Absolutely fabulous! Spacious and tastefully furnished, with all the comforts of home, plus warm and wonderful hosts who welcome you like old friends. Trish's homemade preserves and baked goodies are to die for. And her restaurant recommendations are spot on. Davy is a wealth of information on Wanaka and his Trike tours are a must - taking In some of the best sights accompanied by a highly entertaining running commentary. Stay there and be enchanted.

Thank you so much for both your reviews, the B & B and the trike tour with Adventure Wanaka. It was such a pleasure to have you both to stay here and to know that you enjoyed your Wanaka experience so much.
I always enjoy complimentary feedback on my home baking and preserves. Makes it all worthwhile!

When we saw the studio at Avalanche Bed & Breakfast we know we will love it. There is nothing that you would miss. Our hosts Trish and Davy could not be nicer. Both like to have guest – and you can feel at every minute. This B&B was one of our most beautiful accommodations on our journey around the South Island. We like to use the BBQ and had dinner with a view over the garden and the mountains. Thanks Trish and Davy for everything again. One of our best experiences was the Wanaka Lake Cruise with Davy. If you stay in Wanaka do this! We highly recommend this accommodation.

We stayed only one night, but the experience is really woundful and pleasant, thouht this B & B is thousand miles away from our country, we feel like at home. Cozy and friendly, Trish and David made us as comfort as they can, the purely homemade breakfast is health and delicious, it is a amazing memory for all of us. David had also guided us to make BBQ, we will definately remember this fantastic stay and hospitable host.

Thank you for your review. It's great to hear that guests feel at home when they are so far from their own home. We enjoy meeting people from all over the world.
I'm glad you enjoyed the view and breakfast supplies and also learning to use a BBQ.

Thank you Trish and Davy for a wonderful stay. Everything is beautifully appointed, kitchen well equipped, beds very warm and comfortable. The garden and view to the glacier are idyllic.

The home baking and breakfast was first class, and our every need was met with a smile.

The girls all loved Poppy, and are still talking about her, and the toy selection was also a highlight.

Trish and Davy are also extremely knowledgeable about the area and provided excellent recommendations about sites and attractions.

Hopefully we will return for a ski holiday in the future.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review.
We enjoyed meeting you and your family and Poppy is missing all the attention the children gave her during your stay.
I hope we see you back here for that skiing holiday in the near future.

We had a wonderful stay for 2 nights at Avalanche Bed and Breakfast, which was really cosy and like staying in friends' house. Trish made us feel welcome from the outset with breakfast and some delicious goodies, including home-baked muffins and heart-shaped chocolates in celebration of our honeymoon. We were given some useful advice of what to visit in Wanaka. The setting of the B&B and its beautiful garden on the edge of the countryside was idyllic and allowed us stunning views of the glacier up the valley. We particularly enjoyed the lift that Dave gave us on his bike to the restaurant at a local hotel! On our final morning we entertained Poppy in the garden and it was a real wrench to finally depart for the next stage of our trip.
