Our very favourite place that we stayed in over two weeks touring in South Island. Wanaka Haven is just what its name says - a haven of calm, style and comfort on the edge of Wanaka. Beautiful views, great breakfasts, beds you really didn't want to get out of they were so cosy, and a lovely pool. Also - we...

We are here for 2 days. Great hosts and superb accommodation with very light and airy rooms with everything to a very high standard. Really comfortable. The patio area for our room was super and sunny and breakfasts really good with lots of choice. There is a heated swimming pool but maybe a bit late in the year to use...

There is a fair amount of choice in Wanaka although it does get very busy at times. This was our first visit to Wanaka Haven and it was selected only on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews - no word of mouth. However we were not disappointed. This is a very comfortable, peaceful option on the outskirts of town. Hosts...

Absolutely lovely property. The setting is pastural, looking out on open farmland framed by the mountains in the distance. The rooms are New with all the modern features. The decor is comfortable cozy and the owners incredibly gracious. About a 5 minute drive from town which can give you respite from the many tourist in Wanaka.

This is a quiet location just outside Wanaka, with very comfortable rooms plus a lovely sitting room and dining room to relax in. The hosts, Annlie and Steve, are so helpful and serve wonderful breakfasts. We would return anytime we could.

We were delighted with this property and its proprietors! It is about 10 minutes from the heart of Wanaka -- setting in a quiet pastoral setting away from the crowds. I would call it a perfect launching point for any adventure in the area. Our hosts were very helpful in arranging our dinners and activities, as well as fixing fabulous...

It is impossible to fault Wanaka Haven. The property is beautifully furnished, as was our bedroom; breakfast was delicious and our hosts were amazingly helpful. We would design our whole trip around ensuring we could enjoy a good long stay here on another trip. Cannot recommend highly enough.
