Our one bedroom De Luxe Apartment with private balcony had a great view of Lake Wanaka, and designer kitchen and full size dining area. All the furniture and fittings are top class. The apartments are all very big indeed and yo even have your own designated garage. The swimming pool looks good - we didn't get around to using it.... 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

Having dishwashers and washing machines to hand, make those longer stays more pleasurable. Not long ago we upgraded many of the apartments with new beds and carpets, and the comfy beds are often well rated.... 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

I wanted to buy the apartment I was so impressed with both Lakeside itself and the hidden gem Wanaka. You could not get a better location in this spectacular little town, views over the lake and the mountains on the other side. It is right in the middle of town so you can walk to most places - you will... More

I highly recommend this place and would certainly stay here again given the chance. My partner and I were travelling around the South Island and initially booked 3 nights here, but after looking at the location decided to stay for 5 nights. Fabulous location right by the water's edge. You can't get any closer to Lake Wanaker. We stayed in... More
