Arriving at the Homestead, my husband and I exchanged glances: "awesome!" The Homestead is a beautiful home, with welcoming hosts, Carol, Ed and a sweet dog called Douglas. We stayed in a room overlooking the beautiful green lawn, bordered by a weeping willow, and with stairs leading to Station Park, which is another wonderful Wanaka green space bordering the lake. We felt completely spoiled the moment we walked in to the Homestead. We picked up some tea and cookies from the sideboard, and then relaxed by the lawn. Since the Homestead isn't very large, it is easy to find a quiet corner to yourself. Yet everyone we met at the Homestead was extremely friendly, and we enjoyed chatting with other visitors over breakfast (which one morning included delicious rhubarb fresh from the garden). Carol and Ed are extremely friendly and generous hosts, and they went out of their way to make our stay easy and enjoyable, and had excellent suggestions for Wanaka activities. Not only did they suggest hikes in the area, but they went out of their way to make sure that these plans became a reality! The Wanaka area is beautiful, and very peaceful and relaxing. Spending time here was truly a highlight of our trip.
