We thought Wanaka was beautiful, cute town and enjoyed our stay at the Homestead. There is a nice walk from the Lodge into town which we enjoyed (a bit longer than 15 minutes). We had the barn, which easily fit the 4 of us in 3 bedrooms. The beds were very comfortable, the entire place was very clean. Free use...

Dear Kelsey1976 Thank you for your kind comments. We enjoyed meeting your family and having you stay with us as well. Just to clarify the situation regarding the books for anyone else reading the review: We are more than happy for guests to take a book and leave a book in its place.

When you arrive, it's easy to see why Wanaka Homestead scores so highly with travelers. Carol Ed and Douglas are very friendly and knowledgeable and make you feel very welcome in their home.

If you want to take advantage of the laid back nature of Wanaka, this is the place to do it. Superbly comfortable rooms in a gorgeous timber building. Ed, Carol and Andrew provide a slightly quirky but very enjoyable establishment to unwind and relax. Lovely location a short walk (or ride on the providing bikes) from town and a lovely...

Our group of 7 booked four of these lovely rooms. This B & B is beautiful, and was built with an eye for detail and quality. Ed and Carol made us comfortable in our spacious, clean, rooms.

This is simply a lovely lodge, with comfortable rooms, an excellent breakfast and comfortable amenities (hot tub, tea & cookies, use of laundry facilities, etc.). It would likely take 10 minutes to walk into town, but there is a nice footpath by the lake, or you can use one of the lodge's bicycles. To top it off, you are rewarded...

I only wish we had longer to stay. It was a great room, with a fabulous shower! We also had a lot of privacy even though we were staying in the main house. The continental breakfast was very nice, but some might consider the price a little high for the cold breakfast.

Spending 2 nights at Wanaka Homestead was a pure delight. The property is beautiful and comfortable and we felt at home immediately. Ed and Carol were great hosts. Ed loaned us free bikes so we could cycle around the lake and they both helped us extensively with our travel plans. Facilities were great including a very comfortable lounge, free wifi,...

The hosts were very nice, the continental breakfast very good, the lodge room spotlessly clean and nicely decorated however, after staying in a variety of other accommodations across South Island for the preceding 2 weeks we felt that this accommodation was way over-priced. The rooms and cottages are situated to form a "u" shape and face inwards to an inner...
