What our customers say

  • "To Andrea and the Release Wanaka team: Thank you so much for your assistance in making our visit to New Zealand a dream come true. The house was beautiful and a perfect retreat for my family of 4. The lake/mountain views were incredible and pristine. Andrea was incredibly response throughout the planning phase, helping to facilitate everything from lift tickets to a surprise selection of craft beers for my husband (in the refrigerator upon our arrival). The Release gift bag was really a special treat. We thoroughly enjoyed the local wine, chocolate, eggs and fresh bread. It was such a special gift and it was obvious that you all take a lot of pride in being a part of the Wanaka community. Your company is truly special. Your unique brand of customer service is unmatched — if only there was a Release in every city in the world! Thanks again for all of your help — we hope to return to Wanaka one day soon! Raven, Ryan, Dylan and Haden Dreibelbis"
