What our customers say

  • "We were married at the incredible Horseshoe Bend estate on 23rd March 2019. Wow what an incredible venue and the staff at release were fantastic in helping us check in - we loved our gift basket upon arrival not to mention the incredibly detailed tour of the accommodation and facilities. A big shout out to Andrea who took us through each and every detail of the property - she was amazing! Planning a New Zealand wedding from Australia can be difficult but the release team gave me a list of vendors and their communication was impeccable. My husband and I look forward to staying at horseshoe bend again and booking through the team at release wanaka!"
