Piwakawaka Villa is set on the shores of Lake Wanaka with the backdrop of the Southern Alps.
Piwakawaka Point, a new luxury villa, has been established near Wanaka by accommodation and experiences company Major Domo.
This grand holiday residence can house up to 14 residents in what has been describ ed as a “a truly rare and beautiful villa that promises to impress the most discerning guests”.
The location of this substantial architectural masterpiece is unrivalled – on the shores of Lake Wanaka with six kilometres of lake front access. It is within 20 minutes’ by road from the popular, all-season destination of Wanaka in New Zealand’s South Island, and within easy helicopter access to popular destinations such as Queenstown, Milford Sound, Mt Aspiring and Fiordland national parks.
The 1300 square metre home is available for exclusive-use hire to accommodate 14 guests in six beautifully designed and appointed bedrooms.
Piwakawaka Point nestles into the natural alpine landscape with 360-degree uninterrupted views of Lake Wanaka and the mountains of nearby Mt Aspiring National Park.
The connection with the landscape has been maintained throughout the design of the interior with locally sourced stone, handsome wooden beams, and extensive use of floor-to-ceiling glass to capture the surrounding views and the native bush planted around the home.
The homestead is is set amidst 330 acres of private land and includes a huge array of entertainment. Piwakawaka Point guests can enjoy a tennis court, stables and dressage arena, oversized spa pool, petanque, croquet, frisbee golf, kilometres of private trails and lakefront, and access to stand-up-paddle boards and kayaks. Combine these options with the offerings inside – a cellar and wine tasting room, sauna, full gym, library, and media and games room.
MajorDomo co-founder and director, Fiona Stevens, says that the private location and facilities rival those normally only offered by luxury lodges.
“We anticipate that our guests will also appreciate the helipad for easy access, and the on-site host and separate butler’s kitchen for convenient and seamless stays.
“This is a rare property where discerning guests can truly escape in complete privacy, immerse themselves in New Zealand’s beauty and relax in absolute luxury,” she said.
The master bedroom at Piwakawaka Villa looks out over Lake Wanaka and the Southern Alps.
All luxury properties must have a cosy library where guests can get lost in a book.
