Rosie and Steve have a lovely home with very comfortable guest accommodation and views over Lake Wanaka. Rosie provides an excellent breakfast and many home-made accompanying goodies. With their very kind hospitality this comes highly recommended

We decided to elope in New Zealand and found Wanaka to be picture perfect. The Beacon Lodge was the perfect place to spend our wedding weekend. Drive up the long driveway and arrive at a perfectly landscaped home with a direct view of the lake and mountains. Walk into the interior courtyard and the scent from the rosemary shrub fills...

We arrived in beautiful Wanaka after a tiring drive down the west coast and wound our way up the hill to Rosie and Steve's haven. It then just got better. Their home has the most amazing setting overlooking the mountains to the west with the sun setting beyond. It then became sublime when we were invited to use the hot... More

Thought we must have walked into a property straight out of Home Beautiful or House and Garden. Stunning does not do this property justice !! Views to Die For from every single room, even our bathroom ! We did not even close our drapes to sleep, we didn't want to miss the view as the sun rose. I don't think... More

We stayed with Steve and Rosie twice (unintentionally) on our trip to the south island. The first time we had booked to stay there and the second, when we had to take a detour due to the storms on the west coast of the island. The second time Steve and Rosie graciously let us stay on very short notice. The... More

The views from Beacon Lodge are breathtaking, looking over the lake to the mountains. The rooms were beautifully designed, light and airy and very private with French windows opening on to meticulously kept gardens. The house could easily grace the best of any design magazine. It was indeed a very special place to stay.

Lots of good things have been written here already and we were pretty much expecting a more than first class B&B. And yes, it managed to even exceed those expectations because of the wonderful hosts Rosie and Steve. I do not want to write down what they did for us, but I can tell you we would never expect that... More

It takes special people to be able to welcome strangers into their own home and make them feel like family and Rosie and Steve do this perfectly. Upon arriving, my partner and myself were warmly greeted by Rosie and shown to our beautiful room. The room is very spacious with a stunning bathroom (shower is amazing) and plenty of storage...

We were lucky to have chosen Beacon Lodge for a three night stay in Wanaka. Upon arrival we were welcomed by Rosie and shown to our room which had fantastic views across the lake and to the mountains beyond. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Good shower and a separate dressing area. Also the room had crockery/cutlery which we used... More
