We stayed at Wanaka Lakehouse in June 2011 for two nights (Friday and Saturday night). We were fortunate enough to have the place largely to ourselves since we were the only people to have booked at the time. The lakehouse features some of the nicest luxuries you could ask for - inbuilt swimming pool, jacuzzi, pizza oven, fireplace, games room,... More

Absolutely lovely house. Fantastic place to have a wedding venue. We had 42 guests in our wedding and that was just perfect size. All the guests just loved the house and views. Beautiful outdoor area around the house. Detailing all around the house is so fine. There was plenty of space in the living room for the band and dance.... More

We had a nice visit in Wanaka. House is gorgeous. This would be a great place for a family, especially with children. We cooked steaks on the deck and enjoyed the beautiful views. Breakfast provisions are left in the refrigerator so you have complete privacy. It was a little warm and we bought a fan.

What a fantastic place to stay. Made from enviromentally friendly material, this accommodation is spacious and has room for just couples or for a family. It's a romantic setting and the accommodation is excellent. Feel like a dip in the pool? Well its pretty much next to the lounge area. Very private and so relaxing. Finish with a spa or... More

We spent 3 nights at the Wanaka lakehouse, what a perfect place. Stunning view and location, healthy house, great pool and spa with no chlorine. Great facilities, lots of room. Super charming. We'll be back.

We were married in the Wanaka Lakehouse and spent four spectacular nights there taking advantage of a "wedding package" that included the most incredible massages and facials, a private wine tasting with the owner Michael, and a sumptuous dinner on our wedding night prepared by our own chef! The Lakehouse itself, and surrounding views are stunning and the accommodations are... More
