Bach or holiday home, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 10)
We are a family with four children who live on a farm close to Wanaka. Wanaka was always a holiday destination for both myself and my husband when we were children and we wanted our own children to experience the magical space of Wanaka. Wanaka is our hide away from the real world and somewhere where we can enjoy the lakes and mountains at any time of the year. Most noticeably Wanaka has changed immensley in the last 20 years, we find this an exciting and thrilling wee town that will always hold a special place for us.

What makes this House unique
We loved this house as soon as we saw it advertised. To us it depicts the true history of Wanaka with the fabulous Wanaka stone on the lower floor of the property. It isn't a new house, although we have tried to incorporate the furniture theme into something of a modern style For us, this house is about being comfortable and making this your home away from home.

Great location and value for money
We stayed as 2 families of five. Lots of space for everyone. Good value. Well equipped kitchen. Suzie, the host, was very friendly and helpful and responded really quickly to all requests. Slight road noise, as overlooks a main road, but more than compensated by beautiful views of mountains and convenience of short walk to centre of Wanaka along a safe footpath.
Nice house. Good host
House had everything we needed. The host had great communication with me prior to the stay. Short walk to town.
Excellent location, plenty of space and everything we needed for a group of weary travellers.
For the 6 of us, all singles, this was a great house to accommodate us all. With 2 bathrooms and a great laundry to catch up on washing, as we were on a bike ride through parts of NZ.
Great stay at Alpine house
Suzie is very responsive to queries.
Her place is neat and clean.
Our families enjoyed the one night stay there.
Very nice stay!
The Alpine Family Holiday House is a perfect house for a big family or group. The house is big, has a lot of space around for the kids to run, games, books, etc. We fell right away at home.
It's ideally located, a short 15min walk from town, and 3min from a nice bakery and butcher.
However, we were a family of 9 who love to cook, and we found that the kitchen was not stocked enough. There is everything you need regarding plates, cups, etc... but there is only 1 pan and 3 small to medium size pots. More pans and pots would definitely be useful, but if you don't cook so much, it won't be a problem.
Otherwise, be aware that the stairs don't have guardrail for babies.
All in all, we had a very nice stay and would definitely recommend this house!
