“"Everything you would want and more"”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

Craig and Michele's "piece of paradise" is wonderful, nothing was too much trouble for them from booking trips to bringing you a wonderful breakfast on a tray every morning. The cottage was everything you would want, spacious,very clean with a wonderful BBQ on decking overlooking fantastic views. This was our favourite place in New Zealand. Michele and craig you shoul be very proud, you made us feel like friends, thank you so much for a wonderful stay.

Craig and Michele's cottage was absolutely fantastic, set outside a lovely small town on the edge of a beautiful lake, within a stunning mountain area. One of our best days in NZ was driving up an unmade road into the mountains and then a hike to the Rob Roy Glacier. Unbelievable! They both took real care of us from the start and you felt that nothing was too much trouble. Craig and Michele were extremely friendly and made you feel as if you lived there. Lake Wanaka was the best place we stayed in South Island; the town was pretty, on the edge of the lake and the scenery around was breathtaking. If we go back we would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: phone ahead a good few days

We stayed at Alpine View Lodge B&B for one night, and I can really say everything about it was wonderful. From the friendly reception upon arriving there, to the beautiful spacious room, the lovely garden and view, it was everything we'd hoped for and more. It was clear from the beginning that our hosts Michele and Craig were very passionate about their "piece of paradise", and the enthusiasm with which they shared their knowledge of the area, was both contagious and helpful. Highly recommended!

Alpine View Lodge exceeded our expectations in all respects. Michele and Craig made us extremely welcome and our accomodation with its mezzanine bedroom, sitting room/kitchen and private sundeck were absolutely perfect. The view from the deck is spectacular, so much so that we just bought some meat and fish and salad and BBQ'd every night, eating our meal overlooking the mountains as the sun went down. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and the accomodation deserves its Hospitality Award status. Breakfast (included in the price) was lovely and the little extras each morning were great.
Ask about the Jet boat trip to Mt. Inspiring National Park - Craig organised it for us!
10 mins by car to town, restaurants, shops, the lake and touristy stuff.

We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and also your trip with River Journeys. Many guests do just as you did and BBQ most evenings, even though we are only a short 5 minute drive to town and all the great restaurants.

Many thanks again Sue.

We stayed at the Alpine View Lodge at Wanaka for one night. What a charming lodge and very welcoming hosts. The room was more than we expected and good value for the price. Memorable touches such as home made muffins to greet us and a delicious continental breakfast which was included in the price. The room was comfortable and has a lovely view of the distant mountains. We would recommend this accommodation and would stay there again.
