We can help you with local places to visit - cafes, restaurants, movie theaters, wineries and day excursions. You can be as private as you want but we are always delighted to share our local knowledge with you.
The Beacon Point Road area has some very interesting modern homes and several have won NZ architecture awards. Many of these houses can be seen from the lakeside walk or along Beacon Point Road.
You will need your own car. It is a 3 minute drive into town and if you enjoy walking then it is a lovely lakeside walk or a ride that takes about 30 minutes.
There is an electric bike available for you to use.

My husband and I are documentary filmmakers who have worked and filmed all over the world. We run our company from our home in Wanaka but these days we are very reluctant to leave our idyllic setting of garden, mountains, and lake. We have three children in their 20's and now that they have left home we are turning our attention to hosting Airbnb and working more in the Southern Lakes. It is a magical place and we have loved our ten plus years here. Prior to that we lived in Sydney for twenty years. I am an Australian and my husband is a New Zealander with a lifelong passion for the mountains and valleys of the South Island. We really look forward to telling you about our special places in and around Wanaka. We've always enjoyed having people in our home, and in the cottage, including many international guests.
