Don’t let the name fool you… this is NO tin shed. Instead, this relatively new 5-star luxury accommodation is a jewel in Lake Wanaka. The Tin Tub Lodge is located just outside the downtown area on a hillside overlooking the Lake and surrounding mountains. We spent 5 nights here exploring the Lake Wanaka area. Our days were filled with hiking stunning areas such as the Rob Roy Glacier, followed by a lovely bottle of NZ wine at night sitting in lounge chairs outside our room staring at the amazing views of Lake Wanaka and surrounding mountains. This place is beautiful and a labor of love by the owners, Trish and Barry, who are adding on stand-alone luxury studio rooms adjacent to the main house. During our visit, two additional villas were under construction. The fit-out of our entire room and the bathroom were all 5-star and a lot of thought was put into the details. Additional amenities on the property included an outdoor patio with lounge chairs, his & hers outdoor soaking tubs (overlooking the stunning view of the lake and mountains), tennis court, gym, outdoor patio & barbecue, vegetable garden and newly planted fruit trees and a coup of chickens who work hard to produce eggs for Trish’s fantastic homemade muffins and other breakfast fare. Our wonderful hosts went out of their way to assure our visit was top notch. They helped with everything from recommending and booking activities to letting us use their laundry. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend a stay here…in fact, we plan to come back again.
