About this Holiday House

Idyllic getaway to explore the magic of a beautiful wonderland. Welcome to our little piece of paradise! In winter we are as close as you can get to the snow- without staying on the mountain, in summer close to streams, walks, lakes and mountains. The peaceful beauty of Cardrona Valley is the perfect location to escape and experience a fantastic array of activities at your doorstep – or simply relax and unwind in the comfort of Cardrona Sanctuary. This home is tastefully appointed with high quality furniture and appliances for your comfort and pleasure. Downstairs you will find the well equipped kitchen featuring double-drawer dishwasher, microwave, electric oven and cooktop, and fridge/freezer (all stainless steel). The dining area provides comfortable seating for 4 people (as pictured), or can easily be extended to accommodate 6-7 people. The adjacent lounge features a superb open fire-place with 2 comfortable leather sofas, an LCD TV and blue-ray/dvd/cd/iPod surround sound system and free internet/WiFi. Floor heating and a reverse cycle heat pump (air conditioner) assist the fire to keep the home at a perfect temperature even during a severe mid-winter chill. Three bedrooms (2 double, 1 single/study) are located upstairs while 1 bedroom (2 single beds) is found downstairs. All beds are fitted with electric blankets on luxurious innerspring mattress/base ensembles with linen and bedding supplied. The remote control garage has parking for one along with laundry facilities, washer, dryer and an indoor clothesline. Ample additional off-road parking is also available. Cardrona Sanctuary is just a 2 minutes drive from the Cardrona and Snow Park/Snow Farm ski fields’ access roads. The famous, historic Cardrona Pub is only a 400m walk away and provides great après-ski during winter, welcome cold drinks in summer and fabulous food all year round. The valley is also great for walking/jogging and mountain bike riding and is well known for the local horse trekking activities. Queenstown is a scenic 40 minute drive away – with all the adrenaline filled activities it is well known for (bungy jumping, jet boating, canyon swinging, sky diving etc), while Wanaka is only 15 minutes away. Both towns offer a great variety of dining, shopping and gallery experiences while vineyards, golf courses, additional ski fields and many other popular attractions all add to the allure of the area.

Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

The famous, historic Cardrona Pub is only a 400m walk away. The stream across the road kept our kids entertained for hours (supervised) and the walking/jogging and mountain bike riding help to generally relax. Local horse trekking activities and Cardrona Adventure Park (quad bikes, monster trucks etc) are just minutes away - and of course the ski-fields access roads are less than 2 km down the road!

Nice and comfortable home.
Baryalai Waziri
Nice and wonderful house in a wonderful location. We love Cardrona Valley, that is why we booked again there. The owner is nice and communicates well. Highly recommended.
We have just got home from a weekend away at the Cardrona Sanctuary. We were a group of 7 people and this house worked perfectly. On arrival the house was beautiful, clean and items were left as per the prior instruction emails. It had plenty of room, even though we were a large group, and with 2 bathrooms it meant showering ect was not a problem. The house had everything you could want or need and therefore made stay and cooking there a breeze! We did eat one of the nights are the hotel just down the road, the house was within easy walking distance and the experience at the hotel was fabulous. We will definitely be staying again!!
