Oak Shores offer some of the best views of the Remarkable Mountain range across the lake. The property is on the Queenstown trail. It's only a short 20 minutes walk into downtown Queenstown. The accommodations are top rate. The staff is extremely friendly.

I have stayed at Oaks Shores a number of times, most recently over the weekend during Winter Festival. There was a group of 5 of us that stayed in a 3 bedroom lake view apartment for 2 nights. The views from the lounge room window and balcony are fantastic. The whole apartment is quite spacious, especially the lounge and dining... More

The New Zealand south island municipality of Queenstown can be approached in two main ways, either by coming over the mountains by road, as we did, or by flying into its local airport. The latter is slightly hair-raising as it is one of the world's more challenging landing strips sitting, as it does, between high peaks on either side. The... More

Oakshores was an unreal place to stay. The serviced apartment was absolutely spectacular with amazing balcony views of the lake. However, what made this place so amazing were the staff - incredibly friendly, understanding and considerate. This was across the board, from the reception (Toni and Jade and all the rest) to Garry Telford - what a guy! The second... More

Dear BoydsAct, Thank you very much for your recent review on Trip Advisor.

We loved staying in these apartments. New, stylish and very comfortable. Each bedroom had an ensuite which we loved. Just wish we could have stayed for longer. Very central to Queenstown and close to the airport. Good parking
