Wanaka is a unique and beautiful place - outstanding visual landscapes in every direction. We are located on a hill which gives a grandstand view of jaw dropping, spectacular scenery. Hill Haven is in a residential area, close to town for meals at great restaurants or shopping, and direct access to walking and biking tracks. We are close to Lake Wanaka and the outlet of the mighty Clutha River for swimming or fishing.

There is no public transport in Wanaka, but there is a local taxi service if you need one. A private and safe outdoor carpark is provided.

When you arrive don't be surprised if there is any building equipment in the driveway. Where you are going to be staying is well away from any disruption we promise.

If you're after a serene getaway with amenities, a luxurious bath, stunning scenery but are sick of the same old boring apartment/hotel room- I strongly recommend Keri's place. The cabins are located conveniently close to town (7 mins drive) but are built high and far away enough to feel like you're in the wilderness. They are HAND-BUILT by Keri and her partner and are named after each material used. Although simple in design they keep all the amenities necessary for daily luxury to ensure you're feeling spoilt. From waking up with a gorgeous view of the lake to Breakfast made in your kitchenette (with tea and coffee satchets) and yoga on the balcony overlooking the Wanaka lake, there were so many special moments here. The bath-tub overlooking the mountains was incredible for a taste of the local ciders, brews and wines and star-gazing. The shower with warmed towel rack and coconut scented toiletries was also a lovely touch.

Keri's place is one of the best Airbnb experiences I've ever had. This place has an incredible view, is super clean, very comfortable and has all the necessary amenities (even though it's small in size). And then there is Keri herself: she was a wonderful host, communication with her was very easy, and she even answered our questions days after our stay when we were no longer her guests but needed local tips!

Fantastic place to get away and relax, while still being close to everything Wanaka has to offer. Keri was so welcoming and helpful in getting us settled. From the balcony views to the open air bathtub to the electric blanket on the bed, this place has everything you need to feel rejuvenated. The soaps provided made by a NZ company were a great touch! Absolutely recommend!

This is an outstanding place! A dreamy location and view close into town. Keri was such an amazing host super friendly and helpful. We got some great walking track ideas from her and then got to ease or sore legs in there outdoor tub! This place is ten times more impressive than any hotel cannot wait to come back here and see Keri again!

I am a happy longterm resident of this beautiful small town called Wanaka - a jewel in the southern mountains of New Zealand. I am passionate about the landscape I inhabit and with my darling partner Chud I have alot of fun in the outdoors - lakes, mountains, valleys, rivers and beaches. All of these are our playground. At home we build things - we have recently completed a small 80 metre railway to the top of our property which will carry you and your luggage up the hillside to reach your accomodation. I teach yoga on the property several days a week, and we like to dance with our marvellous friends, young and old. It gives me much pleasure to share the cabins we have built with good folks from around the globe - and wish only for them that they can relax and take pleasure in the beauty we enjoy every day.
