We travelled round New Zealand for several weeks staying in 9 different places and Wanaka Homestead stands out as the best! The rooms are clean, modern and large yet manage to feel homely. Our host was very welcoming and there's plenty of useful things included in your stay - a free laundry room, bikes to borrow (also free), a barbecue... More

Hello Matt, Thank you for your review, so glad you had a great time with us here and in Wanaka. It's still a bit chilly, I had to put the fire on again last night. I got the key by the way, thanks again for that. Maybe on your next trip we will see you again. Warm regards, Claire More

Booked 2 nights here as part of our south island trip. Pleasantly surprised when Sue upgraded our room from the lodge to the cottage as there was a large family staying at the lodge at the same time. The cottage was comfortable, clean and a good base for skiing as well as sight seeing.

My wife and I stayed here while on a skiing trip. It was great! The location is perfect for skiing Treble Cone. Our room was warm and comfortable, and breakfast was delicious. The building has a lot of charm, and the hot tub and drying room were especially appreciated after a day on the slopes. The owners were friendly, accommodating... More

From the moment we walked into reception at this location, our experience was impressive. We stayed on a Tuesday night and were lucky enough to have our room upgraded and to be the only ones staying in the Homestead. The location was great - central but quiet and adjacent to a park and the lake. As an amateur photographer, I... More

We stayed here for 2 nights last week, and it was all wonderful. The room was lovely, and we especially liked the common room with the log fire, music, DVD's and games. Every little thing was thought of. David and Sue were great, really helpful and informative and cooked a great breakfast. Thanks again-we'll be back!

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
