Stayed here for xmas with family, had 2 rooms with adjoining door, was well equipped, comfortable, clean, strong hot shower, kitchen pretty well equipped (and we were able to borrow one or 2 things when cooking) tho a proper stove is always more handy than just hotplates and microwave, but we adapted ok (and were aware of the kitchen facilities when booking). A table and chairs would have been good as well.
Very friendly and helpful owners (loved the scenic flight we did over Mt Aspiring which they helped organise for my Dad and I, this was a highlight of our stay in Wanaka.
Great to be next door to the supermarket, across the road from other shops and a block from the waterfront.
One problem with a wooden structure, it creaks quite a lot (and quite loudly sometimes), especially with the change in temperatures at beginning and end of day...also noticed how much the place seemed to shake when someone slammed the door and can can hear other guests a bit too easily at times (an early morning 'loud discussion' by one lot of guests proved this point)...but this is not really a fault of the accommodation.
A few more TV channels would be good as well...
