Greeted by Keith (owner ) on arrival, escorted to a beautiful 1 bedroom apartment with a fantastic view of " The Remarkable's" mountain range and the lake. Cosy loungeroom with quality fittings , an expensive bed that I loved, and a patio area. My wife woke to open curtains and a view out to the mountains with an overnight snow... More

I stayed here from Feb. 3. to 6. 2010. The apartment has very high standard, and the view is awesome! The hosts were very friendly and service-minded. Fully equipped kitchen, beautiful bathroom, and bedroom. There was a big flat-screen HDTV in the living room. Everything about Villa Del Lago was perfect. If (when) I return to Queenstown in the future,... More

I am so glad the weather turned cool & we decided to cancel our campervan, otherwise we would not have stayed in this fabulous accommodation. I will sum up the qualities as follows: Gorgeous spacious apartments, so comfortable and relaxing, Really cosy with gas fire. The best lakeside views with no road noise. Lovely friendly owners & staff who can't... More

We loved our time in Queenstown & loved the place we stayed - Villa de Lago had awesome views over the lake and the Remarkables and it located right on the lake - very quiet from vehicle traffic and a great way to watch the arvo/morning slip by with the boats on the lake or the clouds over the mountains!...

The villa had amazing views of the lake and mountains! It was beautifully finished to a high standard and there was far more space than I was expecting. The managers/staff could not have been any more friendly or helpful....we checked in early and out late, which helped us a lot given we had flown from San Francisco. The staff booked... More

We stayed at Villa Del Lago for four nights and everything was just perfect. Arriving late at night, we had to wait until morning to appreciate the unbelievable view our apartment had over Lake Wakatipu, it really was amazing. The apartment was very well maintained, spacious with flexible living and bedroom areas, warm, tastefully furnished and great value for money.... More

We came to Queenstown from our home in Wellington for a four day break. What a fantastic place, we loved it so much we wanted to stay! The trip was made all the better by our choice of accommodation. Villa Del Largo was perfect. Great accommodation and a wonderful vista overlooking the lake and the remarkables. The hosts were great;... More

Would stay at this property again. Quiet, peaceful location on lakeside. Room was warm and comfortable. Particularly appreciated the gas flame fire. Proprietors were helpful and accommodating. Only one problem, no opening windows and it got quite hot and stuffy during the night. The ventilation fan was too noisy to use when trying to sleep.

We stayed at the Villa Del Lago for 3 nights during our trip to NZ. Our hosts Lynn and Keith were wonderful and were always on hand to answer any questions and helped us with our bookings. They even lent us some DVDs to watch, which was great on the one night that it rained and we stayed in. We... More
