We spent three nights in a one-bedroom apartment at Peppers Beacon, Queenstown in November and it was lovely. Full kitchen, dining table, lounge with gas heater, washing machine and dryer, good-sized bedroom with lovely comfortable bedding but it did have a tiny little bathroom and minimal hanging space in the bedroom. A good-sized apartment with a huge balcony with outdoor setting overlooking the lake where we could sit and watch all the boats go out and just a short, flat 10 minute stroll along the water's edge to the town. The views of the lake and surrounds were equally as good from inside as the windows/doors are full length glass. There was an outdoor guest bbq also available.

We got a stay 3 pay 2 deal from Peppers which made it a very reasonable stay. Parking was underground and free. It might be worthwhile giving Peppers a call and see what they are offering, I always find it better to deal directly with the hotel rather than booking sites. Of course their tariff in July will be more expensive than they were in November I expect.

Breakfree Waterfront Appartments are where we stay with the family in Queenstown. Two bedrooms, both with ensuit, full kitchen, opposite the wharf where the TSS Earnslaw ties up and only five minutes walk from the centre of town with a balcony overlooking Lake Wakatipu that gives amazing views to the Remarks.

The bad news is that the rooms were a little tired during our last stay and the complex may well be booked out in July.

we stayed at villa del lago and my 65 yr old mum did not want to leave the apartment! can sleep 5 adults and it comes with 3 floors in 1 apartment. super spacious, faces lake wakatipu and the remarkables. comes with full kitchen too so that saved us breakfast and dinner money as we can cook and bake.

i have shared it on my page, you can read it if you like. wonderful place. we did not want to leave.
