We spent 18 days in NZ on our vacation and this is the best experience in terms of our NZ accommodation. The place is so beautiful and spacious we didn't feel like going anywhere else in Wanaka during our 2 nights stay there. Anne and Steven are fantastic host and you can clearly see that they are genuinely keen to make us feel at "home".

Stayed: November 2013, travelled with family

We booked Wanaka Haven after the recommendation of my son and his new wife... it was good!
WE were looking for a place that is quiet and relaxing.. and this is the place.
It is about 3 minutes easy drive to the lake and town ( you need a car !), your bedrooms and living areas are facing the snow capped mountains ( in winter it must be magical)... we enjoyed the quiet reading in the lounge and in the backyard; with the mountains in front of you. It is quiet and beautiful..you can even hear the humming echo in your ears.
The place is well designed and built, very concise in details and functionality. The hosts are extra friendly , relaxed and nice... even their lovely dogs.
The pictures say it all. Anna-mie and Steve are very interesting people and great to have a conservation with them

How to write this review without being too gushing? Wanaka Haven is the epitome of travel excellence. Anna-Mie and her husband run a luxurious lodge with a warmth and comfort that feels like home... Except with scrumptious breakfast and attentive service!

The location is so stunning, tranquil it's hard to leave. Anna-Mie was generous and attentive during our stay, adding the finishing touches to a special event (our wedding). FYI if you're planning a heli-wedding, Wanaka Haven is one of the few accommodations in Wanaka that are able to have a helicopter land in the grounds to pick you up: awesome.

From the luxurious ensuite room to the fabulous home cooked breakfast, every detail is taken care of by these exceptional hosts. Steve and Anne-mie are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommended. Fantastic scenery right at the front door and lots of great things to do. Spring snow was good and we could hike and ride bikes in good weather.

Luxurious, homely lodge in a private setting. Beautifully appointed rooms with stunning views of the surrounding mountains at sunrise and sunset. The hosts Steven and Anne-Mie couldn't have been more welcoming - from the sumptuous breakfast spreads to the glass of wine in the evening or the many restaurant recommendations. All in all, a wonderful getaway and the perfect base for our week-long ski trip.

Lovely room and house. Great for both short and long-term stays as it's like living at a friend's house or your own home, except you have breakfast served daily and your room made up daily.
The hosts are really friendly and are helpful at recommending what to do and where to eat in Wanaka. It's like having a local show you Wanaka. Really enjoyed our 1 week stay here. Thanks to Anne-Mie and Steven, you two make an awesome team!

Absolutely fantastic! Luxurious, romantic and homely. What more could you ask for after coming off the slopes after a long day. Steven and Anne-Mie are the perfect hosts. They were very inviting, friendly and helpful. They always had delicious baked good set out for us and the breakfast spreads were delicious. They had great recommendations for restaurants and even set plates for us when we decided to get take-away.
Our room was superb. With a perfect bed they provided more then expected from a 5star hotel.
We cant wait to go back!

Room Tip: We chose the largest room for comfort. It was huge with spectacular views.
