High up in the clouds, eye level with the majestic mountain ranges surrounding Queenstown's Lake Wanaka, you will find the "Hermit's Secret" - or as it is known in Maori - Muna Moke. This three bedroom house, perched among pine forest and native bush takes its name from being in one of Queenstown's premium locations - just off the scenic road from Queenstown to Glenorchy, and only ten minutes from the main town centre, Muna Moke is a secret that is worth keeping.
With stunning views over Lake Wanaka, all the way out to the famous "Remarkables" mountain ranges, the entire house is positioned to enjoy the ever changing vista from sunrise to sunset. Muna Moke's spacious deck at the back of the house is an ideal spot from which to watch the clouds go by, or spy on the many boats crossing along Lake Wakatipu. The deck is furnished with an eight-seater outdoor setting, the perfect place for outdoor dinners, or a glass of wine as the sun sets behind the mountains.
The expansive, open plan living and dining areas face towards the deck, and are surrounded by French doors and tall windows on every side of the house. The lounge centres around the stone fireplace, and together with the sunny reading nook by the north-facing windows makes a cozy place to retreat during a snowy Queenstown winter. The house has underfloor heating, meaning that if you want to venture away from your cosy nook in the lounge, you will still be warm and comfortable.
The kitchen adjoins the lounge, and comes fully equipped with everything you could wish for during your stay at Muna Moke. Whether you are cooking for friends or catering for your family, you will find everything you need to guarantee successful meal times. Framed by the incredible views, the dining room revolves around the ten-seater oak dining table, inviting the family to gather for dining, or playing one of the board games that are provided at the house. Nespresso coffee pod machine with starter pack of pods provided.
If board games are not your thing, you can choose to relax by watching TV, either in the lounge, where you will find a large flat screen TV equipped with satellite TV and DVD player, or else the TV in the master bedroom. You will find the master bedroom a haven in itself - located as the only room on the top floor of the house, the bedroom has a stately four-post King-sized bed, ample storage, as well as a private balcony which captures the sweeping lake and mountain views.
Downstairs is another large bedroom with a Queen sized bed and large built-in wardrobe - this bedroom also faces out towards the lake and features the same changing landscape you can see from the dining room. The third bedroom is at the front of the house and has two-king sized single beds, and views out to the side of the house.
The downstairs bathroom features a luxurious, deep bath that is surrounded by windows showcasing yet more views, as well as a separate, spacious shower, and a modern bathroom sink. There is also a separate toilet, as well as another room for the laundry, complete with washing machine and dryer.
The house comes with complimentary WiFi, and you will also find a selection of children's toys for those little guests.
Muna Moke really is the perfect place for any kind of Queenstown holiday you may wish for: whether you are after action-packed adventure - bungee jumping, hitting the ski slopes, hiking or biking across the many different tracks that the area is renowned for - or enjoying the slower pace of Queenstown's many attractions, Muna Moke is where you will want to come home to at the end of the day - this very special" Hermit's Secret" that we are sharing with you.

Sports & Adventure Activities
We loved staying a Muna Moke. It's a beautiful home with over the top gorgeous views. The house is a bit secluded and a short drive from town, but that's what made it so special for us. It was nice to be away from the hustle and bustle from Queenstown, but within just a few minutes drive.
This is one of those homes that you stay in and never want to leave. Hopefully, we'll get to go back again one day.
The beds were all comfy, and the downstairs queen room had spectacular views to wake up to. The kitchen was well appointed, and there is a good sized dining room table to enjoy meals at.
A VERY SCENIC PARADISE AND SOOO PEACEFUL
We are so glad to have found this peace of heaven. the views of the lake and pine forrest are stunning to say the least. The kitchen had everything we needed. The BBQ made dinner even more fun. The beds are comfortable complete with heated blankets. The floors were heated and if that's not enough there is a wood burning fire place. The drive to town was around 7 minutes but the scenery whilst driving takes your breath away thus did not seem long at all. We can still smell the pine forrest. Booking was a breeze and everyone was helpful and friendly. We will make Muna Moke our regular holiday home. Can't wait to return.
Muna Moke (Hermit’s Secret in Maori) will truly be one of your most treasured secrets. Set amidst acres of pine tree forest in the most private and tranquil position in Queenstown. The homestead is situated just outside the tourist township of Queenstown, a 10 minute lakeside drive on the road to Glenorchy. Every room at Muna Moke enjoys breathtaking views of Lake Wakatipu, nestled amongst the famous Walter Peak, Cecil Peak, Remarkables and Mount Nicholas, and not a trace of civilisation to be seen.
