Reading other reviews, we must have been in some parallel universe. Barb and Phil are certainly nice, pleasant people, But they put in no effort. Want a cuppa - it's out in the garage, not in the house. Want to watch TV in your room - there's only one channel and you have to decide what channel you want and...

We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay. This was the A&P show weekend and 45,000 people attended the show in small-town Wanaka. We genenerally score high on hospitality but your wife indicated she was very tired when you arrived from walking the Routeburn Track. Note that the windows are tinted so you can see out and people cannot...

We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed Barbara, Phil and Mika(the dog)'s great hostpitality. Barbara takes great effort to maintain the house and service. We have our own Private and spacious bathroom. Barbara also shares a lot what you won't find in tourist guide, like a playground we wouldn't find and our girl enjoyed so much.

We stayed here for 2 nights. Barbara, Phil & Mikka were amazing hosts. Room & bathroom was pristine. We were thankful we were able to do our laundry. Barbara & Phil gave us lots of good suggestions for things to do around the area. Breakfast was delicious. Must try is Barbara's pancakes.
