A secluded, luxurious high-country homestead on a 55,000-acre private property

Mahu Whenua is not only a luxury lodge with its own stables, helipad, heated pool and media room – it is a 55,000-acre property that is yours to explore in exclusivity.

Comprised of four adjoining high country sheep stations that are now being farmed sustainably, it’s a majestic land of jagged ridges, deep valleys, beech forests and meandering rivers.

Perched on its own green hill, miles from anything, the Ridgeline Homestead offers unparalleled seclusion. Comprising just four suites, each sleeping two guests, or when booked for exclusive use a total of 12 – it is a gleaming example of rustic luxury, with thick stone walls, wooden floors, open fireplaces and picture windows that frame perfect views of shimmering Lake Wanaka and the snow-dusted peaks beyond.

Memorable meals are prepared daily by professional chefs, ensuring guests have sufficient energy for the plethora of activities on offer: horse trekking tours and mountain biking, picnics and helicopter tours, rock climbing and 4WD adventures, fly fishing and more.
