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...

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.
