“Wonderful Wanaka”
Reviewed 25 August 2008

We stayed 3 nights in the barn at Wanaka Homestead in June. Ed and Carol were just wonderful hosts, nothing too much trouble. Barn was very authentic, loved the way the kids slept upstairs away from us! DVD's free to watch, bikes to use just loved it. Wanaka Homestead created wonderful memories of New Zealand and Wanaka but most of all, the friendly New Zealand people.

Our visit to Wanaka was mainly for a 1-night stopover. Found the place to be very homely and the hosts to be very friendly and accomodating. It was located in a residential area on a road leading to the National Park. Our room was comfortable though we found the heating a little too high for our liking (the level apparently is controlled within the main house). Overall, a nice experience.

We only booked 1 night at the Wanaka Homestead, but wished we'd stayed longer. Beautiful, homey, inn with all the amenities we could want. Lovely setting close to the Lake and we enjoyed using their mountain bikes. Especially enjoyed their dog, Douglas, who was an sweet little guy, without being an annoyance. We'll definitely return to the Wanaka Homestead.

We loved this place so much we stayed an extra night and lost our deposit at another hotel. The hosts were extremely knowledgeable about the area and gracious. The rooms were lovely, the grounds are lovely. The hot tub was great, having access to free laundry was great, etc. Also, the building is a "green" design which was interesting and comfortable. Big comfy beds, skylights in some rooms. Fantastic location - beautiful walk along the lake to town.

I have stayed here twice and will stay here again next year. The new hosts have continued to run the lodge in the same style as the previous hosts, which is great. Service is very friendly and helpful and rooms are very nice. There is plenty of parking; the laundry is always clean and breakfasts are lovely. Location is fantastic, especially if you like going for walks. It only takes about 7-8 minutes to walk to town. I am VERY fussy and can't find anything to critisize about Wanaka Homestead.

Wanaka was definitely a highlight of our trip and the homestead was the best place we stayed in the South Island. Owners were lovely - Roger even gave us a lift to catch the bus the following day which was so nice of him. They also have mountain bikes for your use which is great as you can cycle into town along the lovely lake. Would definitely recommend this B&B.
