As I sit writing this looking out to the mountains, lake and sunshine with not another person in sight, I think, this is not a bad place to be during the current situation around the world due to COVID-19.
We live in Wanaka, New Zealand and we are very lucky to be stuck here. This small town, basically in the middle of nowhere, is the ideal location for isolation. There are endless places to escape and be on your own out in the fresh mountain air. The calm autumn weather is perfect for lake adventures and the cooler temperatures are perfect for getting on your hiking boots or jumping in the saddle. I read recently that in the 1900’s, fresh air and sunshine were key to recovering from a virus. Wanaka offers both of those things pretty much everyday.
You definitely won’t be bored here. The ever changing scenery will be enough to entertain you everyday and you wouldn’t have to move a muscle. If you want to get out and about, the adventures haven’t stopped. Private heli charters can take you into the wilderness to walk, bike, paddle board, kayak or sit on a mountain top and have a gourmet lunch, while still isolating yourself from other people.
If you are visiting New Zealand and cannot get out of the country or you live here and want a break, we would definitely recommend Wanaka as a place to take time out. Come and reset and reflect and ride out this crazy global storm. Getting here is still possible, drive in a private vehicle, helicopter or private jet.
We have some ideal properties for you and your family to sit tight in during this uncertain time, all of which offer outdoor areas giving you access to plenty of fresh mountain air. We can help organise private transport, grocery deliveries, private spa treatments within your home and adventures into the mountains. We have large homes that can fit the whole family and we can negotiate a weekly rate. Use this time to regroup with the family, spend some quality time together and make lifetime memories. If you would like more information about which properties we have available for long term stays you can contact us here.
