The Yurt

The scenic location & off-the-grid property make this a unique experience. It's spacious and open, complete with French doors & tinted skylight to watch the stars from the comfort your bed. You'll be at a highest point on our property, and feel on top of the world. A little off the beaten track yet only 8mins to Lake Hawea & 20 to Wanaka. Kerosene-lamps, candles, homemade bread & jam all add to make this a special experience (Excellent wifi included)

The Place

This is "Glamping" at it's best - sustainable living, with just oil lamps and candles for lighting. There is an outlet for charging devices.  Excellent WiFi and a gas heater keeps the yurt nice and toasty. Please note - the bathroom is a recently built separate shower and toilet block, down some stairs - about 20m from the yurt.This will be shared with max. 2 other guests if the bungalow is booked at the same time. Otherwise, it's all yours.  At present we are providing a small 2-burner gas cooker for heating tea/coffee and making basic meals, a  private bbq a as well as a cooler box for milk and food. We bake homemade bread for you on your first night. Granola/Cornflakes, milk, tea and coffee are provided as well.

Guest Access

Roam our wonderful 8-acre organic farm, jump on the trampoline, rest in the hammock and sit on any benches you find to soak up the views. Feel free to pick a few apples and apricots and even almonds when in season.
Although you'll have water and cooking facilities in the yurt, you'll have access to a sink at the back of our house to do dishes.

The Neighbourhood

We're at the end of a small dirt road, with a few neighbors off in the distance. So we're quite private, but close enough to Wanaka so you don't miss out on the action. Lake Hawea, a 10 minute drive offers a choice of two great restaurants and a surprisingly well stocked corner store, and the stunning lake is great for walking, picnics, skimming rocks or going for a swim in summer! There are a number of excellent hikes within minutes - inc. the Brest Hill leg of the  Te Araroa Trail, Mt Grandview, Isthmus Peak, Corner peak and many more. 

 

Location

The yurt is located on the highest point on Mountain Spirit's property, overlooking Lake Hawea and Wanaka/Hawea, with views of Black Peak and Aspiring National Park. Please note there are what we call the 'Inka Stairs' - a stone staircase up to the yurt, approx 20 step
