Don and Lorraine are both very welcoming and went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was hassle free. And their breakfast's are an amazing to start every day!... More

The room has a nice view of the lake and the sticky forest from the balkony. The west loft is nicely decorated, has a big comfy bed and provides a well... More

We had the best time staying at Aspiring Lofts with Don and Lorraine! It is one of the most memorable stays we had, visiting New Zealand. My parents had a beautiful room with a balcony and a nice view of the mountains. I stayed in a 'basement' apartment, which was very spacious. It had a terrace and view of the... More

My partner and I stayed here for two nights in March while visiting Wanaka. Although it was a short stay Don and Lorraine made us feel at home straight away and provided a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. The rooms are upstairs and separated from the house enough that you get your own space, and views! Very comfortable accomodation with a... More

We stayed at Aspiring Lofts for three nights and could easily have stayed longer. The room was immaculate, tastefully decorated and very comfortable.

We stayed three nights in Wanaka and the West Room was just perfect for us. As others have said it is immaculately clean with quality bed linen and its own mini kitchen.
