It was a cosy yet well spaced studio. Arriving into a warm room with home baked muffins & cookies made our day. The fruit salad was delicious! Yes, we felt loved. Avalanche Bed & Breakfast was definitely a gem and we didnt want to leave. Thanks for the lovely arrangements, we will be back! : )

We stayed at the Avalanche on a recent trip around the South Island, travelling in a campervan to soak in the beauty of the South island. The Avalanche was an absoulte delight and our favourite stop along the way. Trish and Dave are wonderful hosts and the studio provided a luxurious stay which we would have loved to extend. The...

From the warm, friendly welcome to Trish's personal touch in the generous supply of wonderful homemade provisions, this has been the very best B & B experience of our NZ trip. The ground floor suite is comfortably appointed with fabulous views. What a pity we couldn't stay longer to enjoy your hospitality further. Thank you both very much for a... More

Great hosts, very friendly. Loved the breakfast with fresh muffins and beautiful view from our room up the valley towards the mountains. Very knowledgeable in all aspects of the region. Very helpful in making the most of your time in and around Wanaka.

We were recommended this B & B by the Wanaka Information Office and were very pleased with this advice. Avalanche is a self contained B & B with great views of the Mt Aspiring Range. The accommodation was very good, with an excellent bed, comfortable furniture and excellent kitchen facilities if you wished to cook for yourselves. We didn't because... More

Avalanche B&B was a real find and helped make Wanaka the highlight of our two week family holiday. Trish and Davey were lovely and extremely generous hosts. We including our three children (2, 6 and 16 years) felt welcomed and very comfortable. Beautiful garden, lovely walks from the back fence, yummy homebaked treats, immaculate rooms and lots of local knowledge... More

We stayed here for just one night, and our hosts Dave and Trish couldn't do enough for us! Our room was gorgeous-immaculate and comfortable with a beautiful view of the mountains. The breakfast was delicious (everything i'm sure was home made), with yummy museli and fresh fruit salad. Dave even organised our horse treking activity for us the following day... More

I ended up staying here alone, as my friends pulled out of the holiday at short notice, but it didnt feel isolated or alone being at Avalance. First of all, everyone I met in Wanaka was delightful - really friendly and helpful. A kind lady driving by saw me with my suitcase and gave me a lift to Avalanche B... More

My Mum, a friend and I had the pleasure of stumbling upon Avalanche B&B during our month long tour of New Zealand. Of all the places we stayed, this was the absolute tops. With a beautifully arranged self contained downstairs apartment, a garden brimming with blooming flowers and incredible mountain views channelling into the glacier, this place is true peace... More

Warm welcome to a lovely setting. Home made muffins - delightful when warm! Well prepared breakfast. A clean, roomy and comfortable B&B. Choice of eating places nearby and wonderful walks close by. Trish and David could not have been more helpful. A most enjoyable 3 day stay.
