Stepping stones lead across the reflecting pond into this light & airy space. Featured in design magazines, this architecturally acclaimed artist studio is in tune with nature, perfect for taking time out. The breathtaking panoramic views of the mountains are a photographer’s dream. Absorb the good design & art that surrounds you - the romantic starry night sky, reflections of the sun on the pond shimmering on the ceiling: the ambience is outstanding.

Indawo
Your hosts Martin and Philippa are environmental artists who designed this north facing sunny sanctuary inspired by a Japanese tea house. Step into our world - it features our own art and our books are there for you to enjoy. Watch the birds that come to our pond and native plants, make a fresh coffee, pour a wine, practice yoga-with-a-view on the mat we provide, enjoy our interesting furnishings and all those personal touches that make a place memorable.

Located on a hill and surrounded by bush the feeling of seclusion is complete, yet you are close to Wanaka township - only 5 minutes’ drive away. Significantly for this area there is easy access to the studio via a sealed road up to our lane where you can park on our flat driveway, only a few metres from the studio entrance.

On our hill homes are hidden from each other amongst the native vegetation but have outstanding views to the mountains, lake and river. We are near access to biking and walking tracks and the town is just far enough away for peace and quiet and romantic starry nights, but close enough for restaurants, cafes, shopping and nightlife.
Our house is nearby but screened from the studio. We use an alternative entrance and respect your privacy at all times, but we are available for recommendations or information about local activities, walks, shopping and restaurants.

HERE ARE SOME OF OUR REVIEWS SINCE NOVEMBER 2019:

“What an amazing location! The views are stunning and the space is sparkling clean and beautifully designed. Philippa was incredibly kind and was there to greet us and quick to respond to questions and give us tips for our stay. She went above and beyond to make sure we had privacy and make sure we had everything we need. Would absolutely come again.” -Tara

“The stay here exceeded our expectations. The views are breath taking, the studio is very comfortable with great personal touches. Having coffee in the morning overlooking the mountain range was one of my favorite parts of the day. Philippa also made the check in process extremely easy and seamless. Could not recommend this place enough!“ – Pola

“Philippa is a wonderful host. She is cheerful and truly excited that you are staying at her place. She genuinely wants you to have the best time in New Zealand and her attitude reflects that. The space is perfect as a base for everything in and around Wanaka. The bed is incredibly comfortable and the views are to die for. We could not recommend this studio more highly. It was the perfect place to start our honeymoon.” – Alex

“Our stay here was fantastic! The studio was very comfortable and clean. Being surrounded by beautiful artwork and architecture certainly added to the experience - the reflecting pond was a unique and serene element. I can’t recommend this space highly enough if you’re traveling to Wanaka. Philippa was a great host, checking in to ensure our stay was the best it could be. The views from their hillside retreat cannot be beaten”. – Peter

“A visual feast! The views of the mountains from the studio both inside and outside are spectacular. The studio walls are graced with Martin and Philippa’s artwork which is an absolute treat. Philippa and Martin are wonderful hosts, interested in us and our trip they helped enhance our plans with recommendations of the local surrounds and activities. We would definitely recommend a stay at the Idyllic art studio.” - Elizabeth

Apho uza kuba khona

Wanaka, Otago, New Zealand

On our hill homes are hidden from each other amongst the native vegetation. Our place has outstanding views to the mountains. We are near access to many biking and walking tracks and the town is just far enough away for peace and quiet and romantic starry nights, but close enough for restaurants, shopping and nightlife.

I’m a born and bred New Zealander. I was drawn to the magic of Wanaka 12 years ago with my partner Martin, an environmental artist with whom I share a deep passion for nature, adventure and creativity. We met as climbers and artists and we collaborate to create Land Art all over the world. Creating a home and studio on this hillside overlooking our beloved mountains has brought us the greatest joy of all. We have come to know this beautiful alpine and lakes region through mountain biking, hiking and climbing. We love its diversity and grandeur and being part of a friendly and active community. I love to grow and cook our own food, make beautiful things and paint. I like to be spontaneous and I think personal touches are very important. But most of the time I will leave you in peace. Life here in Wanaka is good and sharing our studio is a way to let great people from round the world enjoy it too. We look forward to meeting you.
