Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Anakawa is a unique Eco Retreat offering space, tranquility & breathtaking views. Nestled alongside our straw-bale home, amid 12 acres of gardens & fields, the property is entirely powered by the sun. A haven of calm, yet less than an hour from Queenstown & driving distance to Milford Sound. A simple kitchen with gas cooker & fridge is attached, along with private toilet & shower. Paradise for garden lovers, eco enthusiasts, fisherman, stargazers or anyone looking to unplug & re-charge!

The space
Living entirely off-grid is a unique and deeply fulfilling experience. At Anakawa, we embrace a peaceful lifestyle that is in harmony with nature - and we welcome those drawn to the same.

Guest access
We invite you to make the most of the spacious setting and find a spot to lie in the grass and listen to the birds. Or perhaps you prefer to take the River Walk - a 10 minute stroll leading you right to the edge of the Mataura River.

Other things to note
We love our off-grid, eco lifetsyle but appreciate it isn't for everyone. Please take a moment to consider the following before booking: Anakawa is entirely solar-powered so it is necessary to be mindful of power consumption throughout your stay. Sensible use of water is also expected. The kitchen and bathroom are accessed off the verandah. And of course, this is a rural setting - there are no street lights....but plenty of stars!

Location

Kingston, Southland, New Zealand

Although officially listed as Kingston we are closer to the township of Garston , just 1 km away. Here you will find a great coffee caravan, a beautiful antique furniture store and some of the best brown trout fishing in the world! Kingston, and the shore of Lake Wakatipu, is 15 minute drive. We are within minutes of both the Round the Mountain and Welcome Rock Cycle Trails. By car it is 45 minutes to Queenstown Airport, an hour and a quarter to Te Anau, a comfortable 3 hours to Milford Sound and less than 2 hours to the Stewart Island Ferry.
