Relax at The Stone Cottage. Wander through the rambling garden to the lake; bbq beneath the stars or hang out in hammocks over rolling lawns. Peaceful hideaway 7 mins from town. Bellbirds & fantails, inspiring vibe, ideal for those wanting a getaway.
The Stone Cottage at Dublin Bay was originally built as a holiday home by Annabel's grandparents Buster and Marsie Wilson and has always been a much-loved destination for her family. The Cottage now houses a loft apartment and a studio apartment upstairs where guests stay. You are fully self-contained up there with kitchen, breakfast provisions provided in the fridge, TV, music, a discerning film collection, books and magazines. The apartment has its own wooden balcony and chairs and you can see the lake from the comfort of your queen size bed. The house is secluded and surrounded by a wild spring and autumn garden. A four-minute stroll will take you down to Lake Wanaka, ideal for swimming with its sandy beach and framed, as always in New Zealand, by a background of mountains. When not chilling out in the garden or fishing on the lake, many of Annabel’s guests enjoy the outdoor pursuits for which Wanaka is increasingly famed: skiing, snowboarding, paddleboarding, rockclimbing, mountain biking. A family of four lives downstairs - you'll probably meet them in the garden. Access is via the wooden stairs at the side of the house where you can park your car.
Barbeque, deck chairs and sun loungers, three hammocks, mountain bikes, giant hoopla hoops, slack line, pétanque, badminton, croquet, board games, cards.
Annabel is available to give you some local insights into the Central Otago district and can offer a tour of the local mountains in winter.
Here at The Loft @The Stone Cottage, you're just four minute's walk through the garden and native manuka to the lakeshore. Dublin Bay is a great place to get away any time of year. It's family friendly; a gorgeous spot for boating, swimming, mountain biking or wandering beside the lake through manuka forest towards the Clutha river outlet. Overlooking Treble Cone and Black Peak, you'll be first to know when there's a fresh snowfall in winter as Wanaka's local ski and snowboarding mountains Treble Cone and Cardrona are only a 45 minute drive away.
You'll need a car because the home is just 7 minutes' drive from Wanaka township.
Disponible para huéspedes
