Fabulous place for gathering of friends. Sadly upkeep not great/ broken towel rail/upstairs bathroom fan melted/downstairs one scarily noisy/Electric blanket left on high/ BBQ dubious - to name a few things.We did love it but it is tired.

A lovely week with our son and daughter and their families so 6 adults and 5 grandchildren from 6 to 12. We loved the central location, school playing fields right there, warm and cosy with log fires, plenty of hot water . The various spaces meant that there was room for everyone to spread out and not annoy each other.

We were three families staying together. This house was perfect to accomodate the 12 of us. The children loved being able to play on the school field and playground, so much space for them to run around. The house has plenty of space and bathrooms, we didn’t feel on top of each other. The house has everything you could possibly need, very well equipped.

We did not get to enjoy this spacious house much as we only spent the nights here. It is a very nice and massive house and we all had our own space. Kids loved it. We just hope we had more time here to actually enjoy the house. The only problem was it was too hot and when we opened the windows and doors, bugs came in, so maybe screening windows and doors would help.

Great house for our family to stay in for a week. Truly a home away from home for us. Loved the (what we think was) new carpet(!), the variety of spaces catering for our 3 generations, plus access to the college field for playing. Thanks for the BBQ which we enjoyed using, the books and gamues for the children, and fan for cooling ourselves during superb hot Wanaka weather! Sadly we couldn't locate the recycling bins - hopefully someone can sort this for future renters going forward. What would make this wonderful family-focused property even more fab would be a few more outdoor chairs on the deck

This was the perfect house for a large family with plenty of space and good sized rooms that we didn't feel like we were living on top of on another for a week. Plenty of plates and bowls etc to accommodate all the people.

This is a comfortable house that has space for everyone. Two roaring fires and heaters in all of the bedrooms. Kitchen was well equipped and beds were comfortable. Not modern, but clean and in good working order. Good stays were fantastic to deal with and attended to anything we needed straight away. Its a 10 min walk downhill to town through a forest. We had a lovely time.

A large house with warm living areas which suits a large family or group. Had everything we needed and plenty of wood for the fires. Spacious kitchen and living areas, 3bathrooms, storage for our skis and bikes in the garage. All bedrooms are spacious also. Lovely mountain views and an outlook over Mount Aspiring College grounds. Town was an easy 10 minute walk away through a park or an easy bike ride and walks, bike rides around the lake also very accessible. A good place for young children too.

an older house now showing signs of wear but clean and tidy well suited for a large group as bedrooms well spaced and enough room to move NOT cramped

The house was great for my group of teenagers that were in Wanaka for a snowboarding camp at Cardrona. The Big living room, deck, kitchen and ball field out the back gate were all amazing for us. comfortable for a group of 8 and we had a great time.

Thank You
