Staying at the Avalanche studio was an absolute treat, I am so glad my friends and I booked this accommodation. Trish and Davey were the most helpful of hosts, having a group of 5 of us to stay and providing us with all the advice they could offer. The place is lovely and comfortably fit us, with breathtaking views into... More

My Uni friends and I stayed in the Avalanche studio for a couple of nights and we couldn't have had any better luck. We had such an incredible time thanks to the friendly hosts, Trish and Davey, who were so generous and helpful. We would come home after a tiring day of skiing to find freshly-baked muffins or cookies waiting... More

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this B and B. Trish and Davy were so helpful and friendly, the room was gorgeous and the home cooked treats were a great bonus. We stayed in the smaller studio and this was perfect for our needs. We spent our days ski-ing then relaxing in central Wanaka and this space... More

I cannot find any faults with this bed and breakfast. I only wish we would have stayed more than one night. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. We really wanted to see keas (the birds) during our stay and were on our way to the east coast where we would be out of their range. Davey gave my husband... More

Thank you for your lovely review. I'm sorry you didn't manage to see the keas but as you say the drive up to Treble Cone is worth it just for the scenery. I'm glad you enjoyed your short stay here in Wanaka. Poppy certainly appreciated all the attention she received! Kind regards Trish, Davy and Poppy More

We were thrilled to arrive to a warm greeting from Trish and Davey at Avalanche. Our heaters had been turned on, freshly baked muffins and home made biscuits on the bench and a cosy, very clean apartment. The views are gorgeous, and the situation great as so close to the Lake walkway, yet not far from town. I loved that... More

I am so glad we found this place to stay for our two day trip down to Wanaka for a friend's wedding. The rooms were beautifully decorated and very clean (even to my husband's finicky standards), and the homemade muffins and cookies were scrumptious! Trish is the perfect hostess, friendly and helpful, and along with Poppy, the resident pet dog,... More

What a wonderful find!

Amazing views, very spacious & clean accommodation, delicious breakfast & homemade muffins & friendly, helpful hosts.... Trish & Davey. Apparently, according... More

Our second stay confirmed our opinion. This has to be one of the best places to offer accommodation. We had our own studio room with kitchen and lounge, Trish's delicious muffins and home-made jams, not to mention her excellent recommendations of restaurants and walks around Wanaka. There's a beautiful garden to relax in and a splendid view. Even the DVD... More

We stayed 3 nights. Everything was perfect: an amazing view of the glacier, a wonderful room much of space, very clean. It's a bed and breakfast but it's like you are at home; all you need for breakfast is in the kitchen and Trish puts delicious fresh fruit salads in the fridge. Also the homemade muffins were outstanding. The laundry... More
