We stayed here for three nights. This is a stylish property overlooking Wanaka and the lake - about a 15 minute walk from the waterfront. The rooms are well equipped and contemporary - and very comfortable. Guests have an independent entrance to the hosts' house - so you get the benefits of B&B combined with privacy. Don and Lorraine are...

Very stylish, luxurious room in a beautiful house. Very comfortable bed. Great view of the lake, in a quiet but still central location. You can walk to the restaurants in town. Don and Lorraine are perfect hosts. We enjoyed the excellent breakfast cooked by Don, the delicious muffins baked by Lorraine and the interesting talks. The perfect place to explore...

This is the place to stay when visiting the Wanaka area. The suite is well appointed and the view is fantastic! Don & Lorainne are very gracious host and even went out of their way to fix us breakfast even though we had to leave early in the morning. I can't say enough about the location away from the noise...

We absolutely loved staying at Aspiring Lofts. The room was amazing with a wonderful bathroom, bed, kitchenette and a breathtaking view of the mountains from the private balcony. Don was a phenomenal host and we loved getting to talk with him during breakfast. The breakfast was wonderful! My particular favorite was when we were too full to finish our muffins...

My wife and I stayed one night during our recent road trip around NZ and wishes we had more time to enjoy this lovely area and the friendly company of Don and Lorraine. Very clean and comfortable accommodation in a separate section of the house. Tasty breakfast. And to top it all, Don and Lorraine are very warm, witty and...
