The Dacha (“second home” in Russian) is a stunning private residence turned luxury lodge in New Zealand. Located on the South Island in Wanaka, the architecturally modern home was designed according to a single mantra: “It’s all about the view.” The dramatic landscape of glacial valleys and alpine peaks can be seen from nearly every room in the house.
With a master suite, four guest rooms, and a cottage (the Dacha sleeps 18), a heated swimming pool, private gardens, and an art collection, it has all the comforts of home—and then some. Breakfast is prepared by an in-house chef, while a concierge is on hand to help you explore this slice of wild paradise, be it with a heli-adventure, a winery tour, or a hike.
The Dacha, 53 Mt Gold Place, Wanaka 9305, Otago, New Zealand.
