This was a great place to stay. The managers were very friendly and helpful. The accommodation was perfect, well maintained, tidy and well stocked with the essentials. The location was perfect, right in the heart of Wanaka with stunning views across Lake Wanaka. Offered us a late check out which was very much appreciated and free luggage storage. I really... More

The apartments have it all. Family with teens on skiing holiday had plenty of room within our unit with easy access to ski shuttles. Full well-equipped kitchen for dining in, however, most Wanaka restaurants are within a 5 minute walk. Washer/dryer within the units, and daily servicing of apartments. Our unit was on the ground floor but we still had... More

The stunning setting, proximity to the town centre and bus stop, and location just opposite a fantastic kids park, makes this a perfect choice for young families. Our apartment was incredibly spacious with 2 large bedrooms and bathrooms, laundry, a hall for ski gear, and an enormous open plan lounge, dining, and kitchen area. WiFi worked perfectly, facilities were great,... More

We turned up late afternoon without a reservation. We had not intended staying in Wanaka, so had no idea where to stay. We walked into Lakeside Apartments and were warmly greeted and showed an amazing room at a great rate. The apartments are amazing with an incredible view, full kitchen, laundry, luxury en-suite, massive tv in a comfortable living area.... More

Situated right opposite the lake with awesome views. A very short walk to everything and huge amount of space. The kitchen is very well equipped with every appliance you would need, or just walk around the corner to any number of great restaurants. There is a supermarket about 100 metres away with most of what you would need and the... More
