The Dacha

The living area of The Dacha main lodge consists of an open-plan kitchen, dining room and lounge area. This 177 sqm living area features a soaring 4.8 metre vaulted ceiling and clerestory window to create a sense of space and light enhancing the view before you.

The lounge has an impressive schist clad fireplace which in winter casts an ambient glow over the comfortable lounging options with the mountains dominating the horizon across the lake. A perfect environment for guests to relax and share stories with a drink in hand by firelight.

In summer the wall of glass bi-fold doors can be opened, allowing the inside of the home to flow seamlessly out onto the large outside deck giving stunning 180 degree views of Lake Wanaka and the mountains beyond.

The extensive decking to enjoy the scenery is complemented by The Lookout, a schist paved outdoor social area with seating giving guests panoramic views of the lake and mountains. The Lookout will quickly become the natural meeting spot for morning coffee, wine and cheese afternoons or cocktail hour.

  • A professional grade kitchen facility equipped with Miele appliances and a separate fully resourced galley.

When fully enclosed it simply provides a spacious second living area complete with its large open fire place and pizza oven.
