Stay

Our Luxury Villa Collection

A stay at Mt Cook Lakeside Retreat is an escape to pure paradise.

Our High Country Estate and Luxury Villa Collection is situated on 66 hectares, nestled between the turquoise blue waters of Lake Pukaki and the majestic Ben Ohau ranges. It is on the doorstep of Aoraki Mount Cook National Park and the Te Wāhipounamu World Heritage Area, a place of unsurpassed beauty and natural wonders.

We are within 2-3 hours’ scenic drive of Wanaka or Queenstown and just 40 minutes from Takapō/Lake Tekapo. Our four on-site helipads offer direct helicopter access to your villa.

From the Ashley Mackenzie Villa, enjoy uninterrupted views up Lake Pukaki to the Southern Alps and Aoraki Mount Cook, New Zealand’s highest and most revered mountain. Ashley Mackenzie Villa also includes private access to the Fantail Spa, including outdoor hot tub, sauna, massage room and exercise facilities.

Moraine Villas overlook the tawny golden landscape of the legendary Mackenzie Basin and the Ben Ohau mountain ranges. These two villas, Villa Matariki and Villa Tautoru, include their own private outdoor spa pools.

All villas offer peaceful privacy and are finished to the highest standard of warm, comfortable luxury. Each villa comprises two bedrooms, with king or twin bed configurations, and can accommodate a maximum of four guests.

Rain or shine, it’s stunning. You can’t go wrong with this place. Luke and Kaye have spent a lot of time putting it together with love, care, and complete respect of their environment. You can feel their attention to every detail as soon as you walk through the door. The place is gorgeous, the energy serene, even the dogs are good company! We enjoyed the proximity to Mt Cook, the walks in the area, the delicious food, the majestic beauty of the place, the night skies, and above all the silence and privacy. I spent several hours just watching the colours of the sky and nature at different times of the day…and “stargazing 101” through Luke’s telescope was a wonderful experience too, on a very clear night. Thanks again to both of you for one of the most relaxing stays we’ve ever had.
