This large 40m2 sunny room and en suite is the top floor of our house with own entrance and a private patio and garden for you to relax in.

Fantastic views. Relaxing place a little distance from town but worth it for the secluded location.

This space is wonderful - private, quiet, quirky and with wonderful views! There is everything you need and just a 5 minute drive to Wanaka for the lake, cafes and restaurants. Mags was really friendly and helpful with suggestions for walks to try and great restaurants. Very highly recommended.

We found the whole place and the view to be amazing!! This was a very last minute booking and were so grateful to Mags and Bruce for being so accommodating at such short notice. We felt very much welcomed in to the place and looked after. We also loved waking up in the morning to a breathtaking mountain view. Everything was provided. If you are staying in the area, this room and host will not disappoint! We would recommend this to our friends and would definately stay again.

I loved staying at this accommodation, to be surrounded by that view every day is wonderful, and Mags the perfect host. I have so few concerns to share. Access is by a steep staircase through the garden, so this will not suit everyone. Not for those who wish to self cater for meals, other than to prepare a simple breakfast, but basic breakfast items were supplied, so was fine for me.

Mags User ProfileMags is a superhost.

I am originally from Denmark and have been lucky to call beautiful Wanaka my home for the past 12 years. I’m passionate about the outdoors, and the lifestyle of exploring the mountains, the lake and the playgrounds they provide. For work, I organise sports and music events so able to channel my passion in to work.

My partner Bruce and I designed and built our home 5 years ago from natural materials with an environmentally friendly ethos. Bruce is a builder, designer and artist. We have an old friendly sheep dog called Ellie. Travel and adventure are big parts of our lives and we really enjoy meeting and sharing our space with good people from all corners of the world. We hope to meet with you soon!
