We stayed 3 nights in the wonderfully spacious studio suite. Trish and Davey are perfect hosts and provided everything we could possibly need to make our stay enjoyable. Although we ate dinner out every evening, had we wanted to we could have cooked 'Cordon Bleu', the kitchen was so well equipped. Trish's baking is famed and second to none. The... More

One of the most delightful places we have stayed in. The accommodation was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The views across the garden to the snowfields of Mt Avalanche are just amazing, and it is an easy and beautiful walk into Wanaka along the lakeshore. Trish and Davey were perfect hosts, giving us lots of useful information about the area,... More

A lovely, spacious and very comfortable studio opening on to a large deck with private barbecue and a pretty garden. The room has stunning views over flowers, trees and meadows to the glacier in the distance. All this is just a short walk from the lakefront. Trish and Davey are marvelous hosts, full of useful ideas and guidance covering places... More

Great place to relax in the garden with a view of glacier after visiting beautiful Lake Wanaka. Trish makes excellent muffins too. Everything in perfect condition. Extra room for those traveling with family or friends.

We stayed in Trish's apartment for only 1 night, but so wish we had time to stay longer! The garden surrounds are sublime and extremely well manicured. In addition to this, it offers the most amazing view of a glacier, which seems somewhat surreal, but it's very true. The apartment is beautifully decked out with all the mode cons you... More

We stayed for two nights having chosen this B & B based on previous comments and were not disappointed. The studio room was spacious and well-appointed. The view from the patio over garden and farm fields to snow-capped mountains was superb.The breakfast was generous particularly the fruit and the best muesli we had anywhere.Highly recommended.
