About Venetia Ellis
Originally from Buckinghamshire in England, I immigrated to NZ having met my husband whilst working as a chalet girl in France! my husband had holidayed in Wanaka since the 60's, and we've longed to move to Wanaka for many years. Finally we made the leap in December, moving down from the North Island. Mother of 3 older aged children , there's time now to follow our dream of hosting guest accommodation in an extremely special part of the world.
Venetia Ellis purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Venetia Ellis chose Albert Town
Albert Town holds a special place in our hearts. It's close enough to Wanaka so you can access all the facilities, but far enough away to escape the hustle and bustle when needed. Settled back in the 1850's, the little pockets of history add to its charm. The close proximity to the river and walking tracks were a huge appeal when considering buying in the area. Once we viewed 25 Gunn Road we were sold!
What makes this Cottage unique
This property has a beautiful feel as well as being situated close to the Clutha River. Built to look reminiscent of a chalet in the Alps, we instantly fell in love with the house. Combined with the separate private cottages, the house offers something unique and very special. Perfect for a romantic break away alone, or with friends and family.

One of the highlights of our stay!!
Amazing property with wonderful amenities. The spa and the fire pit were also great additions. We rode the bikes a short way to the river and had a lovely picnic. The breakfast was also appreciated. Just a shirt drive to Wanaka or nearby areas. We really enjoyed our stay here!!
Thank you for the lovely review! it was a pleasure having you to stay and so glad you enjoyed your time exploring the area. Thank you also for leaving the Bunk House so tidy and clean! very much appreciated, safe travels.
Amazing space, amazing hosts
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bunk House. Everything we needed was there on arrival and our great hosts were kind enough to get the heating up and running before our arrival. Albertown provided great cafe's, good food, pleasant walks to the river as well as 'Hook' a great little fishing spot nearb. If you've ever pondered staying in Ablertwon, don't! Stay here at the Bunk House. You'll love it.
Thank you for your lovely feedback! Likewise please do come back if you need a Wanaka base again :)

No problem at all! And very pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for leaving the Bunk House so clean and tidy. Hope to see you again another time.
Warm and cosy!
Loved everything about our stay here. Arrived to find the heater on, and the fire ready to light. The fridge and cupboards stocked with our breakfast needs. Comfy couches and beds, large selection of DVDs and some Wii games to play. This was one very well thought out bunkhouse. Only a 2 min drive to the local shops, where we enjoyed a meal in the nice local pub, and also in the Fish restaurant. Only a 7 min drive to Wanaka, and 40 min to Cardrona. Perfect for our mini break. Would def stay again.
Stylish, comfy, luxurious stay.
What a beautiful, well set up accommodation. So stylish, yet comfortable and homely. Thoughtful touches with lovely breakfast supplies and toiletries. We didn't take advantage of the bikes but would if we stayed longer. The hot tub was lovely and appreciated after a day on the slopes which are within a 35 min drive. This is a great base for a family holiday sightseeing or skiing Cardrona. We will be back if we're down this way again and will bring friends to stay in the other smaller accommodation.
Claimed to be one of the most beautiful parts of New Zealand we feel so fortunate to be able to offer our guests a unique holiday. What ever your passion, there's something for everyone. Action packed adventure, to beautiful scenic walks or enjoying the taste and flavours of our local wineries. Wanaka won't disappoint!
