Release Wanaka - Forty Seven

Posted by Release Wanaka on December 20, 2016

This property enjoys views of Lake Wanaka and the mountains beyond. Bordering a reserve, the property has the advantage of a huge extended garden perfect for the kids to play on and providing that extra bit of privacy.

Forty Seven has recently been fitted out in modern luxurious furnishings. It is a bright and airy home with a fresh feel, just what you need on a summers day. You can relax in the outdoor courtyard, enjoying the landscaped gardens and mountain views with a glass of your favourite wine or create a cocktail in the fully equipped kitchen.

To escape for some time out on your own, head upstairs to the balcony with a coffee and the newspaper.

For the more adventurous, jump on your Mountain Bike at Sticky Forest which is just around the corner. 'Release Wanaka Fixer' can sort you out with bikes amongst other things, or if you fancy a more mellow ride head down to the lake track which will take you around the lake to Wanaka township where you can enjoy cake, ice cream, lunch, coffee, beer, fish and chips (the list goes on) in one of many excellent cafes and restaurants Wanaka has to offer!

Forty Seven still has dates available for this summer, check out the property and calendar on our website @ Release Wanaka - Forty Seven

Mia and Ben were the lucky couple to win this wedding trip of a life time. They stayed in the luxurious 'Release Wanaka - Infinity Drive' which sits up on the hill at Peninsula Bay looking out to the lake and mountains.

Everything about Infinity Drive says ‘luxury’, from the decor to the furnishings and art work. No expense has been spared with this superb designer home. The solid masonry home has clean lines and plenty of natural light. An amazing retreat after a day of helicopters, photographs and celebrations!

Congratulations Mia and Ben!

Posted by Release Wanaka on December 02, 2016

Heading to Wanaka for your luxury break with Release Wanaka? Then get buying those tickets and entry fees and become part of a musical, sport mad community! Release Wanaka Travel Fixer can help organise your events calendar so you have time to concentrate on your dance moves or training schedule!

Here are a few events that are coming up:

Music Events

Summer and music festivals go together like cheese and wine. Wanaka is no exception when it comes to the summer music festival scene and with New Year approaching there are a number to choose from.

Top Paddock Music Festival - "New Years Eve 2016 will blow your mind with 10 acts from around the globe. Located outdoors in Lake Hawea, an iconic alpine location surrounded by lake and mountains. Genres include: contemporary country, country, rock, pop, blues and roots. We know how hard you work throughout the year - this is your opportunity to play harder."

Wanaka New Year Celebrations - "New Year's Eve for many is a highlight on Wanaka's event calendar. Positioned on the Wanaka Lakefront, the year of 2016 is brought in with a great line-up of live music, entertainment and a spectacular fireworks display lighting up the night sky at midnight.  A great celebration for locals and internationals from around the world. Join the celebrations in the most picturesque surroundings. Free to attend!"

Rhythm and Alps - "The South Island's largest and best dressed music festival is on again December."

Sport Events

For all those athletes among us, there is plenty to keep you busy too.

The Ruby Swim - "From the very competitive 3.8km Big Ruby swim to the 200m Little Gem for the kids - these races are designed to offer a challenging but achievable event. No excuses - if you can swim then you can do The Ruby."

The Big Easy - "But it's not all downhill, with a reasonably hard climb at Sally's Pinch and some quite challenging rutty and rocky downhill bits but the views are more than worth it and the sense of accomplishment at the end will make it all worthwhile."

Sovereign Tri Series - "In its 7th year running, the Wanaka Festival will be part of the 2017 New Year vibes. The off road run and breath-taking views of the mountain ranges will give you the ultimate tri experience."
