By far the most iconic hospitality experience in our 2.5 week tour of the South Island. Located 5-10 mins drive outside Wanaka, the Lodge is situated on a beautiful plot of land with great views of the surrounding mountains. It's a new property so everything is shiny new (opened in 2014 I think). But the reception by the owners- Pauline...

If you want to go to a beautiful place and feel totally at home and pampered you must stay here. They even offered a r/t ride to town (close by) so we could "enjoy" our evening to the fullest. Pauline and John are the ultimate hosts and the accommodations were super clean and comfy. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

The room, the cleanliness, the facilities, the bed, the staff, the breakfast, the extras, it was all excellent. How do you improve on excellent? You feel like you are at home and your hosts (almost) instantly become your friends. You feel like a part of their extended family.

Let me tell you, Pauline and John are one of the kindest people I met in all my life of travels. Pauline is one hell of a character with devilishly delicious sense of humor.

We received a warm welcome from Pauline and John and it felt like we were visiting relatives in the country. Our room was well appointed and comfortable and looked out on pleasant gardens. Each evening we were served canopes and drinks in the lounge while the talented Elise cooked tasty and extravagant meals. The lodge is in a quiet and...

We spent four nights at Lime Tree Lodge in early January. It was a superb visit, very relaxing and with everything possible catered for. The lodge is about five minutes drive out of Wanaka, on lovely grounds. Each of the rooms has access straight to the gardens and the private pool area. Internally, there is a cosy lounge and dining...

Hi! thank you for your nice review. Your daughter was so cute and Black Peak suite is perfect for people such as yourselves travelling with a young daughter as it is a very private apartment in our lodge with separate accommodation. Enjoy your New Year. Best wishes, Pauline

Had a fantastic 4 night stay at Lime Tree Lodge. John & Pauline ensure that you are as comfortable as can be - nothing is too much trouble. Food is yummy and rooms very comfortable. Topped it off with an amazing helicopter ride around Mount Aspiring. You get so spoilt here that your other accommodation pales in comparison!!
