Because our chemical-free pool is within the living area, children are never far from your watchful eye. Windows in the sauna allow parents to rejuvenate while children play. Glass doors between the pool and the living room keep noise to a minimum should you prefer to relax next to the stone fireplace with a glass of wine.
The gardens allow immediate access to Lake Wanaka for family outings and strolls. Pack a picnic hamper filled with gourmet food and cosy blankets.
Wanaka Lakehouse is also the perfect hub for a ski or snowboarding holiday with the family, on two of the best downhill ski fields in the country. Both within easy access, Cardrona is totally family-oriented and Treble Cone, while also family-friendly, offers more advanced terrain. Both fields offer family lessons in skiing and snowboarding, as well as freestyle camps, from some of the top Olympic level instructors in the world!
After a full day on the ski fields, relax by the fire and create your own pizza for cooking in our soapstone pizza oven. The oven creates a hub in the centre of the house for family dinner gatherings in a cosy environment complete with a large plasma Blue Ray TV, DVD player and audio system.
If you can tear yourself away from the house, Wanaka offers a host of family-friendly activities. Kids will love the mind-boggling 3D maze at Puzzling World or the indoor climbing wall at Basecamp and Lonestar. In the evening visit Cinema Paradiso or Ruby’s Cinema for incredibly unique movie experiences. Seating is on lovely comfy couches, complete with freshly baked cookies during intermission. Parents can also enjoy a glass of wine.
Join us at Wanaka Lakehouse for a truly memorable family holiday experience.
