Alpinism Studio Cottage Accommodation in Wanaka

For more photos please check our listing on Airbnb.

The Alpinism studio is a completely self catered charming little haven near the center of Wanaka. It is situated on the same property as the Alpinism and Ski mountain guiding company with your hosts Iris and Gary. It has been called studio, cottage, cabin and even a rustic mountain hut. Equipped with all that’s needed, the style is rather retro with the theme reuse and recycle. You are welcome to compost too.

It is independent, private and cosy. Split level and open plan, it contains a double bed (please note that a double is smaller than a queen bed), toilet/shower, two heaters, kitchen with fridge, induction cooker, micro wave, kettle, toaster, coffee machine, electric frying pan, washing machine and dryer. There is a kitchen table with chairs and the living area has a comfortable seat with a foot stool and a single person sofa bed with a storage box integrated underneath. It is ideal for an individual or a couple. Bed linen and towels are provided.

Free wi-fi and plenty of advice available about places to visit and things to do.

During the summer it can be booked via AirBnB or direct with us, and in Winter we look to have tenants for the duration of the ski season. The studio is available for winter tenancy again from beginning of May 2024, apply by email.

Our mountaineering and climbing guests have the option to stay at our base also before and after a trip, there are a small private room and a shared climbers room available, price on application.
