My wife and I spent two nights at Beacon Lodge and we could have easily spent two weeks. Rosie and Steve were perfect hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed their company. Our room was very comfortable!. The home is a very short drive from the center of Wanaka(2-3 minutes). We enjoyed sitting on the patio outside our bedroom door and enjoying a... More

We really enjoyed staying at Beacon Lodge and it's one of the highlights in our family trip of five people. The location is about 1 minute drive from the town center in the surrounding residential area which made us feel less like tourists in the town. The house is lovely and the guest rooms are simple but elegant. Rosie and... More

A charming B&B with lovely views of the mountains. Room was comfortable with delicious little snacks. Every morning's breakfast was delicious. We found the location lovely as it was a little further from town and we liked being a little more tucked away. Great stay.

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.
