Wanaka is a year-round destination. Its settled climate provides a ready supply of clear skies and warm temperatures. While Wanaka’s spectacular setting and its proximity to Mt Aspiring National Park make it ideal for outdoor recreation, there are many other ways to appreciate the township and the surrounding area.
Charming and stylish, Wanaka Cottage is set in private, landscaped gardens with magnificent mountain views of the South Island’s snow-capped mountains and glaciers.
Wanaka Cottage sits on the edge of 20 acres of residential parkland just off the Cardrona Valley Road. Just across the road, 300m away, are 2 superb evening dining restaurants as well as a Florence’s Cafe which is ideal for breakfast, brunch, lunch or barista coffee.
Lake Wanaka’s vibrant lakefront, cafes, shops and restaurants are only 2 minutes away by car (or an easy 20 minute walk) from Wanaka Cottage.
Treble Cone and Cardrona ski resorts are only 30-40 minute drive away.
Spectacular Milford Sound is 50 minutes away by scenic flight and Queenstown airport a 45-minute drive.
Relax in peace and quiet, and enjoy Wanaka!
