Our three nights at the Wanaka Homestead Lodge was absolutely beautiful. The accomodation is beautiful and has everything from a comfortable room to a lovely lounge area. It is within walking distance to the beautiful lake and an easy walk into town. We were there in July so the weather was chilly but the fire in the lounge area was always warm and inviting and we used this space to relax after a day of walking or sightseeing. Karen was wonderful as our host and ensured that we had all the advice we needed about places to eat and sites to see and the cooked breakfast was lovely. We had a wonderful stay.

Karen was an incredible host. We loved all the tips and insights that she shared with us, including where to eat - we even managed a table at Kika which was awesome. Karen even rang the DOC to find out if the roads were safe to drive to Rob Roy Glacier. It was a beautiful warm home away from home, with enough privacy and separation to feel like we were also alone. Loved the breakfast too.

Karen was most welcoming and helpful for first-timers to Wanaka area. Our room was so comfy and cozy , but spacious , with a great view . The bathroom is top-notch. The breakfast was delicious and cooked to order along with plenty of cereals and yogurt and fruits . They have a lovely outdoor space and even washer and dryer. Right across the street ( in back) is a lovely park and path leading to the beautiful lake and the famous Wanaka tree! Can’t be better !!

Loved the easy access to several stunning walks. Wanaka park station, a stunning sprawling garden is across the road. Cottage accommodated 7 people comfortably. Use of bikes was appreciated.
