Spectacular new ultra-luxury lakeside villa revealed at Wanaka

Spectacular Piwakawaka Point at Wanaka is New Zealand’s latest ultra-luxury private villa accommodation.

New Zealand luxury accommodation and experiences company, MajorDomo has added a spectacular new ultra-luxury villa - Piwakawaka Point near Wanaka - to its collection of high-end holiday homes.

In an alpine lakeside setting, Piwakawaka Point will provide a grand holiday residence for up to 14 occupants in “a truly rare and beautiful villa that promises to impress the most discerning guests”.

The location of this substantial architectural masterpiece is unrivalled – on the shores of Lake Wanaka with six kilometres of lake front access. It is within 20 minutes’ by road from the popular, all-season destination of Wanaka in New Zealand’s South Island, and within easy helicopter access to popular destinations such as Queenstown, Milford Sound, Mt Aspiring and Fiordland national parks.

The 1300 square metre home is available for exclusive-use hire to accommodate 14 guests in six beautifully designed and appointed bedrooms.

Piwakawaka Point nestles into the natural alpine landscape with 360-degree uninterrupted views of Lake Wanaka and the mountains of nearby Mt Aspiring National Park. The connection with the landscape has been maintained throughout the design of the interior with locally sourced stone, handsome wooden beams, and extensive use of floor-to-ceiling glass to capture the surrounding views and the native bush planted around the home. 

Over 330 acres of private domain, guests at Piwakawaka Point can enjoy a tennis court, stables and dressage arena, oversized spa pool, petanque, croquet, frisbee golf, kilometres of private trails and lakefront, and access to stand-up-paddle boards and kayaks. Combine these options with the offerings inside - a cellar and wine tasting room, sauna, full gym, library, and media and games room – and guests will never lack for choice of entertainment.

MajorDomo co-founder and director, Fiona Stevens, says that the private location and facilities rival those normally only offered by luxury lodges.

“We anticipate that our guests will also appreciate the helipad for easy access, and the on-site host and separate butler’s kitchen for convenient and seamless stays. This is a rare property where discerning guests can truly escape in complete privacy, immerse themselves in New Zealand’s beauty and relax in absolute luxury,” she said.

“We’ve seen an increasing number of discerning travellers (especially multigenerational families) coming to New Zealand, who desire the privacy and flexibility that exclusive hire of an entire home offers them.”

Piwakawaka Point villa is now available for exclusive-use bookings. Included in each stay is an on-site host, daily housekeeping, concierge service, luxury linen and bathroom amenities, general pantry provisions, fresh flowers and, of course, a glass of Central Otago wine on arrival.

MajorDomo’s concierge service also offers an infinite list of in-villa services such as private chef, massage, yoga and catering, as well as an array of bespoke off-site activities.
