The picturesque landscape comprising the famous Jack Nicklaus Golf Course in Lake Taupo, New Zealand at The Kinloch Club is as if a wall mural at the stunning Dunalistair House. Named after Alistair Tod, an avid follower of pro-golfer Jack Nicklaus, Dunalistair House is quintessentially New Zealand with its crisp cedar wood exteriors, abundant use of schist stone, and unmatched views of rolling fields of green that undulate and hide from view at every mound.

Each of the four bedrooms at Dunalistair House has an ensuite with all-modern and essential amenities including bathtubs and/or showers. The bedrooms are comfortably furnished with plush double beds laden with luxurious, high-quality linen.

New Zealand is slowly being discovered by avid travellers for its untamed natural beauty and breath-taking landscapes. At The Kinloch Club, Lake Taupo, visitors are left spell-bound with the green pastures and the world-famous golf course built by Jack Nicklaus himself. Dunalistair House takes great pleasure in providing a seamless indoor and outdoor experience with a spacious patio that adjoins to the golf course and outdoor dining with a BBQ so you are never far away from the crisp North Island breeze.
Stacked wooden doors and glass walls allow an interspersing of the outdoors with the interior spaces. The spacious and open-concept living room is one with its natural surroundings with tinted glass doors that fold open to unfurl the land’s stupendous bounty. A schist stone fireplace combines well with aromatic cedar furniture for a heady ambiance that will leave you inspired and relaxed. A slanted ceiling with minimal fanfare indoors creates a cosy nook for guests to spend time with loved ones.
There are plenty of things for your entertainment such as a TV, the owner’s personal book collection, and even a telescope for star-gazing in the Southern Hemisphere, where everything is upside-down.

Guests will not want for anything at Dunalistair House and if it is not directly available, it will be on request.

Private events like parties and weddings with 80 guests, golf groups, etc. are welcome to make use of the villa’s amenities.
