Luxury 4 bedroom holiday home at The Kinloch Club Golf Course, Lake Taupo

Kiwi Golf Packages Available 

Kinloch / Wairakei / Cape Kidnappers - check packages page here. 

Dunalistair House is an award winning architectural luxury holiday home and retreat for up to 8 guests staying in 4 large ensuite bedrooms. The accommodation is an ideal escape for golf groups, combined families or for small corporate executive retreats. The home is available to rent exclusively to single party bookings all year round. We also create lifetime memories with a small number of intimate weddings (maximum 80 guests on the day), making Dunalistair House one of the Taupo regions most sought after venues.  


A stunning outlook complements the large open plan pavilion area with huge floor to ceiling stacking doors. The effective use of cedar and schist stone throughout blend beautifully with interior finishes. Guests tend to state that the home melds beautifully into the surrounding landscape as a timeless piece of New Zealand architecture, unrivaled by its premium location overlooking the highly ranked Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course at The Kinloch Club.  

COVID-19 Update : As we enter Level 2 restrictions, we are pleased to announce that Dunalistair House will be available to rent as a fantastic home to bring your friends, family and golfing buddies. As we are limited to maximum occupants of 8 people, we are within the 10 person gathering rules set out by the New Zealand government. We will therefore be unable to hire Dunalistair House as a venue for any events at this stage which expect more than 10 people.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about any future stays.




Dunalistair House has a fully equipped kitchen for your use during your stay, however chef services are growing increasingly popular, whether a dinner for a special event or unique occasion. Check out a menu here
