We had a great stay at our Release house in Wanaka. A modern place, a few minutes drive to Wanaka township. We were there over New Years, and Wanaka gets pretty busy for a week or two, but it was far enough away to escape traffic etc. The ‘Monkey Farm’ cafe/bar is a short walk, so I’d start my day over a coffee and chat to friendly locals. Great beds, great bathrooms, big modern kitchen, fireplace etc. Brilliant. Thanks to the Release team for great service, warm welcome and an easy check in.
