We stayed in 3-bedroom apartment which is on the 3rd floor corner unit. It has HUGE balcony with 270 degree view of the lake and wanaka. The unit is spacious and very modern equipped with full kitchen facilities and living room. Very comfy beds as well. 3-BR apartment is perfect for a group of friends like us or a big... 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

I'm moved to report on an excellent experience at Lakeside Apartments. The location, in the centre of Wanaka is excellent, yet it isn't noisy. The complex is well constructed and thoughtfully designed. The amenities are excellent with good parking facilities, barbecue, pool all at a high standard. The apartments are well designed with excellent equipment - fridge, dishwasher, washing machine... More

I write this as we are on our last night of a 4 night stay here and we are quite sad to leave. We have loved every minute of our time at the Lakeside apartments and Wanaka itself. The apartments are really stunning. So well laid out, furnished, appointed and they are huge! They are very centrally located, have to-die-for... More

We stayed here two nights. We were in the area for wine tasting in the central Otago region. What a nice apt! It is so wonderful we decided to cook in! All the comforts of home, excellent views, laundry, comfortable furniture...who could ask for more!

These apartments have everything, including a washing machine and tumble drier. They are huge and so, so good - great view and balcony, fully fitted out with everything you could want, even 2 TVs if you have that need. The guy managing it, Gary, was great and so helpful. Definitely worth staying there.

Wanaka is a great starting point for a Southland walking and sight seeing visit. The drive from Queenstown is a bit long if you avoid the heights of the Crown ranges road (wise even in march). You will arrive at Lakeside very easily as it is situated exactly as it is portrayed right by the lake. Views superb as listed.... More

Brilliant view across lake and 100m to town. What's not to like? If Weather is good, use pool or have a drink on your balcony, if not, try the spa. Modern apartments with cooking facilities, or just eat out. Expensive but nice. Great if travelling with children or as couple. We've stayed both ways.

Not sure if you could find a better place to stay away from home. Were here on our honeymoon and got upgraded to a penthouse - how fabulous!! Gorgeous view and great location. Apartment had everything you needed and the whole complex feels very private. Can walk to all the restaurants and the amazing Cinema Paradiso. Was very sad to... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay, especially as I am sure there was lots to do at home after your honeymoon. Lakeside Apartments with the fantastic views, spacious apartments and private balconies make an excellent place to stay for honeymooners. And the central location means just a few minutes walk to breakfast, lunch and dinner -... More
