Spacious, fun and perfect for all the family – this beautiful private villa sits on a 15-acre property with a huge carefully nurtured garden and promises a fantastic relaxing stay for guests looking for the perfect luxury accommodation in Wanaka.

Just a very short drive (8-minutes) from central Wanaka, Kōhatu has been designed with very high attention to detail, and using only the finest materials, featuring beautiful wooden beams and locally sourced Otago schist. Large floor to ceiling windows makes the most of the mountain views that surround this stunning vacation rental, and the whole feel of the property is a rustic yet beautiful modern design. ‘Kōhatu’ aptly translates to precious stone or rock.

Accommodating up to fourteen guests,  in four double rooms and a bunkroom it is fabulous for families or a large group travelling together.  Multiple living areas, a foodies dream kitchen, large dining table and three open fireplaces ensure comfort and ease in your home away from home. We picture you sitting around the fire with your family or friends after a day of activities, delicious local pinot noir in hand, kids still outside enjoying the on-site private pool or tennis court, while a private chef prepares delicious canapes and dinner.

Kōhatu will tempt you never to leave the grounds! You’ll be well entertained with a heated private swimming pool (summer months only), mountain-view spa pool, outdoor tennis courts, an underground movie theatre with a table football and pool table, petanque pitch, surround sound music systems, in-ground trampoline and an outdoor pizza oven. 

Winter guests can enjoy quick easy access to local Cardrona ski area (one of the best family mountains in the country) and also Treble Cone or if you want a really adventurous experience, enjoy a heli-skiing trip in Wanaka, with a pick up directly on site.

We know this beautiful holiday home will delight adults and children alike, and if you can bear to tear yourself away from the home and its facilities, it is the perfect luxury accommodation from which to explore Wanaka and the Central Otago region.
