We stayed only one night, but the experience is really woundful and pleasant, thouht this B & B is thousand miles away from our country, we feel like at home. Cozy and friendly, Trish and David made us as comfort as they can, the purely homemade breakfast is health and delicious, it is a amazing memory for all of us....

Thank you for your review. It's great to hear that guests feel at home when they are so far from their own home. We enjoy meeting people from all over the world. I'm glad you enjoyed the view and breakfast supplies and also learning to use a BBQ.

Thank you Trish and Davy for a wonderful stay. Everything is beautifully appointed, kitchen well equipped, beds very warm and comfortable. The garden and view to the glacier are idyllic. The home baking and breakfast was first class, and our every need was met with a smile. The girls all loved Poppy, and are still talking about her, and the...

Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. We enjoyed meeting you and your family and Poppy is missing all the attention the children gave her during your stay. I hope we see you back here for that skiing holiday in the near future.

We had a wonderful stay for 2 nights at Avalanche Bed and Breakfast, which was really cosy and like staying in friends' house. Trish made us feel welcome from the outset with breakfast and some delicious goodies, including home-baked muffins and heart-shaped chocolates in celebration of our honeymoon. We were given some useful advice of what to visit in Wanaka....

This B and B is stunning and excellent value. Trish and Davy are fantastic hosts and warmly welcome you to their home and garden. Our room, on the ground floor with doors out to a perfectly tended garden ( and croquet set up for your use) was huge and beautifully done out. Facilities faultless. It's as much a perfect place...

We stayed for 2 nights in March 2013. The studio accommodation was delightful and and more than satisfied all our needs for a relaxing stay. Peaceful location with a great view of Mt Avalanche in the distance and beyond the famous Rippon Wine Estate which was immediately over the garden fence. Bell birds singing in the garden only enhanced the...

Trish and Davey were helpful and friendly hosts. Trish provided homemade granola, cookies, and muffins daily along with other ingredients for a luscious breakfast every morning. We took a beautiful and well worth it hike to a glacier they recommended, and they helped us with tickets for a flight to Milford Sound. The apartment was clean and fresh with cooking...
