Reviews
  • "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.""

What our customers say

  • "Thankfully the 11 guests of this gorgeous place are all well although I am feeling a little bruised and sore from falling over too often yesterday at Snow Farm. Sadly, the packing up has started and we farewell these gorgeous mountain views and serenity! I know you couldn't have organized the weather but we've been incredibly lucky this week able to go out and get a good sense of this area...I think one by one we'll all be back in this land of The Lord of the Rings! Thank you for your chocolates and you never know a summer holiday here might just callout to us. This space was just perfect for our large number for our get together and the 60th birthday dinner at Bistro Gentil was more than wonderful - ambience, food and wine (most of it brought by us) and the service was excellent too. Fond memories we all have as one by one we take off on our various flights. We are looking forward to home after 2 months wanderings. All the best in your endeavors and pass on our appreciation to the friendly Sue too won't you?"
