I cannot begin to say enough wonderful things about this bed and breakfast. All I can say is that you will NOT regret choosing to stay at Beaconfield. In fact you will quickly fall in love! This accommodation was my very favorite throughout my entire travels of the South Island, and I cannot stop talking about my stay. Their home... More

This is a gorgeous house situated in a small family vineyard. There are just two guest rooms and both have incredible views of the mountains and vineyard. It's a short drive from Wanaka town so you do need a car. Carla and Mike are a lovely couple. Breakfast was delicious and varied and they both take such pride in their... More

Carla and Mike are great hosts, their home is situated in a most tranquil part of Wanaka, far enough out from the bustle, but close enough to enjoy the restaurants and walks along Lake Wanaka. Carla and Mike's home is a joy, very clean, our room was well equipped with views of their vines and across to the mountains. Mike... More

Wanaka is a beautiful place and stying with Rackleys made our visit even more agreable. They are very interested and have travelled themselves quite a bit, so they can understand travellers and how to make them feel comfortable. We have enjoyed the view, the wonderful breakfast (Mike is wonderful cook) and also the wine of their own production. Stying with... More

During our honeymoon in NZ we stayed at 10 different places (hotels and B&Bs) and this was by far our favourite place to stay. Mike and Carla were so lovely. When we arrived we were offered tea and home made biscuits and we really felt at home. The room was awesome and we had the best sleep of our entire... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in April 2014. Very good location - It is about a 5 minute drive from the main strip of Wanaka town. Our room was absolutely lovely. Beautifully decorated with a picturesque view of the vineyard and the lake. The bed was very comfortable. The ensuite was clean and modern. The food on both mornings... More

The place is very comfortable and clean. The views from the rooms are perfect - private vineyard, the lake and the mountains. The breakfasts were delicious, Mike was preparing something different every day. Carla was baking new muffins everyday and they were hard to resist. Both hosts helped us with planning our hikes in Wanaka and the next days of... More

My wife and I spent two nights here with Mike and Carla in March 2014. A warm welcome, most comfortable room and bed, quiet and nearly-bucolic, magnificent lake and mountain views, Mike and Carla, surrounded by their private vineyard, proved to be superb Kiwi hosts. Mike was the breakfast chef and both of them offered helpful advice on Wanaka-area attractions.... More

On a recent five week trip to New Zealand we found Wanaka in the South Island to be one of our favourite towns. The Beaconfield B&B was a highlight of Wanaka. This B&B is set in vineyards with a view of the beautiful mountains around the lake. We had a lovely, large ground floor room with a terrace looking out... More

My sister and I stayed here with Mike and Carla for a couple of nights in February. We were made very welcome and had a peaceful and relaxing time at the B&B. Mike and Carla supplied lots of good advice on things to do in the area and we set off after partaking in a delicious breakfast. A lovely setting... More
