I traveled with husband and 3 kids (5yo, 3yo, 1yo) Peter and Michaela have tried to make the house very inviting. As well as the standard cleanliness you would expect, the special things that made it for me was: 1. Great collection of DVD's, I'm sure any movie lover would be pleased. Some great kids and adults titles. 2. Plenty...

I booked this rental as it was in between Queenstown and Wanaka and I wanted a base for my family. There were 7 of us, with adults, a senior and kids. The home was beautiful and located in Cardrona. The location is about 20 minutes from Wanaka and can be served as an ideal base if you are in a...

We stayed at Cardrona Sanctuary during the June-July 2015 Australian school holidays. We are a family of four and were travelling with my wife's parents and sister. The four bedroom two...

About the neighborhood
Cardrona Sanctuary is just a 2 minutes drive from the Cardrona and Snow Park/Snow Farm ski fields access roads. The famous, historic Cardrona Pub is only a 400m walk away and provides great après-ski during winter, welcome cold drinks in summer and fabulous food all year round. The valley is also great for walking/jogging and mountain bike riding and is well known for the local horse trekking activities.

Queenstown is a scenic 40 minute drive away with all the adrenaline filled activities it is well known for (bungy jumping, jet boating, canyon swinging, sky diving etc), while Wanaka is only 15 minutes away. Both towns offer a great variety of dining, shopping and gallery experiences while vineyards, golf courses, additional ski fields and many other popular attractions all add to the...
