We are lucky enough to live in Wanaka where our comfortable homestay set in quiet surroundings has uninterrupted views.
Our best memories from travelling are where we have been welcomed and given insight into the area and the lives of our hosts. We would love to do this for you.
We have 2 spacious double bedrooms available with private bathrooms. The price is per room. We include breakfast ranging from full cooked to continental using fresh ingredients and organic where possible.
Our hens lay fresh eggs daily.
There are superb walks and bike tracks from the front door and in the summer a swim in our solar heated lap pool is a good way to start the day.
Wanaka has a variety of restaurants and cafes to suit all tastes. There are many local attractions from Sky Diving for the adventurous to NZ's largest Toy Museum for a slice of history.
There are three major ski fields in under an hour's drive which cater for all levels.
Our large house and garden captures a rural atmosphere in an urban setting and Dougal our soft natured dog will make you feel at home too.
Arrival after 3pm please and vacate by 11am on day of departure.
We had a great experience at Lyn's place! It was one of the most beautiful houses we had ever seen, the house had a million dollar view, the bed was excellent, the breakfasts were just delicious, the coffee was the best I had in New Zealand, the dog was adorable, but most important of all, Lyn is the best, she made us feel like home instantely (well, I wish I had a home like that!); if you have the chance, book this place! You won't regret it!!!!!!
we were made welcome the moment we entered the home, Lyn showed us where everything was, the house location is magnificent the pictures on Airbnb site don't do it justice.
we took Lyn's advice and did some walks around Wanaka , breakfast was excellent each day and I would have no hesitation in staying there again, or recommend to friends who are travelling in New Zealand
thank you Lyn and Stew

The highlight of our time in NZ. Beautiful accommodation and breakfast. The scenery was magnificent so good made you just want to sit and enjoy all day. Loved the homeliness of this property from the chooks and veggie garden and certainly not forgetting Dougal. Loved the lakeside walk near the bnb. Altogether made it a destination to remember. Thanks Lyn and Stu
Lyn and Stew are superb hosts. Their house is spacious and beautiful, with exquisite views of the lake and mountains. Our bedrooms and bath were clean and nicely appointed with all the amenities. Stew prepared an excellent breakfast with mostly organic ingredients, including eggs from his chicken coop. Also: cappuccino from a pro model machine! I can't leave out their Kiwi hospitality, which went well beyond the call of duty. After our rental car suffered a bad tire blowout on a Sunday and no quick fixes in sight, Stew offered to "sort things out" for us, which turned out to be the understatement of the year. I won't go into the details, but he kept our trip going and solved our car problem with a generosity that would have shamed the Good Samaritan. Bravo, Lyn and Stew!
Our stay with Lyn was by far the most relaxing point of our two week trek through New Zealand. Aside from the stunningly gorgeous home, the highlight of the stay was Lyn's hospitality. From the fresh-cut flowers to the home-cooked breakfast to the spot-on recommendations to the warm conversation, these details really set Lyn apart from any other place. Highly, highly recommend.
Our stay in Wanaka could not have been more ideal! Lyn (and her beautiful dog whom I was tempted to smuggle home in my luggage) were the perfect hosts. From cooking us a huge breakfast to sharing all her local knowledge of Wanaka, we really couldn't have asked for more.
Wanaka has so many opportunities for us to enjoy. We bike and walk on the many tracks we have in the area. Golf is high on the list for Stew and I am a keen skier in the winter.
Our garden keeps us busy both for pleasure and for the delicious organic veges we grow. I love to cook and Stew makes very good coffee.
We like our guests to feel at home and are happy to give suggestions of things to see and do in the area and to provide some insight in to life here in Wanaka.
