We stayed in the main house in the master bedroom which was well appointed and very comfortable. The walls were a little thin and we could easily here our neighbours but it wasn't a problem. Breakfast was very good and healthy and our host was really helpful. We particularly enjoyed the lounge area with Tv, music system, library and coffee...

Wanaka Homestead is an Alpine style complex consisting of a main lodge and separate chalets and is about a 15min lakeside walk into the main town. We spent two nights in the Master room of the main lodge and wished we could have stayed longer. Carol was so welcoming, and in spite of us arriving after 9pm she took the...

My partner and I stayed at the Wanaka Homestead Lodge early February for one night and were very pleased with the accommodations. We were greeted with a friendly check-in and shown to our room, which was neat, clean and perfect for what we needed. The room had lots of natural light and ventilation and a comfortable, clean bed. There was...

We only stayed here one night but wish we could have stayed longer. The room had everything we needed and the whole place felt very cosy and friendly. The little touches, like having cookies to help yourself to, were lovely. Ed and Carol couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. The grounds are peaceful and the lake is really close,...

We stayed for 6 nights in the super king room in the lodge and thought it was superb. The no frills room was large and airy as was the bathroom and spotlessly clean. There was lots to eat at breakfast and a 24 hour supply of cookies, tea and coffee. The rooms do not have mini-fridges, but there is a...

This has to be one of the nicest places we've ever stayed, and we've travelled quite a bit. We found the architecture very inviting and homey. Our family of 4 was comfortable in the 2 bedroom/2 bath cottage. The cottage is spacious and the kitchen fully furnished. A free laundry room was steps away and it was good to have...

We stayed in a lodge room on 17 December 2012 during our trip around the South Island. The room was clean, bed comfiy, bathroom very spacious with a double shower, however coffee making facilities were only available downstairs in the common lodge area. As we were travelling by car, we had some 'travelling food' that required refridgeration and a bar...

Thank you for your feedback. Your review states that your accommodation was a bedroom with an ensuite. This is usually the case with most bed and breakfast accommodations in the Otago area. We do have another type of accommodation here at the Homestead - self-contained cottages with full private kitchen facilities and a fridge, perhaps this may have been more...

Stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage for 4 nights over Christmas with my wife and 1yr old and we really enjoyed it. The cottage is very spacious, with extremely comfortable bedrooms and large bath/shower rooms. The sitting area has 2 bigs sofas and is very homely. Some people seem to have taken issue with the lack of lake views and...

We felt so comfortable from the moment we arrived, and once we met Ed and Carol, we felt very welcomed and well-cared for during our time in Wanaka. We could walk to the shops and restaurants along the lakefront, and there were several indoor & outdoor areas perfect for relaxing and breathing in the mountain air. And for anyone on...

Towards the latter part of our 17 day trip in New Zealand that we stayed at this property for 2 nights. We had booked the 2 bedroom cottage. We found the cottage to be very spacious and the free mountain bikes for use was a great attraction for our city bred son who thoroughly enjoyed cycling along the lake shore....
