“Our favorite B&B in NZ!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We enjoyed every moment of our stay here. Carla and Mike are wonderful hosts. Both afternoon snacks and breakfast were well made and tasty! I was amazed by the garden, the house, interior and the artwork, they are perfect, I took so many photos, Carla has very elegant taste. The best interior among the B&Bs we stayed in NZ. The official photos hardly show how beautiful the house is. Too bad that we only spent one night here.

We stayed at Beaconfield B&B at the end of our trip on the North and South Island. We booked online last minute, only one day before. Beaconfield's hosts were very helpful and flexible on making our stay possible with our 1-year old daughter who loved the place too and became buddies straight away with host Mike! Everything was perfect; a lovely, comfortable room with opening doors to the beautiful garden and stunning fews of the lake and the mountain range. A delicious fresh breakfast in the morning after a very good night of sleep (nice & quiet). If you are a wine-lover, Beaconfield is the right place for you too with its own little vineyard from which a very nice pinot noir wine is the result. We found the location great; you can make nice walks from the house to Wanaka village along the beautiful lake (takes around 30-40 minutes), as well as to the other quieter side of the lake. Besides many other walking tracks, there are a lot more options for activities. While on your way to the village, you will pass the yachting club, where you can rent a sailing boat if you are into sailing. Flights to the Sounds (a.o. Millford) can also be arranged for as well as kayaking. In any case, a heavenly and memorable stay is guaranteed!

Having access to the yard was a real bonus. Imagine looking over a vineyard onto lake and mountain! The room was attractive and comfortable, and the food was creative and delicious. Carla and Mike were very friendly and helpful, lending to a delightful stay in Wanaka.

If you plan a trip though Wanaka you could do no better than stay here. We stayed 2 nights and it was the best B&B experience of the trip so far. Stunning views from your bedroom, (pictures uploaded )a superb breakfast and wonderful hosts in Carla and Mike with all the care and attention you could wish for. First class experience and recommendation from us ,as our experience so far in NZ group hotels is less than wonderful, look for B&B like this one and you will have a wonderful trip

What more can you ask for in a B&B. Situated on a hill, a few minutes from the town, overlooking Lake Wanaka and the hills surrounding it; this is the perfect situation for a B&B. the bedrooms are very well appointed and roomy, the views from the patio can't be surpassed, Mike & Carla our hosts were very hospitable and provided excellent breakfasts. Mikes special version of Eggs Benedict was great and Carla's home cooked biscuits and cakes were to die for.
We had a great time and will certainly be back for more.

Room Tip: Both rooms were excellent

We stayed at this B & B for two nights in January and really enjoyed the fabulous location and luxurious accomodation. We were welcomed with home baking for afternoon tea and the breakfasts were excellent with a range of home grown fruits..Mike's cooked breakfasts were tasty and different from the usual offerings. Both Carla and Mike were easy to talk to and willing to offer any advice needed to make our stay in Wanaka one to remember. We would certainly stay there again.

What a nice stay. The hosts are very warm and welcoming,the place in perfect shape with a stunning view.
Located a bit outside of town, it's as lovely as they come in this area.
Take the stunning views, the friendly, knowledgable and friendly hosts and add a good home cooked breakfast ... What else is needed? Really enjoyed the time there.
