I cannot fault the experience we had when staying here. Pauline and John looked after is so well and even arranged for a helicopter to come and pick,is up from their grounds and take us on a magical journey over mountains and seas. We landed on the top of a glacier and played snowball fights in the hot sun. Surreal!... More

Hospitality, room (ask for the Linden suite!), diner (excellent chef!), service, swimming pool, ... even 5 nice chip & putt holes. Everything top quality! Moreover, Pauline and John are very nice people who care for their guests.

We spent only 2 nights at Lime Tree Lodge. Not long enough to really enjoy all that Wanaka and Lime Tree have to offer. Pauline and John are, without a doubt, the hosts all other hosts should be measured against. Warm, genuinely interested in their guests, nothing too much trouble. Their local knowledge invaluable, the rooms beautifully appointed. The home... More
