This is a group of condos which face Lake Wakatipu. It is on the main road leading to the city of Queenstown. It on the lake side of the road and the view from the condo was spectacular. There is a walking path down from the condo that follows the lake to the city and takes a good 20 -... More

We had a great stay and would definitely recommend staying here. The view from the hotel balcony was "remarkable", the washer and dryer (in the unit) was a bonus and the fireplace was almost a necessity given the cooler than average summer temps. The kitchen was very well equipped and even had a 4 burner cooktop and dishwasher. We also... More

The apartment was beautifully furnished with a gas fire (not that we needed it), patio doors to a terrace overlooking the lake. It was extremely well equipped with a full oven, washer, dryer, dishwasher etc and all were in good working order. It is in an ideal location overlooking Lake Wakatipu and we were able to sit outside on the... More

Stayed at Villa del Lago with our two teenagers in December. After staying in hotels it was great to have our own space and be able to spread out. View from the villas is beautiful across the water and very peaceful. there is a little walking track just below the villas which takes you all along the waterfront, great way... More

Well laid out suite with every equipment need catered for - fully equipped kitchen, laundry and rooms all very clean and of a great standard. Only negative would... More

Certainly not the cheapest in town but it has almost everything, oven microwave, dishwasher, cook-top, private internal laundry, gas fireplace, 2 x TVs and views to die for across the lake. Easy access to the walking/cycling track into town. It is 2km though, a bit far to keep the take-away hot if you walk. The other disadvantage is that one... More

My husband and I stayed here for four nights at the end of a tour of both islands. We had a spacious one bedroomed apartment which totally met our needs. Great kitchen facilities in the large living room as we mainly self catered. Also appreciated the washing machine and dryer which were in a separate room so did not disturb... More

Stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment for 3 nights, on the lower level, closest to lake path. View of lake and mountains was amazing and bed perfectly placed to wake up to it. Big bathroom with great shower, washer dryer, kitchen kitted out with all you need to cook a meal. As others have said, it is a 20 min... More

Since the moment we arrived we felt in love with the place, the apartment was so spacious, very clean and the set-up being on 2 floors it was perfect for our family as we were travelling with 2 small children. Nichola did our... More

Absolutely beautiful place with great views, friendly helpful staff and clean spacious rooms. The only negative, which may not be a negative to everyone, is the distance from town. It is a15-20 minute walk. Taxis are very easy to find and then it is a quick few minutes.
