Avalanche Studio was perfect for our family of four - the garden and view was amazing, the accomodation was lovely and comfortable and Trish and Davy were very friendly and knowledgeable hosts. The breakfast provisions were delicious and very generous. The location was perfect for enjoying Wanaka and surrounds while avoiding the hustle and bustle of the peak holiday season. Would highly recommend a stay here!

Trish has a beautiful house and super nice garden. We enjoyed the staying at her home and love there very much. Trish provided us delicious cookie, muffin and fruit salad. And her dog Poppy was so cute and lovely. We cooked dinner with BBQ oven on the pantry which was supper great. This is the best B&B we have ever lived in.

Trish and Davy's place is a great stay at Wanaka. Trish makes really good muffins and cookies, and she is very hospitable (while not intruding in our privacy). The place is very close to town and has a very nice yard. You can see a lot of stars on good clear nights from the yard. Poppy (the dog) is very friendly and love strangers. Do go out fishing with Davy if you go to Wanaka too! We caught fishes though it was our first time! :) We will come back here on our next trip to Wanaka!
