How's the serenity? Our freshly renovated family and pet friendly holiday home is located in established, leafy Wanaka. Conveniently located, it's perfect for both snow ski and summer lakeside holidays. /
Be one of the first families to stay in this NEW to the holiday market property.

The space

Ideal for large extended or two families to share. The house is set up to keep kids busy playing with an indoor toy cave, outdoor swing set and large backyard to run around in.
All spaces are discrete and can be closed off. Kids play areas are visible so you can keep one eye on them yet separate enough to give you some well-earned space to relax and chat.
Our huge backyard is available for BBQ's, footy and cricket games
Feel free to pick the fruit trees and take veggies/herbs from the veggie patches
Enjoy the BBQ and entertain on the deck overlooking the mountains.

Guest access

The mezzanine chill-out lounge space has a balcony with mountain and lake views - with a fold out sofa bed (for that one extra guest), a toy cave - fully stocked with bean bags and toys for small children plus a full bookshelf for adults.
Child safe - we can set up a childproof gate for the stairs, gate for the fireplace, provide a highchair, spare car seat and a fold away cot. (on request)
The 4th Bedroom is a very large space located over the double car garage - it has an en-suite, queen size fold out sofa bed (comfy memory foam) and either a Super King bed or 2 Single beds depending on your needs.
Dogs are welcome outside in the secure backyard or in the garage - a dog bed is provided in the garage. We appreciate you cleaning up your best friends doggy dos, keeping your dog outside/garaged and quiet. We can provide the local kennel details if your dog is not coping with it's holiday environment.

This is a truly lovely home, newly renovated, with great views over the mountains and Lake Wanaka from upstairs bedrooms. The kitchen is large and welcoming, with a big dining table and a lot of space for cooking and eating. The living room is cosy and comfy, with a wood-fire stove for winter days. Bedrooms are all different, with great views and large beds. You are at 5-minute drive from Wanaka's main street, restaurants, and shops, and the beach. In 40 minutes, you will be up the mountains for skiing in Cardrona and Snow Farm. The hosts are wonderful, always available, and very accommodating. This is a great home for a family or friend vacation. Highly recommended.

What can we say? The Chalet was centrally located and beautifully presented. We had an amazing time in Wanaka but every evening we looked forward to coming back and spending time in this warm and inviting home. There were 7 of us including three teenagers, a mother-in-law and a 20-something and we had plenty of space to be together, to chilll out and to cook.
