The Dacha epitomises the elegance of exclusive modern architecture and is one of New Zealand's finest private residences. The Dacha enjoys dramatic panoramic views of Lake Wanaka and its spectacular mountainous landscape.

The main residence has three superb ensuited bedrooms and two generous bunkrooms that offer guests flexibility, depending on their preferred bedding requirements.

The spacious living and entertaining areas all have jaw-dropping views and flow seamlessly onto the balconies and beautifully landscaped private gardens. The Dacha (translates to 'second home' in Russian) is for those who aspire to experience Wanaka and its inspiring landscapes in a private residence that is itself, a stunning work-of-art.

  • "We are also very proud to have had the Dacha recognized as a winner in the recent Southern Architecture Awards. As reported: Views don't come any better than this – and you could get to enjoy it yourself. The Dacha House, a lodge designed by Wanaka architect Eliska Lewis was one of the winners in the Housing category of the NZIA Southern Architecture Awards announced on Friday, June 9 2017. In announcing the awards, the jury described it as "a generous house designed to take full advantage of an amazing view". "The Wanaka house captures the magnificent landscape from every room, and throughout the architect has handled scale thoughtfully and with careful attention to details and materiality.""
