This is a quiet location just outside Wanaka, with very comfortable rooms plus a lovely sitting room and dining room to relax in. The hosts, Annlie and Steve, are so helpful and serve wonderful breakfasts. We would return anytime we could.

We were delighted with this property and its proprietors! It is about 10 minutes from the heart of Wanaka -- setting in a quiet pastoral setting away from the crowds. I would call it a perfect launching point for any adventure in the area. Our hosts were very helpful in arranging our dinners and activities, as well as fixing fabulous...

It is impossible to fault Wanaka Haven. The property is beautifully furnished, as was our bedroom; breakfast was delicious and our hosts were amazingly helpful. We would design our whole trip around ensuring we could enjoy a good long stay here on another trip. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Absolutely loved Wanaka Haven. We are kiwis but I had never been to Wanaka before and usually don't rate NZ accommodation that highly in comparison to other places I've been in the world. But this place was really lovely, so relaxing, the owners are SO friendly and welcoming and amazingly accommodating. Would absolutely recommend this place to stay for anyone...

Take a large paddock, find a good architect, have a vision of a modern home with superb fittings and traditional furniture, add a pool, large patio with fireplace and landscaped garden and you might just come up with the fantastic place that Steven and Anne-Mie have created. They are superb hosts and have provided a very large guest sitting room...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. We had a difficult time finding the place on our GPS. Make sure you search by Keyword "Wanaka Haven" and not type in the address. It took us to a horrible looking old house at a wrong location. After about half an hour or so, we tried and searched under Wanaka...

Wanaka Haven has it all: spectacular setting and views, gracious, accomodating and knowledgeable hosts, close enough to Wanaka town but supremely quiet and relaxing, and definitely not least the incredibly good breakfast. There is little to add to the many glowing reviews of Wanaka Haven already on tripadvisor, just to concur that this is an unusually good B&B experience in...

From my first interaction with Anne- Mie and Steven I knew we were going to enjoy our time staying with them at Wanaka Haven. The multiple questions i bombarded them with before didn't phase them and we were still welcomed into their beautiful Lodge. The Lodge itself is stylish and warm with fantastic views over the Southern Alps in the...

My wife and I stayed at the Wanaka Haven for three days in November, and wishes we could have stayed longer. The Haven is a wonderful, small property -- no noice, no traffic, and no disturbances. Breakfasts were fantastic. We'll definitely stay here again the next time we come to Wanaka. Highly recommended.
