With a huge range of great restaurants, cafes, and world-class vineyards nearby, your stay at Kohatu will definitely be memorable. You can also easily explore Mt Aspiring National Park and take on one of the many walking tracks, go kayaking and paddle boarding on Lake Wanaka or enjoy skiing and snowboarding during the winter months.

Back at your accommodation, you and your group can play tennis on your own private court, take a refreshing dip in the heated swimming pool or have a fun and delicious pizza party with the help of the outdoor pizza oven. After a day of activities, you can relax and snuggle up by the fire with a glass of pinot noir in hand or have a movie night with everyone in the underground theatre.

‘Kohatu’, which aptly translates to precious stone or rock, features Central Otago stones throughout the home to provide a rustic yet beautiful modern design. This luxurious and stylishly appointed home also features a generous open plan living and dining area with a cosy fireplace, comfy lounges, and an elegant dining table. The spacious kitchen boasts a sleek breakfast bar, modern appliances, and everything you need during your stay.

In addition, Kohatu features two more living spaces with fireplaces, ensuring there is plenty of room for relaxation and entertaining. There is also an underground theatre and game room that includes a foosball table and a pool table.

Step outside the floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors in the main living area and you will find an outdoor entertaining area that comes complete with several lounges, a fire pit, and a petanque pit. Further along, the manicured garden is a heated swimming pool with a spa pool and timber deck. Kohatu also boasts its own private tennis court and an in-ground trampoline for the kids.

Sleeping up to 14 guests, Kohatu presents five spacious bedrooms across the main house and a self-contained apartment. The first and second bedroom each features a luxurious king size bed, the third bedroom is fitted with a king split bed, and the fourth bedroom has a king size bed and a day bed. The fifth bedroom includes two sets of single bunks and a single bed. This lovely retreat also features five large bathrooms with bathtubs and separate showers.
