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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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. (*Small donation to cover LPG costs)

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.

Amanda & Randall with their kid Dexter are very nice & kind souls. The family sang me a birthday song, having known that my birthday falls during my stay with them. As I arrived in the late evening, they even ask me to join for for dinner. Amanda made bread for my next day breakfast. The homemade bread was very nice! Randall had introduce me around & gave me tips & advice around their place.And I really enjoyed talking to their kid Dexter. He's so adorable. The secluded cottage is very neat & clean. They even allow me to pick apples from their trees. They made me feel at home. My stay there was definitely a great & fruitful experience that I'll remember for very long. I really appreciate the hospitality that they had given me during my stay. I'm still missing them. Until I check in with them again!

Wow! And I mean wow! What a special place we got to stay at. I cannot recommend this place enough. The location is so beautifully scenic, you feel hidden away from the rest of the world. The accomodation was clean and we loved the use of cooking facilities outside - we spent many hours sitting on the deck drinking cups of tea in the sunshine. And of course Amanda and Randall.... such welcoming and friendly hosts. They were willing to help with all our needs, great to chat to and made our stay there so lovely. Thank you so much for such a wonderful weekend :)

Amanda and Randall's place was lovely! My husband and I stayed two nights but wish we could have stayed longer. The room was perfect for us and the bed was comfy! Amanda was very kind and hospitable and made us feel at home. Not to mention, the views from the property are like no other!! You will definitely want to stay here!

Randall and Amanda's place was in a very quiet, peaceful setting. It was very relaxing and we felt pampered when we received the homemade bread!

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.
