We had a delightful stay at Wanaka House. The house and it's facilities are excellent, the Spa wasn't available at the time of our stay which was disappointing, but other than that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. At 2.5km from Lake Wanaka's waterfront (approx.) it's an easy stroll or bike into town, yet far enough out to be peaceful and...

Tidy family friendly cottage. Warm with lovely fire. We enjoyed using the spa. The bikes could do with being serviced. One was missing half a pedal and I don't think they were very safe. The Wifi in the cottage was barely fast enough for browsing and would not be adequate for you needed it for work or study.

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at Wanaka Cottages, staying in the Cottage. Beautiful setting with gardens and lawn that our little one loved. Well designed cottage to maximise views. Fireplace was great. Very well equipped with almost everything you could think of that you might need. Great small kitchen with quality gear (e.g. Scanpan knives and pans). Beautiful bathroom,...

Loved our stay at Wanaka Cottage! The property is well maintained and comfy. It is also located a short drive away from the Lake and Town Center. Highly recommend the cottage for a couple who are visiting Wanaka. Do check out the coffee shop (Florence's) next door for breakfast!

We stayed in the smaller of the two cottages, a two story structure roomy enough for a family of 4. The design was striking in its charm and privacy, exemplified by the magnificent unobstructed view from the upstairs bedroom. Everything was of high quality, from the bed linens to the coffee machine, and included dish washer and washing machine (so...

Our family of 4 adults stayed in the House for 2 nights. Both the yard and house are immaculately maintained and beautifully furnished with lots of thoughtful details, like a shaving mirror in the shower, huge selection of DVDs and a fun media room. I was in charge of cooking and was impressed by the variety and quality of the...

We had the most magical stay at the Wanaka house and cottage in March 2015 and could not have imagined staying anywhere else! We stayed here for 3 nights over our wedding with the bridal party. Bridesmaids and brides got ready on the wedding day in the house- it was so great to open the doors in the dining room/lounge,...

Stayed there with my family - 5 of us, aged between 63-29. Everything you need is there for cooking, including BBQ. The hot tub is also great after a hard day up on the ski fields. We had a fantastic 2 nights there and I will definitely be back on next NZ trip.

A very comfortable warm house to stay in for winter skiing-our 4th year in row and we will be back. A well appointed home that is private with a very pleasant large spa. The owners are very helpful and pleasant to deal with- we highly recommend a stay at Wanaka Cottages
