and bird projects underway and sustainable farming practices being undertaken on the property. All stays are hosted with a dedicated concierge team and creative and innovative chefs to cater exceptional cuisine and premium cellar selection wines.

The four individual suites may be booked out individually as well – please contact us for more information.

Whether you’re looking for a venue for a corporate retreat, an intimate wedding location or a family reunion, the Homestead and stables at Mahu Whenua provide the perfect secluded location just 20 minutes drive from central Wanaka, 60 minutes drive from Queenstown or a 10 minute helicopter transfer from Queenstown Airport to the local helipad.
