Our stay with Brent and Gill was probably one of the best stays we had in NZ. Besides the nice stuff, -- the property was kept immaculate with little touches like chocolates in the room, nice linen, soaps, shampoos and bath salts; Gill served a scrumptious breakfast every morning including freshly baked muffins and fresh squeezed orange juice --- but above all, the hosts are wonderful, warm people who went out of their way to make our one unplanned day such a surprising treat! We had to change our plans last minute and stayed an extra day. Not sure what to do we asked Gill and Brent for ideas. And they offered to take us out on their boat! At no charge! We went all the way to the end of the South Arm of Lake Te Anau where we stopped and Brent threw the fishing line for a bit (did not catch anything!). It was such a lovely day for it too. Then they recommended a helicopter ride and arranged for us to be picked from their home, straight into the helicopter! This ride with Fiordland Helicopters (highly, highly recommend!) - over Dusky Sound and Doubtful Sound - turned out to be a wonderful recommendation and was easily the most spectacular part of our stay in NZ (which included a boat tour of Milford Sound and an overnight trip of Doubtful Sound, so there was real competition). Besides, it was nice to unwind with them at the end of the day over the wine and cheese that Gill served up (all part of the service again!). Tip: For a real story, ask Brent about the time he got kidnapped in Nigeria. Best wishes for your plans for a B&B in Wanaka, Gill!
