Reviewed 15 March 2009

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights on the 24th and 25th of February. The studios are situated on a slight hill just off the main drag but are in very easy walking distance of the township. The studio we had was very spacious, with a nice big bathroom and separate toilet. The view from the front door was spectacular - given the studios' [there are 6 of them from memory] elevated position - overlooking the lakefront and surrounding hills. It was very quiet, even though it's on a residential street. [All good Kiwis are in bed by 9pm]. Pleasant owner.

Four of us spent over two weeks touring around the South Island and this was the best place we stayed at. The studios are quite spacious, they're elevated and they look out over Lake Wanaka. The front of the units are the opposite side to the street so it's quite private. Close enough to the township to walk there but far enough away so that it's very quiet. A great place to come back to at the end of the day. Very nice staff/management and reasonably priced.

I stay in Wanaka one night (I was heading to Milford Sound from Christchurch). A bit tricky to find but the room was nice. Had what I needed (namely cable TV, microwave and a frig) and the bed was comfortable. You have a beautiful view of Lake Wanaka and the city itself and it was a nice starry night so I could finally see the Southern Cross (as well as Orion which was 'upside down' to this American tourist (lol). The owners were nice and tried to find an adapter for me (did not have one but directed to a local store where I got one).

I also went to the local movie theatre, Cinema Paradiso, which is must for any movie geeks like me.

This was a lovely spot for a few days. Friendly managers, extra & comfy beds, restful decor & good heating. We added a last minute extra night here & it was no problem. We would stay here again & recommend it to others.
