Forget about everything else, if you are looking for an amazing panoramic view of Lake Wakatipu, then you won't do better than the Villa Del Lago. This is not one of those places with an "ocean view" where you can only see the water if you twisted your body over the balcony and saw it from the corner of your... More

We booked this place based on the previous good reviews on tripadvisor and I must say that all the good comments are all true. We booked 3 bedroom apartment and it's spacious, comfortable, spotless, full modern facilities with fantastic view of the lake. The staff are all very helpful and gave us (1st timer in Queenstown) some very good advice... More

My husband and I made this our first stop on our recent visit to South Island. What an ideal place! The view from our large windows in the living room and kitchen was stunning. Some of our best photos from our trip were taken right from our balcony. The place was spotlessly clean and the people who worked there were... More

Although apartment is gorgeous you just can't stop looking out through the glass wall to the lake view. After a friendly warm greeting and easy check in. we were made very comfortable here with lovely cosy romantic bed room (big bed), great shower, well equipped modern kitchen, dining / sitting room & wifi. Oh! and there is a full laundry... More

My family of four arrived in Queenstown toward the end of our trip after staying in several places throughout New Zealand. The Villa was our favorite place to stay. It was private, quiet, and the views are breathtaking. We booked a two bedroom apartment overlooking the lake. The furnishings were modern, clean and comfortable. Loved the shower, heated towel racks,... More

Two weeks ago, the 5 of us (2 adults and 3 teenagers) had the good fortune to stay at the Villa Del Lago in one of their 3 bedroom units for 3 nights. Everything about the facility was great, it was a nice walk to town and easy cab to airport. It was very new, quite clean and the management... More

We stayed for two nights and the apartment was brilliantly appointed and had wonderful lake and mountain views. Charlotte was very helpful and had pre booked a Dart River wilderness trip as well as a Doubtful Sound overnight cruise for us. Location is outside the centre but provides a pleasant 20 minute walk in, along the lakeside path. Great base... More

My husband and I just got back from a trip to New Zealand (Queenstown area for 5 days) and Australia (10 days) and tried to keep our hotel expenses down to around $200/day. Without question, Villa Del Lago was the nicest place we stayed. The owners are super friendly and nice. They were even happy to give us a little... More

I was unsure whether it was a good idea to stay 1.5 kms out of the main town, but it was in fact a brilliant idea. The views from Villa Del Lago are stunning and world class. Plus the 20 minute walk into town is along the Frankton Track and also beautiful. Staff also very helpful and friendly. Will stay... More
