Lake Wanaka is a delightful place and the Aspiring Lofts give you a sense that you are living there, instead of visiting. There are 2 studio units above the garage, with a lovely little deck (adjoining the other, separated by a slatted wall, but still able to talk to the people on the other side if you want). The view... More

This is the perfect place to enjoy beautiful Wanaka. A peaceful place to stay with views of the lake that will stay with you for years. Aspiring Lofts is adjacent to the hosts family home - so you get the best of both worlds - your own space with home hospitality not far away. Don and Lorraine are fine examples... More

We spent an all too brief 1 night in Wanaka in February. Aspiring Lofts is well situated a short drive from the centre of town, in a quiet road with great views down to the lake. The self-contained apartment is modern, very comfortable and excellent value. Don and Lorraine were great hosts and made us very welcome during our stay.... More

Well equipped and modern facilities and fittings, but not suitable for those who find it hard to climb stairs as both units are are on the first floor. In the West Loft where we stayed there is a small (but large enough) refridgerator, 2 hotplates, jug and toaster plus a full set of cooking and dining utensils. We had a... More

Don and Lorraine are wonderful hosts and were perfectly fine with our changing schedules. Breakfasts were homemade (including Lorraine's muffins), dinner recommendations and reservations were spot-on, and the rooms and house felt brand new and immaculate. The view of the lake and mountains is great, we just wish we could have stayed longer!

We stayed two nights in the stylish self contained apartment which was well equipped and very comfortable.Don was very interesting and friendly and provided us with great breakfasts on both mornings. Lorraine made delicious muffins. He gave us good advice on what to do and where to eat. Both of which were great recommendations. Highly recommended.

Aspiring Lofts has two very well-equipped self- contained units. They are situated outside the hosts’ home and are accessed by a private flight of stairs. The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean and well-equipped with a small kitchen area containing a sink, fridge, hob, cutlery, crockery and tea/coffee making equipment. There are two comfortable armchairs, a large comfy bed and a... More

Just left a fabulous B and B in Lake Wanaka. Beautifully presented rooms well located, with own entrance from the main house. Great views to the mountains and lake. The host Don was very friendly with good suggestions on what to do, restaurants etc. The breakfast was delicious. All in all a great place to stay in comfort. Thank you
