Thought we must have walked into a property straight out of Home Beautiful or House and Garden. Stunning does not do this property justice !! Views to Die For from every single room, even our bathroom ! We did not even close our drapes to sleep, we didn't want to miss the view as the sun rose. I don't think I could ever tire looking out that bedroom window.The room was beautifully appointed and very well designed with ample space for your luggage. You even had your own bar fridge and tea/coffee facilities plus a variety of glasses and even plates and cutlery if you wanted to enjoy a snack on your private patio. Steve and Rosie's garden is award worthy - exquisite. Rosie and Steve were the most charming hosts, very warm and gracious. Rosie served a delicious breakfast each morning and both her and Steve were happy to share their local knowledge and tips on the best things to see and do. Wanaka is the most stunning area and we just hope Rosie and Steve are operating when we return as we would not want to stay anywhere else in Wanaka.
