The apartment was lovely and the view was beautiful. The reception staff were very helpful with respect to the local restaurants. The price was very reasonable. We couldn't fault our stay, and would definitely stay there again.

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
