My husband and I went to Wanaka Homestead in April 2017 and it was a perfect experience. We couldn't ask for any better. The environment of the place was really good, cosy, relaxed, with a very beautiful decoration in a typical house. This homestead has a good location, near enough to the city center in a very calm area. It's...

The weekend here was idyllic - we felt very lucky to have come across the 2 cottages. It was a short lovely walk to town , kids loved the park at the end of the street ( 50m away) . The hot tub was clean and relaxing. Thea was a fantastic host and the actual accommodation suited us all very...

We stayed in a room on the ground floor in the main building. The room itself was nice (the lightning could be improved to have a cosy atmosphere) the lounge for the guests and the breakfast room were also very nice. What to improve: it was very warm in our room and difficult to cool it down even during the...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I apologise if I appeared distant as that is certainly not my intention. You may have stayed when we were very busy and it is difficult to look after all guests as personally as I would like. I am uncertain whether you were too warm at night or too cold....

This place has a warm, inviting environment and friendly, helpful staff. They were able to assure my husband, who has various food allergies, of a great breakfast. As a photographer, my husband was thrilled we were so close to the Wanaka Tree. By walking to the tree before sunrise he got a fantastic photo when the sun peaked over the...

Very well conceived bed and breakfast lodge with generous rooms and up to date amenities. Excellent cooked breakfast; very accommodating staff. A bit out of main city center but quickly made bicycles available to make the short run to town vs. 10 minute walk.

The ensuites are well appointed. Hosts were nice, professional and helpful with useful tips. Location is pretty near town and was not so noisy. We also enjoyed the home cooked breakfast which has a quite few choices. Overall, I would stay here again if I ever come back to Wanaka.

The lodge is about 15 min walk to the shopping center. We always drive to town since parking is easy to find in town. The room is very quiet and spacious with 2 bed and 2 bath. The host is so nice that they even gave us a converter plug for our US computer, I wanted to buy it, but...

We spent two wonderful nights at "Ruby's cottage". The cottage was perfectly equipped with very comfortable interior. Just two minutes walking distance from Lake Wanaka. Our kids loved the Outdoor Hot Tub. Definitely one of those places which we'd love to get back to!

Close enough to town to enjoy but far enough to be quiet & relaxed. Rooms are well done and the bathroom was awesome! Breakfast was above and beyond what we expected! Feels a bit cramped as the upstairs rooms feel like bedrooms in a house.

We had just one night here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our room was on the small side but very comfortable with everything to make so. Tea, coffee , muffins, biscuits and fresh fruit available in the lounge all day. We enjoyed sitting in the lounge and relaxing. Free laundry facilities. Breakfast was very good and enjoyed chatting with fellow travelers....
