Award Winning Cardrona Accommodation

Summer 2020

November 2020 – April 2021

Waiorau Homestead, award-winning Cardrona accommodation, is located in a picturesque rural setting in the Cardrona Valley, close to Wanaka. The Homestead has stunning views over the mountains and is settled in 10 acres of beautiful stream boundary grounds.

The world-class Cardrona Distillery is 2 minutes drive away as is the iconic Cardrona Hotel, New Zealand’s oldest hotel.

For the wine buffs, there are more than 30 world class vineyards within a short drive.

There are also a number of local activities including mountain biking, horse-riding, quad biking, hiking and walks, all of which are on our doorstep.

The Homestead has three beautifully appointed bedrooms to choose from, a private guest lounge and dining room, outdoor spa and fireplace, petanque and many other guest services and amenities to make your stay a memorable one.

We offer a delicious 3-course dinner prepared by our resident chef, on request.

Ideally located between Wanaka and Queenstown, Waiorau Homestead is the closest accommodation to the Cardrona Ski Resort and Snow Farm ski fields. Treble Cone, The Remarkables and Coronet Peak are also only 35 minutes drive away.
