Overview

Spectacular 180 degree views of Lake Wanaka and the mountains are to be enjoyed from Ridgecrest, a stunning luxury holiday vacation rental property in Wanaka. Situated an easy drive in Wanaka town centre on an elevated spot, the spacious private villa sleeps up to 12 guests and offers plenty of space for groups or extended families to relax and spread out. Stunning views are to be enjoyed from almost every room, with a large open plan living zone looking out to the lake housing a kitchen, dining area and lounge space. Sliding doors open this up to the Loggia, an undercover deck area complete with gas BBQ and outdoor fireplace – a great spot to relax with a glass of local wine and watch the sun set over Lake Wanaka. With the binoculars you can see straight across to Roy’s Peak, spying on hikers snaking their way up or down.

The luxury holiday home splits into two, with 4 ensuite bedrooms on one side of the house and the remaining 2 bedrooms sharing a bathroom in the connected apartment. This apartment area also has its own full kitchen plus a dining area, lounge space and laundry – a great selling point if you’re a large family getting together who may still want their own space and to spend time separately! A spa pool facing the lake provides some well-deserved relaxation time, while a separate media room downstairs offers a TV area plus a pool table for a friendly family competition! Wanaka town centre is an easy 5 minute drive from the luxury villa, which was designed by renowned architect Regan Johnston. Minimum stay at Ridgecrest is 7 nights.
