“A must-stay-at in Wanaka!”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

An absolute recommendation to stay at if in Wanaka. Christine is a very friendly and welcoming host. Although we only managed to stay for a night, we made full use of the lovely kitchen facilities for cooking dinner. We were definitely impressed with the overall cosy and homey feel of the cottage and its facilities. Would definitely stay at Peak Sport Chalet again when visiting Wanaka the next time.

This is definitely the best B&B/motel/apartment we stayed at in our 14 nights in NZ. Everything was perfect. The hosts, Alex & Christine, were absolutely wonderful & helpful. Christine even prepared some great welcome cookies. Alex gave lots of lovely suggestions when we arrived. Christine specially came over afterwards to say ‘Hi’. The apartment was tastefully & beautifully decorated. Super cosy & made you feel at home. We were a couple but the apartment would also be perfect for families with small kids as they even provided toys & there was a lovely backyard for them to play. The apartment provided privacy with the hosts were on hand for any questions. Everything was spotlessly clean. It was so comfortable to just relax on the sofa or the benches in the backyard.

Do note that this B&B is located in the residential area so might be easy to miss. Only gripe was the free wifi was a bit weak in the apartment. We highlighted this to Alex & he was extremely apologetic about it & promised will look into it. All in all, an absolutely perfect stay! Wish we could stay longer!

Our host Alex gave us a great welcome and good advice about hiking and dining. The chalet rooms were spacious , warm and comfortable and well-equipped. Strongly recommend. We stayed two nights in this lovely area and wish it could have been longer.

Good travel tips from the hosts .They are warmly and kindly.
The chalet has a fully equipped kitchen, the environment is very lovely and I think the host has put great effort to create a warm feeling to guest.

Very warm welcome from the friendly owner. Gave a lot of insider information to my wife and me what to do, to get the best out of the stay in Wanaka. Studio was spacious and very clean. Great value for money and strong recommendation when you want to stay in Wanaka. Do not miss the breakfast! Best breakfast we had during weeks of vacation.

Additional information to one of the previous entries regarding a tourist who got stuck in Haast - there is information already in Franz Josef and at the entrance of the Haast Pass that the road is closed starting from 6 p.m. You have to be fair, the accomodation can´t do anything about that, so you better watch out :-)

Sadly we only had one night in Wanaka but had such a comfortable stay, that we wished we had more time to stay longer. The chalet has a comfortable bed, the kitchen area has everything you need, good bathroom and storage space for luggage and spotlessly clean! Lovely private patio area with yummy cakes on arrival. Breakfast is superb, served in front of log fire. Alex and Christine are lovely hosts and were very knowledgeable regarding activities and good places to eat. Will definitely book here for our next trip to beautiful Wanaka.
Oh and a great price too, excellent value for money!

We booked for one night and stayed two. The chalet had a seperate bedroom and a kitchen/living room with a wood burning stove. The kitchen area is we'll equipped including a dishwasher. The bed is comfortable, the chalet is very quiet. Good, considerate hosts. Many thanks.
