Sweeping views across one of New Zealand’s famous lakes towards the snow-tipped Southern Alps, awaits your arrival at The Dacha – a spectacular private home to suit any season.

This ultra-luxury bolthole on the South Island is worth flying to the other side of the world for. The Dacha, which overlooks the serene Lake Wanaka, invites you to leave the modern world behind and reconnect with nature.

The cool, airy design features a soaring vaulted ceiling and clerestory window. It has been created to enhance the sublime scenery at your feet which can be warmed with geothermal underfloor heating.

A wall of bi-fold doors opens onto a wide deck and swimming pool which allows you to breathe in the beauty around you. Inside, you will find a haven bathed in natural light and dotted with artworks.

The Dacha consists of a spacious master suite, with bed overlooking the lake, and a four-bedroom guest wing which includes two further bunk rooms to suit your party’s needs.

The Lookout, a schist-paved outdoor social area, is perfect for joining guests during a private party for a glass of Cloudy Bay’s Sauvignon Blanc as the sun sets over the mountains.

After a day of skiing, kayaking, boating, or paddleboarding – depending on the season - your personal chef will ensure you dine on organic dishes.

Your personal concierge will be on hand to make the most of your day. Thrill-seekers can go heli-skiing while those seeking to unwind could take a cruise on the shimmering lake followed by a wine tour of the award-winning vineyards.
