George's House was one of those places you are glad you found. Online searches are not always the best; bad photos, or conflicting reviews can make for tough decisions. This place has it all, location, comfort, size, all the little extras that go in to a quality rental. There are two bedrooms with the nicest beds and comforters. There is a full kitchen that even had spices and some other food items , possibly left from previous renters, that made cooking that much easier. The bookshelf was well stocked with guides and novels, there is a nice tv and stereo, washer and drying rack, and a semi-private back yard patio with table and chairs. In cooler months, there is a wood burning stove. It is an easy walk to shops, restaurants and the lake from the house. I would gladly book it again.

Used prior to a tramping trip out of Wanaka this central accommodation was welcoming, clean, modern and had everything we needed for a couple of nights stay.

George's house proved an excellent place to stay. It is well equipped and very clean. The location is close to central Wanaka but quiet.

Liked best: Clean and well equiped
Liked least: shortage of drawers/shelves and no blinds on some windows
