  • "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

  • "We had an amazing time staying in Faulks Terrace. It felt like a home away from a home and everything inside the house felt fresh and vibrant. The house itself had everything and made my partner and I dream of our future house together. The location was perfect and we want to stay again very soon"
