We were greeted warmly by Jo and Ian upon our late arrival, who showed us our charming room with a great view of the mountains. Jo provided restaurant recommendations around the city, and we received a free beer/glass of wine per person at their favorite restaurant (Finchy's). She also makes great pancakes for breakfast. Be sure to ask Ian about houses built of hay bales.
Most likely you will have a car, but it is about a 20 minute walk to the city. Jo & Ian are great hosts and we would definitely stay here again whenever we make it back to Wanaka.
