Dunalistair House at The Kinloch Club Golf Course, New Zealand

3-9 Keys 4 Bedrooms 8 Guests 4 BathsView Amenities


Kia Ora, and welcome to Dunalistair House at The Kinloch Club Golf Course in the central North Island of New Zealand.

Understated yet luxurious finishes complement this award winning design from one of New Zealand's leading architects, Brendon Gordon.

The home has cemented itself as one of New Zealand's premium retreats, with four spacious ensuite bedrooms (split in two wings which flank a large communal pavilion area). And the views are to die for, expansively overlooking the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course and the mighty Lake Taupo in the distance. To the back of the home, mature gardens often attract native birds to the flax, kowhai and sugar bird feeder !

The home is inspired by natural timber and stone features along with feature wallpapers and New Zealand artwork. Sink into your own personal heaven in this hidden gem location, which being central to the populated areas of Auckland, Wellington and Hawkes Bay, makes it a great stopping place on your journey around New Zealand.

The owners have 30+ years travel industry experience, and they are happy to assist with any questions you have for your trip to Dunalistair House and wider New Zealand.

Located a kilometre from the village of Kinloch, the region offers stunning lakefront beaches, walking and biking tracks, marina, pub and restaurant and local store. The local town of Taupo (resident to 35,000 people) is an easy 15 minute drive and offers fantastic shops, supermarkets, cafes and restaurants. Rotorua is also only 50 minutes away, with its abundance of activities on offer.

Fantastic Stay at Dunalistair House

Our stay at Dunalistair House in Kinloch was absolutely fantastic. Alistair met us at the house upon arrival and showed us the interworking of this modern gem. He was a great host and also made many wonderful recommendations for our stay. The house is so open and airy that you feel like you are staying in the outdoors. It has amazing views of the Kinloch Golf Course and the sunsets are out of this world. The location being close to Taupo allows for so many activities. We went on a sailboat cruise to see the Maori carvings, Mountain bike riding around Huka Falls, hiking on the Great Lake Trail, Fly Fishing, Spa day at the Wairakei Terraces and lots of relaxing in this gorgeous house. We would love to come back! Thank you Alistair for making it available on Third Home. ”

WOW, What a beautiful home

Staying in Alistair's home on Kinloch golf course just outside of Taupo was one of the highlights of our 6 week trip to New Zealand. 8 friends and family gathered together in this home and to a person we could not stop raving on how wonderful and comfortable this home is. Kristy and Alistair are great hosts. They spent ample time with us reviewing the amenities of the home and provided great recommendations on local restaurants, activities and guides. They also responded quickly with questions during our stay Do you golf, sail, fish, hike, site see, bike...? This area has it all. I wish I could give a rating above a 5. The Dunalistair House deserves it.”

Perfect golfing outdoor activity location with luxury thrown in

Our experience at Dunalistair house was fantastic from the point of booking! Alistair was a great communicator and host - taking the trouble to meet us personally at check in and providing lots of information on the area along with offers to help with booking the many activities available in the area. The house was spacious and perfect four couples. Well equipped and very comfortable. The loaction was stunning - peacful with beautiful views over the golf course to the lake and mountains. Highly recommended if you are keen on an action packed great outdoors adventure. ”
