Absolutely stunning accommodation in Wanaka! Anne & Steve are wonderful hosts who on a daily basis went above & beyond to ensure we had a perfect stay. The property is glorious, peaceful, quiet, with everything you could possibly need & just a short trip to town. The rooms have all the modern facilities but still retains that country homestead feel... More

I was visiting Wanaka with some friends and this was the perfect place to relax after a long day of skiing or exploring. Steven and Anne-Mie are truly gracious hosts and accommodated my erratic am schedule! We had a beautiful evening just sitting in the dining room and chatting. Gorgeous views are cleanliness is impeccable. Worth the price in my... More

Steven & Anna-Mae, wow, what great people! Luxurious doesn't cut it, they need to invent a new word just for this place. The rooms are exquisite, the grounds are impeccable, and the view is everything you would hope for when visiting New Zealand. I've never experienced being cozy in such a spacious place before in my life. I can't wait... More

We loved Wanaka Haven so much last year, we came back for more this year - for more of the spectacular views, magnificent rooms and three course breakfasts - but above all for Steven and Anne-Mie's warm and generous hospitality - which is what really sets this place apart. Do yourself a favour and settle in here for a few... More

Wanaka Haven was just amazing. The rooms are beautiful, modern and sophisticated, and the attention to detail was excellent. Ann-Mie and Steven were warm and welcoming and made our stay so comfortable. The breakfasts were wonderful and throughout our stay, there were always home-baked cakes, biscuits and fruit available, along with tea and coffee. We stayed three nights and really... More

We only had one night in Wanaka, and kicked ourselves (well, each other) because we wished we could have stayed longer. Steven and Anne-Mie are ideal people to host such a very agreeable place as Wanaka Haven. They exude warmth and sophistication, and welcome their guests as if they were old friends. The rooms are understated and very modern, with... More

We spent 18 days in NZ on our vacation and this is the best experience in terms of our NZ accommodation. The place is so beautiful and spacious we didn't feel like going anywhere else in Wanaka during our 2 nights stay there.
