What our customers say

  • This was the holiday of a lifetime. Our family group of 10 adults and 6 grandchildren spent a wonderful week in these magical surroundings while we holidayed, relaxed and celebrated a wonderful family event over the New Year period. The estate is huge, superbly maintained and has a wide range of sporting and entertaining areas. The accommodation is excellent, incorporating architecturally designed villas, state of the art equipment, thoughtful design and luxury finishes. All of these features plus the natural setting come together to provide the ultimate luxury holiday, with privacy, relaxation and sporting facilities. Thank you for sharing this magnificent property with us and for your wonderful hospitality. It was a magical experience, which we will always remember. Wanaka is a remarkable place. If it is not on your bucket list, then put it on the list……..and also add Horseshoe Bend Estate!
