My wife and I stayed for 10 nights over the 2013 Easter break. What a wonderful host!
This is the home you stay in when you're not staying at home.Warm, comfortable, beautiful garden, great views and amazing muffins! Everything for a relaxing holiday has been thought of and catered for.As a bonus, it's top value. Thanks Trish.

We stayed at Avalanche B&B for 3 nights and it was really comfortable and homely. Trish is such a good host - she provided us with a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit and homemade muesli in the morning - yum! She also gave us some really good tips on what to see and do in Wanaka - hiking up to the Rob Roy glacier, a beautiful walk around the lake, and an evening at the local boutique cinema with comfy sofas and delicious cookies! I recomend going on a fishing trip run by her husband Davey - a really relaxing day on the lake and we ate the fish we caught for dinner which was cool! Thanks Trish and Davey :)

We stayed for 2 nights in March 2013. The studio accommodation was delightful and and more than satisfied all our needs for a relaxing stay. Peaceful location with a great view of Mt Avalanche in the distance and beyond the famous Rippon Wine Estate which was immediately over the garden fence. Bell birds singing in the garden only enhanced the beauty of this location on the outskirts of Wanaka. Trish and Davy were the perfect friendly hosts and ensured that our short stay was very memorable and one we would like to repeat in the future. Maybe next time to join Davy on that luxury boat.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. I'm glad you appreciated the view and location at Avalanche B & B. The Bellbirds are singing as I write this as they do almost every day. I hope we do see you back here and the boat will be waiting to take you on that scenic cruise on the Lake.

We had a great three nights here and really enjoyed our stay. Trish and Davy looked after us really well - we had an amazing few hours fishing on the lake with Davy the day we arrived. Very comfortable accommodation and delicious homemade muffins, fruit salad and goodies in the fridge for breakfast. We enjoyed playing croquet on the lawn as well. Highly recommended.

Trish and Davey were helpful and friendly hosts. Trish provided homemade granola, cookies, and muffins daily along with other ingredients for a luscious breakfast every morning. We took a beautiful and well worth it hike to a glacier they recommended, and they helped us with tickets for a flight to Milford Sound. The apartment was clean and fresh with cooking facilites, a private patio, and gorgeous views of the mountains, countryside, and Trish's lovely flower garden. It felt like home away from home, and we recommend Wanaka and this property highly!

Thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review for us. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay here. We were happy to help arrange your Milford flight and recommend the walk to the Rob Roy Glacier, both spectacular trips from Wanaka. Thank you also for the feedback on the breakfast supplies and baking. Let me know if you would like any recipes!

We stayed here in early February 2013. It was so good that we stayed for five nights. Great accommodation in a lovely setting with wonderful views and really nice extra touches ( muffins, fruit, fresh flowers and croquet to name only a few ) only a short walk from the lakeside. Trish and Davy are fantastic hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. We will return as we regard Avalanche as amongst the best B&B's anywhere.

Whilst travelling around the South Island we were looking for somewhere to overnight in Wanaka. Spotted Avalanche on Trip Advisor and the night we needed was the only one available that week. We can understand why!

Trish, Davy and Poppy the dog gave us a very warm welcome into their home. With cookies, delicious muffins and fresh orange juice waiting for us we quickly settled in, before being offered a guided tour of the local area by Davy and Poppy as they were going out for a walk.

The Studio Room was spacious with a kitchen area, sofa, table and chairs and a fantastic view!
Outside we had use of a private decking area complete with barbecue.

Breakfast was continental style with a lovely fresh fruit salad, cereals and bread for toast with home made jams.

Our only regret was we could only stay the one night.

Many Thanks
