What our customers say

  • "I can't possibly say enough about the experience and support providing by Release Wanaka, which greatly exceeded our expectations. I spent almost 6 months researching and planning for this trip and without any prior knowledge about New Zealand. Andrea and anyone covering when she wasn't available, made us feel like visiting family, both during my endless emails and phone calls, as well as the arrival and during the visit. I really appreciated Andrea's patience with my endless questions and uncertainty about the activities initially thought to be well outside of our budget. From helping persuade me to convince my parents to enjoy their first helicopter ride, to restaurants recommendations, arrival gifts, home walk through, etc. We really appreciated the awesome celebration of my parent's 50th wedding anniversary After a brief negative experience in Queenstown. Our Wanaka adventures were truly the highlight of our 13 days away. The wine, bread, jam, and chocolates truly enhanced the short time we had to visit Wanaka, to the point my mother made a statement, "I'm ready to sell my car to be able to come back again!" Andrea surprised my parents, during afternoon shopping, while my brother & I were enjoying some Oxbow activities, providing a restaurant recommendation, which was our best dinner in Wanaka. After leaving Wanaka, we spent a night in a nice hotel in Auckland and 4 days in Sydney, at the Four Seasons, and really missed the Wanaka luxury home experience. Anyone asking about our trip will receive the highest recommendation to only talk to Release Wanaka when considering a visit."
