About this Holiday House

Riverside is an unique property set beside the Clutha River, with crystal-clear water and world-class trout fishing. Step out of the Homestead’s gardens and straight on to the river track, perfect for hiking or biking to Lake Wanaka, or a short stroll downstream to the finest patisserie in Wanaka, as well as a pub and supermarket. This stunning villa sits on 2 acres of land and features a huge greenhouse, veggie gardens, a berry garden and chickens for fresh eggs every day. Sit out on the patio by the characterful outdoor fire area and enjoy a glass of wine listening to the rush of the river, or, on a hot summer’s day, relax under the shaded verandah with a good book and a G&T. The interiors of this luxury holiday home radiate character and provide a comfortable and welcoming space in a private and tranquil setting. It features 4 bedrooms, 3 living areas and 3.5 bathrooms making it the perfect holiday rental home for a large family. The villa is a homage to travel. The owners have travelled far and wide and have collected artefacts from around the world. Many fascinating antiques and art are displayed throughout the property creating a gallery of global voyages, evoking thoughts of remote lands and adventures. Every room has something interesting to ponder and contemplate, especially the Billiards Room, which is full to the brim of fascinating travel history, furnishings and rare artefacts. The bedrooms are no exception to the interesting finds, with majestic antique four poster beds sourced from India and the walls decorated with evocative travel photography and antique maps. Riverside is an experience, not just a place to lay your head. You will be taken on a journey around the globe, then returned to your luxury home in one of the most tranquil and beautiful places in New Zealand. Perfect for families.
