What our customers say

  • "What a wonderful property. Beautifully positioned overlooking Lake Wanaka and with stunning mountain views. If you're after some privacy, get away from it all and completely relax, then look no further. The house is gorgeous and very comfy. I would highly recommend this place to everyone and will certainly be returning one day."
