It takes special people to be able to welcome strangers into their own home and make them feel like family and Rosie and Steve do this perfectly. Upon arriving, my partner and myself were warmly greeted by Rosie and shown to our beautiful room. The room is very spacious with a stunning bathroom (shower is amazing) and plenty of storage space. Outside, you have your own private balcony with stunning views of the lake as well as a Hot Tub. Throughout our 4 night stay, Rosie and Steve made us feel like we were staying with family, always warm and gracious hosts. On our last night, we were fortunate enough to have a bbq dinner with them as well as another travelling couple out on their deck. While Wanaka itself is just breath-taking, staying at Beacon Lodge made all the difference for us. We will forever have fond memories of our time here and a big part of that is in credit to Rosie and Steve for sharing their home with us. We are planning on coming back to Wanaka in winter and we will stay again at Beacon Lodge. Thank you Rosie and Steve, you have given us a holiday to truly remember. Jonathan and Rebecca.
