Jo and Ian were a delight to stay with and, like some other reviewers, our only negative was that we only stayed one night; it is a lovely area and would have justified a longer stay. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel completely at home and Jo was happy to recommend - and book - a... More

What a lovely couple Jo and Ian are. We only booked one night but wish we could have stayed longer. Like many people we were trying to see all of New Zealand in a holiday that should have been twice as long. Lovely views from the property and a 20 minute stroll got us to the centre of Wanaka.

We stayed one night at Harpers. We were greeted with hot drinks and muffins by Jo. The view from the lounge are stunning and we sat looking out and relaxing after our journey. Nothing was too much trouble and when we wanted to know about eating out Jo phoned a restaurant and made a reservation for us. Breakfast was very... More

Sadly we only allowed 1 night stay at the delightful Harpers b&b. Jo made us so welcome on our arrival and after being shown our room we were converted. The view and hospitality was so good we where sad to leave. Wanaka is a beautiful place, quiet and unassuming. Ideal for couples and families alike do not miss this off... More

My stay for three nights was just right for taking in several of the many activities beautiful Wanaka offers. The Harper's home is comfortable and their garden is a work of love. But if your're looking for excellence you'll find that too in the breakfast, including home baked bread, pancakes, sausage/bacon and fresh fruit as well. And after breakfast their... More

We stayed here during our honeymoon, but sadly only for one night. The room was lovely with access to the balcony with great views of the lake and surrounding mountains. The owners were fantastic hosts accommodating our annoying travel schedule and making us pancake breakfast in the early hours of the morning before we had to leave. The house is... More

8 years after my last visit the first place I booked was this home from home in Wanaka. Fabulous hosting with breakfast pancakes. Wanaka is Queenstown without the overdo hype. Beauty not to be missed. You will be warmly welcomed here at this quiet B and B just out of the town centre bustle

Another traveller said Harpers was like visiting mum and dad, and I suppose that sums it up, it was like going home, the moment we arrived we felt so at ease and sensed the welcome. Jo and Ian were wonderful hosts sharing their local knowledge with us and pointing us in the right direction for a walk into town. We... More

We only had one night in Wanaka & we made a great pick with Harpers! Ian & Jo are terrific, we very much enjoyed the welcome board, yummy sweet breakfast including pancakes & homemade lemon/passion fruit curd & all the advice about the area. Guests even get a printed list with scenic spots along the drive to their next destination!... More

We stayed two nights at Harpers in the end of October this year and really enjoyed it all: lovely cosy, clean and spacious upstairs room with all the comforts you would need, great picture-card view of Lake Wanaka and the mountains, and of course the great breakfasts and interesting discussions during it. A good start for the day. Jo and... More
