Very lovely place! We only stayed for one night and really couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in. David and Sue were so welcoming and nice and made us really feel special. It's very close to the town centre but far enough from the noise and most people. We loved the free bikes and the spa pool... More

From our arrival to our departure this place was without fault. We stayed for two weeks and enjoyed every minute. Sue and Dave were amazing hosts who went over and above to ensure every family member enjoyed not only the accommodation but the Wanaka region in total. After a skiing accident saw my wife and one of our children in... More

My husband and I booked 6 night at the Wanaka Homestead Lodge for our honeymoon in July 2014. It proved to be an outstanding decision as we had the lodge almost to ourselves for the entire time. The lodge rooms as all beautiful but we had the Master room and it was wonderful. Huge room and bathroom, ample space and... More

We stayed at Wanaka Homestead on the nights of 6 & 7 May. We were the only guests these 2 nights in the Lodge, so we basically had the house for us! The room was beautiful, the bed very comfortable and the shower very pleasant. The living room with the fireplace, where we watched a movie on the big screen... More

We enjoyed our stay at one of the cozy little cottages. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The hostess was friendly and accommodating. She recommended several places to eat. Both places we tried were wonderful. The Homestead would be the perfect place to use as a home base while exploring Wanaka and the rest of the central... More

From the time we arrived to when we sadly had to leave , our hosts made us feel very welcome. The rooms downstairs were ideal, great lounge to relax in, with a bookcase full of books, sadly no time to read them all:-)))). The house is in a great spot, you can walk down to the lake and enjoy the... More

This was truly a memorable stay. The house is beautiful - large, comfortable rooms with everything you could possibly need for a stay in wonderful Wanaka. The hot tub was perfect after a hike on one day, and a horse ride the next. It absolutely helped with the muscles and was a real treat. The lounge room is a standout... More

What a great little spot to find in Wanaka. The house was very comfortable and the hosts were welcoming. We enjoyed breakfast and using the bikes provided to ride around town. It's best for couples wanting a quiet location. We would definitely stay here again.

We loved this place - it's just cosy and comfortable. The managers are really lovely and we felt at home straight away in our little 'Ruby' cottage. There is a lovely garden, outdoor hot tub, outdoor and indoor fireplaces, a laundry and a spacious breakfast and lounge room for B&B guests. Everything is kept in the same comfy cottage or... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at Wanaka Homestead. Dave & Sue were friendly hosts, suggesting dinner spots and making reservations for us. They served us a lovely cooked to order hot breakfast each morning. We were 2 parties, so we stayed in 2 rooms, each of which was good sized with comfy beds, excellent wi-if, and clean bathrooms...
