About our home

We offer a spacious and beautifully designed home (10 years old) on 2/3 of an acre and have spectacular and uninterrupted views of Lake Wanaka and the Southern Alps. We are on the waters edge of Lake Wanaka and have a lovely beach, where one can swim and frolic in the Summer months. Our garden surrounds us. We have developed it with emphasis on growing vegetables, fruit, nut and olive trees. We are lucky to have ainherited a 60 year old Oak tree, on which we have a swing for children.

We offer 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms for use. One bedroom is self contained with an ensuite and a lounge with a kitchenette, with tea and coffee making facilities. The second bedroom is loft style and can accommodate up to 4 people. It has a queen size bed and two singles. There is a Indoor Pool with Badu jets (flow system)if you really want to get a work out! We also have a large study and a library. Our kitchen is well equipped for those who enjoy the culinary arts.

Our garden has a swing for the younger children and a sizeable lawn under a very old oak tree. We have a couple of outdoor seating area with grand views of the lake and Southern Alps.

More about us

  1. We are Glenn and Sukhi and are now semi-retired with adult, independent children. We have traveled extensively during our working life (professional sport and local government) but still keep ourselves involved with many things in our community. We have had several successful exchanges in the last 7 years to France, Italy and Autralia. We love traveling and experiencing places through the eyes of the locals, rather than just passing through as tourists. We love learning about different cultures, languages and histories. Lately we have also been exploring our own Country New Zealand!

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Ideally located, we are 6 kms from Wanaka Township and on the doorstep of Mount Aspiring National Park. You can have a lovely walk on the lakes edge in quiet surroundings, or take our mountain bikes to the source of the Clutha River where it leaves the lake.

The Wanaka area is an all year round tourist destination with a distnctive laid back atmosphere. It offers a host of activities like snow skiing, cross country skiing, hiking, boating, fishing, sky diving, flying, water rafting, camping and golf. We have 50 plus vineyards and wineries within an hours drive. Some of our pinot noirs are world famous.
You can either settle into an unhurried and relaxing way of life or take the opportunity of an action packed outdoor adventure. Or do a mix of both! There’s no shortage of activities for all ages on land, on water or in the air. For the size of the town (7,000 permanents) it has a very good selection of restaurants, although the night life is limited, but Queenstown is only an hour away for those that need it.
