“Luxury B & B accommodation in idyllic location at affordable prices”
Reviewed August 1, 2009

My husband and I spent two nights at this gorgeous B&B accommodation - architecturally-designed, positioned on a hill, overlooking stunning views of Lake Wanaka and a few minutes from the centre of Wanaka in the car. Rooms are spacious with luxurious furnishings, beautiful linen with your own personal sitting area outside with table and chairs. An added bonus is the dressing room with long rail to hang clothes (if you decide to unpack!) and a place to store the cases out of the way. Tea and coffee-making facilities had added little touches like the chocolates and biscuits and the breakfasts were delicious and plentiful.

Rosie and Steve's house was quite the most beautiful we had the pleasure of staying in during our month in NZ. Very welcoming and friendly, they could not do enough to make our stay perfect and there were laundry and ironing facilities too. Their garden is an acre of well-appointed and well-kept borders etc with tennis courts and a spa pool....and more than that, total peace and quiet. (It makes me drool just to think of the memories!)

As it was St Valentine's Day while we were there I deliberately selected something a bit more special but we both thought the $205 per night for the room (£37) inexpensive and would not hesitate to book again. In our opinion Wanaka is the crème-de-la-crème of the South Island and not to be missed.

Wanaka itself has plenty of eating places and coffee stops but for us, the place to go for an evening meal was Relishes on the main street.

Another personal recommendation is the Eco Wanaka trip to the island of Mou Waho - a cruise on Lake Wanaka and a guided nature walk to see all the flora, fauna and birds - a real bird-lover's "must" and a truly wonderful day on the lake. Chris picked us up from Beacon Lodge and returned us 6 hours later. We plan to return to both Beacon Lodge and re-do this lake tour at some point. There are many more attractions nearby but we were very limited with time and our itinerary required us to move on.

A truly lovely place.

Best B & B we stayed in on our 2 week trip to the South Island. Beautiful new house with amazing views. Bedrooms very private, comfortable, with great views. Terrific hot tub and outdoor fireplace. Hosts, Rosie and Steve, could not have been nicer and more helpful.
