  • A very well designed and constructed loft with very thoughtful touches that will offer guests maximum comfort in their night of stay. This was one of the best AirBnB stays I've ever had and would highly recommend to anyone stopping by Wanaka. Zoe and Matt were very responsive, and were very accommodating even though my gf and I arrived late on the day of booking. Thank you again for a great night of stay!

    Bon2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • This loft blew us away. So beautifully laid out and designed plus everything you could need. Lovely to stand outside at night, look at the stars and enjoy the tranquility! Can't recommend highly enough. Check in was easy, Zoe was very friendly and the dog, Chappy, was gorgeous!

    Fi2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • The loft offers great quality and also spacious accommodation in the popular town of Wanaka. All possible facilities are on hand which makes for a great place to relax when enjoying the great NZ experience.

    Peter2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Staying in a loft might sound questionable but the Wanaka loft was a revelation. The design was really well thought out, and the space was really comfortable. Communication with Zoe and Matt was easy, and Zoe met us as we arrived. The loft was within easy walking distance of Wanaka.

    Anthony2020-03-05T00:00:00Z

    Rosemary2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • The photos of this airbnb made me think it would be smaller than it was. Lots of room, comfortable bed, luxurious towels and bath products. A well equipped kitchen made it easy to cook a meal there. Great location for a stay in Wanaka as it is a bit out of town and so more quiet. I would recommend booking a stay here if you are in the area.

    Scott & Chris2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Would highly recommend

    Hazel2020-03-04T00:00:00Z

Self contained with a well equipped kitchenette, a microwave, toaster and electric kettle, small fridge and Nespresso machine. Please note there are no cooking facilities apart from the microwave, toaster and kettle. No cooking is to be done other than with these items provided.

  • Great place - booked last minute. The host, Vicki, was incredibly quick and prompt with recommendations, check -in instructions, etc. Highly recommend and just what we were looking for during our 1 night stay in Wanaka!

    Sophie2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed here for 4 nights while in Wanaka. Awesome location right near town, easy to get too. Very cozy and clean, would be happy to stay here next time! Vicki and her husband were very kind and helpful. Thanks for having us!

    Philip2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • A cute space minutes from the city center and Roys Peak. Would 100% recommend.

    Annmarie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay!

    Kayla2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible loft. Space appeared very small at first glance. However, Vicki has thoughtfully placed a minimal amount of furniture/art in the loft to maximise comfort and have it still feel personal and homey. Oh and the aircon/heater is incredibly efficient. Or you could just opt for the lofts windows on the roof to let in the fresh air A solo trip and quick stay but will be back again one day for my next stay in Wanaka.

    Michael2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Positives: the loft is private with a separate entrance. It’s a stylish and modern space, with an incredibly comfortable bed. Vicki was very quick to communicate, especially as were checking in on the same day we booked. A much better alternative to some of the overpriced motels in the area! Negatives: small point is that there are no blinds on the sky light so a sensitive sleeper may struggle in the morning. But not a deal breaker at all.

    Alim2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely, comfortable place to stay in a great area. Loads to do, helped by some great local tips in the welcoming pack. Easy check in, would definitely recommend!

    Deans Bank Views Loft is so named due to the mountain views in all directions, and specifically views of the Deans Bank on the Clutha River. It is an ideal location to access the outdoors or tuck away for a quiet, relaxing getaway.
    The Loft is cosy, warmed by all-day sun and has an efficient log burner for the cooler nights. It has a private deck space to enjoy in summer. The architecturally designed space is intimate, tucked under striking ceiling lines, yet filled with lots of natural light. It is quiet and private.
    The Loft is in Albert Town, just 11 minutes drive to Wanaka township (6km). It is close to Lakes Wanaka & Hawea and several ski resorts (30km to Treble Cone, 40km Cardrona Alpine Resort and Snow Farm NZ). It sits in a quiet cul de sac flanked by the Hikuwai Conservation reserve with a network of mountain bike and walking trails 100 metres away. The mighty Clutha River is 3 minutes stroll from the door which has some of the best trout fishing on offer in the area!

Yohann was a fantastic host who spent the time to provide recommendations for us on both Wanaka and the South Island generally. The apartment is beautiful and tastefully decorated. Could not fault it. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

  • A magical spot, perfect for small families. We had a great one night stay and enjoyed the nice outdoor space and the kids loved running around the garden, feeding the chooks and playing on the playground. The hosts are very friendly and provide great information before the stay and dropped by to say hi and share information about the area soon after we arrived. We were grateful for the recommendations of an ice cream at Lake Hawea, the dinosaur park at Wanaka and Salmon feeding in Twizel, all of which we have enjoyed since leaving The Loft.

    Alison2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • The loft was an amazing place to stay. Renee and Gareth are so welcoming and accommodating. They even have us some vegetables from their garden to cook with! The space is great and has all the amenities. Would highly recommend!

    Kirstie2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. We stayed with our two year old and the place was very well equipped to entertain him and all of the thoughtful touches like toys and safety gates made it easier for us to enjoy also. Sparkling clean and very friendly hosts. We would stay again next time we visit the region.

    Simon2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • A two-story loft in a quiet, large yard. The yard is a typical farm style, with a variety of vegetables, and the hare can be seen running in and out of the lawn. The room is clean and hygienic. The kitchen equipment and toiletries are complete. The hostess is attentive and helpful to help you. Bright moonlight and brilliant stars are visible at night.

    西安2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Superbe location, lots of space in the flat and outside. Our daughter was able to play with all the toys and feed the chickens in the morning. Gareth was a amazing host, very welcoming.

