Beautiful and peaceful are words that come to mind when describing Amanda and Randall’s place. Their home and adjacent guest accommodations are located down a country road opposite a sheep farm. It feels completely remote yet only a short 20 minute drive to Wanaka. Randall and Amanda are he ultimate hosts - friendly, interesting and interested and generous. Awaiting the daily breakfast treats (bread, butter, jam and eggs) was like waiting for Santa to come every day and then opening the best gift. Thanks Randall, Amanda and Dexter for taking care of us during our stay. We couldn’t have imagined a better vacation!

Couldn't have asked for a better experience! Sleeping in a tipi surrounded by the sounds of nature, practicing meditation and yoga daily, sharing the experience with like minded individuals, exploring the surrounding mountains on hikes, sailing on lake Wanaka and eating tasty healthy food. Wow! The land this is all situated on is just stunning, and the Richards family are just a delight to be with who can share the wealth of their accumulated wisdom with you. Thank you so much for your hospitality and love! x

A stunning property in a tranquil setting, perfect for escaping and getting away from daily life. With exceptional food, a superb location, and an amazing bunch of people, Randy and Amanda hosted an amazing retreat at Mountain Spirit. 4 days and 3 nights to reflect, enjoy, try something new and take it all in. From yoga to hiking to sailing, along with the phenomenal food from chef Tim, this was certainly a retreat worth traveling down from Christchurch for. I would definitely recommend and will certainly be back.

My experience at Mountain Spirit was exceptional. Refreshing, rejuvenating...rewarding. Our beautiful hosts, Randall, Amanda and Dexter are the beating heart of this wonderful place:Attentive, welcoming, vibrant...generous. Mountain spirit is alive with their love for each other and for the land, it is a song you can hear and a dance you can feel...infectious and healing for the soul. Staying here on a 5 day Yin Yoga retreat...through the combined remedy of their open loving hearts and the soulful character of the land...gave me space to relax and let go of everything outside. What else is there when you are surrounded by such exceptional physical and spiritual beauty? Thank you for such a wonderful time, it has changed me, and I consider myself truly blessed to have met you and stayed at your home.

What a beautiful and peaceful setting, wonderful hosts, interesting and varied activities, fantastic food and the wonderful people I met there. Went for the Yin retreat and from the moment I arrived till leaving four days later, was treated like a member of the family, with much consideration. The Yin was well delivered leaving me feeling deeply relaxed and rested. The activities including hiking and sailing were well organized and complimented the philosophy of the retreat. A genuinely well thought out and delivered itinerary. Can't speak highly enough of Mountain Spirit and am already planning ways I can return!
