What a beautiful luxurious lodge equipped with everything you could possibly need and even more. Lovely warm hospitable Pauline and John are the wonderful hosts and nothing is too much of a problem, from sumptuous breakfasts and pre dinner drinks and nibbles, to suggestions and bookings of activities and dinners, to arranging transport to and from dinner spots. The lodge... More

We had a wonderful time and wished we had stayed longer than 3 nights with Pauline and John(ny)! We can't think of a more hospitable and caring experience! We stayed in the black peak suite perfect for our family of 4 Absolutely loved a cooked breakfast from Carol while Pauline planned our activities and made bookings for us. Then would... More

This lodge deserves more than five stars!! My fiance and I stayed here the day before and the night of our wedding. It was one of the most memorable parts of our trip to New Zealand (after our wedding, of course!). The owners were away, but we could not have asked for better hosts in their place. Lynda and Kate...

Came straight from UK and so a bit jet lagged. The welcome was amazing and personal; nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are lovely, stunning even. There is an amazing lounge/dining room with fire,books, games, TV and DVD. The pool was a bit cool but the hot tub well used. Breakfast was individually cooked to order. As always it... More

By far the most iconic hospitality experience in our 2.5 week tour of the South Island. Located 5-10 mins drive outside Wanaka, the Lodge is situated on a beautiful plot of land with great views of the surrounding mountains. It's a new property so everything is shiny new (opened in 2014 I think). But the reception by the owners- Pauline... More

If you want to go to a beautiful place and feel totally at home and pampered you must stay here. They even offered a r/t ride to town (close by) so we could "enjoy" our evening to the fullest. Pauline and John are the ultimate hosts and the accommodations were super clean and comfy. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Let me tell you, Pauline and John are one of the kindest people I met in all my life of travels. Pauline is one hell of a character with devilishly delicious sense of humor.

We spent four nights at Lime Tree Lodge in early January. It was a superb visit, very relaxing and with everything possible catered for. The lodge is about five minutes drive out of Wanaka, on lovely grounds. Each of the rooms has access straight to the gardens and the private pool area.