    Karen2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed staying at The Loft. Very nice hosts, spotlessly clean, cosy, a lovely garden for our son to play in, quiet and relaxed but still close enough to Wanaka and to some nice trails (given that you have a car) - couldn't have wished for anything more. Definitely recommended, thanks for having us.

    Elisabeth2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic space, such a cute little apartment. Perfect for us and our two kids, they loved feeding the chooks, and playing in the beautiful yard. I wish we could have stayed longer. Just a quick drive into Wanaka for all the amenities you could ask for, and so peaceful being out in the country. The hosts are amazing, friendly and helpful. We have this on the top of our list when we make it back down to Otago again.

    Olaf & Arya2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing! Spotlessly clean, well equipped, extremely hospitable hosts - we could use the washing machine, the dryer, the great BBQ - and a lovely, calm area. Wanaka is close by and everything you need is within easy reach by car. Renee was very responsive and helped us with everything we needed immediately. Thanks again for the amazing, relaxing time! We felt like home :)

    Bilal2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Mitchella Farm was perfection. Liz and Steve have built a cozy home away from home that was restorative. Our very comfy bed overlooked the mountains and valleys of Wanaka. Liz stocked the kitchen with everything we needed for breakfast and also brought us some fresh veggies and fruit from her garden. Take some time and explore the property, which is filled with fruit trees, flowers, pastures and even some resident sheep and a goat. One of the top five places we stayed during our three weeks in New Zealand. Highly recommended — next time we will book a longer visit!!

    Dawn2019-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful location! Love the sustainable approach too...

    Ian2018-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Liz's place was one of our absolute favorite AirBNBs in New Zealand. It's perfectly situated on some beautiful farmland that Liz and her husband have worked long and hard to make natural-feeling, pleasant, and very green (in many ways). The guest rooms are clean and spacious, and the view of the mountains is incredible, especially in the morning or evening. It's a bit of a drive outside of town, but it's not bad at all, and totally worth it. Everything was just perfect, and Liz was a wonderful host. We would not hesitate to stay at her place again.

    Daniel2018-03-15T00:00:00Z

Originally built as a holiday home by Annabel's grandparents Buster and Marsie Wilson, The Stone Cottage has always been a much-loved destination for her family. The 1970s Cottage now houses a loft apartment and a small studio apartment upstairs where guests stay. You are fully self-contained up there with in a bach studio style set up with a very basic kitchenette, books and magazines. The apartment has a small wooden balcony and chairs and you can see the lake from the comfort of your queen size bed. The house itself is secluded and surrounded by a wild rambling garden. A four-minute stroll will take you down to Lake Wanaka, ideal for swimming with its sandy beach and framed, as always in New Zealand, by a background of mountains. When not chilling out in the garden or fishing on the lake, many of Annabel’s guests enjoy the outdoor pursuits for which Wanaka is increasingly famed: skiing, snowboarding, paddleboarding, rockclimbing, mountain biking. A family of four lives downstairs - you'll probably meet them in the garden. A permanent tenant also lives in the apartment adjacent to yours. Access is via the wooden stairs at the far side of the house - just walk along the gravel towards the boundary fence once you have parked your car. Barbeque, small deck and chairs, board games, cards. Annabel may be available to give you some local insights into the Central Otago district and can offer a tour of the local mountains in winter - just ask! Here at The Loft @The Stone Cottage, you're just four minute's walk through the garden and native manuka to the lakeshore. Dublin Bay is a great place to get away any time of year. It's family friendly; a gorgeous spot for boating, swimming, mountain biking or wandering beside the lake through native manuka forest towards the Clutha river outlet. Overlooking Treble Cone and Black Peak, you'll be first to know when there's a fresh snowfall in winter as Wanaka's local ski and snowboarding mountains Treble Cone and Cardrona are only a 45 minute drive away. You'll need a car because the home is 10 minutes' drive from Wanaka township, tucked away beneath tall pine trees down the end of a gravel road.
    Here at The Studio @The Stone Cottage, you're just four minute's walk through your own private garden to the lakeshore. Dublin Bay is a great place to get away any time of year. It's family friendly; a gorgeous spot for boating, swimming, paddleboarding, kitesurfing mountain biking or wandering beside the lake through native manuka forest towards the Clutha river outlet. Overlooking Treble Cone and Black Peak, you'll be first to know when there's a fresh snowfall in winter as Wanaka's local ski and snowboarding mountains Treble Cone and Cardrona are only a 45 minute drive away. Just three minutes back up the road is Joy's Pottery Barn.
  • I thoroughly recommend staying at Lakeside Loft studio. Very clean, very comfortable and 2 mins from the lake with a path good for walking / running and the lake makes for a refreshing swim. You do need a car as 10 mins drive out of Wanaka but I liked being a little out of the hustle and bustle of the town.

  • Rental conforms to the description made, small but nothing is missing and if you need something, no problem, you can ask. I have experienced it. Martine & Michel Swiss February 2020

  • If you are looking for a place that is far from the ''maddening crowd'' that affords tranquility, peacefulness and nature, with a great view and access to Lake Wanaka, then this is where you need to be!

  • This cute cottage is amazing and a fun spot to stay! The view is beautiful and I liked how it was outside of the town. Very calm and quiet with easy access to the lake!

  • Small, simply furnished accommodation in a great location. Great view. Wanaka and the surrounding area definitely has more charm than Christchurch. A bit expensive for what you get, but that applies to the whole region.
