“As good as it gets”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2010

We had a fabulous stay at Limetree Lodge. Our hosts, Rebecca and Sally were wonderfully hospitable and continually strived to make our stay at both the lodge and Wanaka as pleasurable as possible. We had two young children (5&2) with us and they were entertained by feeding the animals every morning and running around in the vast open spaces surrounding the lodge.

The rooms were stylishly appointed and are easily the rival of a good 5 star boutique hotel. Breakfasts were excellent - especially the home made museli! And the views were magnificent.

Our stay here was without flaw and it is a long time since I have thought or written that.

Thank you.

It is all about the small touches. Lime Tree does this very well. Thanks for a wonderful and relaxing stay.

Sally & Rebecca balance very well the Guest House requirement of introducing you to other Guests & inviting you to enjoy joint evening drinks and nibbles (the food was sensational) , but still ensuring that you maintain a total feel of privacy & relaxation.

Of our 3 weeks in New Zealand we enjoyed our stay at The Lime Tree Lodge the best. This was down to Sally and Rebecca who run it, their attention to detail, kindness and a feeling that this is home not just a stop over. We felt that they go the extra mile which makes such a difference when you're so far from home and nothing was too much trouble. Beautiful gardens and very peaceful.

My husband and I recently stayed at Lime Tree Lodge for a second time this year. We so enjoyed our 4 night stay in July that we decided to return for a week this time. Rebecca and Sally run an outstanding boutique lodge, no detail is overlooked and they have an instinctive flair for how to make their guests feel completely pampered and at ease, and we had the sense that were visiting good friends. The guest areas are modern and impeccably clean, and the gardens beautiful.
We stayed in the Black Peak Suite on both occasions, which has a very large master bedroom, dressing room, bathroom with tub & shower, small bunk-bed room and a lovely lounge area ( with fireplace & kitchenette). The decor is uncomplicated, high quality and comfortable. Lovely views of the mountains from the bedroom, which has doors opening up onto the garden. The Black Peak Suite has its own entrance and is located away from the other guest rooms, so there was zero disturbance from other guests.
We loved Rebecca's breakfast with homemade goodies, eggs from the resident chickens and delicious coffee!
The lodge is located in the countryside, about an 8 minute drive from Wanaka center, on a large, well maintained piece of property, with good views of distant mountains and surrounding hills.
We will definitely be back!

We had a wonderful stay – the second for my husband and me and first for our kids, parents and friends. The suites were comfortable, cozy and well-equipped. We will miss the delectable hot breakfasts (especially the amazing grilled portabellos, multigrain bread and eggs fresh from their own hens), tasty water, friendly ‘pets’, superb fire-places...and Bronna's lovely meals with lots of NZ Pinot. Rebecca and Sally provided help with bookings, reservations, a ride-on toy for our little one, and special dietary requirements. It made for a perfect trip!

In the middle of a hectic year our fours days at Lime Tree Lodge was a godsend. We had heard great reviews about the lodge, but any expectations we had were exceeded by a mile. Rebecca and Sally are attentive friendly hosts who could not have done more for us. We will be back !
