What our customers say

  • Thanks for once again for helping to make my visit to Wanaka a great experience. I have rented beautiful homes from you the past two years and they have been perfect in every way. From your staff meeting me at the property to show me how everything works, to the welcome gift basket with breads and wine, a well stocked kitchen, all the toiletries, bathrobes — I immediately felt comfortable and at home. It's really nice to know that from 8000 miles away I can contact Release Wanaka and you will take care of me and I don’t have to worry about a thing. 5-Stars!! I look forward to doing it again next year. Thanks again. Michael Z
