The room, the cleanliness, the facilities, the bed, the staff, the breakfast, the extras, it was all excellent. How do you improve on excellent? You feel like you are at home and your hosts (almost) instantly become your friends. You feel like a part of their extended family. Pauline and John are fabulous and we really appreciated all their hospitality... More

Let me tell you, Pauline and John are one of the kindest people I met in all my life of travels. Pauline is one hell of a character with devilishly delicious sense of humor.

We received a warm welcome from Pauline and John and it felt like we were visiting relatives in the country. Our room was well appointed and comfortable and looked out on pleasant gardens. Each evening we were served canopes and drinks in the lounge while the talented Elise cooked tasty and extravagant meals. The lodge is in a quiet and... More

We spent four nights at Lime Tree Lodge in early January. It was a superb visit, very relaxing and with everything possible catered for. The lodge is about five minutes drive out of Wanaka, on lovely grounds. Each of the rooms has access straight to the gardens and the private pool area. Internally, there is a cosy lounge and dining... More

John & Pauline were the most wonderful hosts with nothing too much trouble. I only wish we could have stayed more than 1 night but we will definitely be back. Could not speak more highly of this beautiful place.

Had a fantastic 4 night stay at Lime Tree Lodge. John & Pauline ensure that you are as comfortable as can be - nothing is too much trouble. Food is yummy and rooms very comfortable. Topped it off with an amazing helicopter ride around Mount Aspiring. You get so spoilt here that your other accommodation pales in comparison!!

Highly recommended. Our every need and more was met. Breakfast was fantastic with everything you could possibly want all included. Pauline and John were amazingly generous with their canapés every night which included chesses, salmon and wine. We had the black suite which was more like a self contained apartment. A perfect balance of luxury and a homelike feel. We... More
