We were fortunate enough to have the place largely to ourselves since we were the only people to have booked at the time. The lakehouse features some of the nicest luxuries you could ask for - inbuilt swimming pool, jacuzzi, pizza oven, fireplace, games room,...

Absolutely lovely house. Fantastic place to have a wedding venue. We had 42 guests in our wedding and that was just perfect size. All the guests just loved the house and views. Beautiful outdoor area around the house. Detailing all around the house is so fine. There was plenty of space in the living room for the band and dance....

We had a nice visit in Wanaka. House is gorgeous. This would be a great place for a family, especially with children. We cooked steaks on the deck and enjoyed the beautiful views. Breakfast provisions are left in the refrigerator so you have complete privacy. It was a little warm and we bought a fan.

We stayed here when we got engaged. It was amazing, we had a quick tour of the house and then had the option to choose 1 of the 2 bedrooms downstairs which was hard because they were both amazing, there were others staying here upstairs but did not see them at all, it felt like we had the whole house...
