We had a delightful stay at Wanaka House. The house and it's facilities are excellent, the Spa wasn't available at the time of our stay which was disappointing, but other than that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. At 2.5km from Lake Wanaka's waterfront (approx.) it's an easy stroll or bike into town, yet far enough out to be peaceful and...

Tidy family friendly cottage. Warm with lovely fire. We enjoyed using the spa. The bikes could do with being serviced. One was missing half a pedal and I don't think they were very safe. The Wifi in the cottage was barely fast enough for browsing and would not be adequate for you needed it for work or study.

Loved our stay at Wanaka Cottage! The property is well maintained and comfy. It is also located a short drive away from the Lake and Town Center. Highly recommend the cottage for a couple who are visiting Wanaka. Do check out the coffee shop (Florence's) next door for breakfast!

We stayed in the smaller of the two cottages, a two story structure roomy enough for a family of 4. The design was striking in its charm and privacy, exemplified by the magnificent unobstructed view from the upstairs bedroom. Everything was of high quality, from the bed linens to the coffee machine, and included dish washer and washing machine (so...
