Nest@Wanaka - Amazing Family Home - Free WiFi

 The Wanaka Nest is a fantastic place to stay in, based in a private community off Cardrona Road, and in park like setting. The house easily accommodated our large group of 9 (6 adults and 3 young children) easily, with plenty of space for the adults and children to hang out. There are lots of toys and activities for the children to keep them busy, such as access to a tennis court, rackets and push scooters. Its 5mins drive to Wanaka centre and a 15-20min walk to the lake front. 


 "Paradise" great little cottage, beautiful gardens in a very private location. Beautifully decorated with great furniture and an amazing bed. So peaceful native birds waking you up in the morning it was just wonderful and brought back child hood memories. I would be back in a heart beat. Thank you so much!!!

Nest@Wanaka - Amazing Family Home - Free WiFi

 This place was fantastic - spacious, fully equipped, and great location. 


 The cottage was private and well-appointed. Bed and bedding very comfortable and a great night's sleep had. Pleasantly surprised by the thoughtful touches of flowers and fruit on arrival. Also impressed by the small luxurious touches such as quality hand wash and personal products. This is a property where the owner obviously takes great pride in going the extra mile to provide guests with a very lovely stay. Only negative is that it's quite a walk into town but it's all even ground.
