Where you’ll be

Wanaka, S, New Zealand

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. Hillhaven 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.

I am a happy long term 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 partner Chud I have a lot of fun in the outdoors - lakes, mountains, valleys, rivers and beaches. All of these are our playground. At home we build things - we have 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 accommodation. We live part time in a yurt at the top of the lift. It gives me much pleasure to share the chalets we have built with good folks from around New Zealand and the globe - and wish only for them that they can relax and take pleasure in the beauty we enjoy every day.
