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...

This was our first "B&B" experience and we loved it. Dave & Sue were wonderful hosts. The breakfast was awesome. Fed us for our full day of hiking and biking. We stayed 3 nights, I would have been sad if we stayed any less. It is a short,nice walk to town. Great location.

My wife and I had a king room facing the back upstairs in the lodge this month during our overnight stay. We were happy. It was homey, cozy, and featured two wonderful people working to check people in and provide recommendations for the area. They also served a tasty full breakfast. We also enjoyed chatting with fellow guests at the... More

The owners are helpful and nice, dave knows a lot about local activities and was very helpful in deciding what to do. Breakfast is nice - cereal and cooked. The room was nice, although fridge and kettle are communal and only downstairs. Laundry facilities are free. Location is 1 min drive from town, just along the lake.

Thank you for providing a great experience to us this time. I visited for the first time in Wanaka. But look at this Lodge and Lake Wanaka, came to like Wanaka at first sight. Always, for us who live in Tokyo called "Concrete Jungle", it was with a splendid experience not to be possible for words. Hospitality and facilities of... More

We spent two nights here and would highly recommend this place. It felt like staying in a home with friends! Quaint setting near the lake and close enough to walk to town. The rooms were clean and comfortable and breakfast was prepared to order! They even went out of their way to prepare a fresh fruit dish without pineapple when... More

Very dated room with no air-con, a hole in the ceiling, broken blinds and broken kettle to name some faults. Turns out that the "Continental breakfast" is cereal, no joke there was 4 choices of cereal and a bit of fruit! The hot tub doesn't have bubbles, it's just a heated pool. If it wasn't for the bathroom I'd have... More
