What our customers say

  • "Wanted to pass along this feedback on the Beacon Point home, our stay in Wanaka, and the service provided by Release Wanaka … all were A+. The Beacon Point home was fully equipped, beautifully maintained, had amazing views, and – as avid tennis players – we loved the tennis court. Wanaka proved to be a great home base for lots of outdoor activities – we were in NZ for 2 weeks, and staying in Wanaka half the time worked out great. Finally, the service provided by you all was excellent – helpful choosing the property (as well as finding a 2nd property for a shorter stay closer to Queenstown), answering questions, scheduling some activities for us… all in all, great stuff. Thank you."
