Lodge, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 10)

Wildside Getaway is a modern, self-sufficient eco-home on a tranquil 350 acre native bush property, with inspirational views of Mount Ruapehu and Mount Taranaki. This is the perfect getaway for families and groups looking for a genuine New Zealand outdoors experience and is also ideal as a base for snow sports, with a large drying room, great log fire and spacious games room. Stunning landscapes and wildlife make Wildside Getaway a paradise for lovers of the outdoors and photographers.

This lodge has been developed with sustainability in mind and is a great example of a warm, comfortable off-the-grid home. Power is provided by solar panels and wind turbines and hot water is provided by a combination of a wetback from the large wood burner, solar and instant gas.

The house has a Homestar self-assessment rating of 7 stars out of 10.

A well set up Bach in a beautiful setting. We loved our time here and will be back. On arriving to the main gate we were greeted by 2 deer. Stunning spot.

We loved staying here, it was a very nice, well looked after property and it was a shame we didn't have our children with us as they would have enjoyed it too. Loved having the deer come over to stare at us and the view off the deck to Mt Ruapehu was a real treat!

What can we say Wildside is a beautiful slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

What can we say Wildside is a beautiful slice of paradise! We loved the story behind the home, the amazing views, animals and walking tracks which we enjoyed with our beyond excited dogs (which led to more amazing views). The house is thoughtfully set up, comfortable and was super relaxing - we had a lovely visit and hope to go again some day. Tips - follow the instructions closely if arriving in the dark as the signage upon arriving at the property is not lit, no laundry facilities available.
