Just spent three nights here and it has been perfect. Not cheap but if you are looking for a treat then this delivers. The location is perfect. Our apartment was top notch. Truly lives up to online images. Definitely recommend.

We turned up and initially had to wait a few minutes as Gary was dealing with an older man at reception who just wanted to pass the time of day. He was patient and polite whilst remaining professional. It was actually nice to see. When it was our turn to be dealt with, we were told we had been given... More

Lovely apartments in the heart of Wanaka. Fantastic location. Wonderful views. Big apartment. Well equipped kitchen. Beautifully furnished. I would not hesitate to come again. If they have a vacancy - book it. You won't be disappointed.

The kitchen is fully equipped and stocked with wonderful cutlery and plates selected with great taste. Enjoyed an afternoon sitting on the veranda in lounge chairs overlooking a magnificent pool with a... More

We love this place, our 3rd visit in 3 yrs. Having good weather made it perfect, because we wanted to enjoy the pool and relax during our 3 wk journey. Stayed 5 nights, the longest we have stayed anywhere in NZ. Since this trip was more of a revisit of our favourite places we were able to enjoy the accommodations... More

Huge apartment, stocked with loads of kitchen equipment and appliances. Bedroom and bathroom all great with double sink. Large TVs for living room and bedroom. Laundry room inside apartment too with detergent ready to use. Didn't have time to try pool (right next to road) but looked nice. Parking in garage was very convenient. Really close to centre of town... More
