Beautiful lodgings with a mountain view

Pros: Cosiness, Luxurious feeling and seclusion
Location: Wanaka is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Queenstown. It has that small town feeling and is very laid back. Great for skiiing
Wanaka Haven is well located just outside of Wanaka in a very quiet spot. It has wonderful views of the mountain and is private enough that you think you are at home. The location was great as a base for the nearby skifields of Cardrona. The hosts Steve and Anne-Mie are very welcoming and the lodge itself is well maintained and beautifully decorated. We highly recommend this hotel.

A home away from home with wonderful hosts.

Our stay at Wanaka Haven for 3 nights celebrating our honeymoon was a magical one. We originally just booked two nights but extended our stay because of our wonderful hosts, Stephen and Anne Mie, who felt like old friends you have known forever, and their beautiful home. All the finishes of our room and property were high end and everything felt so clean and fresh. The shared areas were so homely and the complimentary coffee, tea and baked treats was such a lovely touch. Wanaka Haven is a stones throw away from town and well located. We absolutely loved our stay!

Big Sky Wanaka

Pros: Well designed ,great rooms , top quality linens, towels - all add to the experience
Cons: A little picky perhaps - there was 24 hr tea/coffee available in the guest atrium - but a kettle for tea/coffee in the room would be a nice addition
A perfect location - being close to town - yet out in the country ( quiet) - wake up and take in the mountain vistas , great coffee , great hosts - only issue we had was we had to go home ! Our stay was in late winter - in summer the outdoor pool area will add to the ambiance

One of the nicest placest to stay

Pros: Modern, clean and luxurious
Cons: Nothing needs improving
Location: Wanaka is a picturesquespot to visit, we also enjoyed Cromwell and Arrowtown. The district is a photographer's paradise.
Wanaka Haven is a luxurious and peaceful place to stay. The accommodation is beautifully appointed, nothing is overlooked or spared. The hosts are warm and welcoming. The breakfast is second to none. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would encourage anyone considering this option to treat yourself to this experience.
