What a warm welcome.  What a lovely cosy and stylish apartment.  After travelling for more than 8 weeks, we felt immediately at home.  The only sad thing is that we have just 2 days here.  We would love to stay longer and enjoy the comfortable bed, the cosy living room and the beautiful views.  The tasty breakfast on the terrace was nice too.  You fully deserve outsanding reviews.  Take care and enjoy your 50th anniversary of your wedding next year.

What a delightful and relaxing time we have had at Wanaka - a rare treat for us!  We have thoroughly enjoyed our time exploring your little piece of paradise - hiking Mt Iron, biking around the lake and enjoying the delicious breakfasts so thoughtfully prepared for us.  We really appreciate Pieta going out of her way to cater for Deb's GF diet!  Nothing was too difficult.  We love the Apartment, stylish, practical and very much like a second home.  The views of the gardens are just divine.  Wanaka was the little slice of heaven we eeded at the end of our very active holiday.  Thank you for your amazing hospitality.  Until we meet again.

This was a lesson on how to run luxury guest accommodation.  We loved our stay here from the moment we arrived.  Theloft is luxurious, but for us it was the thought that Pieta and Ian have put into it which made difference, and that is where the value lies.  Impeccable Service.

Angelis and Kristina

Elegant, Luxurious and a home away from home.
Last Day - There aren't enough pages in this book to explain how wonderful Pieta and ians Loft is.  From the "welcome home" notes, heated bathroom floors, cloud-soft mattress to Pieta's delicious home-made breakfasts has made our NZ trip amazing.  Sure Lake Wanaka and skiing were incredible but staying @theloft has made this trip truly unforgettable.  We will be staying here whenever we come to NZ!! thank you for your help and hospitality.

Thanks Pieta and Ian for everything.  Theloft is lovely, so warm, so comfy that it just invites people to snuggle in, of course all could not be so without the great attention and care of its hosts, we felt the thoughfulness of Pieta and Ian every step we walk around the rooms.  Its a luxurious experience staying at theloft and truly wish the time could flow slower so we could get to soak in more of the freshness of theloft. We loved it!!

We booked theloft for 3 nights for our wedding in Wanaka and as soon as we stepped foot into this place I was wowed by this little gem.  Pieternella most certainly did everything she could to ensure our stay was a special one - from little notes on the blackboards to homemade cookies and breakfasts.  This place was just more than we could have asked for!  Thank you for the chocolates to celebrate our wedding day.  We will definately be returning to Wanaka one day and would stay again.

Byron and Brigitte

Literally "theloft" is the best B&B we've every stayed!  We have stayed in much bigger, and grander B&B's and Hotel's but nothing comes close to the care, the details and the amount of thoughfulness Pieta has put into "theloft".  Pieta is one of the very few who truly achieved in making guests feel the place is a home away from home.  She did it! We can't wait to tell our friends about this place.

I fell in love with this place when I opened the fridge - although we have travelled around the world, lived in many luxurious Hotels, but this loft is very special.  Everything is well prepared.  Owner couple are very thoughful and sincere.  It's a surprise that each day's breakfast is totally different but delicate.  Pieta is a truly elegant lady paying attention to all details, she even knew where to buy Karen Walker.

Thank you Pieta and Ian for having us stay in your fabulous loft.  We enjoyed every moment, yes, every moment.  Mornings looking out to the mountains, having breakfast or relaxing in the afternoon or lazing on the sofa watching DVDs.  This is truly "home" and you made it happen. :Pieta, I can feel your passion and love of Wanaka, that is the best part of a host. This is the best B&B we have been to in New Zealand.

This is the last of many B&B stays during our holiday in NZ, South Island.  I can state it is by far the best and most luxurious, with amazing attention to detail.  I could stay here forever.  It feels like home the way it is decorated and the quality.  We certainly found a gem in Wanaka  Thanks Pieta for letting us share such a short time in your beautiful loft.

Gordon and Beryl

How lucky were we to find this little gem!  Pieta and Ian, you can be justly proud!  Thank you for your warmth and thoughtfulness in ensuring our stay in your luxury apartment was one to long remember as something quite  unique and special!  Time permitting we will be back, and if "10"  its most definately a "15".

Ariane and Ben

We had the best time in Wanaka thanks to Pieta's good advice.  Theloft is very private but its like living next to the tooth fairy's house, you will get little presents and notes when you don't expect it.  We appreciated every bit of it.  Pieta's muesli is the best, we recommend.
Sept 2015

Daniel and Melissa

Thank you so much for having us, It was really an amazing experience from the hospitality to the beautiful views, we could not have asked for anything more!  Theloft will always hold a special place in our hearts as we got engaged while in Wanaka.  Thank you both again..

Yi and Rommel

Living in theloft is a very different and amazing experience.  This loft is white, clean, beautiful home decoration and full of sunshine.  We really have 14 sleeps in the warm and soft bed with beautiful beddings, and we strongly recommend the various and delicious breakfast.  The loft is the home which you want to come back to when you travel a long way or feel tired.  Thanks Pieta and Ian, thank you very much for your careful and warm hearted care!! - Yi

P.S. Conquering the stomach is the way to conquer a man.  I think it is so lucky for Ian to be conquered by Pieta's wonderful breakfasts and flowers decorating the home.  - Rommel

What a wonderful few days at theloft! The apartment is beautiful - providing all of the comforts of home with the added luxuries of staying in a 5* hotel!  Pieta and Ian are incredibly welcoming hosts, with Pieta never being able to do enough to ensure we"ve enjoyed our stay as well as providing delicious treats:). Thank you so much for everything - we hope to return.

What a fabulous find, from the personalised blackboard notes, to the truly delicious breakfasts. Pieta made us feel truly spoilt.  The bike ride around the lake and rather refreshing dip in the river was a highlight, topped off by a lovely dinner at Bistro Gentil.  Only wish we could have stayed longer!

First and foremost,, thank you Pieta for going out of your way to ensure our 7 month old was comfortable during her first holiday - from "planning"  to  "delivery" during our stay.  We've loved the perfectionist feel to the loft and the furnishing and finishing touches.  Has certainly been a memorable start to our first family holiday! xx
