Available to rent all year round, Dunalistair House offers a luxurious 5*graded holiday home in a secluded setting alongside The Kinloch Club, New Zealand. Offering quality fittings, luxurious bed linens and exquisite features, up to 8 guests can experience this exceptional home in complete privacy and comfort.

Dunalistair House at The Kinloch Club was completed on the 29th February 2008, the same day Jack Nicklaus visited to officially sign-off his first signature golf course in New Zealand, here at Kinloch. After completion, Dunalistair House won the coveted National Supreme Home of the Year, at the Architectural Designers of New Zealand Inc Awards. It also won the best home above 250sqm category at the same award ceremony. The property has also been graded “5 star” as a holiday home by Tourism New Zealand's official gradingsystem, Qualmark. This grading system requires stringent and strict assessment on an annual basis.

Available to rent as a private and exclusive retreat, Dunalistair House is an exceptional location for between 2 and 8 guests to experience one of New Zealand’s hidden gem locations, which is hard to match anywhere else in the world.

The home offers privacy, yet with uninterrupted views and outlooks of The Kinloch Club, with a stunning vista towards the hills and Lake Taupo in the distance. The home contains four en suite bedrooms, all being extremely well proportioned containing Californian Super King beds (which can be split into twin beds if necessary).

The entertaining areas offer a generous space with large stacking doors opening out to the golf course to the front of the house, and the landscaped gardens to the back. A 2.5m x 1.5m schist stone gas fireplace is an impressive feature of the living room, with vertical cedar cladding continuing inside the house from the exterior cladding, adding an incredible indoor / outdoor feel to the character of the home.

The kitchen is extremely well appointed with a 5 burner gas hob and electric oven, along with integrated dishwasher and French door fridge/ freezer. There is also a wine / beer cooler in a well stocked pantry. Also available for use is a rotisserie BBQ, and look out in 2012 for our latest addition - a wood fire Pizza Oven..! A media room with 50” flat screen offers a movie like experience, along with wireless internet access available throughout the villa.
