About this listing
Welcome to peace and paradise. Recently renovated off-the-grid bungalow. Easy 20min to Wanaka, 10min to Lake Hawea. We're off the beaten track with great views & walks. A newly finished, heated bathroom/shower building is adjacent and a few steps outside your bungalow . Great for individuals, couples, or a small family.
A very quiet getaway with off-the-grid power and mountain spring-fed water. A lovely place to unwind if you're just passing through or coming to this area for skiing, climbing, tramping, biking or just enjoying the views. Although we're "off the grid", there's plenty of solar power to go around.
You'll have access to our land, great views, your own lawn/garden area with picnic table and grill, there's a mountain bike to peddle around the neighboring roads, and our relaxing hammock, a trampoline, Adirondack chairs, and an optional* outside heated bathtub.

Interaction with guests
Kia Ora! We enjoy meeting guests from all over the world. We are both travelers and between us, we speak English,German, French, Spanish and Danish and little bit of Maori.
We are kid friendly as well. We have a 5 yr old boy who loves people. We aim to be mindful in thought, action and like to have fun, and help our guests to know the area by sharing what we know.
Other things to note
We have a brand new heated bathroom building right next to your bungalow with a great shower, changing area, and separate toilet. A new heater has just been installed in your room as well. The kitchen is outside and undercover on the bungalow verandah with hot and cold running water, a cooler (chilly bin), and all cooking items you'll need. It functions well but is a bit dependent on wind conditions.
We are creating a retreat centre here at Mountain Spirit. Our main house is our family home, but please don't hesitate to knock on the door if you have any questions! We're here to help, with travel ideas, things to do in the area, directions, and of course anything to make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable. Our premises are smoke-free (for fire danger and health reasons).

Amanda and I are starting Mountain Spirit near Wanaka, NZ. It's a secluded sanctuary (B&B), a Retreat Centre, and off-the-grid organic farm. We will run a variety of programs that help connect people to the natural environment, each other and a deeper connection to themselves.
