Rosie and Steve felt like old friends the moment we arrived. They have built a little piece of paradise and do a beautiful job of welcoming you to share their lovely spot. We were greeted with an invitation of a glass of wine and conversation on the deck and some great dinner recommendations. Steve said he'd have the hot tub open for us when we returned from dinner and it was fabulous. We had the place to ourselves and could walk from our room and private terrace directly to the hot tub. We retired to our warm, inviting, and very comofrtable bedroom to find homemade cookies waiting for us by the mini fridge and coffee setup.
Rosie offered to make whatever we wanted for breakfast at whatever time suited us. We were convinced that yogart and fruit would be plenty but when she mentioned blueberry pancakes Alex's smile convinced her that would be lovely. Wow, what a delicious breakfast with a fabulous view.
Their beautiful home is just a few mintues from the shops and restuarants of Wanaka and overlooks Lake Wanaka and the mountains. We didn't want to leave. I would recommend at least a couple of days here to really enjoy this fantastic spot. We loved it!
