Tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac, just a short walk from the breathtaking and bustling lakefront sits your cosy Wanaka escape. Welcome to Southern Comfort.

There’s room for the boat, the bikes, and the whole family here at this four-bedroom holiday house, and with all the comforts of home ready and waiting for you, all you need to worry about is deciding which exciting Wanaka spot you’re going to check out first!

Whip up a delicious breakfast in the fully equipped kitchen, brew a cuppa in the coffee plunger, and get planning! Will it be a hike up Mt Iron to take in the breathtaking views from the top, a swim and an ice-cream down at the lake, or perhaps you’re here to hit the slopes.

Perhaps you’re just looking to relax and unwind here at Southern Comfort. The cosy living room is the perfect place to put your feet up with a book or use the complimentary WIFI to post some of your favourite holiday snaps. Heat pump technology allows you to set the ideal temperature, at the touch of a button.

On a hot summer day, open the bi-fold doors and create seamless indoor-outdoor flow out onto the patio. Put the umbrella up and enjoy a glass of Central Otago Pinot Noir, while the BBQ sizzles away in the background. After dinner, pop the dishes in the dishwasher and get back to good conversation, long into the warm evening.

When it’s time to recharge the batteries for tomorrow, four bedrooms here at Southern Comfort offer a range of bedding configurations suitable for all types of families and groups. The ensuite off the master bedroom, and the main bathroom complete with bathtub, provide tidy and modern conveniences for everyone.

Here at Southern Comfort, you’re an easy 5-minute drive (or 20-minute walk) from town, where you’ll find a plethora of shops, eateries, and conveniences. There’s a cafe and B-Effect craft brewery just two-minutes walk down the road for your morning espresso fix or afternoon beer, plus a playground for the kids to keep themselves entertained across the road.

For adventures further afield, the mind-boggling Puzzling World is a 4-minute drive from home, and the slopes of Cardona and Treble Cone are about 45 minutes drive away. If you're keen on biking, Bike Glendhu mountain bike park is a 20-minute drive, and the Sticky Forest trails only a 5-minute bike ride from the house. Queenstown is accessible via the Crown Range in just over an hour.

Quiet, cosy, and a slice of Southern Comfort - your Wanaka home away from home awaits!
